Christmas Home Makeover: photos and video

by Charlotte.Barnes on December 16, 2011

We ran a competition for one lucky person to have their whole home decked out in festive flowers by one of our expert florists. Thank you to everyone who entered, we had more than 15,000 entries!

Diana Petrie won our festive flower competition and her prize was to have florist Janet Boast decorate her home with beautiful Christmas

Take a look at the video of Diana’s experience and the transformation of her home…

For her colour scheme, Diana chose green, red, silver and gold and Janet was then able to choose a selection of festive flowers, foliage and other materials to match the personality of Diana’s home.

Diana says: “It never crossed my mind to have someone come and put flowers in the house… it takes it to another step.”

Janet used a range of flowers, including roses. She also added dried fruit and cinnamon to some of the arrangements to give Diana’s home a beautiful Christmas scent. She says: “When we arrived with the flowers Diana was over the moon!”

Each arrangement was completely bespoke and designed to Diana’s specifications. Janet took into account the surfaces she’d be working with, the size of the rooms and what she thought would work with the décor.

Diana says: “I like the fact that the flowers are so contemporary, modern and fresh.”

However, unfortunately Diana’s cat Biggles didn’t look too impressed…
