I don’t know about where you are, but it’s flipping freezing here! With these frosty days in mind, I wanted to share with you these beautiful ice bowl creations made by Anne-Marie at Forage For (she also grows flowers in her Suffolk garden for weddings so do check her out if you’re getting hitched in that part of the country).
Anne-Marie has been making these wonderful frozen ice bowls using her seasonal British flowers to decorate them. I love this idea and it’s so simple to create (just scroll down for the instructions) and could be made at any time through the year. Whether you made them for your wedding or for a party, I’m sure they would cause a bit of a stir!
Can’t you just imagine these as focal points on a dessert table filled with ice cream or a larger version could even keep your drinks cool. Anne-Marie filled this yellow chrysanthemum ice bowl with lemon sorbet to show you how they can be used.
Happy 1st of December everyone! Yesterday afternoon I mentioned that I was going to make these four weekends in the run up to Christmas all about crafting, decorating and gifts for the festive period, so here I am with the first of those specials. To make it easy to find all the special Christmas blog posts, I’m going to tag them with ‘Natural Wedding Christmas Special’.
Support our British flower growers this year by proudly displaying a seasonal Christmas wreath on your front door
I absolutely love wreaths, I wish that we were more like the States and had wreaths for different seasons and celebrations throughout the year, and not just Christmas – anyone else up for starting this trend? Perhaps The New Wives Club could get a group of us to make a wreath for each month of 2013 and we could share our pictures? Am I getting carried away :)
A number of the lovely florists and flower farmers listed on the TNWC directory have started to release details of upcoming wreath workshops and how to order their Christmas wreaths online, so I thought to help you all out I’d do a feature to showcase a lot of them all in one place.
Plus, there are a couple of exclusive discounts for TNWC readers below, so don’t miss out on those!
