Floral Wreath





I love floral and twiggy christmas wreaths and decided this year I would make my own!!!

Christmas at our home is not very traditional.... We have a chalk drawn christmas tree, a vintage sign with "merry christmas" handwritten by Simon, and a giant confetti systems style diamond by giant, i mean huuggeee.

This is why this wreath works so well in our home, for christmas time and will carry on all year round!

I love them for all occasions, including weddings, engagements, baby showers and other events, not just christmas!





This wreath used flowers from my garden, but next time I'll be using peonies, billy buttons and white hydrangeas (Stay tuned for pictures!!)

If you'd like a floral wreath made for your home or event, please contact me! info@ashdownandbee.com


Cool Christmas Tree Roundup

Christmas is a week away and living in a small apartment and being a prop stylist means we're starved for space in our place, especially for a once a year lush christmas tree! (P.S meanwhile, I'm totally jealous of Melinda's tree & xmas decos on Georgica Pond blog! ....hmmm maybe one day!)

This year Simon drew a christmas tree in chalk on a corner of our black painted apartment.  It is adorned with Murobond paint samples (which are conveniently bauble round shaped), and having it drawn on a corner means it almost looks 3D without taking up ANY space!

Here are some more cool ideas we may try next year...... 






































What does your tree look like this year?
