Although it might feel a little early to be thinking of Christmas, you know how quickly the festive season creeps up on us! With that in mind, we’ve released some dates for our winter wreath design workshops so that you can plan ahead and get yourself booked in early to avoid any disappointment (places fill up fast!). As a local Sheffield florist, it’s great to be able to share our passion for flowers with the community, and bring groups of lovely people together to make exquisite festive wreaths.
Wreaths can really bring your home alive in the winter; in the darkest of months they bring colour, joy, and festive spirit with a gorgeous blend of seasonal foliage and accessories, perfect for your door or living room. We supply a selection of flowers from our Sheffield flower shop, and share expertise on the best techniques to make a beautiful wreath. It’s always such a joyous and festive activity; which is why we are holding no less than 5 classes throughout November and December for you to enjoy at our flower shop in Sheffield.
The Origin of Christmas Wreaths
Although ornamental wreath arrangements can be hung up in the home at any time of year, the traditional Christmas wreath is undeniably a universal symbol of the festive season. Wreaths can be traditional of contemporary, and made out of almost anything! Christmas wreaths often feature fresh greenery such as pine, ivy, and holly, and seasonal flowers and berries for a splash of colour. The word “wreath” originally comes from the Old English word “writhan” which means “to twist,” and have been made by a variety of different cultures over the centuries.
Probably the most familiar type of wreath is those connected with Christmas and Christianity. The circular shape of a wreath is thought to symbolise the unending love of God, and the idea of eternal life. For lots of people, however, wreaths are simply a lovely, festive way to decorate the home over the holiday season, and it’s easy to see why.
