We know you probably just spent an hour unraveling that box of fragile glass ornaments, but you’re going to want to pack all that back up ASAP, because there’s a new Christmas decorating trend in store this holiday season: floral trees.
The stunning trend seems to have taken off shortly after blogger Bri Emery shared a tutorial on her site Design Love Fest. In the post she writes, “To make the tree, cut the stems down to about 2 or 3 inches so that the flowers can just stick right in the tree. On some of the larger flowers we wrapped them with wire to make sure they stayed secure.” Bri recommends choosing three or four colors and also explains that she used silk flowers for this project to make it last longer.
If you want to copy the look but with the real deal (because then OMG how amazing would your living room smell?!), this could be a fun last hurrah for your tree before you officially take it down (the buds won’t last long sans water) OR, if you’re up for the task, you could attach one of these floral water tubes to the snipped stems to preserve them for longer.
Ornaments, we love you, but this trend might just be what our 2015 Christmas needs.
