As the months roll on and the nights draw in, Christmas and the festive season is approaching….

This year I’m offering festive swags to decorate your front door. They are made from Cumbrian grown greenery, decorated with dried goodies harvested and saved from the garden, with handmade copper stars for a bit of extra festive sparkle. The top is tied with a plush velvet bow in a choice of gold, red or rich brown. There is a string loop to hang it with. 

I’m not using wreath frames for them; I believe that the less moss harvested and the less “stuff” used the better. The easier to compost and reuse afterwards, the happier I’ll be!

Preorder here….

However, if a wreath is what you’re after, I am selling wreath kits (free local delivery), and if you call in to see me at the Kirkby Stephen Christmas fair, I will have ready mossed wreath frames available to buy. 

On that note, if you’re present shopping, the Kirkby Stephen Christmas fair will be held in the Masonic Hall on the weekend of 26th -27th November. Hopefully this one won’t coincide with a major storm like last year!

I will be there with wreath kits, dried flower wreaths, and taking pre orders for festive swags. 

If you’re looking for a special present to give, I’m offering 6 month flower subscription to start in 2023. You can also now buy E-gift vouchers to spend with Clodhopper Blooms, starting at £15 – that is the price of my smallest locally delivered bouquet.

So, fingers crossed for a happy storm free festive fun Christmas fair! If you sign up to my newsletter you will receive a reminder and details of timing etc shortly. Look forward to seeing you!

PS…..If you’re ordering Christmas swags etc please may I have your order by Wednesday 14th December as the final delivery will be made on Friday 16th December. Thank you!
