Anyone that has stepped through our doors in Waterloo can tell you that we are not your typical flower shop. Rock music, laid-back attitudes and whimsical décor give our shop a unique environment for our designers to create to their full potential.

Founded on the concept of Everyday Luxury, at Charmed our smallest arrangements contain the same premium blooms as our large ones. Our florists strive to bring the highest quality blooms and curated gifts to your fingertips through our online store. I am happy to present our new holiday flower arrangement collection to you, and I hope you love them just as much as we do!

Evergreen Arrangements

If you are hosting several times throughout the holidays, we recommend selecting a living or evergreen flower arrangement – a centerpiece that features plants will last you into the new year.

This is an excellent eco-friendly alternative to cut flowers. You can also select an arrangement that is mostly winter greens. With regular watering, a greens arrangement can last for months, plus it gives off a fresh evergreen scent for your home!

Green and White Arrangements

Adding vibrant red flowers is an excellent way to bring colour into your home, however, it can be difficult to match with home décor that skews a little more modern. To pair with modern home décor, we recommend sticking with an elegant green and white theme to complement your home!

This style of arrangement is also an excellent option if you have played with colour in your everyday décor and you are in search of flowers that pair well with a variety of colours or patterns.

Modern Farmhouse

Modern farmhouse design has grown a lot since the days of rustic country charm. Today, it has evolved to be a blend of classic comfort and modern flair, emphasizing refined natural finishes such as wood, stone and a neutral palette.

Take your modern farmhouse décor a step further with flower arrangements to match! Farmhouse styles are well suited to warm reds and wood tones. Choose a centerpiece in a wood container and add pinecones to top it off. Once the flowers fade, you can remove them and keep watering the greens to enjoy for weeks to come!
