Transforming your home into a winter wonderland is always a highlight in the Christmas calendar, and 2020 is the year to try something new when bringing festive cheer into the home. While putting up the Christmas tree is a symbol for the start of the festive season, there’s nothing like a fresh bouquet of flowers to put a smile on someone’s face. That's why the experts at Serenata Flowers and Christmas Tree World have teamed up to create this gorgeous festive floral tree.

How to Create a Floral Christmas Tree

1. Choosing your Tree

The first step in creating your floral display is to choose the type of tree you want to decorate. David Sumner, Online Sales Manager at Christmas Tree World, suggests going for a smaller tabletop tree as it is more practical and requires less time and flowers to decorate. However, if you want a floral tree that doubles as a showstopping centerpiece, take inspiration from Christmas Tree World’s mini Christmas tree range, like the Potted Mountain Pine Tree.

2. Find your Flowers

Before choosing the star flowers for your festive show, consider the aesthetic you want to achieve. If you have a taste for tradition, opt for flowers in classic Christmas shades such as deep red roses or carnations. Serenata Flowers' Marketing Manager, Lucia Polla, recommends the stunning Blooming Ruby bouquet. For a delicate and elegant floral tree, white blooms like camellia are perfect. To ensure a wintery appearance that lasts, choose flowers that are in season, such as pansies, violas, camellias, and primroses.

3. Prepare your Petals

After your beautiful bouquets for the floral tree have been delivered, prepare the flowers for decoration. According to Lucia, let the flowers bloom fully before using them. Using flower food and regularly spraying the flowers will help them reach their full potential. Once the petals have opened, trim the stems to around 2 inches, making it easier to slot the flowers into place on the tree.

4. Ready, Set… Decorate!

Decorating your floral tree is the most exciting part of getting your home Christmas-ready. Christmas Tree World's experts suggest approaching the process as you would with a classic Christmas tree. The key is to distribute the decorations evenly to create a sense of balance and aesthetics. Just like placing large and small baubles symmetrically, do the same with your flowers.

And there you have it! Four simple steps to create a truly unique and expert-approved floral tree that will elevate any room or festive display this year.
