Finished Wreath

Sol, I have shared the recipe, such as it is, for the nut roast plait in my reply to your comment. 

I finished the wreath last night and I'm really happy with it. I decided to keep it simple so just added a few flowers and left it at that. It's a really dark morning so probably not the best time to photograph things but here it is.




Food stretching is now in full swing, I did think we'd scoff all the nut roast yesterday but it was really filling so we're having Monday night roast, hooray!

This morning I've rearranged the kitchen cupboards and cleaned the oven (yes, I got up early!) and I'm going to make a start on some batch cooking after another cup of tea.

  1. Lovely, lovely wreath. You've done a really neat job. I bet you feel really good for tidying the cupboards. I know I always do. Enjoy your cooking. X

    1. Thank you, that's what I thought, as it's not a centrepiece it's just one item to decorate the shop I didn't want it to be too much.

  3. The wreath is beautiful, I love its simplicity. Stunning. There is an oven that needs cleaning here if you want to pop around, I keep putting it off. I think TODAY is the day.

    1. I fear dealing with me and my diva-like demands would outweigh the benefit of having a clean oven!

      Thank you for your kind words about the wreath.

    1. Thank you, I think I want to make one for myself now I've finished this, I'm going to take it into the shop today so I don't decide to keep it!

  5. That is SO pretty. I threw away my old dilapidated wreath when we moved - now I am considering making a lovely fabric one like yours.

    1. Thank you. I actually fixed everything on with pins, so anything too festive could be easily swapped for something less Christmassy. Good idea to use it for more than one period.

  7. This is really pretty! I'm a big fan of seasonal wreaths but they're usually expensive unless Christmas ones, so I was pleased to find a cute autumnal one in Waitrose amongst the Halloween items. It's not spooky themed, so will be perfect for September right through to the end of November xx

    1. Thank you, I always say I want a wreath but won't pay the crazy prices for them and have never made one until now. Of course, now I want to keep this one!

      Well spotted on your Waitrose wreath, I am really warming to the idea of having something to take me through a whole season.
