The Christmas flowers and arrangements have got a special connecting role to the Christmas celebration. The flowers allays say something, especially Christmas flowers which say the most touching greetings, sending off warm feelings, fondness, love and generosity, because Christmas means gifts, luminosity, embraces, peace and a new beginning.
There are many types of Christmas arrangement: Christmas tree, Christmas table arrangement, Christmas coronet for entrance, doors or tables, Christmas candles arrangement, Christmas arch, candle natural holder etc.
You can buy some special arrangements from the flower shops or you can make them by yourself. It’s a special moment, it’s not difficult and we guarantee that you’ll love it. This would be a reason to join the family and to give a beautiful activity to your children.
There are as many Christmas arrangements as imagination is.
We present you one of the most easy to make. It’s a specific red-green Christmas arrangement:
Chose a ceramic vase or any vase you want. If the arrangement is a height one, the vase has to be profound, for its stability. For a horizontal flower arrangement you can use a floral dish.
- Use a floral foam purchased from a flower shop. You can moderate it in accordance with the vase dimension, using a knife (to make easier your work, you’ll round off the foam borders). Don’t forget to water it, so the flowers and plants will maintain fresh for a long time. Also you have to water the foam once at 2 days, to keep it long. There is a trick to prolong your rose’s arrangement life: put some lemon drops in the water and than water the foam.
You’ll need 15 red roses. Cut every rose in a very sharp angle, leave a stem that has from 5 to 10 inches. Stick the roses in the floral foam in five sequences by threes.
- Surround the roses with ivy leaves and small branches of pine, covering the foam.
- You can also assort a red ribbon (surrounding the entire arrangement, letting its ends to flowing free over the table) and a green or golden candle put in the centre.
