With Christmas Day just a few days away, we've put together a special round-up of the key Floral Christmas Trends, which have been featured by florists on Instagram over the last few weeks. 

Get ready to be blown away by spectacular hotel installations, an amazing variety of stunning wreaths and beautifully decorated trees, plus vase arrangements, mantelpiece designs and even a festive chuppah!

Simply scroll down to discover the trends that are appearing on front doors, in hotel lobbies, offices and homes throughout London...

Naturally Inspired

Proving to be a real hit again this year is the natural look. Foliage heavy designs with a wonderful assortment of textures have been complemented with dried and frosted fruit, berries, cones and twigs. Steel-grey eucalyptus pods have also been a very popular choice!

Glitzy Metallics

Opulent gold, silver, copper and bronze creations are gracing many a hotel, office and front door. Metallic baubles and asparagus fern appear to be the main focus. But also look out for the odd peacock!

White Wonderland

With its ethereal nature, asparagus fern also features in many of the wintery white designs this year, whilst phalaenopsis orchids, roses and amaryllis are providing the floral element to arrangements.

Traditional Tones

And of course, the traditional colour of Christmas, red, in the form of blooms and berries, remains a hot favourite for wreaths, vase arrangements and mantelpiece designs.
