Wreath Shopping

I have finally finished my Christmas shopping! I’m done!

I see this as a pretty good wreath-on to celebrate, don’t you?

But before popping the champagne, slipping into a huge jumper and settling into my spot beside the fire, under a heap of dogs, there was just one more task to tackle.

Picking up the Christmas wreath.

With the last of my gifts still weighing me down, I nipped over to Wild At Heart to collect one.

I have a sneaking suspicion that Wild at Heart may just be the prettiest flower shop in London, so I thought I’d blog the occasion!

Unable to resist the array of blossoms, I picked a Christmas bunch for the table too.

Helped along by the green fingered chaps who mind the stall.

(My questions tend to lean towards the “what’s in season and what wont I kill?” spectrum, rather than anything terribly technical or trend based!)

Pay the boys a visit and you can choose a ready made wreath, or have something special created.

A good old chin-wag comes free of charge!

And it gives you time to get your blog on, if you’re that way inclined.

After much deliberation I went for a classic, scented style.

And a festive bunch.

If you live in a flat and don’t want to hang a wreath outside, you can always pop it onto an internal door.

Throw the ribbons (which the boys will attach for you) over the top of the door and use drawing pins to pin them to the very top edge of the door. That way you wont ruin the paintwork and your flat will smell like Father Christmas’ sitting room!

Alternatively lay it flat on the table and place big, church candles in the middle for a cracking centre piece.

Camel Coat // Grey Jeans // Rainproof Riding Boots

Sugar Bag

Penguin Jumper

Even if you leaf it to the last minute, the boys will be around to help you out.

They’re very wreathonable like that.

And they laugh at my terrible dad jokes, so what’s not to love?!

There are a couple across London, find your closest online.

Not long to go before the big day… who’s excited?

  • I love the idea of using a wreath as a centerpiece! It looks like you do not mess around when it comes to Christmas shopping #those bags.

    Also, you must check out the Ariana Grande Christmas song. It’s not quite Mariah/classic status, but it will be in your head all day! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jnXxxKZ57Tw#t=166

  • Absolutely agree that it’s the prettiest flower shop around town! I also spotted the most perfect wreath from their Belgravia shop. XX

    Rosie, I love the way that you make the simplest of things (like wreath shopping) so fabulous! I’ve been coming to your blog for 3 years now and every post leaves me wanting to read more.

  • It’s crazy to think that there’s only four more days until Christmas!! Love the idea of decorating the inside of a flat with a Christmas wreath. The flowers you bought are beautiful as well!

  • Hey hey!! Did you finally recover your Sony camera? Or did you have to break down and get a new one? I’m so attached to mine, I would be shattered if I ever lost it.

    The wreaths are gorgeous. I went a little lazy this year and bought the reusable kind…still pretty though!

    I have wreath envy!! Time to get mine on the front door!

  • Interesting, did you ask them to take photos for your blog because last time we took photos in front of them, one of the guys made a fuss about shooting their store ? Otherwise the photos looks lovely

  • This brought back lovely memories as I used to live round the corner on Westbourne Grove, the most stunning flower shop in London and the turquoise tiles are perfect for shoots! Gorgeous, festive post! x

  • TheWestCoastExplorer

    That’s one lovely wreath. So original I love it. I wish we had them here in the USA !
    You looked as perfect as always. Such a classy lady.

    Who takes your pictures for the blog? Do you have a photographer that works with you?

    Would love to have my house smelling like Father Christmas. Clearly I need to get some fresh plants and spices.

    Also, how weird is it that I find the first flower guy sexy?? The neck tattoo and the eyeglasses… can’t say I’ve ever found neck tats appealing, but somehow it’s working for me a little!

  • I’d love to have a living Christmas wreath! They smell and look so lovely, maybe I’ll look into it next year. <3

  • I’ve always gone for an artificial wreath, but the real, natural ones look so much nicer and I bet they smell just as good, especially with those cinnamon sticks!

  • I agree, Wild At Heart are definitely the prettiest flower shop in London!
