With one sleep until December, we can officially start filling our homes with festive spirit. In addition to the obligatory tree, Christmas tunes and token sprig of mistletoe above the door, adding some fresh blooms and foliage will add an extra layer of magic to your home during the yuletide season. From bouquets that will elevate your entertaining set-ups to stylish plants for a modern festive feel, M&S, as always, has a stellar range to check out. Scroll on for some of our favourites and how to style them in your home…

Festive Plants For The Home

As much as we love a traditional poinsettia at Christmastime, if you’re keen to keep your aesthetic more contemporary, consider a plant instead. M&S has a great selection year-round but at Christmas have added extra magic in the way of a stunning leafy Scindapsus with twinkling fairy lights – a great alternative if you don’t want to commit to a full tree this year. Plus, you can keep it up well into the new year.

There are also plenty of plants that err more on the classic side of things. The trio of mini poinsettias (or Christmas roses as they are sometimes called) will look sweet nestled between bookshelves or used as a centrepiece on the dining table. While the Fresh Decorated Christmas Tree comes in an understated star print brown bag and has minimalist white decorations and lights to dress it with – perfect for bringing some festive joy to a corner of the room.

Beautiful Christmas Bouquets For The Home

We don’t need an excuse to buy ourselves flowers at any time of the year but it is an indulgence, so make Christmas the time to treat yourself. M&S have a plethora of festive bouquets to suit every taste, whether you love velvety red blooms, berries and lush spruce or go for a more winter wonderland whites theme.

For something understated and cool, the White Amaryllis Flowers Bouquet will look stunning a top a console table in the hallway and will set the mood for any visitors you have coming this Christmas. While the Special Christmas Flowers Bouquet – with its candy-hued peach and pretty pink avalanche roses that sit nestled with traditional red berries and sprawling eucalyptus – is a nice alternative to the usual festive colour palette.

We also love the Ready To Arrange White Table decoration that will transform your Christmas table throughout the festive period and have the whole room smelling divine.

Whether you love velvety red blooms, berries and lush spruce or go fo winter wonderland whites, M&S has a festive bouquet to bring the magic this year whatever your taste.

Outdoor Decorations To Make A Festive First Impression

Bring the festive magic before guests have even stepped inside with M&S’s sweet outdoor festive plant selection. There’s a luxurious holly planter with vibrant red cyclamen and trailing ivy that will make your stoop look plucked from a Christmas movie; or the charming White Reindeer Planter, made from weather durable twine and filled with a pretty cyclamen plant.

And for those with a more modest outdoor space – even just a slither of London balcony – M&S’s cute festive watering can will add some festive cheer outside your window. Just add a twinkling of fairy lights for a yuletide transformation.
