Fall to Christmas Floral Arrangement



Click to Enter my GIVEAWAY


Who says all your Christmas decor has to be red and green?  It seems more and more people are using non traditional Christmas colors in our seasonal decor.  I just recently did this silk arrangement for a tablescape at my shop.  I'm not ready to take it down and because I do have other, more traditional table settings and decor throughout the shop I decided to see if I could make this work for Christmas.

I dug through some of my Christmas decor and found some floral picks containing a rusty colored, clear beaded pomegranate, red berries, gold leaves and pine tree sprigs.  I also found these picks of glittered gold strands with amber beads.  Floral sprays and picks can be purchased for about $1 a piece, and after Christmas at least 1/2 that amount.

To this arrangement below, I simply added the picks and floral sprays (about 10 total for this large arrangement)

I added amber lights under the sheer, scrunched up valance and now my centerpiece looks like this.  
 I got these amber colored lights on clearance last year.  I am always drawn to this color.







and here's a sneak peek at a traditional table I did at home with Masons Vista.  It just appeared in a local publication today!  Hooray!  I will show it all tomorrow night along with some great information on Masons.



Until then, I'll be partying at the following:

  9. Swoon, those are my colors, too. One of my wreaths is nothing but "fall" items. I don't know that I've ever seen amber lights - what a great find. Nancy, if you would like to link up this or even your giveaway to Fabric Fun Thursday, I'd love to have you. Hugs, Kim
