From Scandi chic to cheerfully colourful, create a Christmas wreath to suit you
03rd Dec 2021
There’s a wreath to suit every style, whether you’re into a minimalist Christmas or want something traditional. You can even have a go at making it yourself, with guidance from an expert florist.
Along with putting up the tree, hanging a beautiful wreath on your front door is one of the best ways to make your home feel ready for Christmas. Not only will it be a welcome sight every time you return home, it also gives a little festive cheer for anyone that’s passing. Whose day isn’t brightened up a little by spotting a particularly gorgeous wreath?
And if you’re buying a fresh one and want plenty of choices to match your style, then The Flowersmith Studio in Cork is the place to go, with lots of designs to choose from. As well as their fresh and dried floral creations for gifts, weddings and events, they also have a beautiful Christmas range.
You can buy wreaths that have been handmade by their team, join an in-person workshop in Cork, or enjoy an online wreath making workshop, guided by a video tutorial.
Whether you want a quiet afternoon of wreath-making as a treat to yourself, or want to organise a fun festive event with a few friends, it’s a lovely Christmas activity to really put you in the holiday spirit. Plus, you’ll learn some new skills and have a gorgeous wreath you can proudly display on your front door.
All that’s left is to choose your favourite style, so here are all the options.
