When used in home décor, florals can boost the atmosphere of a room in an instant. In fact, according to the art of feng shui, some flowers are said to have special powers when placed in different arrangements and numbers. These flowers allegedly lend help with love and romance, health, career, balance and domestic happiness to name a few. And during the festive season in particular, your entire home can blossom too with some gorgeous Christmas florals staggered throughout your Christmas décor.
To help get amongst the ‘power of flowers’, our handy floral gurus at The Christmas Cart have pulled together a list of eye-catching tips and tricks on how you can make your Christmas décor blossom with gorgeous Christmas florals. Take a look at some of the following ideas.
Make an impression from the get go with a Christmas wreath full of eye-catching Christmas florals hung on your front door. A wreath on the door is a simple and joyous way of welcoming people to your home. And wreaths can look just as amazing used throughout the home to inject instant festiveness with Christmas florals, greenery and other decorative pieces.
Following are a few ideas on how you can make use of a wreath as Christmas décor inside the home.
#1 Christmas Floral Wreath Centrepiece
Transform a bland space into an instant focal piece with a Christmas wreath laid flat in the middle of the table. Use a Christmas wreath base of lush greenery, driftwood or leaves, then add some of your favourite Christmas floral sprays and picks. We especially love Christmas flowers that are embellished with jewels or glitter to make this centrepiece idea really pop.
Once you have your wreath completed, place a Christmas candle in the centre of the wreath to create a glowing masterpiece. Alternatively, stack an array of Christmas baubles in the centre or add one of our gorgeous light up Christmas scene ornaments.
#2 Christmas Wreaths on the Wall
Wreaths are typically displayed on the front door to welcome your guests. They’re also the perfect way to capitalise on the space throughout your home! This year especially, hang some festive cheer in the form of Christmas DIY by showcasing some pretty wreath creations. If you want to really maximise the space and festive spirit, link multiple Christmas wreaths with beautiful wired ribbon.
#3 Christmas Wreaths on a Stand
If you like the look of a Christmas wreath but are limited on places to hang one inside your home, a Christmas wreath stand introduces the opportunity. Showcase a wreath with stunning Christmas florals anywhere you need and, as our wreath stands are height adjustable, why not grab a couple to stagger the levels and truly bring any space to life. The versatility of a wreath stand means you can place it on any flat surface to display your Christmas décor anywhere you fancy!
Garlands with Christmas Florals
Christmas garlands are simply perfect for creating volume and depth throughout your décor. Typically, with a lush backdrop of greenery, garlands are an ideal nesting place for some gorgeous Christmas florals. And they take little to no effort at all.
Garlands can be laid flat on items such as mantlepieces, tables, buffets, and sideboards; or they can be hung and draped around doorways and banisters. For an extra sparkle of Christmas magic, add some glitter-covered Christmas florals, festive picks, and sparkly baubles, then weave some seed lights throughout the foliage for maximum impact.

Christmas Floral Place Settings
You can instantly jazz up your Christmas table with pretty Christmas florals simply by adding a Christmas floral pick at each place setting for your guests. Set them atop or beside the plates, push a pick into your linen napkins, or create a little festive touch by tying florals on the back of each chair.
Christmas florals provide a decorative touch to an often-under-used asset when it comes to Christmas décor.

Christmas Floral Centrepiece
One of our absolute favourite ways to make use of gorgeous Christmas florals is by creating a centrepiece or two for display. Our range of Christmas floral picks and sprays were designed to make it very easy for anyone to create their very own Christmas floral masterpiece. Here are a few quick ideas.
Using an assortment of sleighs, metal buckets, bowls, and vases, arrange Christmas florals in each to create various heights and sizes. Arrange the décor together with some table top Christmas trees for ultra-impact on your Christmas table, mantle or buffet.
If you’re feeling a little more adventurous, grab a florist bowl and foam from our craft supplies to make a Christmas floral centrepiece, just like the florists do!
For a lovely centrepiece that is super easy to create yet offers plenty of wow factor for the effort, just add some Christmas florals to one of our table centrepiece candle holders.
