DIY Holiday Decorating: Christmas Floral Decorations

The holiday season is a magical time of year, and what better way to embrace the festive spirit than through the beauty of Christmas floral decorations? At Bedford Village Flower Shoppe, we’re delighted to guide you through the myriad ways you can adorn your living space with the colors and fragrances of the season. From traditional poinsettias to classic Christmas wreaths, here’s how to elevate your holiday home décor with these Christmas flower arrangement ideas.

Choosing the Right Christmas Flower Decorations


With their iconic red and green foliage, Poinsettias are synonymous with Christmas. An iconic holiday bloom with a rich history, consider making poinsettias the focal point on your mantel or adorning your entrance for a warm welcome. Ensure their longevity by providing indirect light and allowing the soil to dry between waterings.

Christmas Cactus

Embrace the unique, contemporary beauty of the Christmas cactus and its stunning blooming process during winter. Place them on windowsills or as a centerpiece on your dining table. These resilient plants require well-draining soil and moderate sunlight.


Amaryllis boasts bright, bold colors that can stand alone in a statement vase or be paired with other decorations. Allow them to shine on your coffee table or as part of a festive arrangement. Place them in bright, indirect light and watering sparingly.

Holly and Ivy

Incorporate holly and ivy in various forms throughout your home. Arrange them into wreaths, garlands, or as standalone pieces. You can also use holly and ivy as part of your Christmas tree decor! These traditional Christmas tree flower decorations add a touch of nostalgia to your holiday decorating.

Christmas Floral Centerpiece Arrangements

Dining Table

Transform your dining table – the focal point of holiday gatherings – into a winter wonderland with a carefully arranged floral centerpiece. Choose colors that complement your table setting and include candles for an extra touch of warmth.

Coffee Table

Consider subtle arrangements or single blooms on your coffee table. These understated accents can still make a powerful statement, especially when paired with candles and festive trinkets.

Tips for Designing the Perfect Christmas Floral Arrangements

When it comes to Christmas flower arrangement ideas, marrying traditional florals with cozy, seasonal elements is essential. For example, combine candles, baubles, and other festive pieces with your floral arrangements. The key is to strike a balance that enhances the overall ambiance of your space without overwhelming it.

DIY Christmas Wreaths

Door Wreaths

Holiday door wreaths create a welcoming entrance. Use a variety of greens, flowers, and ornaments to personalize your creation.

Window or Wall Wreaths

Window or wall wreaths can be crafted in various sizes and styles. Hang them in bedrooms, living rooms, or even kitchens to add a touch of festive charm.

Holiday Garland Ideas

Staircases and Railings

Drape garlands mixed with flowers along staircases and railings to create a sense of continuity and elegance throughout your home.


Adorn your mantel with layered garlands, stockings, and other Christmas decor. Play with heights and textures to create a visually appealing display.

Incorporating Seasonal Florals in Unexpected Spaces


When infusing the holiday spirit into your bedroom, go beyond the traditional. Consider placing fresh, seasonal flowers on your nightstands or adorning your bedroom door with a delicate floral wreath. 


Transform your bathroom into a holiday haven with the simple addition of a small vase of seasonal flowers. Whether on the countertop or by the bathtub, holiday blooms bring a touch of elegance and tranquility to this often-overlooked space. A vase of festive flowers in the bathroom adds a visual appeal and elevates the overall ambiance, making your daily self-care routine feel like a luxurious escape. 


The heart of your home deserves a festive touch too! Bring the warmth and charm of Christmas into your kitchen by strategically placing florals on the counter or using them as window decor. Opt for seasonal blooms in rich reds, greens, or whites to complement the cozy atmosphere of the kitchen. Fresh flowers in the kitchen add a decorative element and connect the space to the holiday festivities happening throughout your home. 

How to Care for Christmas Florals

Paying attention to their unique care requirements is crucial to ensure your Christmas flowers stay fresh. Begin by understanding the watering frequency each plant demands. While some, like poinsettias, prefer slightly drier soil between waterings, others, such as Christmas cacti and amaryllis, thrive with consistently moist soil. Be mindful of their preferred light conditions – some florals, like poinsettias and amaryllis, flourish in bright, indirect light, while others, like Christmas cacti, appreciate a bit more shade.

General care tips include ensuring proper drainage for the soil and preventing waterlogged roots that can harm the plants. Regularly remove spent blooms or foliage to encourage new growth and maintain the overall health of your Christmas flowers.
