Christmas tree

As decorative as it is indispensable, the Christmas tree is a must for the end of year celebrations. Nordmann or Nobilis, large or small? At Monsieur Fleur, there is something for everyone.

Our florists offer quality Christmas trees to make your holiday party unforgettable. Monsieur Fleur offers a personalised service and our team is available 7 days a week in our shops in Ixelles and Uccle!
We also have a large selection of florals and vases to choose from to embellish your Christmas party.

  • An emblematic element of the end-of-year celebrations, the Christmas tree is intimately associated with Christmas presents and the nativity scene. However, the origins of the Christmas tree custom are far from the religious symbolism it has today.
    Indeed, the Christmas tree is a tradition dating back to the Middle Ages, inspired by an ancient rite practiced at the time of the winter solstice.
    Subsequently, it was in the 12th century that the tradition of the Christmas tree appeared in Europe and more precisely in Alsace. In fact, it was in 1521 that the term “Christmas tree” was used for the very first time.

    But it was not until 1560 that the Christmas tree tradition really took hold in Europe, with the Protestant community using it to distinguish itself from the Catholics.
    Finally, it was not until the beginning of the 19th century that its use was generalised to the four corners of the globe.

  • Even if your living space determines the type of Christmas tree to choose, you should also take into account other criteria. There are several types of Christmas trees and each variety has its advantages.
    You can choose between two options

    • The potted tree once the festivities are over, it can be replanted. If you have a garden, this is the type of tree to choose. Potted trees do not lose their needles, regardless of their species.
    • Cut fir the colour and scent can vary greatly depending on the variety. This type of tree has the advantage of being less expensive but some species lose their needles quickly.

    In addition to garlands and wreaths, you can also decorate your home with hellebore, known as Christmas roses, or an amaryllis. These two varieties of flowers will bring a touch of greenery and warmth to your home during this winter period.

  • In addition to potted or cut trees, you can also choose from a wide variety of species.
    The three most popular varieties of fir are

    • The Nordmann fir with its pronounced green colour, this variety of fir is not very fragrant. For those who prefer subtle, unobtrusive scents, this is the Christmas tree for you.
    • The Nobilis fir has a very strong scent that is emblematic of the Christmas season. If you are a fan of strong fragrances, then this tree will give your home a touch of enchantment.
    • The Blue spruce  it has a beautiful blue colour. It also has the advantage of a subtle and slightly marked fragrance that will make everyone agree.

  • The care of a Christmas tree varies according to its species. Our florists will give you their advice on how to keep your tree as long as possible:

      • Avoid placing your tree near a source of heat, which may cause its needles to wither and alter its colour;
      • Place the trunk of your Christmas tree in a bucket of sand (which should be watered from time to time);
      • All cut trees tend to dry out. You can regularly mist your Christmas tree to help keep it fresh, as long as it is not decorated with electric lights.
  • If you have opted for a potted tree, the answer is yes!

    Once the Christmas celebrations are over, you can replant your Christmas tree in your garden (if you have one) or in the woods. This will give your Christmas tree a second life and you can even use it for the following year.
    How do you do it? Nothing could be simpler, just remove your tree with its root ball and place it in an appropriately sized pot.

    If you have chosen a cut tree, you should know that you can give it a second life by transforming it into mulch waste. To do so, please consult this article from the City of Brussels which explains how to harvest cut Christmas trees.
    The Monsieur Fleur team welcomes you to the shop, from the beginning of December, to offer you its selection of Christmas trees. Our florists take the time to understand your desires and needs to offer you the ideal Christmas tree.

  • The natural Christmas tree, an ecological and sustainable choice H3

    The natural Christmas tree has many advantages and is different from the artificial Christmas tree. Due to its environmental impact, the artificial Christmas tree is an environmentally unfriendly and unsustainable alternative. Artificial trees have several major drawbacks:

    • They are usually made of plastic and therefore contain petroleum residues;
    • Unlike natural trees, artificial trees have no smell;
    • They are not biodegradable and may contain harmful or chemical substances.

    This is why Monsieur Fleur only offers quality natural Christmas trees. This way, we guarantee exceptional quality and minimal impact on the environment.
    Because an eco-responsible approach is above all a coherent global service: Monsieur Fleur uses only natural twine and 100% recycled packaging.

    Do you want to make your Christmas party a memorable and warm moment? In our shops in Ixelles and Uccle, our florists will help and advise you according to your tastes and needs.
