Christmas Wreath and Table decoration workshop










Christmas is coming and what could be nicer than to spend a day creating a beautiful Christmas wreath to decorate your front door and a table decoration to compliment your Christmas meal.
You will use fresh seasonal foliage which will be provided on the day – no previous knowledge is required just a love of nature and a few essential items. Please wear practical clothes and bring an apron, any Christmas decorations you may want to use and a pair of secateurs if you own them.
With guidance from a qualified florist to lead you through every step your home will be beautifully decorated for the festive season.

Course Content.
The course tutor will provide instruction on how to make a traditional base using a wire frame and by securing natural moss on which to build using the natural foliage for greening up. Pine cones, ribbon and Christmas baubles can also be used to personalise your wreath.
After a break for lunch prepared at the venue there will be the opportunity to create a seasonal table decoration featuring a candle. At the end of the day you will have achieved two beautiful items and learnt a new skill which you can use each year.

As well as lunch, tea and coffee will be provided in the morning and in the afternoon with a mince pie.
The cost of the workshop to include all materials, refreshment and lunch is £80. Please note we have a maximum capacity of 6 people.

The shocking images of the 5 mile radius of floating plastic litter in the Caribbean Sea both saddened and maddened me whilst making me feel guilty about what mankind is doing to our lovely planet.

As I live near the sea and have a crazy Labrador cross Springer Spaniel I am often found on the beach - not starring out to sea but head bent either picking up litter or picking up beautiful sea glass.  The sea glass I keep and recycle into art; the rubbish goes straight into the nearest council bin or recycling container.

Manufacturers are slowly adjusting their practices which means reducing their use of  plastic packaging which is good news but it did make me think hotels/guest houses/b&b's should also get their act together to be more environmentally friendly.

So.... at my guest house www.buckingh…

7 Things to do in Torquay during June

Its nearly June!  In our 13 years running our bed and breakfast in Torquay we have found June to be a really good month in which to visit this area, the weather is normally beautiful and there are events happening which can be enjoyed without the crowds that July and August brings.

There's always something happening on the  English Riviera and with that in mind I have handpicked 7 activities to enjoy during June here in Torquay and further afield.


1. Torbay Air Show 1st and 2nd June
Back for its third year in Torbay, the airshow has certainly grown in popularity bringing in excess of 165,000 spectators to the Bay of Torquay, Paignton and Brixham.

Including the Red Arrows.  Or sit in one of the many cafes and bars to watch the live show! We have a couple of rooms still available and as we are only an 8 minute walk from the seafront y…
