Not feeling quite so festive this year? Not to worry. This Scandi-style floristry hack from Bloom and Wild will make your home feel instantly Christmassy. 

It isn’t going to be a business-as-usual sort of Christmas this year, but that’s no reason to stop feeling festive. With presents to buy and wrap for our nearest and dearest, our favourite festive tunes playing merrily on the radio and, of course, delicious food and drink to indulge in, there’s plenty to get excited about. 

If the coronavirus Christmas restrictions are making it harder for you to get in the spirit of things, though, then there’s a Nordic hack that can help, by making your home look and feel totally magical. 

Bloom and Wild, the letterbox flowery delivery company, is one of the most popular florists in the UK. With their ever-changing arrangements and playful use of colour and volume, we often look to them for inspiration on all things floral. 

Bloom and Wild's top tip for making your home as Christmassy as possible.

Last year, Bloom and Wild released its 2019 Christmas report, which revealed the year’s biggest and best floral themes and gave us the inside scoop on a super easy, Scandi-style way of decorating your home that we are still obsessed with. 

According to Bloom and Wild, ‘abundant foliage’ was the big trend to try, and it’s certainly got staying power. They said: “Filling the home with winter foliage is the fastest way to make it look, feel and smell like Christmas is coming. And while this trend looks Scandi-cool when done simply, when done in abundance it feels oh-so-magical.”

Essentially the look is about taking that rustic, Nordic alpine feel to a new level, and building up layers of foliage to look really hearty and indulgent – just like the season. 

Use foliage on the dinner table for seasonal feel.

The best types of foliage to use are rosemary, eucalyptus and pine. You can buy these from larger florists, flower markets or order from Bloom and Wild as part of their DIY Decorations Kit.

If you’re stuck for inspiration on how to arrange your foliage in your home, we recommend laying it across a mantle piece, wiring it atop of a stair bannister, popping lots of it in wide-rimmed vases or positing down the centre of a table as runner.
