Having recently put together a Lebanese inspired baby shower I decided to keep the same color theme of coral pink for my holiday decor and add a lotus theme. Above is lotus flower wreath that I put together using items found at a dollar store! This was hung in our entry hallway along with a simple display of Christmas cards.
I love my pink poinsettia and branches tablescape! After laying down silky sari fabric in dusty rose and champagne colors, I made this arrangement using branches, faux pink garlands, fresh poinsettias, cranberry potpourri and gold ball ornaments. (alternate photo here)
Here's a closeup of how I displayed the glass vases filled with potpourri. One vase stood upright and the other was casually laid on its side so that the branches spilled out to create more of a tablescape. (This inspiration came at 3am the night before)
The fresh poinsettias were kept alive by using floral water tubes.
For favors, I made Christmas crackers using the bath tissue paper rolls that I keep for craft projects. Click here to see what's inside.
I found these 10" faux evergreen wreaths at a craft store. They originally had pine cones on them so I took them off and added a single glittery copper ball ornament and jeweled ribbon from an Indian fabric store.
This is my favorite arrangement of the day. We have been snowed in for about 2 weeks now are are seriously getting sick of it...so this arrangement manifests as a lotus blossom rising out of the winter snow and captivity. (soon I hope!)
Dinner was delicious and the company was fabulous! You can see a few more photos here...
