Christmas is Coming…See our Festive Floral Range
06 December 2019
Christmas has arrived at The Flower Lounge and we are celebrating in style. Our award-winning shop has been transformed with a rich and decadent colour palette of gold, masala and green to create a Christmas display worthy of the ancient Roman Gods!
And, there’s been no expense spared on our much-anticipated window display! Drawing on the creative forces of the entire Flower Lounge team, we’ve created an opulent, regal display using giant masala baubles, intertwined with luscious, festive fir; a luxurious gold wreath to add a decadent splash of colour and texture; light up baubles to add glitz and shine, while burgundy peacocks perch majestically amongst the display.
The same tones are reflected throughout the shop with gorgeous decorations in silver, gold and wine colours, continuing our sophisticated and grown-up festive theme.
As usual, the shop is a feast of festive gifts for flower lovers.
Our fresh and dried door wreaths have been flying out of the shop already, adorning front doors across Didsbury and beyond, and making homes the envy of their neighbours. This year, for the creative amongst us, I’ve made a wreath making kit, which you can purchase in store or online, to create your own, bespoke Christmas door wreath. The kit contains everything you need; from fresh foliage, to wire, to decorations, to ribbon, to fail safe instructions created by our award-winning team. It’s a wonderfully festive and relaxing way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
Our online Christmas shop also features a range of festive bouquets, table centres, plants and wreaths that will add the ‘wow’ factor to your home, or make gorgeous gifts for friends and family.
Creating the festive bouquets always gets me in the Christmas spirit. I particularly love our Ultimate White Christmas bouquet, with giant Avalanche roses, snowy white veronica, eucalyptus and fir; it really does epitomise a winter wonderland.
If you’re looking for something a bit different, then new for this year, are my Frosty Hurricane Vase Table Centres. Using neutral tones of silver, white and green they will complement any Christmas decoration colour palette. They can be used in a variety of positions around the home, from the star of the show on the Christmas day table, to a welcoming arrangement as guests enter your home. I also love that they are long-lasting and, even if purchased now, will still be looking great on Christmas day.
Our ceramic tealight holders in shape of bloom heads are also incredibly effective and make an excellent stocking filler or thoughtful teacher gift this Christmas.
If you’re in the market for some unique decorations then we are stocking a range of lovely, vintage style baubles. These come in large, traditional shapes but are given a modern twist with a variety of textures. We also have some contemporary, geometric design baubles that look super stylish next to their vintage counterparts.
A personal favourite of mine is the Manchester Bee Bauble, a homage to the great city we live in, which comes in gold, silver and copper.
Gold ornamental pieces, including simple conical Christmas trees, reindeer tealight holders and hanging star decorations will add wonderment to any home. As will our white, feather tree with its luxurious, feathery texture adding depth and warmth to twinkling decorations.
We also simply couldn’t resist stocking this year’s ‘must-have’ Christmas kitsch – check out our fun and cute Gonks in a variety of colours. They look delightful peeking out of vases or as a sweet addition to festive bouquets.
As you know, we are a huge advocate of shopping locally and supporting local businesses and high streets to thrive. So, we are proud to be stocking some beautiful products from small, independent businesses too.
We have 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!
A wide range of beautiful and unique calligraphy Christmas cards designed by Lucky Nibs. And, if you’re looking for bang on trend hanging plant pot holders and macramé pendant decorations then check out our products from Patch A Mama.
Of course, Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a gift for your beloved pooch! Charlie, my black lab, would never forgive me! So, we have dog walker gift sets, mugs and dog shaped baubles from Sweet William.
I hope this has inspired your Christmas shopping! We’d love for you to pop in for more design ideas or visit us online and get your orders in before we sell out!
