“Nature has always been at the heart of my work and this year the connection seems more vital than ever. My Christmas 2020 palette celebrates the symphony of greens, soft golds and vibrant reds in our local winter landscape.”
Our unusually clement weather has left wisps of sunshine coloured leaves still dancing on the statuesque silhouettes of December’s trees. Elsewhere shiny bright berries offer crushed orange and crimson cheer, and their delicious temptation to the birds.
In the woods in Richmond Park, down the Thames towpath and on Kew village’s streets, textural evergreens in a multitude of verdant shades prepare to carry us through to a new year filled with hope. “From the mysterious shadows of a misty morning walks, through the twinkling sparkle of fresh rain drops on the London pavements, to the crispest of clear blue sky days and those big sunset skies, all these elements have inspired my latest Christmas displays.”
Our shop is as open as possible, according to London’s C-19 regulations, either physically or virtually, always safely – we welcome each valued customer into the magical world of Zita Elze, refreshed daily with new natural treasures. Choose from muted or vivid-coloured festive wreaths, winter floral arrangements laden with foliage, flowers and candles, or bursting with velvety mossiness and nascent spring bulbs in the sharp colours of an early spring revival.
Whether you visit, email or call us we always have a choice of dried and fresh flowers and plants, for every occasion. We also stock vintage and new decorations, gorgeous seasonal accessories, scented candles and creams and original hand picked presents that you will find nowhere else. Book a special festive class or plan ahead to 2021 with floristry workshops, courses or a gift token for a future d at ZE Flower Academy.
