Many people choose floral themes for their Christmas trees because flowers can symbolize life, rebirth, and beauty–themes align well with the festive season. They can also bring a fresh and unique aesthetic compared to traditional Christmas decorations. This could be why JLO chose to add beautiful red roses to her Christmas tree. 

Why Floral?

Using flowers as ornaments can bring feelings of renewal, hope, and a wonderful celebration of rebirth and joy. Flowers bring diverse colors, shapes, and textures that can be used for festive decorations, from deep red poinsettias to beautiful white lilies, red, or even the soft pink of roses.

Another thing to keep in mind is the flower design adds a touch of elegance. Whether using fresh, dried, or artificial flowers, the tree has a more natural, earthy feel. Designing a Christmas tree with flowers and matching color ornaments would be one of those elegant Christmas party themes you can never go wrong with!

You can decorate your hot cocoa bar, cocktail bar, gingerbread house, and coffee table centerpieces with the same type and colors as your Christmas tree flowers.

While this is not “traditional” Christmas decor, a flower-themed Christmas tree can be a breathtaking centerpiece in your living room for the holiday season and this time of year. It shows nature’s year-round beauty and is a reminder that hope and renewal can be found even in the coldest times.

How To Do It?

  • Choose a Tree: Select a fresh or artificial Christmas tree. Opt for a green tree or a snow-flecked one, depending on your preference.
  • Placement of Lights: Before adding flowers, ensure your tree is pre-lit, or wrap your tree with fairy lights or LED string lights. Warm white or soft colored lights usually complement floral themes best.
  • Decide on a Color Scheme: Choose colors to complement each other (like pink, white, or red.) You can also go for contrasting colors for a bold look.
  • Select Your Flowers: Use a mix of real and artificial flowers. Real flowers can be dried or fresh. Popular choices are roses, poinsettias, orchids, and lilies.
  • Prepare the Flowers: Trim stems to a manageable length (about 3-4 inches) for real flowers. For artificial flowers: Fluff out the petals to give them a natural appearance.
  • Begin with Larger Flowers: Insert the larger flowers evenly throughout the tree. Push the stem into the tree branches to ensure they are securely placed.
  • Add Medium and Smaller Flowers: Fill in gaps with medium-sized flowers. Use smaller flowers as fillers, providing a good distribution of colors and sizes.
  • Add Texture: Use other greeneries, ferns, feathers, or butterflies for added texture and depth.
  • Add Ornaments: Choose ornaments that complement the floral theme. Hang ornaments closer to the tips of branches for better visibility.
  • Ribbons & Bows: Intertwine ribbon garlands through the tree or make bows from floral-patterned ribbons.
  • Keep it Fresh: If using fresh flowers, spritz them lightly with water to keep them hydrated. Avoid placing the tree near heat sources or in direct sunlight.
  • Finishing Touches: Place a complementary tree skirt or a blanket of faux snow at the base.
