It's that wonderful time of year again; school kids singing 'Five Gold Rings!!!' at the top of their lungs in Christmas assembly, ice skating and hot chocolate at Somerset House, last minute shopping for secret santa gifts. Here at Funky Flowers in West Drayton, our floristry elves are busy creating magical door wreaths, table centres and festive bouquets whilst whistling along to Christmas tunes. Pop in to our West Drayton flower shop and have a browse of our seasonal blooms and crafty gifts.

Festive Door Wreaths
Festive door wreaths fly out of our shop in December, our West Drayton customers love them! An easy and effective way to add a touch of Christmas joy to the home, Christmas door wreaths are a great choice.
Here at Funky Flowers our talented team of florists can design bespoke door wreaths in your chosen Christmas theme colour; pale blue and icy white, trendy dusky pink and copper, traditional red and gold. We use seasonal foliage and evergreens and add decorations such as velvet ribbon, dried fruits, pine cones or cinnamon sticks.
Blizzard Beauty Door Wreath
Looking for a stylish and elegant door wreath? Our beautiful Blizzard Beauty from new Interflora Christmas Collection is the perfect choice and you will love seeing this wreath hanging on your front door this festive period.
Our Funky Flowers teams create Blizzard Beauty door wreath using ivory roses, pink echeveria, white waxflower, blue eryngium, eucalyptus, birch and green berried ivy. For finishing touches we add luxury accessories including a large hand-tied grey plaid bow.
Top tips for caring for your door wreath
- If not displaying immediately, store your door wreath in a cool place with air ventilation and in its plastic liner.
- If you are displaying your wreath indoors, keep it away from heat sources such as radiators, log fires and heaters.
- Use a mister spray bottle to lightly mist your Wreath daily if kept inside
- No need to mist an outside Wreath, as the air will naturally moisten the wreath.
- Keep your wreath out of direct sunlight
Funky Flowers find at this time of year there are seasonal flowers that work perfectly for gifting such as red roses, lilies and chrysanthemum. Our friendly team are on hand to help offer advice on Christmas flowers to send to a loved one or simply some beautiful blooms for your home.
Christmas Cracker hand-tied
Just launched in our new Interflora Christmas Collection is Christmas Cracker hand-tied. Designed by expert florists to capture the traditional colours of Christmas with a trendy twist, Christmas Cracker is one of our favourite floral gifts to choose this December.
We use a mix of seasonal blooms to create Christmas Cracker; this includes red lilies, red roses, red carnations and red chrysanthemum. For a luxurious touch, our flower team add gold eucalyptus, scots pine and salal tips to the design. For the perfect presentation, we carefully wrap the flowers in red kraft paper and tie with branded ribbon.
At Christmas time, the gift of flowers and plants is thoughtful and symbolic. One of the most iconic festive flowers is the poinsettia – known for its unique star shaped leaves in crimson red. Poinsettias originate from the warm climate of Mexico and bloom later in the year, giving a festive splash of colour for winter days.
One of our favourite plants from the new Interflora Collection is Colours of Christmas basket. A jolly and bright floral gift of seasonal plants in traditional Christmas colours of red, white and green are beautifully presented in a luxury willow basket.
Colours of Christmas includes a red poinsettia, white rose plant, white kalanchoe and ivy, and finished with a festive red and cream gingham ribbon.
