Our Favourite Real Christmas Wreaths

The wreath is a historical tradition packed with symbolism; in classical times, they are said to have signalled victory, and now they are synonymous with joy and the welcoming of guests and never more so than at Christmas.

So we’re giving a bit of a shout out to some of our favourites, of course they had to be real, and preferably West Country made, so here’s who we have chosen.....

The Real Cut Flower Garden

Charlie Ryrie started the business because of her deep love of traditional flowers.  They send their stunning preserved beech wreaths out on 16th-19th December. They make a lovely present and arrive tissue wrapped and boxed. Wreaths for Christmas 2019 are created from preserved British foliage, combined with bright threads of curly willow and woven through with bright British woollen ribbons from textile design studio WallaceSewell.  The beech will gradually turn deepest bronze and the wreaths can be put back in their boxes and kept for years if they are used inside as the preserving process should prevent leaves from crinkling, wilting or dropping.

Georgie Newbery of Common Farm Flowers is a long term friend of ours & her flowers are fabulous all year long. She has a social media following that postively glows!  We just love her Somerset Willow Wreaths, whether you choose to go to one of her workshops (& Siobhan can vouch that these are absolutely fabulous and the best fun!) or order one made by Georgie & her team, you really won't be disappointed. Festoon your front door with a Common Farm Flowers Christmas willow wreath, created from treasures gathered from Somerset hedgerows

And afterwards you can keep the gorgeous mulit coloured willow wreath & hang it in your garden to decorate throughout the year with seasonal flowers.
