Christmas Table Decorations: Floral Arrangement Idea

Make flowers more festive with eucalyptus pod jingle bells

The towering oak trees of Jordan Estate–with their evergreen foliage and swaying moss–were my inspiration for this holiday dinner table floral arrangement idea. This festive tablescape brings a hint of Christmas decorations and a touch of California wine country to your dining room table during the winter months.

The natural beauty of the floral centerpiece’s red clovers, acorns, Hypericum berries and eucalyptus pods–the latter painted silver to create a natural cluster of jingle bells–all say December without shouting Santa Claus. The acorns were a staple food source for the Pomo Indians (Sonoma natives), and I use them in the Jordan dining room as a symbol of our hospitality. To create a seamless theme for the table, I incorporated different portions of the centerpiece into individual placesettings at each seat—a sprig of red clover, a string of silver eucalyptus “jingle bells,” an acorn cluster–to accent each napkin. Surprise your guests by writing their names on a clothes pin at each place setting. You may also want to sprinkle a few votives around the centerpiece to set the mood; those pictured are vintage Rosenthal egg cups from my home. This centerpiece’s wood container was purchased from Sequoia Floral in Santa Rosa, California. This tablescape was also featured today in “Gather Around These Inviting Wine Country Tables” on California Home + Design’s website.

I’m planning to use this holiday dinner table idea for my New Year’s Eve party at our home. I hope these photos inspire you to create your own tablescapes. If you have any questions about floral design or event decorations, please feel free to leave a comment. Happy holidays!
