Plant Designs

A brief description of who you are and what you offer

Plant Designs are a design focussed plant company that work designing and caring for plants across London. We supply office plants, planting for events, Christmas displays and also have a houseplant shop, where we run workshops on Exmouth Market EC1.

How do you stand out from other suppliers?

We really care about plants and good design. Our team are passionate plant enthusiasts and love bringing the joy of plants and Christmas to the capital. We design, deliver and hand decorate our Christmas trees onsite, rather than a one size fits all pre-dressed tree.

We also only work with replica trees for Christmas. This ensures displays look as fresh on the last day as the first and saves trees from being cut down. Once our replica trees have reached the end of their commercial use they are then donated to local charities and schools, so they get reused and enjoyed for years to come.

What are you offering this Christmas?

We always add new tree designs each year and this year is no different! We are introducing a cosy and rustic fireside inspired design and a sweet pink champagne tree, that is more contemporary. We also work with clients to create bespoke displays; the sky is the limit with these creations. We have made Christmas trees from plants, a festive countdown, a roof with Santa in the chimney and more besides. We look forward to working on some new bespoke Christmas designs in the coming months!



A brief description of who you are and what you offer

NVRLND are a team of performers that relish any opportunity and LOVE to perform. Christmas time is extra special as we love to make people smile and love Christmas as much as we do!

How do you stand out from other suppliers?

As business we stand out because we are an in house team of performers that constantly work together – like a little family of acts. We all work together, travel together and train together. We have the ability to create any act (as log as timeline allows) as we have an in house production team – a little bit like Santas workshop

What are you offering this Christmas?

We feel its so important to give acts roles and purpose. For example- our Festive Fairies grant wishes and acts of kindness to anyone who’s been good all year! Our Candycane acts always have bags full of treats and we animate it by asking the children to do something fun to interact with us.

We work along side the clients to bring each act to life in the best way for their brands / event – even tweaking acts we have to help get the best results from everything
