Fresh-cut flowers are a must-have for any kind of soiree; however, flowers can get very pricey. Give your event a similar look with potted floral, which can be used well after the party ends by either keeping it in its vessel or by planting it in the ground.
Put the floral filler from your grocery store bouquet to good use by editing it out and creating your own baby’s breath arrangement. Once the baby’s breath is removed from the flowers, cut it to size and shape it into a ball inside of a vessel.

Start with a full, lush Christmas tree and cut the flower stems to be about 5 inches long. Stick the flower stem right into the tree towards the trunk and the heftiness of the branches will hold the flowers up. Complete the look with gifts wrapped in red, pink and floral patterned papers. Sprinkle some rose petals at the foot of the tree to bring a touch of romance to your floral tree look.

Next, fill the space between the vessels with fruit cut into wheels using a paring knife. Add water to both vessels; then place your flowers inside of the innermost one.
Using real fresh flowers, create a true showstopper of a tree for a Christmas dinner party. You have two options when creating a floral tree: use silk flowers to have it last all season or use fresh flowers to design a dramatic Christmas tree for a special occasion. For this tree, I used non-traditional Christmas colors of pink, burgundy and mauve. Pink roses, pink lilies, white hydrangeas and red roses are inexpensive flowers that are readily available at your local grocery store or florist. Keep the color palette monochromatic and you can’t go wrong with a fresh flower tree.
Add an extra layer of creativity and color to your floral arrangements by placing fruit wheels inside of decorative vessels. To do this, you’ll need two vessels slightly varying in width. Place the smaller vessel inside of the larger one; then fill the gap between them with 1/4-inch slices of oranges, limes and lemons. Then add water once they’re in place. The innermost vessel will be used to house your featured floral.
