How to decorate your Christmas tree with fresh flowers and plants.


Fresh flowers and plants can be used to decorate your Christmas tree.

Traditional Christmas tree decorations include lights and baubles, but how can you decorate your tree with fresh plants and flowers?

Fresh plants and flowers on a Christmas tree can add a natural touch to your holiday centerpiece.

It was demonstrated by a professional florist.

Anna Eklöv is the owner of LV Flowers, an online florist.

Letterbox flowers and bespoke hand tied bouquets, as well as wedding and event flowers, are all offered by LV, which is inspired by chic Scandinavian design.

She explained that flower-decorating a tree is not as simple as it appears.

It’s critical to consider what you’re going to use carefully.

“Although most fresh flowers will only last a day or two out of water,” Anna told this website, “we have had a client ask for this in the past.”

There is, however, a way to decorate a tree with natural plants.

The use of berries and foliage was suggested by Anna.

“We ended up draping “love lies bleeding” draping down the tree with berries (hypericum berries or ilex flower), different types of foliage, dried orange slices, pine cones, and “love lies bleeding” draping down the tree,” she said.

Hypericum berries come in a variety of colors, ranging from green to white, pink to red.

The berries of the Ilex flower are small, round, and bright red.

Amaranthus caudatus is another name for “love lies bleeding.”

It’s a red flowering annual with red tendrils.

“Most of the flowers and decorations were wired in by hand,” Anna continued, “and others were glued on the tree like a Christmas wreath.”

Pine cones, for example, are another festive but natural Christmas tree decoration.

Dried orange peel and cinnamon sticks are both fragrant additions.

Anna also talked about where to get the best real Christmas tree.

She claims that garden centers and even local pop-up sales are not the best places to buy trees.

“The first thing to consider is where you will purchase your tree,” Anna said.

“Unfortunately, Christmas trees sold in garden centers or on your local town square are sometimes already too old.

“The best place to get a Christmas tree is from a Christmas tree farm, where you can cut your own and know it’s as fresh as possible.”

Another option is to hire a tree rental service to provide you with a live tree.
