Winter Moments with Flowers 2017 - by air
The advent of winter and the festive season is an excellent time to enjoy this spectacular annual occasion of floral magic in Bruges. This event is open for one weekend only.
When Christmas approaches, there is no better way to be inspired (and also do a spot of early shopping), than visiting the remarkable Fleur Creatif floral extravaganza. This is the biggest internationally renowned winter floral event, with floral artistry featured in a festive, Yuletide atmosphere!
Master florists and amateur floral designers participate in this floral exhibition, decorating and creating displays with Christmas and winter themes. From the traditional to the latest in contemporary floral design there are arrays of floral talent on show to create a magical atmosphere. The event is tremendously enjoyable with many returning each year for the floral pleasure of it.
There is always a selection of floral table designs to inspire your own festive table top settings. Last year Anneke Catrysse andHilde De Mol created captivating, luminous and colourful informal table decorations while Fred Riek Van Pamel produced a display fit for the grandest Yuletide feast.
Held in the beautiful and historic city of Bruges at the Oud sin Jan, in the heart of the city, floral designers will inspire you with their bold use of flowers and artistic creations: large ornamental Christmas trees made from red Azaleas; a floral wreath of 100 Silver Stachys leaves and lime green Chrysanthemums (a winning creation by Jantine van Bruggen); a room of red Amaryllis arranged in a rhythmic fashion and, as ever, traditional fir trees decorated for the season.

Essential materials for modern floral designers are on sale. With many of the sundries not easily available in the UK, this is a great opportunity to do some stocking up!
In addition, Bruges has many boutiques to browse for Christmas shopping. The annual Christmas Market which is held at the end of November also offers a chance to find traditional festive treats to bring back. Make sure to ask us about the best artisan chocolatier to visit!
Bruges is known as the Venice of the North, one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, with a stunning medieval city centre holding World Heritage status.
Bruges is particularly attractive during the festive season with a traditional Christmas market to attend and an annual display of large ice sculptures magically lit up to add to the festive sparkle.
