Festive fun & non alcoholic mulled wine

What a fantastic festive season we have had so far, so much laughter, singing and floristry fun. Our workshops have been a great place for friends and family to meet and create some wonderful memories, wreaths, trees and arrangements.

Our delicious non-alcoholic mulled wine has been a big hit this year, so we thought we’d share our not so secret recipe with you, it’s a great one for parties and is super easy to make.……
