simple holiday flowers

November 13, 2010

These are the blooms we chose to work with for our vintage modern holiday displays. Mini Calla Lilies, Anemones, Dahlias, Leucadendron + Peonies

An assorted variety of vases including a few from West Elm (white + silver vases_ + our hand-wrapped vases using decorative craft paper.

Adore these West Elm vases. Perfect for simple + doable table flowers for a modern, elegant look.

Here I have combined a vintage heirloom vase with more modern + textural blooms to create a vintage modern appeal. To the right, the same vintage vase is paired with one our hand-wrapped glass cylinder vases to add interest. For info on how to wrap your own vase, click here.

Love the way the chocolate – colored Dahlia + pinecones pops against these silver + white West Elm vases

I was recently asked, if you enjoy modern + organic decor for the holidays, how do you use flowers + avoid the general red + green. For the holiday, just like any time of the year, I throughly enjoy monochromatic +  textural arrangements for my home.  This  modern simplicity can be revealed through your bloom selection, just as much as your vase selection.  It is a lot of fun to combine various vases into one table arrangement, each containing a few blooms or to even choose decorative paper to change your plain glass vase up a bit. This is just so impactful, and allows you to combine different patinas, and textures to create interest, and it takes far fewer flowers, and easy for one to accomplish. I adore how these came out. For my table, it will the white peonies, dark dahlias, branches galore +  pinecones. What will your table adorn this season?
