With Christmas just days away, we've gathered together a spectacular selection of festive floral designs from Instagram to share with you! There are wreaths, tablecentres, hotel and event installations... all of which have been created by florists for the 2015 season.

Read on to discover the trends that are appearing in shops, hotels, homes and on lots of front doors throughout London. They include Dazzling Metallics, Au Naturel, Pristine Pastels, Heartwarming Nostalgia, Snow White and Under Glass.

Dazzling Metallics

Copper, gold, silver and rose gold creations are in abundance. These gleaming tones bring a real sense of glamour, glitz and sophistication to arrangements!

Au Naturel

The natural look is proving to be popular again this year, with all-foliage designs gracing many a front door. Whether simply pared back or complemented with cones, berries, twigs or feathers, this pure botanical style is proving to be very en vogue.

Pristine Pastels

Pale pink and purple are the shades leading this trend. You'll find waxed fruit, faux flowers and natural flowers all showing that subtle colours can also be very effective at this time of year... and proof that they shouldn't just be saved for the warmer seasons.

Snow White

At several London hotels, florists have created magical 'White Winter Wonderland' installations with trees and tree-like structures very much taking centre stage.

Under Glass

2015 sees a new emerging trend with terrariums getting a seasonal makeover. Glass cloches and jars are being transformed into mini snow scenes with penguins, Christmas trees, snowmen and Nutcracker soldiers. Check out the McQueens blog and you'll see that they've even used festive 'peararia' (pear-shaped terrariums) at Claridge's!
