A plethora of last minute gift ideas for the festive season featuring some of my own creations but mostly products from local businesses and some very talented local artisans.
THE SIDMOUTH DIY CHRISTMAS WREATH KIT & LUXURY HAMPER BOX- LAST ORDERS: SATURDAY 19TH DECEMBER 2020
A new idea this year (with a nod to c-19) - a complete Christmas wreath workshop in a box! Inspired by and helped enormously by community-minded Lydia Baker, owner of WillowstudioSidmouth, we have worked together to offer this unique idea available for contact free "pick up from my bench" collection in Sidmouth or "doorstep delivery" (at an extra cost).
The kit contains all that you need to create your own beautiful. all natural, wreath with keepsake decorations, bells & ribbons to enhance it plus comprehensive illustrated (with beautiful photographs taken by Lydia featuring my daughter making a wreath at our hearthside) instructions. Each box contains enough for one wreath but can of course be made by two. Complete kit £35
If you are feeling like a little spoiling, why not add on a luxury box full of local products - enough to entertain up to four people. Choose from each of the four local small businesses listed below to customize your box to your own specific taste. Wreath Kit & Luxury Gift for £75.
If you would like to support small local businesses further, vouchers are available for each one taking part in this collaboration and can be slipped into either the wreath kit box or the luxury gift box - a great gift for yourself or to pop in to a Christmas card for someone you love. Gift vouchers - from £25
Please get your orders in very soon to avoid disappointment as these wreath kits will only be available for the first two weeks of December and numbers may be limited if demand is high.
Thank you so much www.willowstudiosidmouth for the photographs & promotional videos and reels supplied for this collaboration.
BESPOKE HYDRANGEA WREATHS LAST ORDERS: SATURDAY 19TH DECEMBER
Back by popular demand these wreaths to order - each can be made to your taste - if you would rather it not be too Christmas-sy, so that it can grace your home all year round, or just through the chilly season, or if you would prefer it less or more 'blingy', in certain shades, etc, we can talk it through and I will create it to your individual specifications. Each one takes several hours to make and is completely unique. I gather the hydrangeas and dry them before breaking them apart to create a colourful patchwork effect on a dry oasis wreath ring. For this particular design, the dried wildflower heads were similarly hand gathered and sprayed with several coats of gold. An assortment of bells attached to hand-frayed gilt ribbons are arranged at the base with a wired-edged top quality golden bow and organza ribbon loop at the top.
This item is delicate and I am not happy to send it through the postal system.
Prices vary but start at £40 Please order early to avoid disappointment as I only use this year's dried hydrangeas which are in limited supply - I am taking orders now. FOR COLLECTION/DELIVERY FROM 1ST NOVEMBER
