Curiosities such as milk starbursts grab attention in a centerpiece of pinecones and greens. Repurpose serving pieces as candleholders and tiny planters to add charming interest.
Red and white cheer
Carnations top a rectangular glass vase covered with candy canes. Attach candy canes to the vase with a hot-glue gun; anchor flowers in floral foam. If you like, spray canes with coats of clear acrylic spray to avoid stickiness. Finish with ribbon and mint.
White chrysanthemums and branches of white pine (Pinus strobus) make a striking winter centrepiece. A birch-look pillar candle anchors the arrangement in the centre of a wooden bowl.
To create the arrangement, cut florists foam even with the top of the container, wet the foam and set it in the bowl. push the candle in the centre, then insert pine branches and mum stems into the foam. Try white spider chrysanthemums, white football mums and white garden mums for a variety of blossoms. Tuck a bit of grey-green dusty miller around the edge for a finishing touch.
Foot-high yew trees, with root balls nestled in moss, look fresh lined up in a galvanized tray. Anchor with white and purple eggplants for an all-natural centrepiece.
This easy red-and-white arrangement complements any Christmas table.
Fill a large white ceramic bowl with white-and-red-tipped carnations. Stand a white pillar candle in the center of the arrangement. If needed, place the candle on a block for extra height. Use battery-powered candles for safety if you prefer.
A tall, clear cylindrical vase supports amaryllis blooms in just a few inches of water. Put cranberries in the bottom and wrap a bright red ribbon at the waterline. A sprig of greenery continues the holiday theme.
