If you’re hosting an event this holiday, or just enjoying some of the beauty of the season, these flowers will transform your tabletop.

There are only two ‘ingredients’, which make it an easy arrangement for anyone, and the contrast of deep green against the bright white is striking enough to turn heads. Lilies are classic for Christmas and, combined with evergreen, they offer the perfect delicate feminine twist.  This entire arrangement cost under $10 and it looks so chic!

The secret to an arrangement like this is to cut the stems short (about 2 times the height of the vase) and to add 1/2 the greenery first, and 1/2 last.

If you start by making a grid with four sprigs of greenery, you can then wedge your flower stems within the green and fill in any blank spots with the remaining greenery after you get your blooms where you want them.  Done!

I hope your Thursday is wonderfully relaxed and festive!

 

P.S. The title of this post may or may not be paying homage to my first Dave Matthews Band CD that I accidentally broke this week.  I got it as a Christmas gift from my older brother when I was in middle school and although I haven’t listened to it in years (maybe a decade!) it made me a little sad.  Goodbye Under the Table and Dreaming. he he!
