The other day my friend Lori invited myself and group of our blogger pals to a wreath making workshop with Laura Ashley.
It was set in the beautiful location of the Mockingbird cafe on Alma Vale Rd in Clifton. I'd not visited the cafe yet but know the area well as I used to work just minutes walk from there. The cafe is fantastic with a southern themed menu including breakfast biscuits (I chose the egg & cheese biscuit with chilli jam - so good!) and pretty much the best coffee ever.

The wreath kits are currently reduced from £40 to £21 which I think are a really reasonable price for the amount of things you get with them (click here to buy). Wilf came along too and was very interested in all the bits and bobs that you can decorate them with, especially the glitter acorns (my favourite too).
It's the first time I've ever decorated a wreath (or even had one for Christmas) and I'm excited to make this a yearly tradition. Wilf was super proud of our efforts and it was the first thing he told his granny about when he saw her.
We were kindly sent some beautiful flowers by Lloyds Flowers to use for styling too. I'm not really one for traditional so I decorated mine with as many mini pompoms as I could. Ever since this morning I've been feeling SO christmassy!
Thanks for putting on a lovely morning Lori! x
