When it comes to Christmas décor, I think it’s time to shake things up a bit. Bring out all your candles, candle stands, vases, fancy crockery and let’s see how we can use them along with some local botanicals to do something different this year.
To get started, I made a trip to the local fruit, flower and vegetable market, and found elements to play with to decorate the Christmas table. This is what made it to my décor shopping list: apples, plums, pomegranates, red grapes, pumpkins, drumsticks, peaches, eggs, etc. The final setting is economical, organic and of course, unique.
From Mumbai’s largest flower market in Dadar, I found some classic red roses, tall anthuriums, and fresh supari roots. A bunch of eucalyptus leaves, table palms, Monstera leaves to act as supporting elements. Please note that all of these plants are grown in large quantities in Mumbai, Bangalore, Kolkata, Kerala etc. and are available at the local market. Use my tips as a foundation but otherwise let your imagination flow and play with the elements as you like.
