Creative Christmas workshop

Last week I held my first interior styling and hoop wreath making workshop with Nicole from @poetryofdecor. The event was held in a beautiful bright outbuilding at Court Farm Garden Centre in leafy Surrey.

We had an early start and a busy morning setting up for the event.

Once everyone arrived we started the workshop with a presentation about how to style your home for Christmas from the outside in! Both our homes have appeared in interior magazines such as 25 Beautiful Homes, Reclaim and Style at Home.

Nicole gave us all brilliant painting tips and tricks and talked through our beautiful table setting

Wilko kindly supplied the tableware for us to style at our event. Everything you see here can be purchased at Wilko. The branch was foraged and sprayed in Wilko gold paint.

Wilko have a stunning range of baubles! They can be placed in bowls, branches, attached to wreaths or of course they can adorn your Christmas tree. We worked with rich colours such as forest greens, coppers and golds to create a luxurious modern rustic feel.

We made mini rosemary wreaths and attached labels, handwritten by myself @ginandinteriors to create pretty table name settings.


The table was kindly supplied by @taylorgreyhome.

Then it was time to get creative! Firstly we all cut the faux eucalyptus to size and arranged the stems around the hoop. These were then attached with florist wire wrapped tightly around the hoop.

I explained how to dry oranges. These were homemade and can be added to wreaths used to make garlands or even added to your G&T!

I love how each wreath was unique! No two the same and everyone did an amazing job!


Ta dah! Here is one I made earlier! Just add some ribbon, string or jute, hang up and admire.

After coffee, mince pies and a good old natter. We also made a table garland from olive branches foraged from Nicole's amazing garden.

Team work!
