With Christmas nearly upon us, we were delighted to welcome Fiona Penny to the Castle for our first Wreath Making workshop at The Penn.
We know Fiona well as she styles our inhouse flowers and we regularly collaborate on Castle weddings and events so to say we were excited at the prospect of an evening filled with her festive cheer was an understatement!
Secateurs at the ready, our guests arrived at the Castle to the smell of delicious mulled wine and mince pies.
After Fiona’s initial demonstration explaining how to create the wreath base, everyone was let loose to create their own masterpiece. Amongst the holly, ivy and eucalyptus leaves emerged a wealth of impressive designs and adornment (along with a healthy dose of friendly competition!) resulting in a beautiful array of Christmas wreaths for everyone to take home.
A magical night was had by all and definitely got us into the Christmas spirit.
