Christmas is coming and whilst the high street have got us thinking about Christmas trees, candles and decorations, here in flower world it’s also time to think about our Christmas flowers. There are plenty of beautiful, unique ideas which you can use to bring beautiful festive florals into your home. We’ve got some great ideas for adding that extra special touch to your home this winter.
Christmas wreaths are a great addition to homes and are the perfect way to decorate the front door of your house, no matter where you live.
Typically wreaths feature traditional festive flowers and leaves including holly, ivy and spruce. I like to add some red ribbon to create the festive look as well as cinnamon and pine cones to add that deliciously Christmassy scent. There are plenty of themed wreaths you can choose from with classic and Nordic-style wreaths proving popular in recent years.
Your home is sure to be full of guests over the Christmas period, so a nice floral table centrepiece will provide a welcoming addition to your home, as well as making a lovely feature as part of your Christmas dinner. You can go for a traditional Christmas candle arrangement, use an ornamental vase that you already have or try something with wicker or a jug for a more ‘shabby chic’ feel.
Popular designs include those with green foliage and red flowers such as carnations as well as red and white Roses. I always like to add sparkly pine cones and birch to add to the festive feel of your arrangement whilst adding some gold or red ribbon will provide the perfect finishing touch.
Christmas is the time of year where you can really inject some fun into your decorations. We’ve created some really fun packed floral designs this year, from Christmas sleigh arrangements to our now famous Christmas Pud!
Be bold and let your imagination loose with those forgotten containers lurking at the back of the cupboard – perfect for a festive flower arrangement.
Contemporary Christmas Bouquets
If your home has a more contemporary décor, then you might prefer to add a modern bouquet to your Christmas decorations. Using a vase of your choosing to house your arrangement, you can add some of your favourite flowers in red shades such as Amaryllis and Cymbidium Ochids.
Winter white flowers also look fantastic, allowing you to incorporate Lilies and Roses in white varieties whilst still enjoying the Christmas theme. Add ribbons, glitter and other items in your chosen Christmas decoration colours to personalise your bouquet and match it to the rest of your décor.
Adding some festive florals to your home is the ideal way to add another dimension to your Christmas décor. Get creative by mixing colours to suit your home and enjoy the welcoming warmth these beautiful bouquets bring.
