A little piece of Christmas!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year…. and we caught up with artisan florist and creator Caron McGuinness of Bloomin Wild, Brentwood. As an early Christmas present for our readers, they are offering 20% off their wreaths.
Hi Caron, You must be super busy in the run up to Christmas?
It's all go here! I'm surrounded by blue spruce and cinnamon. So excited for the busiest weekends of the year.
Where do you gain the inspiration for your pieces?
I love wild foliage and I gain my inspiration from Gunns florist in Brighton. He is a genius. Also the style of Tallulah Rose flowers in Bath.
What is your favourite bloom to use during the winter season?
This time of year is perfect for seasonal foliage. Pop a red velvet rose into the mix and it looks magical.
Any tips for easy to achieve beautiful centre pieces this Christmas?
Grab yourself some slim taper candles in cool colours, an oasis ring, flowers, accessories, then decorate till your heart content.
What makes a great Christmas for you and your family?
Getting an oversize tree that doesn't fit in our cottage and putting my feet up with my family with a sneaky glass of Baileys... or two.
What’s on your Christmas wish list?
I wish for everybody to have an amazing Christmas and that 2017 is Bloomin Wild for me. I'm still a kid at heart so I want lots of pressies under the Christmas tree.
