The Festive season is upon us and I am so excited to spend this special time with family and friends!
We are hosting a Xmas lunch with friends at our place this coming weekend, so I have the pleasure of setting up the festive lunch table.
When I attended Kamers in Stellenbosch last month, I fell in love with the dried wreaths on exhibition from JM Floral Design. I didn’t know how long it would last before it totally dried out, but thankfully it lasted and still looks great in time for our lunch.
I was excited about decorating it and thought of a few ideas. I searched Pinterest and Youtube and I got a few ideas but when I walked past the recently opened Lindt store in Canal Walk, a lightbulb went off!
I thought adding some chocolate decadence to the traditional wreath would be a nice treat.
Alyssa was very eager to help me and I think it may have something to do with the Chocolate!
How Did I Make It?
- Ready made wreath ( Or you could buy a wire wreath frame/ wire and make up your own frame & add some foliage)
- 15 -20 Lindor Milk Chocolate Truffles (I used 15 on the wreath, my assistant ate the rest 🙂 )
- Red ribbon
- Pair of Scissors
- Festive decor – mini pine cones, sprayed dried roses and balls (you could also use some tinsel, ribbon or any other festive decorations)
- Super Glue and/or wire to secure decor
- Lay all materials on a large flat surface
- Cut pieces of ribbon and tie on ends of chocolate balls
- Add the decor using wire or superglue spacing as you prefer
- In between the decor, add all of the Lindt Balls with a dot of superglue,
- And that’s it!
I’m still not sure whether I will be hanging the wreath on the door to welcome guests to our home, or whether I’m going to use it as a center -piece on the lunch table! If I do decide to hang it I will just use some bright thick red ribbon for the hanging piece.
Either way, I think it will add a cheerful sweet twist to the Day!
I hope I’ve inspired you to get creative this festive season!
