Christmas Wreath Workshop 2017
20 bottles of mulled wine and 20 mince pies later, I think I have survived my four Christmas Wreath Workshops spread throughout the first week in December. The workshops were held in the back room at Floral Dance complete with festive refreshments and music.
The ladies had full choice of dried articles such as hydrangeas, dried oranges, limes and pine cones. My large workshop table was covered with a mixed selection of Christmas foliage and an array of festive ribbons.
I thoroughly enjoyed meeting lots of interesting and like-minded folk. Everyone came away feeling very festive and merry and couldn’t wait to hang their beautiful creations on their front doors with pride.
