Christmas decorating ideas

I love this time of year, but boy there’s so much to do!  Naturally, planning my Christmas décor is top of my list and delegating tasks to the rest of the family comes next …


Last week I spent the morning in the company of seven delightful ladies all eager to learn how to mix their garden greenery and foraged materials with a few clever buys from the florist.

We started with the tour of our host’s middle sized town garden and discussed which garden foliage works best for decorating with at Christmas, how to use plant seed-heads and how to forage for added special touches.


With plenty of tea and homemade cake we worked our way through creating a staircase garland, mantelpiece arrangement and a door wreath.


Scissors at the ready we each made an individual table arrangement.

A short blog post this time, but with a link to a write up by our host Alexandra Campbell.   As well as blogging about middle sized gardens Alexandra also runs fabulous workshops on how to blog, so do check her out.


Until next time, happy flowers!
