Pair velvety red with chartreuse green to give the classic Christmas colors a fresh update. Start with a silver punch bowl. Round shapes work best here. To make arranging easier in a wide container, use tape to make a grid across the top of the punch bowl. Add chartreuse-colored hydrangeas at each corner. Then add flowering cabbage toward the center and sides of the bowl, and pack in roses between the hydrangeas. Fill in with sprigs of red hypericum berries and white pine.
Florist Tip Rotate the centerpiece to make sure it looks full from every angle. Add more hydrangeas, if needed.
