Welcome the holidays with this gorgeous pink magnolia holiday tablescape.
First we'll start with the step-by-step tutorial on putting this fabulous magnolia centerpiece together, then we'll get to all the ways we have accented it to create a stunning tablescape. With every step, it gets more beautiful!
Gather your materials.
Step 1: Place the piece of floral foam inside the vase. It does not have to fit the entire shape of the vase, simply cover the base of the bowl. Use a regular knife to cut the foam to fit, if needed.
Step 2:With floral tape, create a criss-cross pattern to hold the floral foam in place.
Using wire cutters, carefully trim the magnolia leaf stems, leaving about 1/4 of the stem. Then push the flower stem into the lower sides of the floral foam, creating a base.
Carefully trim the velvet magnolia stems. Keep these stems the same size, this will create a rounded arrangement. Push the stems into the sides and top of the floral foam.
Use the leaves that were removed from the magnolia stems to fill in any gaps and cover any visible floral foam.
Step 5:Next, trim your peony stems. Push them into the floral foam between the pink velvet magnolia stems.
Step 6: Then trim the smaller magnolia floral stems. Cut these at varying lengths to create a sense of depth and contrast to your arrangement. Place these in any areas there are gaps, or that needs a color break.
That should complete your arrangement!
Now, to create a beautiful tablescape for your arrangement.
Gather your materials.
You will need a table runner, chargers, plates, silverware, 4 candles, 4 candle holders, Christmas ornaments and place cards for each plate, a pen, scissors, and a lighter. We used 6 sets of tableware, this number may vary depending on how many you are seating.
Step 1: Carefully cut your table runner with the scissors to fit your table length.
Step 2: Set out your tableware. First lay out your chargers, then set the plates of top of them. Then, set your silverware.
Step 3: Personalize your table cards with each guests name, and lay them out on the plates. Hold onto the pen for some fun in the next step!
Step 4:Take your pen, and wrap the wired stem of the Christmas ornament around the pen to make it curly. Then set it along side your place cards on the plate as a festive little accent!
Top off the entire look by placing your previously created floral arrangement in the center of the table!
Place your candles in the candle holders, and place them around the arrangement.
And your stunning holiday tablescape is complete!
