People who know me and are familiar with my work recognize my deep appreciation for roses. A glance at my portfolio reveals that they are indeed among my favorite flowers. I specialize in creating luxurious event and wedding floral decors, so I use every opportunity to incorporate roses into my daily practice, and creating centerpieces for a beautiful Christmas table decor is no exception! This table decor is versatile and would look fabulous not only for Christmas, but also for New Year celebrations, Engagements, or Winter Weddings; this combination is not only rich and bold, it's also sophisticated and elegant.

Last year, I used roses to create a Christmas table decoration featured in the Homo Faber Guide — an initiative by the Michelangelo Foundation that promotes European craftsmanship, of which I am a proud member. This year, I'm thrilled to have the chance to design a special festive table-scape featuring the stunning Red Naomi roses from Porta Nova, the world's largest and finest grower of Red Naomi roses. Producing an incredible 60 million high-quality Naomi roses annually, this world’s leading nursery is truly remarkable!

My Red Naomi Rose Table Design

For this particular design, I selected light blue silk, complemented by cream and gold table linens, allowing the Red Naomi roses to stand out. I’ve also added golden accents and pine cones, enhancing a festive atmosphere and creating a luxury feeling. The selection of light blue is in alignment with Thursd's recent announcement, they named Sky Blue and Bright White as the Floral Trend Color of the year.



The Red Naomi roses, with their deep red color and velvety touch, were of outstanding quality. Arranged in a contemporary style, they formed a natural, organic floral runner. I hope that the images showcase their beauty.

Sustainability & Simplicity

In terms of technique, I embraced sustainability and simplicity. I arranged these exquisite flowers in large golden vases and small English porcelain vases, including the special vintage Aynsley Pembroke vases with an 18th-century design. Japanese Kenzans were used for shallow vases to create shapes.

To add a touch of current trends, I incorporated shimmering golden bow ties — a nod to the obsession with bow ties in both the wedding and fashion worlds. I placed them along the wave of the red roses garland and on candle holders.



My Red Naomi Christmas Card

Although not a model myself, I posed with my table decor for the Christmas card, as I know Porta Nova appreciates shots featuring beautiful feminine models. I hope this design brings joy and inspires you to explore unconventional color combinations and materials not only this Christmas season but far beyond.
