I usually buy a ready made wreath which already has the greens and adorn it with baubles, ribbon and candles, but I thought it would be nice to make something completely different this time.
I attended the workshop in my loves home town of Bocholtz. Bocholtz is a small village with one big asset (at least to me), Hoeve Scholtissenhof. Hoeve Scholtissenhof is located in a very old barn. Besides housing the owners, the barn also holds a lunchroom and a shop. The owner Marriet also teaches workshops for flower arrangements. In December there is also a really nice Christmas shop in the attic. The lunchroom serves delicious home made ice cream! In combination with a waffle, cherries and cream it is do die for.

Marriet first showed us in general how to make the arrangement and then we were set free to give it a try ourselves (with a little help). You can see the piece I made in last Sundays blog.
|This is the room where the lunchroom usually is. It is located in the former cow stable. Look at the stone wall, isn't it great!|

When we were ready coffee was served with yummy apple pie and we were able to do some shopping in the Christmas shop.
I had a lovely evening. There is one thing though! I did the workshop on my own which is not much fun. Next time I will attend it with a friend!
