Ho ho ho…meet our full Christmas range!
This Christmas, The Flower Lounge has come over all magical, decking out the shop as an elegant winter wonderland featuring some very special, glittery guests.
After some lengthy discussions of how we could top last year’s beautiful Christmas display, we put our thinking caps on to come up with something bigger, better and more showstopping than ever.
For the first time we decorated the outside of the shop with lush green foliage courtesy of the amazing team at Irish Green Guys. We’ve been inundated with compliments from customers driving past. I love the mixture of green spruce and fir, tinged with silver asparagus fern, it’s such an understated palette but looks so elegantly festive.
The award-winning (courtesy of Didsbury Traders Association!!!) window display features a beautiful, snowy scene complete with magical white unicorns with glittery horns, adorable owls, silver birch trees, intricate snowflakes, a stunning, winter inspired bouquet and a huge sleigh, piled high with Christmas gifts.
We’ve been overwhelmed with the response to our Christmas window display this year! And that’s mainly due to our glistening, snow-white unicorn occupying pride of place. We couldn’t bear to sell her, so we’ve decided to put her enchanting powers to good use and run a prize draw in aid of Manchester and Cheshire Dogs’ Home. To enter, simply pop into the shop, make a donation and leave your email address. We’ll pick a winner at random on December 19th. More details here.
In store, we’ve continued the stylish, muted palette but brought it to life with irresistibly textured pieces and quirky, designs full of humour and personality. Our glass baubles, frosted with glitter, and adorned with wispy, feathers are a chic and unusual addition to the most sophisticated Christmas tree.
We also have a range of glass, living baubles, adorned with vibrant red roses or stylish succulents, as mini terrariums. These delicate and elegant baubles feature festive messages in beautiful calligraphy courtesy of Lucky Nibs. Perfect for a unique and thoughtful Secret Santa gift, stocking filler or a little, festive treat to yourself.
Plants continue to be a strong trend as we move into 2019, our display features a wide range of festive plants in beautiful pots including the gorgeous African Haworthia Fasciata ‘Big Band’ in the silver birch natural planter. Succulents make a perfect gift and a trendy alternative to the usual, host’s bouquet. They are long lasting, easy to look after and an impeccable addition to any stylish home.
Festive wreaths, garlands, and table centres continue to be popular with our customers. So, we’ve stocked a wide range of artificial and real varieties. Our fresh wreaths and garlands are packed with the best flowers, foliage and berries this season can offer. I love how the festive aromas of fir, spruce and eucalyptus are filling the shop as we create these one of a kind creations for customers to wow their guests this party season.
I also adore the delicious smell from The Naked Candle Company’s divine soy wax candles festive range. With choices such as Frankincense and Myrrh, Spice and Sparkle and Black Orchid, it’s difficult to pick a favourite!
And finally, my favourite part of our Christmas range…it’s got to be the festive flowers and foliage that epitomise this season. Ruby red Poinsettia, velvety winter roses, hydrangeas in vintage hues, statement amaryllis, festive Ilex berries, coniferous spruce, evergreen fir and deliciously scented, silver eucalyptus. All the ingredients necessary for a beautiful, seasonal, hand-tied winter bouquet. It’s an absolute classic of a gift, that every host or lucky recipient would be over the moon to receive.
Whether you’re looking for an elaborate floral display, a lavish garland, a simple table centre arrangement or a pretty gift bouquet, we can accommodate all of your festive needs. Take a look at our festive online range or come and see us; with Small Business Saturday coming up this Saturday, we’d love it if you could show The Flower Lounge your support, #shoplocal and visit us in store to see the full Christmas range.
December’s just around the corner…and The Flower Lounge has your Christmas shopping sorted.
