The beginning of December marks the official countdown to Christmas; come the 25th, we will have spent every spare lunch hour hunting for presents, been to twenty different festive dinners and drunk a whole lotta mulled wine in the process.
If you're looking for something a little less boozy/busy to take your mind off perpetual festive planning, why not get your creative juices flowing and sign up for a Christmas Wreath making class? There's something strangely therapeutic about creating your own wreath and will have you feeling the festive vibes in no time. Classes and workshops are incredibly popular so get booking now to avoid missing out.
