So my Christmas wreath making workshops are wrapping up until next year. Here's a peek at some of the materials we've been working with. It's been all about the textures with pods and berries and the contrast of silk and velvet ribbons. We've used lots of fir and eucalyptus because both smell so lovely, and then added in fruit slices like these ones, and the delicate pink peppercorns. The colours are so pretty and I've loved seeing what everyone creates, each one is so unique and beautiful. I can't wait to do more again next year.
I've had such a lovely festive start to the month. The wreath workshops have been so much fun and I absolutely love helping people to create beautiful garlands for their fireplace or door. This year we've worked with a range of materials but the favourites have definitely been the eucalyptus foliage and pods, the seeded eucalyptus and the grey ribbons. Simple and elegant and perfect for a door at Christmas time.
Do you like this style or do you prefer something more classically 'Christmas' with reds and glitter and slices of fruit?
I think I'm a bit fickle really, I love them all! 🌿#christmaswreath#adoorforallseasons
5th December and we're all feeling pretty festive over here. The tree is up now and I'm off to do another Christmas wreath workshop this evening. I'm really looking forward to working with a beautiful country and equestrian store this evening. I keep being invited to these beautiful venues and it's just so exciting. Have a lovely day wherever you are ✨
I had the best weekend creating beautiful Christmas wreaths with a lovely group of ladies @tasteatno1 in Ludlow. There was botanical gin, lots of eucalyptus, ribbons and roses and of course lots of laughs too. I'm sorry I haven't been able to offer more dates for my workshops but I will be doing more next year.
How has your month started? Have you been doing lots of festive things? I've seen so many beautiful Christmas trees on here today ✨✨
We’re keeping it low key with the decorations this year. I’m digging the simplicity. Tip: Store wrapping supplies in plain sight. Along with our wrapping paper in the metal bucket, we keep all the tape, scissors, bows, etc in a decorative box on the hearth as well. No more searching for a good pair of scissors!
Thanksgiving is a time to gather with grateful hearts. A time to celebrate and appreciate our many blessing with those that we love. Friends and family come together to share a carefully planned and delicious feast. We all know that Thanksgiving is a holiday that doesn't get
a lot of attention, and is often passed right by in favor of Christmas decor and planning. Some of us at @friendswhoinspire and @fwiconnections thought it would be so fun share a virtual Friendsgiving with you all. We invite you to pull up a seat at our Grateful Gathering Tablescape Tour. Join us for our Friendsgiving by stopping by each account listed below to see how we set a welcoming table for the holiday. We would love for you to share with us what you're grateful for and let us know your favorite Thanksgiving dish in the comments. .

It might need a little trimming and a few embellishments but I’d say my first attempt at wreath making was a success! How do you guys avoid the materialistic hustle and bustle of this season??? I personally have found that making a few Christmas decor items each year has made the season more simple.
