How to choose your special Christmas floral and balloon decor!

Do you want to add some luxury to your Christmas table? With so many beautiful floral arrangements, fun balloon characters and stylish balloon bouquets to choose from, read on to find out more about what options are available and then decide what fits your requirements best!

Flowers

Of all the floral Christmas décor the most traditional is a wreath. Choose from real or artificial foliage and flowers to add some colour to your front door, or to place on the grave of a loved one.

Try adding some magic to your Christmas table with a beautiful floral centrepiece! A combination of rich red flowers, ivy berries and deep green or silvery foliage looks truly stunning. Consider the shape of your table – if it is rectangular, then opt for a ‘long and low’ style arrangement, and if it is circular then a round floral ring will look and fit better.

If your table is small or going to have very little available space, then opt for a smaller posy style arrangement or a Christmas cracker with a  floral display sitting inside it. If you’re likely to have more room consider a circular design with a glass vase and pillar candle inside to give a soft, pretty glow while you’re all gathered together.

Balloons

Christmas balloons are a perfect way to inject some seasonal fun into your celebrations!

If you want to grab your guests attention before they can even smell the mulled wine, then opt for a balloon column outside! Choose from a range of seasonal characters, a giant round latex balloon or a big foil star! Or  how about a column with a character sitting on the top, holding a bouquet of festive balloons?!

If you’re looking for something a bit smaller, my cheeky snowmen have become a firm favourite with my clients! Use these as an alternative table decoration or as an unusual gift for someone.

Helium balloons are also a great option if table space is at a premium, and with a huge range of colours available, there will definitely be something to fit with your chosen Christmas colour scheme.

Whatever you choose, I wish you a wonderful Christmas and a healthy, happy and peaceful New Year!
