Deck the Halls

Well, the door anyway :)

For her Christmas present this year, I took Lynn to the florist near my work for a workshop to create a Christmas wreath.
We joined a class of 12 and were given a blue spruce ring, pre-made by the florist as they can be
quite tough on the hands.
We were invited to peruse many embellishments in the shop to gather elements with a set budget (included in the cost of the evening).
I chose glass beaded stems, glittered leaves and pinecones for mine, Lynn chose more traditional elements for hers. We had a lovely evening and enjoyed a glass of wine and mince pies (well Lynn did 'cos I dont like them!)
and were taught how to wire and construct our pieces.
Here is mine:

And here is Lynn's which is just beautiful.

The shop is called Floral Explosion in Longfield but they also have a stall at Bluewater.

Wishing you all a very Happy Christmas!

What a lovely present, thank you. Have blogged mine too.
Your wreath looks super up on the door. Beautiful.

I agree, what a wonderful and original gift. Love Lynn's one and I love your one too, both different but both lush. They both look fantastic hanging on your doors :)
