Yule need a festive wreath this Christmas

Interiors-obsessed blogger Becky Pink ventures outside for her latest Home to Home column for Celebrate:MK, which is about making a festive wreath to brighten up your front door this Christmas.

Is it too early to mention Christmas? It’s my favourite time of year, so I’m already planning.

As well as buying presents, my other main priority is making our home cosy and festive.

I’ve always wanted to go to a Christmas wreath workshop, but never had the time.

Now my youngest is at school, I think the time is finally right!

There are plenty of places to make wreaths, but they sell out, so my advice is to book now!

If you want to make a beautiful traditional wreath like this one below, Lathbury-based Field Gate Flowers have two workshops, costing £45, on December 9.

Their workshop is suitable for beginners, and more experienced amateur florists, and all materials are provided.

Plus, there will be mulled wine and nibbles to get you in the Christmas spirit.

You can book online at http://www.fieldgateflowers.co.uk

Maybe you prefer a more contemporary wreath, like the one below from Woburn Sands-based florist The Country Flower Company?

Creative Director Jemma favours seasonal wreaths, which are festive, but less overtly Christmassy.

She tailors her workshops, should her pupils want a more traditional look.

Jemma has several workshops planned in the run up to Christmas, including one at Southwood Stores in Swanbourne on the 7th December.

She can also do private workshops at your home, for a group, all suitable for beginners.

These wreath workshops are also £45 each, with all materials included, and festive nibbles and a glass of fizz to enhance the Christmas vibe.

You can book online at http://www.southwoodstores.co.uk or contact Jemma through their website at http://www.thecountryflowercompany.com.

Imagine making something this beautiful (below). It would certainly brighten up your front door!
