Flower Christmas trees! Say what? Yes! Tired of tinsel? Bored of baubles? Want a fresh idea for decorating your tree this year?  Well, look no further than flowers – because the floral Christmas tree trend is, well, trending!

Here are some fun, festive and inspiring examples.

The first one, by One Sweet Day in May, uses the idea of a flat lay of fresh flowers on a wall.  Not only does this look effective, but laying all the elements out like this does keep the costs down as opposed to creating a 3D floral tree.  This would be such a cute display for a Christmas party or event but it is pretty special, to be enjoyed for only a day or two.

Then to the high end, the Christmas tree of my dreams.  Entirely made of pretty pink, purple and cream fresh roses.  Who could envision and create such a masterpiece?  Dior of course!

Now, I quite love this fun and festive example.  It really bright and the colours say happy holidays to me.  Great for the summer party house.  This tree was made using all artificial flowers but you could use fresh flowers for a more authentic, albeit less permanent, effect.

This Christmas tree design is so feminine and pretty.  It uses large paper flowers and artificial blooms together with festive decorations in white, pale pink and gold, but I would scatter a few fresh blooms instead.  I’d recommend adding a little vile of water to the stems to keep them hydrated.

Again, on the large inspiring scale.  Check out these amazing Christmas trees made from red poinsettia plants.  They are so wonderfully striking aren’t they?  They really say Christmas!

A great inexpensive DYI option for adding flowers to your Christmas tree is this example with gypsophila scattered throughout.  You wouldn’t really even need to add water viles to the gypsophila as it looks great dried out.  So you could scatter stems through out the tree and they will last as long as the decorations.

I just love this Christmas tree created with all green foliages including natives.  Red pin-cushions and lime green chrysanthemums are scattered through out to look like traditional baubles.   This tree not only looks amazing but with the eucalyptus foliage it would smell divine too!

This tree has used all fresh orchid plants to amazing effect.  A very clever way to use fresh orchids and make sure that they last also.  The mix of colours and orchid varieties is simple gorgeous.

I hope this has given you some fresh ideas for decorating with flowers at Christmas time.  The traditional  tree will never be the same!  Which flower tree was your favourite?
