A stunning floral Christmas tree has been unveiled at St Pancras International station.
Designed by luxury florist Moyses Stevens, the handcrafted 47ft floral sensation is made from over 15,000 flowers and took 1,151 expert man hours to bring the unique design to life.
A truly spectacular centrepiece, the tree's branches are interlaced with roses; hydrangeas; delicate anemones; amaryllis, orchids; and dianthus; whilst pretty petals and pine cones are strung around the tree instead of twinkly lights.
The tree takes pride of place on the station concourse from until 3 January 2018.
'The unveiling of the St Pancras International Christmas tree is eagerly awaited each year, so we were thrilled to be given the responsibility to create this year's show-stopping spectacle,' said Gemma Kavanagh from Moyses Stevens florist. 'We pride ourselves on creating luxurious, detailed floral displays so we spent a great deal of time experimenting and planning to create a finished tree that will wow visitors to the station.
'We hope our creation will help fuel the trend for floral Christmas trees, inspiring even more people to enjoy having flowers in their home this winter.'
The floral Christmas tree trend has been around for a few years now, whereby people have been decorating their trees with beautiful, evergreen flowers – preferably artificial blooms – for a sophisticated twist.
Wendy Spinks, commercial director at HS1, added: 'This year's floral masterpiece from Moyses Stevens is the latest in a stunning line up of Christmas centrepieces at the station. In recent years, our Disney Junior, LEGO and Cirque du Soleil trees have all brought their own festive magic to St Pancras International, and this year's much anticipated floral tree continues that legacy.'
