Twelve Magical Snaps of Christmas!

Looking for The Magical Christmas Wreath Company Shop?
 Click the Fairy on the right >>>>>

Its official, we are done for Christmas 2013. The magical workshop is being tidied and packed away and before we close the doors on another season I would just like to share a few random snapshots and Instagrams of what's been keeping us busy lately.


Mince Pies & Christmas Shopping: My kind of Fuel!


Sparkling Trees and Slinky Ribbons


Hand-feathered Wreaths and our asymmetric Handmade Garlands at Philip Treacy


More Christmas Shopping and a whole lot of wild wreathin'


The most gorgeous bows of all shapes, sizes, colours and textures.


We took orders from The USA to Dubai, from Ayrshire to The Isle of Wight and from friends old and new. We shipped our candles and bows worldwide and our fresh wreaths across Europe. 
We had the most fun season and now......
....our hands are in dire need of some Aesop Reverence Aromatique Hand Balm for Christmas please!

Ladies & Gentlemen I must officially call time......The Elves have now left the building!

    1. My dearest friend, I know Christmas in Tone on Tone Manor will be the most salubrious of affairs as always. Thank YOU for inspiring me on and off the blog. I designed some bay wreaths for a client this year and whilst creating them I had you in my thoughts. They were paired of course with some beautiful sage velvet ribbon that I am sure you would approve of. Merry Christmas Mr Loi! x

  3. Beautiful pictures, love the use of skimmia. Have never seen it on a wreath before.

    Hope you find yourself in the lap of luxury this holiday.

    Come on over, we'll get a mani pedi!

    1. I intend to sit on Santa's lap to ask for world peace this Christmas Jane but failing that I'll settle for some Aesop Hand balm, these Christmas wreath paws are in a sorry state! Merry Christmas! x

  4. You really are a hoot Paul! I love how you show us here what comes out of that magical workshop of yours..............and then off the orders fly around the world faster than Santa in his jet-powered sleigh! Love everything and, like you, my own small decorating projects with greens and berries, and now baking up a storm with hands in the dishwater, could definitely use the hand balm also! I'm off to get a manicure in the morning - that will help.

    Happiest of holidays - blessing for a beautiful Christmas and a fabulous New Year.
    Fondly - Mary

    1. Imagine my delight at our Dubai orders this year Mary First one came through then people started talking and we had a pile of orders before we knew it! I am planning my rounds this Christmas (after becoming absorbed by the workshop the past few weeks) so put the kettle on and we'll have a good old natter! Paul x

  6. A well deserved few days of rest must be in order Paul - have a very happy Christmas, and look forward to your reappearance in 2014. I have just this minute learnt that my family heading over from France for Christmas are stuck on a ferry which cannot anchor because of the storm!!!

  12. Hi Paul! Sounds like you've had a busy, productive, and (hopefully;) fun holiday season. I've decided that next year I will be mail ordering some of my greenery .. so I will contact you! I keep forgetting about you (sorry!) as you are off my radar. Feel free to contact me next November and I'm happy to mention you on my blog.

    Wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year ahead.
