Here at McQueens festive preparations have been in hot pursuit for quite some time. We have the honour of cladding some of London’s most beautiful hotels and restaurants with yuletide decor, while over in McQueens Flower School we have been welcoming students onto the Christmas Classes for several weeks. In spite of the long run-up, we still haven’t lost our love for the magical season – if anything we’re feeling more cheery than ever. It might be to do with our new fabulously festive designs which we’ve launched this week…

Drum roll please…new for 2018 – Nordic Winter. Inspired by a journey through a snowy Scandi landscape, the bouquet comprises of some of our favourites including succulents, berry-red astilbe and exquisite Vanda Orchids.
This fantastical bouquet captures the magic of the season. It wouldn’t look out of place in a fairytale thanks to the delightful combination of pale lilac roses, peachy pink hypericum berries, a sprinkling of silver pine cones and beautifully ornate clematis.
Noel is unashamedly, all-out Christmas in bouquet form. Roses, tulips and anemones in the perfect shade of red are punctuated by fresh seasonal foliage and pine cones.
As the name would suggest this design transports you to a snowy winter wonderland. Made up of large white roses, ranunculus and astrantia it’s the chicest of gifts.
The Fen Wreath
The icing on the Christmas cake is our new wreath ‘The Fen’. Inspired by winter strolls through the Norfolk countryside a myriad of natural, rustic materials combine to creating a stunning adornment for your front door.
