You’ve been sharing your festive flower arrangements with us – here are some of our fave customer pics in a bumper Christmas edition gallery…
We reckon your arrangements are works of art, so they deserve their own gallery (like these ones). Please do share your pics with us by email or social media – see the bottom of the post for where – and perhaps you’ll feature in the next one!
First off, some splendid efforts from people who like to get their Christmas decs up nice and early for maximum festive wallowing. Here are some fine displays of the waxflower, alstroemeria, lodge pine and lisianthus from the week of 5 December.
This is a quite exquisite in situ whites-and-lights arrangement by Zoe (aka @canalsidecalm on Instagram)…
…and we love this trad red and green and gold and white festive look from Cally (@tallgirl81 on Instagram):
Iona Davis, also on Instagram, has hidden a little monster in her waxflowers:
While Emma Dew shared this arrangement on Facebook, and we we just think it has been beautifully, elegantly done:
Enter the Amaryllis…
Things really got Christmassy with the amaryllis box on the week beginning 12 December – and with any luck yours are still going strong on Christmas Day and beyond.
We were sent some fine pics from Freddie’s Flower People that prove amaryllis look great even before they’ve opened up. Like this from Niki Dobs on Instagram:
…and this from Issey Miyake on Facebook:
AlisonLovesVintage on Instagram takes a rather good photo, doesn’t she?…
And we absolutely love the ingenious use of individual Amaryllis Holders for a stunning Christmas centrepiece from Lou Emma Dixon Mele (via Facebook):
Some of you preferred your amaryllis neat, and some of you artfully combined them with the previous week’s arrangement, such as Kathey Yon Smoley (via Facebook)…
…or with the red ilex berries, eucaplyptus and gold bog myrtle we sent you in the week before Christmas. Here’s Kate on Twitter…
This beauty is from Alison Bell on Facebook:
And here’s a three-box mega-combo from Lesley McBride on Twitter!
But we also just love seeing all the interesting little creative, personal. touches you use to display your flowers. This is from Michelle Horton (via Facebook):

How about this extremely flowerful fireplace from Sharon Walker on Instagram?
We just had to share this throwback to the oriental ‘Pico’ lilies waaay back at the end of November. It’s admittedly not a Christmas picture as such, but that is an exceedingly enviable flower table owned by Theresa Robinson (via Facebook). Let’s all resolve to get ourselves a flower table in the New Year.
