A very festive welcome

Since it is now 1 December, it is without doubt acceptable to pull out the Christmas decorations. Even Isabelita’s Larder has had a festive makeover today. This is a simple wreath that I put together using 2 wreaths and some ribbon. I have used the ribbon in this way to avoid having to use nails to hang the wreath. If you are happy to use nails or already have a hook on the door which you can hang the wreath on then you can omit the ribbon or simply tie a bow on the wreath. I quite like using the ribbon to hang the wreath though as it gives the wreath an elegant and modern feel.

To make the wreath:

  • Place the smaller wreath on top of the larger one in the centre. Secure using a little bit of string or ribbon.
  • Then weave the larger piece of ribbon through the centre of the wreath and line up the edges so that they are straight.
  • Simply position the wreath over the door by tying the ribbon to the hook on the inside of the door or secure using tape.
  • Finally, straighten up the wreath and the ribbon.

There it is. A modern and simplistic festive wreath with a bit of sparkle. The perfect start to the Christmas season.

I am a food lover with a passion for cooking and entertaining inspired by two very special grandmothers and a fabulous mum. I recently moved to London which has provided a plethora of new places, cultures and fascinations to stir up some underlying creativity. My hope is to share some cooking and entertaining ideas which I like and others seem to like too. I will also throw in the odd bit of Scottish flare to make sure I maintain my true braveheart roots. Hope you enjoy!
