Hypericum Berries

Dress up your tabletop surface with an arrangement that looks just like mistletoe. Combine branches of hypericum berries with sprigs and branches of pine.

Ranunculus and Juniper

Brighten up your space with bold pops of red and green using a mixture of cut ranunculus stems and branches of juniper and cedar. The slight variation in green hues will add depth to the finished look and texture against the pretty, soft shape of the ranunculus.

Parrot Tulips

White and green parrot tulips are very versatile and can be used to create formal, casual or high design looks. For a classic holiday touch, pair white and green parrot tulips with Dusty Miller. The small touch of dove gray will break up the green and white and also introduce a nice, rich texture.

Birch Branches

Birch branches are great for adding height to an area and creating a more architectural look. For a more rustic approach to holiday decorating, combine birch branches with cedar and pine cuttings in a unique container or ice bucket. Here, a vintage camping container adds a touch of woodsy plaid to the organic arrangement.

Potted Evergreens

Potted evergreens are perfect for year-round use and can be especially effective during winter months for adding a touch of classic holiday charm. Keep the overall look simple by planting evergreens in pots covered in organic materials such as burlap, linen or birch bark. For a more finished look, cover the top of the potting soil with moss.

Red Tulips and Juniper

While pastel-toned tulips are often associated with spring, red tulips are a perfect fit for the holidays. For a bit of texture, mix in juniper sprigs.


Alstroemeria is one of the most affordable and widely available flowers. For a more refined look, pick up alstroemeria bunches from the supermarket, then edit them down to a single color (red or white work best). Cut each stem low for use in a short container. Add another layer of visual interest with galax leaves placed around the container's edge.

Snapdragons, Dusty Miller and Pansies

Add a mix of short, tall and low-sitting vases with snapdragons, Dusty Miller and pansies. Use the snapdragons for height, place Dusty Miller around the base of the snapdragons, then bridge the gap between the two with white pansies.

Red Roses and Wax Flower

Red roses are timeless, romantic and available through supermarkets and floral shops year round. For a sweet farmhouse vibe, pair red roses with wax flower, then fill in the extra space with a mix of cedar and pine cuttings.


For a wild and free holiday arrangement, pot camellia into medium or tall box planters, then add a layer of rich green around the base with peat moss. The pinkish-red tones of the flowers will add a romantic vibe to your holiday setup.
