So, here we are, our third instalment and possibly our last of the year, although I may stretch myself as we get into the thick of the festive season and send you a fabulous photo filled blog of Christmas ideas and gifts!
First up – a few events going on in the village –
24th Nov – Christmas window unveiling (I know I’m getting ahead of myself with the unveiling word but I am very excited).
25th Nov & 10th Dec – Late night shopping
6th Dec – Christmas Light switch on
17-18th Dec Flower arranging classes in the shop
We’ve been busy busy with wedding enquiries for 2015 and even a couple for 2016 (SUPER organised people). It’s so exciting meeting a new bride and groom to be and discussing their big day, their ideas and colours. This month we’ve had a wedding that was a bit different, although very on trend, we used succulent plants for the bridal and bridesmaid bouquet! Love the colours…
The last couple of weeks have been spent prepping (and fretting) about the W.I flower arrangement evening I’ve been booked in for, planning my talk, the arrangements, timing myself to make sure what I think is a good half hour of chat doesn’t actually turn into 7 minutes. In the end it turned out well although I think I may possibly have speed talked my way through it, ‘something new under the belt’ said Mum…’just before Christmas? I don’t need anymore under this belt thank you very much!!
I created four arrangements in total – a mantelpiece arrangement with two different colour schemes – Au natural and silver sparkles
I also created some table centrepieces that we’ll be doing in our flower arranging classes and that can be bought from us in the shop over the Christmas period – you’ve got to make your table look gorgeous for the big feast!! 🙂
And so now onto the windows and the preparation that comes along with Christmas, cellophane cutting, bow making, arrangement creating, decorations and glitter…everywhere, it’s only just come out of my hair from last year!
