Christmas GarlandUsing beautiful fresh flowers at Christmas is a great way to enhance your festive decorations and bring natural scents to your home.

As seen on OK magazine online, our Designed to Order service is perfect for those that plan to colour coordinate their schemes this year and need bespoke arrangements to achieve a glorious look. As part of this specialist service an experienced Interflora florist will take your brief and create something truly special for your home based on your favourite flowers, colours, style or budget.

Just take a look at some glorious examples of what our Designed to Order service can achieve.

Traditional Garland

Christmas Garland for Mantlepiece

Garlands are making a big come back this year and will make a statement wherever they are displayed, be it a staircase, table or mantelpiece. Why not ask your florist to incorporate fragrant spices such as cinnamon sticks and cloves or even dried oranges to add to the festive ambience. This echoes the great European tradition of using cloves and oranges together, typically as pomanders to hang around the house, spreading a wonderful scent throughout the home.

Opulent Wreath

If you simply cannot face unpacking those same gold, red and green Christmas decorations this year, why not plan a departure from the traditional and opt for something altogether more glamorous. For a contemporary look warm pinks are a great alternative to traditional reds and look wonderful next to purple. An opulent wreath like this is sure to be a cheery sight all through the festive period.

Table Settings

Christmas Table

The Christmas table is without a doubt one of the focal points of the whole Christmas period. It’s where toasts are made, crackers are pulled and the Christmas dinner is enjoyed. Make sure yours is dressed to perfection with a stunning centrepiece made from fresh flowers and don’t forget individual place settings for the final finishing touch.

Rose Chair Backs

Flowers aren’t just for the mantelpiece or the Christmas table. These stunning chair backs combine holly, berries and blue thistles, together with sumptuous red roses and are sure to wow your dinner guests on Christmas day.

As well as making lovely decorations, flowers are also the ideal gift for Christmas; whether as a special delivery to someone you can’t be with, a thank you to someone for their hospitality over the festive season or as a Christmas gift for someone you care about. There are many inspiring gift ideas in this year’s Interflora Christmas and Winter Collection including a range of beautiful bouquets, plants, Christmas Hampers, personalised gifts and experience days.
