Easy DIY Holiday Centerpiece : Pale Pink Amaryllis, Magnolia Leaf & Cedar Flower Arrangement

For Emma's party I wanted the create a very soft and feminine flower arrangement that would be fitting my soft and feminine little lady.

Just as I designed her invitation (here's the post about the invitation) to just have a glimpse of Christmas, I didn't want the arrangement to be overly "holiday," but I wanted it to be appropriate for the season.  I think it is important to always decorate seasonally - arrangements seem to "fit" better when the seasonality is considered... not to mention flowers that are in season are easier to find and of a higher quality.

I selected these soft pink amaryllis along with magnolia leaf and cedar sprigs.  The arrangement came together very easily.

Here you can see the shiny green and velvety brown magnolia leafs - my favorite.  They are so easy to use and seem to "make" any arrangement I use them in.

Here is the arrangement on the night of the party with the cakes in the center of the table.

Here are the Easy DIY steps.  You can certainly use red amaryllis for a more traditional holiday centerpiece for Christmas.  I think you'll see how easy it is!

Start by placing the cedar sprigs in the vase that is filled with water.  Trim the stems before you put them in so they just drape over the sides.  

Next, insert the amaryllis - I used three stalks that had 3 blooms each.  

Finally, insert the magnolia leaves around the base of the flowers.

Here is the easy-to-pin step-by-step!


  1. I am obsessed with this center piece! Thank you for sharing! LOVE YOUR BLOG

  2. I love that you didn't use flowers that scream HOLIDAY. The pink is so sweet with that greenery.

    Stunning. Where does one go to purchase the light pink flowers? I am only familiar with the darker pink. Might I ask for the name of your font that says Pink Amaryllis? Thank you.

    1. The font name is Perpetual Titling. The pink are easy to find as plants!

  4. That is so gorgeous. It makes me want to get dress up and sit and sip tea with my girls.

  5. I just love this. Haven't seen pink amaryllis anywhere, but did see some pink peony I could pull this together with. Love the contrast with the cedar..... romantic and sweet! ❈

  6. Jenny - what a beautiful combo! So perfect for the season and occasion! : ) Rachel

  7. Simply superb………..marvellous…

  8. So very pretty Jenny, I love the softer colours of these gorgeous flowers.

  9. Wow!!!!lovely peach and pink flowers collection, you have placed the flowers too perfectly, the green leaves with the pink flowers simply look stunning.
