The flower delivery service has created a collection of handmade Victorian-style wreaths and garlands around the traditional evergreen base. The Red Berry wreath smells as good as it looks, pairing wood-scented pine with seasonal sprigs of viburnum, skimmia and rosehips – all tied up with a huge velvet ribbon (from £60). For a further splash of colour indoors, the red carnation indoor wreath is just the ticket (£140). flowerbx.com.
Grace & Thorn
The Hackney florist declares its dried flower and foliage wreath “so beautiful you won’t want to take it down” (£95). And, given its dried nature, you don’t have to. Its more traditional offering is also a delight (from £95) – and each is made to order with individual flair. graceandthorn.com.
Scarlet & Violet
Each of the nine designs from this west London shop are densely packed and utterly delicious. Derwent combines bright red ilex berries with crab apples (from £100); Buttermer has a blue colour scheme, featuring blue hydrangeas, pussy willow, eucalyptus and pinecones (from £85); and Ennerdale manages to look both somewhat summery and utterly seasonal, with its colourful mix of strawflowers, brunia and rosehips (from £100). scarletandviolet.com.
The self-taught London- and Sussex-based florist focuses on seasonality and sustainability in all her installations. For wreaths, this means a focus on the faux variety – although you’d have to look closely at the Decorated Wild Faux Spruce design to distinguish it from its real counterparts (£165). There’s even a mammoth 1m-wide version (£680), as well as various garlands (from £90) to make a festive statement inside and out. philippacraddock.com.
The Clerkenwell florist, known for its extravagant event arrangements, updates the traditional wreath with a smattering of succulents within the pine base – alongside limes, eucalyptus pods and Spanish moss (from £80). wildabout.co.uk.

The London-based artist has created poetic metalwork for the V&A and Candy & Candy properties, and this winter she’s turned the festive form of the wreath into a sculptural artwork. Her limited-edition circle of silver-plated metal flowers is, she says, “a generational celebration piece” (£6,700). yasemenhussein.com.
