We all know that the food is the star of the Christmas table – but that doesn't mean you can't have a pretty centerpiece to show off, as well. This elegant floral-and-fruit design is a great way to add a little extra pizzazz to your holiday tablescape; it also makes a beautiful hostess gift. The key to making this arrangement look clean and balanced is the grid of floral tape that we've created on the vase. Place stems evenly around the grid, spacing out your larger, focal flowers with smaller filler flowers or fresh greenery. Once you've created a solid base for your arrangement, nestle in some colorful fruit. Apples are a pretty option and won't ripen too quickly, and pomegranates give deep color and shine to a bouquet. If you're looking for something a little more textured, try adding a whole artichoke to the arrangement.
