To create an elegant Christmas table I was inspired by this blue tableware from the designer store Froh & Sinn in Zurich. I suggest a welcome floral arrangement in a light blue vase if possible, 3 bouquets of white roses for your centrepiece and a small bouquet for each guest placed on a blue napkin. Add a cozy atmosphere lots of snow and candlelight for some true festive spirit.
For the welcome floral arrangement, you will need:
- 1 medium branch of Norway pine
- 1 medium branch of silver pine
- 2 small branches of cypress with pine cones
- 2 berries of silver brunia
- 2 berries of white St. John’s Wort
- 1 stem of blue Sea Holly
Start with 2 slightly overlapping big branches, add some silver cypress at different heights and finish with a bunch of berries on the front. To add some sparkle thread a string of led lights among the branches.
For the rose bouquets, you will need:
- 6 stems of fully blossomed white roses
- spruce (as much as you may need)
First remove all the leaves from each stem and create your bouquet using the criss-cross technique (have a look at the video in the link). Finally cover all the stems with small branches of spruce that you prepared earlier and tie with a ribbon.
