Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star
The right flowers, matched with small twinkling lights cast a warm glow over any setting. A great idea is to utilize floating candles or small tea lights amid white and scarlet flowers or aim for a more natural feel with pine branches or holly, and incorporate ornate, or clear glass ornaments for an added touch. Don’t rule out metallic gold, silver or rose gold for a vintage, classy and rich feel.

Simple concepts like the ideas above will help transform any space into a cozy and creative holiday cove. When in doubt, use seasonal objects for inspiration (much like the snow and candy cane idea) and experiment with different colors, flowers, candles, etc. Love a coastal theme? White starfish amongst green pine branches and gold shells will achieve this look. City themes with scarlet red candles, flowers, and small, battery operated LED lights (Walmart) will give an edgy, contemporary feel to a Christmas setting. Experiment and make sure that a little of your personality shines through when planning Christmas floral décor.
