3 Christmas decorative plants for this season.

 

Plants have always helped celebrate a natural phenomenon; you’ll see this even today in Africa, South America or New Zealand, where locals use plants to welcome winter, longer days or rain. In tradition. plants help decorate towns, “glorify” Gods and even ward off evil spirits.

Holly, ivy and mistletoe, have been associated with Christmas decoration for more than two millennia and today, their main use is for completing the overall Christmas setting.

These plants (besides the aforementioned ones), can be used to mix & match and create your own touch this festive season. Along with decorative support such as tinsel, baubles, ostrich feathers and unusual (unique) ornaments – you may be just a step away from creating a memorable experience for your guests.

Poinsettia

This plant can last throughout the Christmas season and can be replanted for next year. When choosing your poinsettia make sure you pick the one with the darkest green foliage.

Place them somewhere where it doesn’t get too hot or too cold. The ideal temperature should be 12-15 degrees celcius, because it is a tropical flower.

If you want to reflower this, just cut the flower in March and keep the stems up to 6 inches. Repot and keep outside.

Christmas Cactus (Schlumbergera)

This is a very easy plant to care for. It’s called Christmas cactus because it thrives from November to January. They die in direct sunlight but they prefer a slightly colder atmosphere. If cared properly, this plant can become a part of your family, for it can live up to 20 or 30 years!

Just like you, it needs its beauty sleep, but slightly longer (14 hours a day).

Cranberry 

Cranberry doesn’t look great as a part of the Christmas installation/setting only, but it also can add more flavour to your Christmas dinner.

You can grow cranberries and enjoy their antioxidant abilities but also create a beautiful atmosphere. In a jar, glue on the bottom some rosemary leaves and spray them on top with glitter (very gently). Let it dry, then fill the jar with water, before you add cranberries and a floating white candle. Place a few of these jars on your fireplace or Christmas table to make a good impression.

At one of London’s most prestigious locations, we brought together class, elegance and style with a variety of floral combinations or you.

The idea was simple; we wanted to give you a taste of having a grandiose wedding in this Westminster building. The venue looked spectacular, bathed in a an abundance of (primarily) white floral selections, candles and exquisite table settings. The goal was to make this showcase as realistic as possible as if a wedding were actually taking place that day.

The Great Hall – where your wedding dinner takes place – was an awe-inspiring opportunity to appreciate the grandeur one experiences as you step inside for the first time.

TBR creations were also visible in the lobby as well as staircase; elegant, pure with the occasional dramatic twist.

Are your office flowers up to the job?

Keep staff uplifted and clients impressed with corporate flowers for your office

Flowers can liven up your office space or corporate building and make a huge difference to the atmosphere for staff and clients. Increasing staff morale and giving a good impression of your business to  clients and prospects

When looking to provide an office with flower displays, it can be hard for your staff to find the time to look after and maintain the display and make sure that the flowers are always fresh and beautiful – often the flowers can die after only 4 days which doesn’t send a good message to staff and clients and of course it costs you more that it should when you have to replace to flowers more often than you need to. Your flowers should last much longer than 4 days, and we can help.

Using TBR Floral Design eliminates this problem, ensuring your flower displays look beautiful for longer. Let’s look at some ways that TBR Floral Design can help you solve this problem.

Changing office flowers weekly

We can change the flowers changed weekly on a specific day allocated. This means that you are always provided with a display that is beautiful, bespoke and has the ability to have maximum impact on your office interior, staff and clients.

Using the highest quality flowers for your office

We only use flowers of the highest quality, which means that they are more likely to stay looking fresh and alive for longer. This reduces the amount of maintenance and need for change, which saves you money in the long term.

 Our Experience in corporate flowers

We have over 10 years experience. So we know which flowers will fair better in spaces that will have fluctuating room temperatures. These fluctuating temperatures may compromise quality, and life span. This knowledge allows TBR Floral Design to convert what may be a dull space with displays that look stunning and last as good as new for as long as possible.
