Here are 4 ideas on how to add some fresh flowers to your Christmas table

Fresh flowers are always a good idea - even on your Christmas table

Sponsored: With Christmas on our doorstep, it’s time to think about how the big day, and the big meal, will look.

Your flat is probably already decked out in all its festive glory, but how about the table?

If you’ve got all the family, or all your friends, assembling around your table, you’ll want to get that into tip-top shape; not just to impress them, but also to bring it all in line.

Fresh flowers are always the way to go, but we appreciate it might be hard to pick something festive, not to mention time is of the essence once December kicks off, and florists are always busy.

So we’ve teamed up with Bloom & Wild, the flower delivery company, to present four ideas on how to make your table stand out this Christmas.

And the best thing? Carefully wrapped so nothing gets squished, their flowers fit through the letterbox, leaving you with extra time to get all set up for Christmas.

1 Wreath’s the word

Simple, but effective: wreaths are always a good idea.

Probably one of the most popular Christmas accessories, wreaths are everywhere during the festive season.

As proven so often in Mainland Europe, where the tradition of advent wreaths is well and truly alive, taking them from the door to the table can easily spread some extra cheer.

Whether you go down the simple route and leave Bloom & Wild’s Fin as-is, or add some candles and turn it into a classic advent wreath, it’s a simple but elegant way to set your table.

As a bonus, you won’t need to

2 Keep it simple, but elegant

You can't go wrong with red roses.

Let’s be honest, you can’t go wrong with sticking to your color scheme, and everyone loves a good bouquet.

Bloom & Wild’s the Madison comes in a simple cream and red color scheme, and the Gemma is a glorious, all-red combination of roses and rhodos roses, with hypericum berries, herbaceous rosemary and evergreen leucadendron for a contemporary twist.

For an even bolder choice, the Neve brings blood and dark red together, as the stand-out piece of the party.

And for a big table, or if you’re seriously pressed for space, the Posy Party is just the right size: five small bouquets, in festive colors, to scatter around.

3 Get a tiny tree

A tiny tree? It doesn't get more Christmas-y than this.

The only thing better than a Christmas tree, in our opinion, is to have two Christmas trees.

If, like us, you’re a Londoner or just reside in a small flat, Bloom & Wild’s tiny trees are the perfect size to fit in any room.

But you know what that also means?

They’re perfect for the table, especially if you don’t need to pass things across all too often.

Not to mention there’s nothing quite as eponymous with Christmas cheer as a small tree.

For the beauty addict in your life, the Birchtree combines the best things in life.

Whether you choose the George, the Drew or the Jack, they all come with a collapsible pot, so no fiddling around trying to find a stand, and a set of decorations, from fairy lights to jingle bells.

Which means, if you’re so inclined, you and your guests can decorate the tiny table tree together, for some festive, pre-dinner entertainment.

And for the beauty-crazy people in your family (or yourself – it’s the time of treats after all) the Birchtree comes with five luxury beauty treats, to take home afterwards.

4 Think outside the box

Take a step away from the classic Christmas red with Bloom & Wild's the Harper.

Even if your flat is decked in holly, candy canes and co, this doesn’t mean you can’t go wild on your table.

Why not go for a cheerful pink, like with the Alexa?

Or, if you’re more for the muted tones, a pastel pink-and-white number always looks classy and elegant.

Like the Harper, which is sure to level up your festive and leave friends and family a little green with envy.

For a more wintery atmosphere, the Scandi-inspired the Sadie – in soft pinks, creams and whites – or the colorful blush-tones of the Leila bring some Nordic charm to the table.

Seeing as it’s Christmas, we’re also giving one lucky reader the chance to win a full year’s worth of flowers.

The competition runs until 6 January and, sadly, is only open to UK residents, who must be aged 18 or over to take part.
