Rocking around three candle trees floral art design

Christmas Eve in our home is a formal affair. Formal but comfortable: of the evening gown and barefoot variety.

Sugar frosted winter berries

We spend the largest part of the evening gathered around our glittering dinner table.

Crystals in the wire spiral

Feasting, opening presents and just enjoying the magnificence of all things Christmas.

Winter white and green Christmas design with muted red berries

And every year I think: This has been the most wonderful Christmas of all...

I dressed the wire spiral with Dendrobium orchids, alstroemeria, cymbidium orchids and lisianthus flowers

Every week I add a new design with related tutorials. Be sure to subscribe to receive an email notification with design inspiration.

This is my ongoing creative workbook to research and capture design projects and techniques. You will mostly find ideas for floral art but I will also include some other projects such as gift packaging, cards and even cake decorating with a few lifestyle projects arranged in between.

Everything you see in this workbook was designed, made and photographed by me, unless specific credit is given to another designer.
