I hope you had a lovely weekend. With less than ten weeks until Christmas Day, if you’re looking for floristry inspiration or starting to think about special gifts and treats for the festive period, the Spirit of Christmas Fair is the perfect place to visit. It’s taking place from November 4th-9th at Olympia in London.
My favourite part of the fair is the floristry workshops which take place each day…
