I have been busy again today trying out my floristry skills (or lack of them compared with the professionals!!) I have been busy at the kitchen table this afternoon making a moss wreath decorated with Ivy from the garden, an ornamental cabbage and five red roses. Great fun and very messy!!
Here it is, the colours look quite striking against our oak front door.
I did a wreath making course last year at our local garden centre and this has given me the idea to have a go myself and make a Christmas wreath for the front door. I would love to have a go at doing a floristry course properly. We are lucky we have some wonderful Ivy growing in our back garden so I haven't had to go out raiding the hedgerows (which apparently is illegal!!)
Some of the ivy left over I have wound around the Sanctuary lamp in the dining room to give it a festive make over.
I should really light the candle in it to complete the effect.
I have also finished off decorating the mantlepiece in the dining room with some Ivy and sprigs of holly from the garden.
Even the miniature Victorian Greenhouse on top of the old linen press which houses the television has not escaped being decorated. I am still in the process of finishing off decorating so will do another post showing it all completed. Hope you have all had a great weekend, and glad you all liked the story of the Fonz pinching my mince pie!!
