Dot and the Dandelion


Posts in dried flowers

This was Dot and the Dandelion’s first proper Christmas and it was such a special one. I love making Christmas wreaths, they are one of my favourite things to make, i really enjoy foraging and selecting all the materials for a wreath.

I decided this year i wanted to have a theme to my wreath designs and decided to go with Tchaikovsky’s ballet ‘The Nutcracker’. I based my wreaths around some of the central characters of the ballet, the Nutcracker, Sugar Plum fairy, Mother ginger and the Snow queen. It was really fun working with these characters as floral themes and allowed me to use a wide range of colour and texture.

With Christmas comes exciting floral jobs and i got to display my wreaths in some really lovely spaces including London cafe 26 grains and some of my favourite spots in Bristol including Papersmiths, Pasta Ripiena and Full Court Press.
