Hi, I'm Phyllis Cambria, the co-owner of Partyplansplus.com. In this clip, I'm going to show you how to make a Christmas floral table centerpiece. You'll need a block of oasis for fresh and silk flowers. You'll need a basket. You'll need Spanish moss. You'll need silk poinsettias. You'll need fresh flowers. You'll need pine sprigs. You'll need decorative adornments. You'll need ribbon. Okay, we're going to start with our basket and the first thing we're going to do is add some Spanish moss to the bottom. We're doing that for a couple of reasons. One, it will act as the base to the oasis which has now been completely soaked in water. Now, the first thing I'm going to start out with are the poinsettias. Now, you may wonder why I am using silk poinsettias instead of fresh. Well that's because poinsettias, while beautiful, can be very poisonous. Now, the next thing I'm going to add is some fresh pine. Not only does it add a fabulous fragrance, but it gives real life. Now, to give it some contrast, some life, I'm going to add in some beautiful baby roses. Alright and sometimes it's easier when you stand to evaluate your florals. Now, I'm going to add some decorative floral elements, and now, the final touch. Now, doesn't that say Christmas? This has been Phyllis Cambria. Thanks for watching.
