BEAUTY IN EVERY MOMENT

HOW TO BRING BEAUTY

TO YOUR TABLE THESE HOLIDAYS

With Ben Avery @thecolourblindflorist

I really believe that creating a beautiful table setting is what sets the scene for a memorable celebration. Every year my family tasks me with setting up the table to gather around and it really brings me so much joy during the festive season.
 

With Sephora I have put together a 'How To' when it comes to decorating your table these holidays.

 

I’ll be spending the holiday period with my family up the coast. We always start with a champagne breakfast, opening of presents and then the beach. For gifting, as there are so many of us, this year we have started a family secret Santa. This is where Sephora comes in!

I love to really experiment with colour and shapes in all of my arrangements as well as slipping in small beauty surprises for my family and loved ones to discover over the course of lunch.

BEN'S TOP FLOWER TIPS

Step One

Setting the tone.

Be fun with your flower selections, go for the odd ones that you are drawn to.

When you are putting together a brief, don't let a mood board hold you back, embrace the current seasons and go for what really catches your eye at first glance.

Step Three

Step Four

Dressing the table.

To dress a table I would recommend a selection of vases, some old and some new. Try unusual glass wear or ceramics that you have around the house. I use Sake bottles, candle holders, shells and wine glasses. This can make it feel full without relying on heavy arrangements. 

Arrangement is everything.​

When arranging your flowers, ensure you are telling a story along the entire table. If you go high with a single flower remember to go short with another to allow for levels and rhythm throughout the vases. Remember you will also have food and beverages going on the tables so be sure not to over crowd. 

Final touches.​

Cut the stems of your flowers and put them in water within 30 seconds as the stem will begin to close over. You need to allow them to drink also! Hold your stem up to the vase to ensure you are cutting the right amount off each stem. Some flowers can even be placed directly on the table.
