Christmas is fast approaching and the count down to the biggest date of the year is now in just double figures!
I for one haven’t bought a single present, but I am aware that lots of other people are far more organised than me, and the way my Christmas workshops are becoming booked are proof of that!
Two evening wreath making evening workshops are completely full at The Turtley Corn Mill, which is great news. There are also only a few spaces left at The Devonport Guildhall Candlelit Christmas Workshop which is taking place on Wednesday 3rd December from 7 until 8.30 pm. All materials along with seasonal refreshments will be provided. It is sure to be a fun evening, so if you do fancy coming along, please be sure to book soon!
I am also holding workshops on Friday 5th December at St. Annes Church Hall in Glenholt from 10.30am until 12.30pm and on Saturday 6th December at Colebrook Community Centre from 10am until 12pm. Both workshops cost £25 and include all materials needed to make a stunning door garland, as well as seasonal refreshments! (Although it may be a little early in the day for Mulled Wine!) Please do book to avoid disappointment as these workshops are becoming increasingly popular.
In other news, last Tuesday saw the start of my Evening Workshop! A lovely collection of ladies came along for the first week and I am looking forward to creating seasonal designs with them over the next 9 weeks. Its not too late to join – just get in touch if you would like to come along.

This week has been one to make us realise that summer is well and truly behind us! The evenings seem to be getting longer by the day and it is easy to come home and hibernate in front of the fire….
Perhaps though, we should look at this dark and cold season as a time to get creative and meet new people. Workshops during the autumn and winter months are getting more and more popular. From book clubs to cake decorating, you can do it all on these dreary long evenings! I, of course, suggest getting creative with some beautiful fresh flowers! Not only is it the perfect opportunity to meet like minded friendly flowery sorts and learn a new skill, it also means you can take whatever you create home and brighten up your house for the next week or so – what more could you want? Check out my workshops and classes page to find out what you could come and join.
During the summer months, I have been fortunate enough to meet some lovely suppliers whilst setting up for weddings in various parts of Devon. At the end of August, I met the lovely Simon of Simon Rawling Photography . This week Simon kindly sent me a selection of stunning photos from the wedding and I am thrilled to have them to use on my site and to promote my work.
Receiving beautiful photographs gives me the opportunity to reflect on how lucky I have been to work with such lovely couples this year. It also fills me with enthusiasm for the weddings I still have to do for this year, and with excitement for the new couples I have been meeting with recently to discuss their weddings for next year!
If you would like to discuss your wedding flowers then please do get in touch, I would be thrilled to speak with you.
You can see a selection of my work on my Facebook page, as well as on my weddings page on this site. You can also come and see a selection of my work at the upcoming Langdon Court wedding fair, Sunday 30th November from 12pm. Look forward to seeing you there!
