It’s time to deck those halls!

Now that we are on the very edge of Christmas month, it is finally okay to starting buying new decorations, getting existing ones out of their boxes and assembling this year’s Christmas ‘look’. Getting that all important theme right is so crucial … do you go achingly contemporary and minimal with a few glacial crystal drops on bare branches or for the full on, all singing and dancing, Santa hat-wearing traditional, red berried version

Either way, you need to start with your door … the literal gateway into your Christmas. So if you don’t have time to come to one of our Wreath Workshops, then you need to order a pre-made one now!

We’ve have four different wreaths available, with the same fresh moss base and foliage but each with something a little unique …

Lou Lou - xmas wreath with fir cones and spruce

First up is Lou Lou, with fragrant flowering eucalyptus, pine and grevillea foliage, white eryingium thistles (not spiky), green skimmia and natural fir cones. Priced at £40 plus delivery (which depends on where you are)

 

Glitterball - a xmas wreath with euca pods and glitter

Next is Glitter, featuring eucalyptus, green skimmia, euca pods, berried ivy with a subtle glittery garland detail. Priced at £40 plus delivery (which depends on where you are)

Berrilicious - a xmas wreath with berries and skimmia

Welcome to Berrilicious … a fruity little number with rosehips, red skimmia, flowering and preserved eucalyptus, pine and box foliage. Priced at £40 plus delivery (which depends on where you are)

faux foliage wreath

and finally, we have Goldilocks a sumptuous mix of fresh pink foliage with faux pine, mini fir cones and anenomes (flowers used may vary) with gold sprayed grevillea and a light frosting of snow. Priced at £45 plus delivery (which depends on where you are)

All wreaths feature a fresh moss base and have a hook at the top for ease of hanging. They can be ordered via email, paid for on PayPal and the last date for ordering is December 12. P&P will be confirmed on receipt of order once delivery address is known

It’s Chriiiiissstmaaaaaasss!!


Crafty creative types are in for a treat this Christmas. For those looking for a creative activity around the festive holidays, we are running a series of wreath-making workshops

The workshops run from 10-1pm, for small groups of six to eight, cost £45 per head and are based at our workshop at New Covent Garden Flower Market, in all its twinkling and festive glory, a truly magical place. The workshop will address wiring techniques, examples of finished wreaths and the various styles that can be achieved. Materials will be provided and Liz will provide step-by-step demonstrations, as well as personal tuition to produce the perfect, truly unique holiday wreath

Refreshments and morning pastries will be provided and participants will of course be able to take their work home with them to proudly display to friends and family. The wreaths should last right up until Christmas

The workshops will show just how delightful and unique Christmas wreaths can be. Participants can choose between making a traditional wreath, which would usually include a variety of foliage, fir cones, cinnamon, whole oranges or apples; or something more contemporary featuring colourful twigs, baubles, sprayed fir cones, ribbons, birds – almost anything goes!

The workshops, running on 3rd, 4th, 9th and 10th December, would make a unique seasonal hen party or just a fun day out with friends.

To book your place on our wreath-making workshop, or enquire about other workshops please contact Liz on liz@blueskyflowers.co.uk or call 07973 601 045
