A white Christmas is something we all dream of, but for people who live in the Southern Hemisphere that is a bit of a challenge. We will persevere though. We loved this Starry Christmas set-up because it was very easy and there were very little flower arranging skills required.
We decided to use the plants and flowers that are in season to create our Starry Christmas Wonderland.
Mini trees, these are the ones we got from Woolies.
White Amaryllis, these are gorgeous right now. You can plant them in your garden when they’re done and they’ll flower again next year.
White Agapanthus, they’re in season and they are glorious.
Mini White Orchid
Rosemary & Ruscus, or any green leaves will do.
Variety of containers, we used tins, wire pots and baskets
What we did:
When we made the Watermelon trees for our Very Melon Christmas post we made some extra and left them unpainted.
We made the clay stars a few years ago with our kids and they still go on the tree every year. We used Tips from a Typical Mom’s better than salt dough recipe. Tips: you need a lot of baking soda and you need to work fast. It dries quickly and remember to make a hole for the string.
The lightbox and stars are from Typo. We’ve used them for many table settings, theme parties and as décor in our homes. A definite must have.
The garland has also been used many times. We printed stars onto board, cut them out (this takes a while) and then we sewed them together with a sewing machine. They add some whimsy to the most serious affair.
We used tins, wires and basket containers. It was all very rustic and you’ll agree it’ll be easy to de-Christmas this whole scene for New Year. Simply remove the trees, use glass and or, silver or gold containers and add a few silver or gold bits instead.
This table setting works for the entire festive season.
