Hello dear friends and readers, it looks like I'm sloooowly on the mend! I still need to be patient, and rest in bed, even if I'd have tons of things to do for the move! Will vent about that another time;) Cannot add mental weight to what's already heavy now.
Here are some festive centerpieces I made over the past few years, using greenery from the garden, natural elements gathered in the woods, and cheap flowers purchased at the supermarket.
I love this one I made with fir branches and ivy simply laid on a golden tray with a big candle in the middle, fresh apples, gilded walnuts, pinecones, cinnamon sticks and golden baubles. As easy as a pie!
This one has been made with soaked oasis (on a plate) as support for the foliage and flowers, and a vintage candle holder in the middle.
A florist lantern filled with oasis and embellished with ivy, fir, roses and white glittered brassica, provided a stunning centerpiece for the Christmas table! If you don't have a support like that I used, you can virtually use any shape (round, cubic, ...) cut out from the foam, or a traditional glass lantern.
Small bunches were tied up to the ladies' chairs with satin ribbon, and used as favors. If you prepare them in advance, keep outside until the very last minute, in a jar with water.
Here, Christmas ornaments and natural elements were arranged pleasantly on a gilded plate. Super fast and easy peasy!
