It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas at home! We LOVE preparing for Christmas in our home and now that it is December it seems OK to start getting ready! I've been busy indulging in festive activities which all kicked off with my Christmas cake making.
Mmmmmm! The smell of the fruit steaming in sherry was truly wonderful!
Icing the cakes is the fun part! I decided to make one giant cake for us and then lots of small cakes to give away to colleagues.
Don't they look sweet!
My next crafty moment involved making a wreath for our front door. A local church was holding a 'festive florals' workshop. It was a great experience watching experienced florists work and learning lots of top tips from them whilst slurping down my first mulled wine of the year. Ah mulled wine, don't you just love it?
Not too bad for my first attempt!
It has definitely made me want to attempt more floral projects. A new year's resolution perhaps?
Right, I'm off to put the lights on the tree.
I hope you're starting to feel festive too!
