Christmas is fast approaching, as you can tell by the plummeting temperature and twinkling shop windows. Many people have already put their Christmas trees up. Judging by the flood of festive Instagram pictures there seems to be a trend this year of decking the halls early to get the most from the season. And we're no different. Our festive display in The Shard Arcade has been up, sparkling away for weeks now. Have you seen it yet? Send us a picture on Instagram Facebook or Twitter if you approve.
Where can I get a Christmas tree in London Bridge and SE1?
If you haven't got a tree yet and live around London Bridge or the wider SE1 postcode just pop by and pay us a visit. We're selling Christmas trees at our annual Christmas tree pitch on the corner of Tanner Street and Bermondsey Street, along with an array of glittering branches, wreaths and other decorations.
The pitch is open Mon-Fri: 11:30am-7:30pm, Sat: 9am-7pm & Sun: 9am-6pm, right up to the 23rd December. But if you can't make it to our stall in person, there's another option.
Can I order my Christmas tree online and get it delivered?
Yes! This year we're selling trees and stands online for the first time. We'll also deliver to anywhere in our usual courier catchment for our standard delivery price. That's just £10 no matter what size you order. (Our superior Nordmann Fir trees go right up to 12ft and we can deliver to SE1, SE11, SE16, SE17, EC1, EC2, EC3, EC4, SW11, SW18 & SW4.) Click below to order your tree today.
What makes a Nordmann Fir tree so special?
The Superior Nordmann Fir is the unrivalled king of non-drop Christmas trees. The bushy shape of these Nordmann firs is of premium quality. These are superior grade trees, that you won't find in a high street retailer. Only 10-15% of all Christmas trees meet the criteria to make this grade and are fit to be classified as a "super premium" tree.That's why it's the only type of Christmas tree we stock at Igloo Flowers.
Christmas celebrations in London Bridge
We're pleased to be part of this year's Christmas video from The Shard and are proud to be working with them to raise money for the new Cancer Centre at Guy's Hospital.
Watch below and keep an eye out for our florist Ashleigh looking lovely in a Santa hat at the start and the boys from the B Street Deli selling a red panettone over the counter later on in the video.
A Christmas tip for our lovely customers: Keep an eye on The Shard's Countdown to Christmas competition here: http://www.the-shard.com/christmas/. We're not allowed to go into specifics, but we know for a fact that the prizes are amazing. Best of luck!
