A blooming Christmas with Belle De Jour.
This year we want to make sure you make the most out of the holiday season with our top picks at Belle De Jour…
A wreath on the door at Christmas is a classic piece of décor every home should display and no the imitation wreaths will not cut it, go the natural way for the best result. The wreath symbolises many things such as eternity and everlasting life due to its circular shape and evergreen colour. Of course, we are selling our high-quality hand designed and crafted wreaths in the shop this year which can be made to your bespoke desires, but if you have a little time on your hands why not design and make your own natural wreath? We are offering wreath workshops at The Clifton Observatory on the first and second Saturday of December. Our team of experts will provide only the best materials and teach you the art of making a wreath that you can take home and hang on your door with a smile or maybe gift to a loved one. Come along on your own or with friends anyone is welcome.
We have just a couple of spaces left for each workshop, get in touch to book now.
In the lead up to this wonderful time of year it sprang to our minds how difficult it can be for business owners to treat their staff to a gift in reward for their hard work. With every staff member being so different and liking different things we thought what a great gift a beautiful hand-crafted Christmas wreath would be. The majority of people decorate their homes over the festive period and who wouldn’t love the gift of an extra touch of the classic trimmings to ‘keep up with the Jone’s!?’ As an independent business we know how expensive it can be to buy these gifts each year, so our gift to you is a discounted rate of a choice of small, medium, or large wreaths when purchased in bulk.

What is Christmas without a Christmas tree? Our deluxe Nordman Fir trees are back again this year after the fantastic feedback of last year’s bunch. This choice of tree is perfect for bringing that scent of Christmas into your home and needle retention. We also have a range of the beautiful Fraser trees, a favourite of Belle De Jours. Choose from a variety of sizes to perfectly fit your home. We know not all cars can fit a 6ft Christmas tree in the boot so we do offer a delivery service within the Bristol area.
The Christmas dinner table, this is a big one to get right, right? Especially if you have invited friends and family for dinner that you wish to impress! We can design and create for you or from your own imagination create beautiful floral table décor and centre pieces using our winter blooms such as gorgeous English scented frosted roses. Or maybe something a little more organic with an all foliage natural display. Our ‘planterior’ service means we can come and view the space (could just show pictures) and design a bespoke display of décor for your home be it large or small.
If you simply want to give the gift of flowers this Christmas our hand tied bouquets will be featuring seasonal blooms such as Ilex and Amaryllis throughout December. We can create to suit your budget and style or let us put our expertise to use. If you are shopping for yourself pick some single stems to naturally throw together at home. If you know Belle De Jour you know where we have fresh cut flowers we have pretty potted plants. Browse our weird and wonderful choice of handmade pottery planted by us with winter plants for the coming season. Remember we always offer our unique vases to you for hire if you have a special occasion or simply fancy a change of vase around the home.
As part of the ‘gift and lifestyle’ section of Belle De Jour we have some festive treats for you such as our bark reindeer and high quality scented candles in the boutique. Don’t forget to treat yourself or that special someone to our botanical Seedlip gin for a guilt free tipple this Christmas.
Most of all we love to be surrounded by loved ones at this special time of year, so please pop by to share a holiday greeting. We look forward to seeing you.
