Julie's Advent Calendar for 2016

11th December, 2016

Tomorrow we are meeting at Hawthorn's home to make Christmas wreaths.  We have been doing it for years, initially in the Parish Hall but now it is just a much smaller group of friends who bring greenery out of their gardens as well as a contribution towards lunch.  I am sure Hawthorn will take some beautiful photographs of our efforts to show on her blog.

Last year I decided on something different.  Instead of the usual wreath on the front door I decorated my hanging baskets on either side of the door.  I am not sure what I will do this year - possibly do the same again as I liked the way they survived better than the wreath has on previous years possibly because I left the soil in the baskets and pushed a block of Oasis into each which kept moist for weeks. 


  1. That is a lovely idea, I think I may snaffle the idea and do the same!

  2. Clever idea and very effective.

  3. Very good idea, especially in our heat and it is lovely too.

  4. They were very good and lasted for ages - definitely a do it again decoration!

  5. I just popped in on the wreath making day to have a look and found a hive of activity; wreaths and greenery everywhere and everyone was having fun, nibbling and cutting and making lovely wreaths.
