Fresh flowers as Christmas tree decorations?

Move over tinsel and bulbs and make way for a stunning Christmas Floral Tree from snowy Canada which would please Santa.

Canadian inventor James Wong used 500 blooms for a show-stopping tree and and a hundred of his recyclable flower arranging ‘mechanics’ - the FloraGUPPY - to keep them in place.

“I wanted something that was especially vibrant, cheery, and full of life this year to brighten spirits in the midst of COVID, and what better way to do that than with flowers,” says Wong. ”Like with many people, Christmas has always been a special time for me, and I thought why not a special floral Christmas tree this year.”

Wong used one hundred of his ‘GUPPY’ inventions to secure the flowers and water tubes to keep them fresh.

FloraGUPPY is an eco-friendly alternative to using floral foam. It’s versatile, comes as two interlocking halves, can be molded in warm water, has 58 holes and can be used for fresh cut, silk, papercraft, and specialty plants like orchids. Or in this case, to create a fresh flower Christmas tree.
