A Very Jolly Christmas Workshop

I am at Stourhead making wreaths and arrangements in a Christmas workshop - we have carols and chocolate cake, and my phone has no reception here. What more could you want?!
For the first arrangements I demonstrate, I go for smokey hydrangeas, a pretty rose called Upper Secret and a splash of gold eucalyptus.
Then just a touch of something darker to set the colours off - burgundy skimia and tiny spray chrysanthemum heads.
There is enough left for a luscious hand-tie that is now sitting opposite me as I type this. Well, there have to be some perks for carrying all those flowers around!
Everyone then has a go at making a door wreath - it is interesting to see how different they all are.
I also show how to make a large white and silver table arrangement before we all have a go at some pudding basin arrangements.
I love these old fashioned bowls. Although I think our local hardware store think I am mad seeing the amount I order.
And if you didn't want to surround the candles with flowers you could always fill the edge with nuts or clementines.
Perfect
