Flowers may not be the first thing to spring to mind when it comes to Christmas. However, the tradition of sending flowers as a gift at Christmas or even decorating your own home with fresh Christmas flowers is very much alive and well. Christmas bouquets, flower arrangements, Christmas plants and wreaths come in an assortment of festive colours, shapes and sizes so there's sure to be something to suit your needs.
Types of Christmas Flowers
One of the most traditional floral decorations for the home over the festive period is a wreath. These are usually comprised of winter foliage such as holly, pine cones, spruce, lichen, berries and similar ingredients. Often finished with sparkling ornamental touches such as glitter, Christmas wreaths can be hung on doors to extend a warm and welcoming feeling to visitors to your home over Christmas and New Year. Wreaths are often designed to be used year after year but be sure to carefully check what it is made from and whether or not it is suitable for long-term use in advance; some fresh wreaths are intended for one-off use only.
A fresh floral arrangement cannot fail to enhance any festive occasion, whether used as a decoration for your home or a gift for a loved one. Christmas flower bouquets usually feature predominantly reds and greens and can include popular stems such as carnations or roses as well as more unusual additions such as pine cones, cinnamon sticks, berries, apples and other decorative elements. Some of these more decorative features may also be gold dipped or applied with glitter for a glitzy finishing touch.
Among the most popular Christmas plants is the poinsettia, a plant which is indigenous to Mexico and renowned for its utilisation as part of festive floral decor schemes. If you fancy something a bit more unusual, why not opt for the Schlumbergera cactus plant, also known as the Christmas cactus. Found in mountainous regions of south-eastern Brazil, this cactus is a lot leafier than its desert-based counterparts. Amaryllis plants are another thematic Christmas plant. Native to South Africa, these plants are available in a wide assortment of different colours. As you might imagine, red is by far the most popular choice when it comes to the Christmas season.
Christmas flowers, plants and wreaths are great for introducing a smattering of festive magic to your home, whether you are seeking a wreath for a door or a bouquet for a windowsill. Christmas flowers also make for a splendid gift - it's a one size fits all present and there's no worry that they will already have one or won't need one as can be the case with some other types of gift. With this in mind, feel free to peruse our full range of Christmas flowers, plants and wreaths above.
