Especially during the holidays, I love fresh flowers. If I had a staff here at FrenchGardenHouse {besides Bentley!} I might want to fill each and every room with fresh floral bouquets.



But alas, all Bentley is good for is following me around and waiting to see if there will be food involved for him, in any and every way! Below is a photo of our rascal from a few years ago.



So aside from one or two large fresh flowers during this festive time, I count on some sublime faux.


Faux holiday floral arrangements and topiaries bring the garden inside without the fuss.


Today the LES BELLES FLEURS Holiday Collection is launching, and I’m excited to share it with you!



Let’s go back to the photo of our living room for a minute, so I can show you the small white potted amaryllis. {They are my favorite flower for the holidays.}

Simple and elegant, the white amaryllis flowers channel all the beauty of winter. Our Hiver Magique White Floral Arrangement is slightly dusted with a bit of faux snow, as are the pine sprays, reminding you of that holiday you spent {before kids} skiing in the glamorous French ski resort of Courchevel. It brings the magic of the quaint villages of France to your home this season!

The attention to every tiny detail makes this arrangement the perfect present to brighten the home of someone you love. {and your own!} The soft petals of the enchanting pristine white flowers stand out amidst the green pine. Natural reindeer moss adds a soft touch, and our signature gilded bee is just the right compliment to the white decorative pottery pot. They are small enough to pop into lots of small spaces.





I love all the flowers and topiaries in this collection, but I think my favorite is this centerpiece with faux cedar, green berries and gilded natural pinecones that complement the sparkle of the glass chimney. Just add a votive candle, and voilà your chic holiday arrangement is complete.

Tied with a French green and white striped grosgrain ribbon {removable} for an extra dose of French savoir faire. This centerpiece will add big city sparkle to any setting, but is just as fabulous on a wood farm table. Arrange a few of these down the center of your holiday tables for an easy sparkling table. Includes glass chimney on metal footed base. I have used these for many dinners here already, sometimes I tuck little fresh white roses in the cedar.





Topiaries are always a staple around here, this season I found a few that I love now, but they will also be wonderful for the rest of the year. I place them on my mantels, on bookshelves, and one on each side of the farm sink in our French Country kitchen.





Each floral collection has a few hand tied custom bouquets.

Deliciously detailed, our Provençal Winter Wine Passion Bouquet will take center stage with its effortlessly arranged faux flowers and greens. A luscious combination of bramble burgundy roses, joined by golden wild raspberries, red berry stems, magnolia branches, woodland fern, and a single merlot hydrangea, it is absolutely stunning! A pine branch adds magic. Deep jewel tones abound in this vibrant bouquet of incredibly realistic faux flowers. Inspired by the natural meadow arrangements made in France by the best flueristes.

This decorative bunch of flowers will create holiday magic in your home anywhere you display it.



Sometimes the best things come in small packages, and our petit Holiday arrangements are no exception. Created by hand in our own FrenchGardenHouse studio, these petit arrangements are bound to make a joyful statement this season and throughout the winter.

Perfect for your side table, your guest bathroom, or a pair on your mantel. Anywhere you place them, they bring the joy of the holidays!  These usually sell out fast, I keep production to 25 of each style, although each is slightly different, each is an original because they are made by individually by hand.




I hope that you are enjoying decking your halls for this beautiful season!  Treat yourself to some beautiful flowers, faux or real.  Happy decorating!!





à bientôt


  1. Just like you I adore white amaryllis for the season but because I live in the land of flowers I use real ones but I must admit the faux ones are looking very good.
    I love your staff, we’ve got 1 of our own.A cockapoo rescued from the shelter.

  2. Lidy at FrenchGardenHouse

    Anja, I miss living in Holland for the flowers!! I prefer real too,and will be buying some soon, but here in California they don’t last as long as where you are. But they will be available soon. In the meantime, my staff and I enjoy the “faux” here and there. : )

  3. Lidy, I agree that the amaryllis is the perfect Christmas flower. These arrangements are beautiful and the size makes them so versatile. I really really love the little lambs. Always so beautiful Lidy.

    1. Thank you so much Dianne. I love the little lambs too, they came from a wonderful European collection. xo
