Small Christmas Decorations for your Table

Judith Fothergill and Brenda Taylor expertly demonstrated creating small Christmas table arrangements. Decorating a re-used Christmas wreath, recycling humble tins, adorning them with Christmas ribbons and lights. Chicken wire was inserted instead of oasis floral foam, and by adding holly, ivy, spruce, flowers and baubles this modest tin was soon transformed. Instructions followed on how to wire acorns, use kebab sticks and decorate a fish bowl (no fish were harmed in this demonstration!). Christmas readings where enjoyed, including: a Christmas letter from Tolkien, Helen Steiner Rice’s A Christmas Poem, and Alan Titchmarsh’s A Letter to St Nick.
