    Pampas grass Christmas tree trend

    Festive fanatics are always putting creative new spins on more ‘traditional’ Christmas trees. So we think it was only a matter of time until the pampas grass Christmas tree trend burst onto the scene in a flourish of fluffy plumes.

    We’ve seen sparse and asymmetrical trees and we’ve even had some suspended from the ceiling. But the pampas grass Christmas tree trend brings a fresh bohemian feel, and something a little unexpected.

    Plus, it works beautifully in neutral colour schemes, as @cuckoo4design’s living area shows. With 120 posts on Instagram, we predict the pampas grass Christmas tree trend is going to gather speed this year.

    Blogger Julia from @cuckoo4design reveals exactly how to recreate her large dried floral Christmas tree (above, top) on her website. She also has a how-to for her smaller pampas grass tree, above if you’re tight on space.

    The pampas grass love is real, and we wouldn’t be surprised if the trend was even bigger this year than 2020. After all, last summer, people were even warned to stop stealing it from beaches and gardens.

    ‘Pampas grass has become one of the biggest floral trends in the past few years and is set to continue, due to being natural, low-maintenance and able to coordinate in any room,’ says Mary Rose, Buyer at Dunelm. ‘The dried floral is suitable for wreaths and garlands, which Dunelm is introducing into its Pretty Boho range for SS22.’
