Spread the love

By Jill Brooke

The Fleurs de Villes girls have returned to Vancouver for the third time with their Fleurs de Villes NOËL show until December 19th. 

Presented by the National Bank of Canada, and hosted by the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association and Robson Street Business Association, this year’s holiday inspirations feature over 40 festive floral art displays, designed by Vancouver’s top local florists. 

The florists include Arbutus Florist, Botany & Bloom, Dushan Flowers, Flower Factory, Granville Island Florist, Southland Floral, Arizel Studio, Écorce Flowers, Faux Floral, Gardenia Flowers, Get a Bouquet, Gilligan Girls Flowers on Main, J Events, Lotus Flower Boutique, Niche Boutique Florals, Nogori Flowers, Plush Floral Studio, Port Moody Flowers, ROA Floral and Event Designs, Rogue Florist, Shadow Jiang, Simply Perfect Flowers, Stems at Stong’s Market, Tila Flower Boutique, Vivió Flower Gallery and Hilary Miles, all talents to know. 

So here are some highlights to swoon over and be inspired by for your own holiday decor. 

1) Don’t you love how the mighty confident rose just demands attention when mixed into this dazzling holiday-inspired sculpture by @nicheboutiqueflorals .

2). Use white as a neutral shade and it becomes more modern and less traditional. Look at what @jevents.planning.design did with this heart. Love how they used white chrysanthemums, roses, and baby’s breath and then brought in bright blue with the thistles and asparagus ferns. 

The Fleursdevilles Fleuristes also did something novel as well.

You don’t need only pine green trees, especially in warmer climates. By using white trees and adorning them with three different colored rose-themed wreaths, it became a piece of art. And don’t you love billy balls – also known as Craspedia. I put them everywhere and they last so long. Notice how the wreaths are dyed in different colors to match. 

3) Planters become something so much yummier when they are turned into peppermint floral lollipops. Designed by  @get_a_bouquet, they used inexpensive carnations – another favorite and reliable flower for any design – and attached a stick to be inserted in a planter. So happy and fun. You could also use faux flowers to great effect if you can’t order directly from them. 

4) Couldn’t help but love bringing an unexpected prop into the design. Is London calling!  @arizelstudio draped this telephone box with bright colors and then you can encourage people to call loved ones. Who would you want to call? I think this studio since it’s so creative. 

5) Since we frame pictures, why not use a wood frame or one you have at home and cover it in flowers as @portmoodyflowers did as an entrance piece. 

Last but not least, also loved Rudolph en fleurs. It’s all about getting into the holiday spirit and embracing love, creativity and yes, a bit of whimsy too. 

As “Peanuts” writer Charles M. Schulz wisely said, “Christmas is doing a little something extra for someone.”
