Homemade Christmas Table Centerpieces
- Water the oasis floral foam of the fresh evergreen centerpiece daily to keep it wet and make it last longer.
- To check the level of water, you can use your fingertip and pour the water slowly with a water bottle until you have replenished enough water that was consumed in one day.
- It is better to display your fresh centerpiece arrangement on a platter, so that there is no danger of spilling mud and water on your washed and ironed spotless tablecloth.
- An easy way to make a table centerpiece is to collect some flowers with long stems, strip off the leaves from stem's bottom part and insert them into the foam.
- You can also use candles to enhance the decoration of your centerpiece. However, keep in concern that if you are using burning candles as the centerpiece during Christmas feast, place them more than an inch apart, so that they don't melt each other.
- For candle and fresh flower arrangement, use oasis floral foam to hold flowers and florist candleholders to hold candles for more safety.
- Fresh, flat and supple cedar boughs from which needles from the bottom have been stripped off before inserting into the foam, varieties of evergreens to add colors, red, white and fresh flowers such as roses and carnations in other colors, pine cones and artificial and sparkling silver and golden glass ornaments can be used to make several interesting centerpieces.
