It’s officially the season of dinner parties and elaborate festive tablescapes. No need to panic though; Savoir Flair has you covered. Begin by browsing the gallery of artfully stunning festive flowers from Pinterest above, before diving green thumb first into Dubai-based Art & Flower’s step-by-step guide to creating a floral arrangement for your own holiday table below.

Festive Floral Arrangement Step 1

Step 1: A beautiful floral arrangement starts with your flower selection. Opt for seasonal florae such as antique hydrangeas, which are available in Dubai from the beginning of December through to mid-May.

For Savoir Flair’s bouquet, Art & Flower used a combination of hydrangeas, roses, eucalyptus, alstroemeria, trachelium, and branches of a salix tree.

Step 2: Place the eucalyptus in the flower oasis, a wet foam piece used to secure plants in vases.

Step 3: Start layering your bouquet by placing the biggest flowers at the base – in this case the antique hydrangeas. To get an organic look for your arrangement, stagger the blossoms and avoid clumping color groups.

Step 4: Add festive-appropriate accents to your blooms, such as bright green trachelium. Aim to capture the tasteful spirit of the season without overdoing a Christmas-specific theme – i.e. no red berries necessary.

Step 5: Create texture in your arrangement by adding branches from a salix tree, which will give your bouquet an effortless and romantic feel.

Step 6: Choose a vase that complements, but does not distract, from your bouquet. The eye should land on the gorgeous textures and colors, not a glitzy statement-making vase.
