Wondering what the big floral trends are this Christmas? Well, we've scoured florists' Instagram accounts to suss out what's in favour for the festive season.

Read on to see what's 'decking the halls'. And look out towards the end for some particularly spectacular installations!


We're witnessing gorgeous examples of the popular natural, rustic floristry style in fresh foliage heavy designs. They're complemented with textural elements provided by berries, twigs, seed heads, herbs, pine cones, spices and dried fruit. This year, strawflowers (Helichrysum) also appear to be a favourite addition to wreaths.

The shimmering precious metals of gold, silver and copper are very much in prevalence - from glitzy baubles, shiny sprayed leaves and sparkling twigs to ethereal asparagus fern and textured pine cones.

This romantic Christmas look of cool wintery white and frosty icy blue is gracing many a hotel, restaurant, office and front door. Tactile textures by way of twigs, pine cones, asparagus fern and even cotton mingle beautifully in this magical, yuletide decorating theme.

The classic combination of deep berry red and dark green remains a hot favourite. Also look out for the occasional splash of muted orange in this nostalgic, timeless theme.

Adding a luxurious pizzazz, adorning doorways and restaurants is 'Festive with a Twist'. Glamour, elegance and chicness, in the form of jewel bright baubles in a kaleidoscope of rainbow colours or a Christmas tree worthy of a Harry Potter movie, how breath-taking are these quirky designs?
