It’s pinecones, Christmas trees, and a winter galore with SJÖ Flora’s Christmas flowers, bringing together all of everyone’s favourite festive things. If you need help deciding on what to get, get inspired with our décor ideas below, sorted conveniently by colour theme;


The classic: Red, green, and white

The Classic: Red, Green, And White

 Most people will automatically think of Christmas when they see red, green, and white. The most traditional colours that are synonymous with the occasion; this combination stands for something meaningful. According to the Christian belief regarding Christmas, red symbolises love and redemption, green symbolises a new life, and white represents purity and triumph over evil.

To decorate your home in this classic palette, you can’t leave out our Classic Preserved Christmas Wreath, which has been given a modern twist with Santa, reindeer, and candy cane ornaments. As a décor tip, hang this at your entrance for a cheerful Christmas welcome to your guests. For smaller, tabletop décor, the Preserved Xmas Tree in its natural green colour will lend a festive touch to any dining area.

White Christmas: White and greyish blues

White Christmas: White And Greyish Blues

Thanks to the influence of fellow individuals in the Northern hemisphere, Christmas has long been associated with the wintry landscape of that season. White and greyish blues are the go-to colours for depicting winter – and it remains a popular colour scheme for Christmas trees and festive décor in December.

While Singapore may not have winter, you can drop the temperature down a few notches with this cool colour combination. Start off at the entryway with the White Preserved Christmas Wreath, sporting a rustic, minimalistic look. At the coffee table, keep things on-brand with a snow-themed vase arrangement like our Let It Snow arrangement.


Fairy floss: Candy-toned pastels

Fairy Floss: Candy-toned Pastels

Fortunately for those who can’t seem to get enough of soft, dreamy pastels, trendy candy-coloured tones like baby blush pink, dusty sky blue, and sweet lilac purple have made their way into Christmas décor. If all you wish for this Christmas is a break from the highly saturated tones of red and green, retreat into a space that’s easier on the eyes. Frequently associated with a sense of calm, pastel colours are a natural choice for a cosy and intimate gathering at home. 

Many of our preserved flower jars are available in pastel options. And as part of the Christmas collection this year at SJÖ Flora, we have the Preserved Xmas Tree in four soothing pastel colourways in addition to the classic green. Place these miniature trees anywhere in the home for a pop of colour, and you will be ready to welcome your guests into your fairy-floss-themed abode!
