Wreath Making at Victorhill Farm

Before the farm is officially open for the upcoming holiday season, after the trees are all trimmed,we are busy making and decorating wreaths. My favorite part is the wonderful woodsy pine needle scent of wreath making that fills the whole shop! If only I could bottle it up to whiff the heady aroma all year long!
The first step in making a wreath is gathering boughs. Only the tips of branches are used.

Joe, getting into the holiday mood helping out by adding bows to wreaths. (Shhh, he doesn't know I posted this photo! He thinks it's girl's stuff to fluff up wreaths with bows and stuff.)

If you are unable to visit the farm during the holiday season to pick out your wreath, no worries you can have it shipped right to your door! Wreaths are located at my Blenda Studio Shop in a special Holiday Wreaths Section

Introducing Fresh Cut Flowers

New this year at Victorhill Farm, we planted lovely flowers all around the gift shop. We are so excited about how beautiful they all are that we just had to share them with you! So we have opened a little self serve flower stand out by the end of the drive. The flowers are organic and local, straight from our garden to your table. And the price is right too, a sweet bouquet is only $3...what a deal!

We'll keep the stand open as long as flowers keep blooming. By then it will be time for the holidays and all the excitement it brings. Erica and I are already planning a few new designs for Christmas wreaths, so stay tuned.
