If you feel like you’ve blinked and this year is almost over, I have to agree! Christmas comes round faster and faster each year and I for one cannot wait to get into the festive spirit.

Everyone loves decorating for Christmas and I think there is nothing more festive than decking the halls of your home with lush and fragrant Christmas flowers, arrangements and garlands.

Whether you decide to hang a glorious wreath from your front door, top your mantel with winter blooms or wrap garlands around the banisters, decorating with different types of Christmassy nature has endless possibilities. The winter greens together with gorgeous and bright berry branches and colorful wintertime flowers mean every inch of your home can be festive and fun.

While traditional holiday flowers include poinsettia, ivy, and mistletoe are festive, there are so many more ways to infuse the festivity of the season into your floral décor. For me, I am a huge fan of cymbidium orchids. These eye-catching blooms bring exotic glamour to Christmas with their long lasting, beautiful blooms in soft colours.

Another great way to add an extra flair to your wintertime décor is a planted container. I love to fill these with bulbs, hellebore and jasmine which look great anywhere in the house. They also make fabulous Christmas table centre pieces!

For something different, forgo the traditional red and green palette and instead use a mix of natural elements. I adore gorgeous rustic pots filled white flowers, mini topiary, herb, hellebore and plenty of moss.

If you want something different this year for your friends and family what about gifting one of my Christmas planters? Everything is sustainably made and the pots can be refilled and re-used so they really are the living gift that will keep on giving all year round.  So much fun, and a memory to cherish throughout the seasons.

I look forward to seeing you soon, and starting this magical season together.

Lots of Love
