Christmas is fast approaching. It is a time of the year where you can attribute many familiar warm feelings. The smell of fires is warming a hearth—the bubbling of mulled wine and cider on a stovetop. The snore of the more elderly family members, too stuffed with turkey, itself stuffed to the brim.
The festive season has always been a time of distinct, tangible feelings. Writers also have struggled to elaborate on their connection to Christmas. Some of the most famous poems in the English language connect us to winter and its magic. Poets always share a personal piece of their soul in these writings. It is that personal touch that makes Christmas magical.
The never-ending quest for a personal Christmas present is once again upon us. So why not gift your loved ones one of the lovely floral arrangements? Then, pair the flowers with classic Christmas poems for a Christmassy feeling. Bring a bit of written beauty back into your home this year.
Memories of Dark Winter Nights
Frost describes an ice-covered lake on the "Darkest evening of the year". This moody and mysterious Christmas Decoration matches Frost's vibe with stunning accuracy. It is the perfect Christmas Decoration for the mystery of a dark Christmas night. The feeling of wandering, late at night, in a fey-like grove, "Dark and Deep".
Frost Ends his poem with the open-ended and curious final two lines of the poem, "And miles to go before I sleep". This dark mystery entirely consumes this royal purple Christmas Bouquet. These royal, rich, luscious colours encapsulate Frost's esoteric classic. A short breath of cold air in a night, almost frozen in time, as the world around it carries on without you.
The Perfect Reminder of Christmas Hope
In 1914, there was an event only described as a Miracle. After half a year of fighting on the front lines of World War One, the guns fell silent on Christmas Eve.
Across the trenches, the soldiers of great empires missed their families, their homes. So many began to sing carols, share gifts. Some even call across no-mans-land to their enemies, wishing a happy Christmas.
The "Christmas truce" is a testament to humanity shining through even in the worst of times. The Pink Rebellion Preserved Floral arrangements evoke these feelings of goodwill and kindness. Ian McMillan's "The Game" is the perfect accompaniment to these flowers.
This Christmas, give a gift that wishes goodwill to all men and reminds us of all the innocence within us. Let this soft, precious Christmas bouquet of flowers remind us of the fallen. Those who've fought to bring us the peaceful Christmases. Remembrance is not only for November.
Coming home for Christmas
For many people, Christmas is the perfect time to visit family. Many of us live many miles away from home. But once a year, you return to your home towns. T.S. Eliot presents this feeling in "Preludes" with fantastic skill.
Eliot describes "Smell[s] of steaks in passageways" and "Withered leaves about your feet". The poem is reminiscent of an Urban Jungle, with all kinds of smells, sights, and sounds. The attractive Christmas flower decoration will bring the world home with you. Let the changing of the seasons become a homely feeling.
Both the poem and these flowers give off an ethereal, urban nature. This delicate yet indescribable feeling of belonging. That is the Christmas Bunch to welcome a long-estranged family member home. So this Christmas, have your home smell of something infinitely gentle.
