City Chic Christmas 2500 1531 Zita Elze Flowers

It’s traditional greens and reds outside the Kew flower shop this year, with a twist of Zita-style city chic. A pared down display showcases a neat row of planters with Christmas trees minimally adorned with a mix of fabulous faux and crunchy fresh red apples.

A fairy tale mantelpiece beckons, illuminated by a simple wooden star, with evocative florals and feather light dried foliage garlands tumbling airily down.
