December is the month to get together with friends and family for more elaborate dining. Using anthuriums is an easy way to add a special touch to these gatherings. That’s because this colourful cut flower and houseplant is perfect for table decorations, no matter what the style: from lavish and elaborate to retro, and from minimalistic to romantic. Over the coming weeks, we’ll be giving you a number of ideas for incorporating anthuriums in your holiday decorations.

Botanical Christmas decoration using anthuriums

A botanical Christmas is one of this year’s trends. Green isn’t just trendy as a colour – it can also be used in the form of both actual plants and plant prints. So why not include these in your Christmas decorations? For a rich elegant table setting, use both anthurium flowers and plants. Bright red anthuriums would make a good choice:
