Christmas time…mistletoe and wine…

It’s here, the festive frenzy that is Christmas!!! The shop has been dressed for a couple of weeks now but I thought I’d give you an opportunity to look around even if you don’t manage to physically get into the shop, how lucky are you?! Come on in…wp_20161203_11_40_03_pro

 

First up, our Christmas windows…no, we didn’t win the window competition this year, Congratulations to Cubecure by the way, (she says, through gritted teeth) with their fabulous wooden wonderland. But, we’re still very happy with ours, despite the torment it causes me every year!! 🙂

We’ve got some beautiful Christmas gifts stacked around the shop at the moment and that loveliness is only going to get better as we get closer to the big day. Christmas visiting starts as soon as December hits so we’ve got lots of cute pick up gifts ready in the shop, priced from £5.00 they’re the perfect little something!

Next up, we have wreaths for your door, a selection of Spruce or Holly ones…or even, FULL ON GOLD GLITTER ONES!!!

We’ve got some lovely little bulb planters in the shop, Hyacinths/Crocus, all waiting to get into the warmth and bloom for you.

We have city scape candle holders that create a lovely glow sat on your fireplace or window sill and priced at only £4.50/£11.95 they are a bargain!

Hampers and bags to pop all those lovely goodies in, a few different sizes, big and bulky, small and petite and elegantly slim line (I’m not sure how a bottle bag can be elegantly slim line but it sounds good, sooo…) Priced from £2.50 why not fill them up with other goodies from our village, toys from The Magic Box, Cheese, Biscuits and WINE from Goodness me, some fabulous art from Enjoy Art and other little trinkets from Cubecure!

 

Flower deliveries will commence on the 22nd and we’ll be delivering right through until Christmas Eve! A few examples are below but all our bouquets are bespoke, made individually and designed on the day, feel free to request specific things, Lilies, Amaryllis, Berries, Gerberas, Roses…the list goes on and on (it really does).

 

Table Centrepieces can be ordered now and then collected nearer the time – candles, no candles, flowers, no flowers…I fear I’m giving you too much choice now!

img_2529And with that, I’ll say goodbye, hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and New Year and I’ll soon you in January, hopefully as fresh as a daisy (see what I did there)…if I don’t indulge in too much mistletoe and wine! 🙂

It’s Chrissssttmmmasss…

Welcome, welcome to this festive time of year, I’ve not posted for a while so thought I better get some Christmas goodness out there…

Our Christmas window has been up and shining since the beginning/middle of November, yes I know it was early but if Liberty and Bergdorf Goodman have their windows in place then I thought Marsden deserved the same..it was only decent of me to oblige!

I wanted a sparkle window (obviously) and a more traditional window, trying to go with some pagan themes, so we have wood slices (yule log), foliage, including holly and ivy and natural mossed window frames, bringing the outside in!

The Christmas lights are switched on, (yes, that is a toilet on the side of the Mechanics Hall) but that’s what I love about the Marsden Christmas lights, they’re different…very different, and individual.

We’ve got lots of gorgeous goodies in the shop, plants, flowers, beautiful hanging decorations for your tree or just garnish the whole house with them…I have!

We’ll be delivering right up until Christmas Eve (whenever I write that I think, does that mean we’re delivering on Christmas Eve too, because we are, but I’m never sure how to articulate that)!  We’ve got foliage, flowers, ribbons, cellophane, brown paper, tissue paper, poinsettias, silver spray, gold spray, decorations, Christmas trees, bulbs, pine cones, orange slices…the list really is endless.

Come and see us, buy for a friend, a loved one, yourself even, and we’ll treat every customer (as always) like you’re royalty, Christmas royalty at that…if there is such a thing?!

Have a wonderful time this Christmas and Thank you for your continued support.

The preparations begin…

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!
