Long gone are the days when you simply pulled out the same tired Christmas decorations and hung them year after year it seems.

To join the hip and trendy these are what to expect gracing your glossy magazines in the next few months!

1.  Metals!  Rusted, muted tones - not shiny gold or silver, but more pewter, copper, tin and iron.  From baubles to candlesticks....

2. Taper candles.  Elegant and understated these are perfect in an elegant table arrangement.  

3. Natural wreaths.  With the increased awareness of sustainability, wreaths no longer glitter and sparkle, but have a woodland feel using branches, dried materials and no flowers at all.

4. Dried flowers and materials.  Yes, there is a revival in dried flowers.  Perfect for Christmas as they will see you right through the festive season.  From seed heads to dried Hydrangeas.  Pop in some copper branches for the hint of something magical!

Of course, these are for those that not only follow trends, but stick to them like glue!  I say, be your own person and buck the trends - there is nothing wrong with shiny red baubles (or paper chains come to that.....)

At The Cambridge Flower School we cater for everyone's taste! 

Take a look at our Christmas Workshops and find the one right for you.
