cover story
Pancras International by one of our
members.
The installation will be made as far as
possible to meet your requirements; this
might be overnight or over a weekend,
depending on the size of the displays.
Just plants
Maybe you just want some simple
decorations for your reception desk?
There are plenty of plants which are
associated with Christmas or make a
good show in traditional colours.
One of the most obvious plants which is
certainly synonymous with Christmas is
the Poinsettia, or the Christmas Star.
This beauty originates from Mexico
originally; its 'flowers' are actually
coloured bracts! Of course, it's available
in the obligatory red but also in white and
pinks too. It is very sensitive to the cold
but we can advise the best place for the
best show.
Other plants that come to mind for a
Christmassy feel include the heartshaped Anthurium. Its wax-like flowers
come in shades of red, a mix of red and
green, and white all of which are perfect
for traditional and contemporary
Christmas displays.
Simple, delicate-looking Cyclamen are
also perfect to evoke that Christmas
feeling especially en-masse.
Of course any plant can enjoy a
Christmas makeover with the addition
of baubles or glittery accessories.
Terrariums are also popular now and
many of our members offer these either
planted or with snow scenes.
One thing's for sure, efig members can
certainly take the headache out of
Christmas decorating. Check out those
in your area at our website.
