Hello again friends. There is something about Christmas and the holidays that makes my creativity explode. lol
I’m here again today with some of my friends sharing some pretty Christmas centerpieces. I’m sharing this pretty Black and White Elegant Christmas Centerpiece.
If you’re coming from Stacy’s blog. Welcome!
Isn’t her centerpiece just so stunning? I love the step by step instruction. It’s so useful.
I got all of my flowers from the grocery store and I used a mixture of real and faux. I love combining both because you can create gorgeous arrangements, reuse the faux stems and at the same time, save money on fresh flowers.
I started with this brass bowl that I picked up from a thrift store a few years ago. I then placed a smaller bowl to hold the water.
Instead of using floral foam, I’ve been using chicken wire. This is a great alternative and it works just as well.
I did something a little weird and I apologize that the photo is blurry. But I wanted these daisies to coordinate with the rest of the black and white theme so I used acrylic paint and painted the center. The almost look like anemones. I’ve had the arrangement for about 5 days now and it didn’t affect the flower at all.
Here’s a closer look at one of the painted daisies.
I recorded a video of the process so you can refer to it HERE.
I start by placing the greenery around the vessel and slowly start to place the flowers in varying heights.
The faux flowers and greenery are usually placed outside the water bowl. In this case, the juniper, the magnolia leaves and flowers are all faux.
I also added a couple of black ornaments to add a different texture and again to continue the black and white theme.
You can of course use this as your centerpiece or just a regular arrangement on a coffee table.
Please don’t forget to check out the rest of the beautiful arrangements from my friends below.
Sending you so much love,
