Christmas comes but once a year – and as a result, when you unpack those glittery garlands and favorite ornaments, they can often be a little mustier than you remember. As you’re blowing off the dust on your treasured holiday decorations, consider adding something fresh to your décor beyond just a tree or wreath. Here are 7 creative ways to incorporate fresh flowers into the holidays this year.

Festive Holiday Centerpieces
When you’re hosting dinner events the rest of the year, chances are you invest in a fresh bouquet of flowers to liven up the table – so why should the holidays be any different? Add a fragrant burst of color and festive spirit with a centerpiece that incorporates bright red or white roses and holiday favorites like evergreen branches and pine cones.
You’re probably headed to a million and one holiday parties this season – and the host is likely to get a dozen bottles of wine. Why not spice things up with a fresh cut hostess bouquet in a vase they can use again and again? Chances are they won’t remember who gifted them which bottle of wine – stand out and put a smile on the host’s face for days after the event with flowers.
Long Distance Presents
It’s not always possible to be ‘home’ for the holidays with everyone you love. If you’re apart from a friend or family member, you can still show them you’re thinking of them with a gift wrapped bouquet. Teleflora actually enlists local florists in cities across America, so you can rest assured knowing the flowers are fresh as can be and delivered by hand instead of shipped in a box (meaning no fear of them arriving frozen!)
Too busy to decorate the office? You can still add a little festive flair to your front desk or entryway with a miniature tree that’s decked out for the season. Shaped like a Christmas tree, these little plants are hand arranged using noble fir to give your reception space that woodsy pine smell. Plus one lucky employee can bring it home while you’re closed for the holidays.
Last Minute Gifts
Did you forget someone on your list? Don’t have time to dash out to the stores? Believe it or not, you can order flowers from Teleflora all the way up till December 24. With local florists on call in hundreds of markets, your dream floral arrangement can be handcrafted and delivered in a flash – plus the recipient will have a gorgeous keepsake vase they can fill with flowers year-round. You can even add a balloon, chocolates, or a stuffed animal to round out the present.
Deck Your Halls
If you’re hosting a holiday event and want to add a touch of classic Christmas charm, there’s no quicker way to deck the halls than by adding a wreath. A real wreath with noble fir will give all of your guests a waft of Christmas spirit before they even set foot indoors. Plus it makes for a cute family photo op on Christmas morning if you can wrangle everyone onto the front steps for a quick photo under the wreath.
Customer Thank You
The holidays are typically a time to say thanks in the business world, in particular to your most loyal customers. If your customers are widespread, Teleflora can do the work for you. Just pick a classic holiday floral arrangement – like a poinsettia and fruit basket – and local florists will not only arrange everything by hand, but ensure it gets delivered on time too.
