Snowy Deer at Treetops

It's such a busy time getting the house ready for Christmas, but lovely to glimpse out of the window and see the Winter Wonderland, especially the deer desparately looking for something green to nibble!

I've put the cranberries around the candles into my hurricane lamps and am about to make my amaryllis arrangement that Susanna showed us how to make at Christmas Flowers.

Festive Flowers 2010

 Susanna from Tiger Rose was here today and yesterday for two Festive Flower classes.
The classes went really well, and 18 people went home very happy with their wreaths for their front doors.  The wreaths all looked so different, but were all full of beautiful things such as oranges, limes, chillies, walnuts, eucalyptus, cranberries, chillies etc.......

Susanna has an endless supply of lovely foliage, in all shades of green, some with berries and some without, it's great to have so much to choose from.

After some Mulled Wine and lunch, we got back to work with some"floral embroidery"; making some pretty gift tags.  All you need is a glue gun and tiny berries and bits of flowers, plus a bit of speed as the glue dries so quickly! 

Susanna is back on Tuesday 10 May, for Relaxed Summer Flowers, using garden flowers to create beautiful arrangements to decorate your home, or to give as gifts.

9.45am - 2pm
includes all your materials, light lunch and your floral creation to take home with you.
