white-candles-decoration-christmasFlowers can be a brilliant way to decorate your home at Christmas. They bring a more natural feel to a room’s décor than some ornaments and decorations. You can also use flowers to add colour to the table on Christmas Day and can play a huge part in your festive decorating.

We’ve chosen the top 10 Christmas flowers you should have in your home this year…



Red roses are ideal for Christmas. The deeper shades go perfectly with seasonal greenery, such as holly. For this year we suggest to use them in an original way such as place holders (together with cinnamon sticks)  or seat decorations.



Although poinsettias are a popular as a plant, they do work well as cut flowers too. They can be arranged in a vase or used as a gift. If you add a nice box of chocolate it can be the perfect choice for any chocaholic!

This bouquet features some beautiful chrysanthemums and hypericum berries. The white colour brightens up this bouquet and looks perfect for a Christmas table. Using white or cream chrysanthemums you can make sure your Christmas colour scheme still looks bright and inviting.



If you want to steer clear of the traditional green and pink colour scheme, then orchids are ideal. These exotic flowers come in many colours, but the pink and cream ones used in this Christmas table and seating arrangements are particularly striking.

Carnations come in all sorts of colours making them perfect for Christmas. Reds look fantastic paired with greenery, white ones could be part of a Christmas table decoration. They are a traditional and long lasting choice and you can save some money without compromising on elegance.



The exotic lily can make any home look bright and cheerful in winter – exactly what you need at Christmas time! With the addition of powder pinks and thistle blues, complemented with fresh green holly and spruce, it’s a soft colour palette which will make your house decoration warm and glittering.

These anemones look particularly striking with their black centres. Monochromatic Christmas decorations are becoming increasingly popular – especially black Christmas trees decorated with white tinsel and wintry accessories. These flowers would match wonderfully.

These little flowers are elegant and look perfect when paired with roses. White ones would look stunning against a backdrop of red roses or you could go for a crisp white arrangement with similar coloured flowers, such as cream carnations and white roses.

Calla Lily

These elegant flowers do make beautiful additions to any home Christmas decorations. They could be cut down and paired with green leaves to make an attractive fireplace decoration for a very essential and elegant design style.

White hyacinths look perfect when paired with other flowers of the same shade. The small petals work well with larger flowers such as roses or anemones.
