I’ve wanted to join in with Littlegreenshed’s Nature In The Home series for so long, but somehow have never quite got my act together. A quiet home-based weekend gave me the opportunity to have a go at this week’s challenge – a Christmas table centrepiece. I haven’t been very well, so going out to forage for something beautiful or popping to the florist wasn’t really an option – instead I made do with what we had to hand, grabbing my secateurs and heading into the garden to snip a few twigs.
Our Christmas tree and decorations won’t be up for another week yet (although my IG feed is full of beautiful, sparkling trees, I’m sticking to my guns and not putting our tree up until we’re past the middle of the month), but I felt the twigs needed a bit of a festive touch, so I opted for some simple white stars.
The fact there’s now a small nod to Christmas on our kitchen table has cheered me up, and I think a few more jars of twigs will be appearing around our house over the next week while I gear up for the explosion of decorations next weekend.
