In TOAST’s recent Inspire Me on creating fabulous festive florals at home we spoke to some of the UK’s top florists and leading floral designers about which flowers to fill our homes with this Christmas, and how to keep them look fresh and fabulous throughout the festive period. Here, Tuck Shop Flowers shares some further top tips – specifically on how to transform your Christmas table using beautiful, fresh flowers and a few clever ideas…


Based in Birmingham and working throughout the West Midlands, Worcestershire and Warwickshire, Tuck Shop Flowers is run by expert florist Carole who specialises in growing and arranging flowers ‘with perfume and personality’. Here she shares some wonderful ideas for transforming your Christmas table this year, using fabulous, fresh, festive florals.

Make Your Wreaths Unique

Use wreaths with hurricane lanterns and pillar candles inset, or suspend them from ceiling on ribbons, chandelier style!

Suspend A Branch Over The Table

Suspend a charismatic branch over the table and attach clear test tubes suspended on fishing line. Pop a small bloom into each tube, and add hanging tea light holders, baubles and any other festive frou-frous you fancy.

Use Floating Flowerheads

Add floating flowerheads (e.g. spidery chrysanths, hellebores - aka Christmas roses) with candles - simple low arrangements. Use whatever is still flowering in the garden!

Decorate Your Candelabras

Add a ring of flowers to candelabras using an oasis base set into their arms – this lifts flowers out of the way of conversation and has a small footprint so more stuff can go on the table.

Place Small Flowers In Shot Glasses

Flowers are wonderful for individual place settings – use small bud vases or mismatched small sherry and shot glasses. This adds a personal touch and you really don’t need lots.

Add A Lovely Sparkle To Your Table

Metallic votives and vintage glass can bring a lovely sparkle to the table and can be easily moved out of the way.

Use Sprigs For A Gorgerous Scent

Or sprigs of herbs tucked into folded napkins with a name tag can be a lovely touch and add gorgeous scent to proceedings!
