majestic mix

Blending floral and nonfloral components, this captivating centerpiece embraces the Christmas season.

    This dramatic centerpiece features simple yet visually substantial components that are densely arranged in a picture-perfect tabletop gathering. Fresh apples are laid into the center of the composition along with spherical ornaments—all in the same color family—that provide a reflective quality with their mix of shiny and matte surfaces. A smilax wreath, laid atop the lip of the urn and secured to the plastic foam inside the urn with Dixon pins, creates a “well” for the apples and ornaments and provides a textural collar around the base of the design along with the sprays of permanent petite apples and leaves that are glued to the smilax wreath.

MATERIALS:
Smilax Wreath from Knud Nielsen Company; 36-inch Velvet Apple Sprays from Autograph Foliages; urn from Allstate Floral & Craft; Styrofoam™ Brand Foam from FloraCraft Corporation; Dixon® Pins from Dixon Products; ornaments from favorite supplier; fresh apples from local market.
