December 2013 meeting: festive wreaths

December’s meeting was filled with christmas tunes, mulled wine, mince pies and dose of crafty inspiration as the lovely Sarah from the Hornsey Garden Centre came to teach us how to make your very own floral table decorations and wreaths.

We were each given a host of foliage and the necessary tools to create a beautiful decoration and Sarah took us through each step in detail so that we each knew the basic skills to make the perfect wreath. After much cutting, wrapping and arranging we each had a circle of moss and pine and we were let loose on the oranges, pine cones and ribbons to bedeck our creations to our heart’s content.

I was really impressed at the high quality of everyone’s efforts and it was such a lovely meeting. A fantastic way to start the month of December!
