Glitz, glamour and sparkle remain very much in vogue this yuletide. However, hot on their heels are visible signs of the Sustainable Floristry Movement, which has been growing in leaps and bounds over the last twelve months.
Read on to discover more about the major themes for Christmas 2019, as compiled by New Covent Garden Market.
Back to nature
Natural circular bases made of clematis, willow and other types of soft vine form the basis for many a door decoration this month. Sometimes adorned with dried flowers and foliage, and occasionally combined with fresh blooms, these nature-inspired style designs are proving to be a big hit with florists and their clients.
Staying with foliage including blue spruce, ivy, mistletoe and eucalyptus, we're seeing it steal the show with installations, traditional Christmas designs and even a mannequin.
Dried, whole and sliced, apples and oranges, are selling like hot cakes at New Covent Garden Flower Market. And they've been incorporated beautifully into these arrangements.
Paint the town red
London town is well and truly being painted red with incredibly tall Christmas trees adorned with red bows, delightfully textured door wreaths with shiny red baubles and urns brimming with assorted festive scarlet flowers and berries.
A whiter shade of pale
White Christmas colour schemes are popular again with ethereal table decorations, breath-taking gallery installations and exquisite bridal bouquets.
Out of the blue
This year, blue really shines out as a colour that many florists have chosen for yuletide designs, from gorgeous wreaths to fabulous flower walls.
