27 ways to use flowers in Christmas decorations and arrangements
Flowers such as roses, amaryllis and vibrantly colored poinsettias make wonderful Christmas flower arrangements to add to your holiday decor. It does not require the skills of a florist to make it. Here are 27 ideas for using flowers in Christmas decorations and arrangements.
Poinsettia with silver accents
The flower queen of Christmas decor and design, the poinsettia is a must for your holiday style. The Ice Punch variety has white and silvery leaves. You can create a variegated look by adding silver spray paint to red poinsettias (such as Better Homes & Gardens 8-Inch Live Poinsettia Plant with Ceramic Vase, $33, Walmart). Place these Christmas flowers in a beautiful silver bowl to show off the sparkle.
White paper with twigs and cedar branches
Go French country style with crisp white leaves and slender branches arching from old terra cotta containers. Add flowing cedar branches along the base of your pots to create the perfect display for any mantel, shelf or coffee table.
Evergreen and flowers
A few evergreen branches add a seasonal touch to a simple red flower arrangement. Arrange large red flowers such as ranunculus, peonies, tulips or carnations to get the look. Decorate a Christmas flower arrangement with cut branches.
White lily and fern parrot
Look beyond the typical colorful flowers of Christmas decorations and flaunt the two-tone parrot tulip petals. Play with its drawn lines by adding plumosa fern to the bouquet and spruce cuttings at the base in a metal serving tray. Continue the color theme by filling clear containers with blue, green and metallic ornaments—new or vintage.
Small forest environment with roses and hydrangeas
Take cues from nature for a unique arrangement featuring red roses, white hydrangeas, Hypericum berries and pine branches. Get creative with your container by covering it with decorative bark from deciduous trees and accenting the base with different colors of reindeer moss.
Amaryllis is two-colored with greenery
Embrace the tall stems of amaryllis by displaying their blooms in a tall, simple but elegant pitcher or vase. Include several evergreen branches such as spruce and holly – a bonus if your holly branches are still holding their fruit! Finally, you can decorate them with seasonal decorations: vintage ornaments, colorful bows, and souvenir tea towels.

Winter white roses and fresh fruits
Nothing beats the scent of fresh roses. So include order in your holiday decorations by placing your favorite variety in a beautiful festive bowl. Fill with fern cuttings and evergreens. Crunchy fruit, such as pears or apples, is a great filler for this Christmas centerpiece idea.
Beautiful pink and white poinsettias
