DIY : Candle Centerpiece with flowers for Christmas .....

Hi  friends, How have you been ? Hope have put up the christmas tree and decked up your home for the festival season... !!!  I have already put up the tree - but there's lot more to be done with very little time left..Hope to complete everything in a day or two......  I promise to share the pictures soon... ;-) ;-) 

For this festival season, I tried out a simple floral centerpiece with  roses and greens - This is how the flower arrangement looked with a few more co-ordinating tea lights and some christmas ornaments simply strewn around. - It takes just 15-20 minutes to get everything done ;-) Hope you will try this out for christmas and let me know how it turned out ;-) ;-) ...!!




Materials Needed :
Flower of your choice - 3  or 4 ( I used roses / carnations)
Fillers  ( I have used white statice flowers, baby's breath and cypress tree leaves)
Floral Foam (Brick Shaped)
Plate - 1

Cut the floral foam lengthwise into half and soak it in water for 5 minutes. 
Place it on the plate.  

Cut the stem of the carnations
( approx equal to the width of the foam) and place them 
at the corners as shown above. - Leave space for the candle at the centre. 

Place the fillers (White statice flowers) horizontally at the edges.  

  Now add the cypress leaves at the edges, under the statice flowers. Cover the remaining space completely with filler of your choice - I have used baby's breath flower here.

Cover the sides of the foam with a ribbon - Pin it on the edges.

Place the candle at the center - Cover the left over space with baby's breath flowers .

Now here's the completed arrangement ....!!

  1. Let me count the things I love about this-the combination of white and red, your table cloth, your choice of flowers, the gold ribbon covering the foam giving it a classy look...all in all, a very pristine looking elegant centerpiece! When lit up, even more so!
