The cottage is being decorated for Christmas this week. I try to only use natural materials found on the farm. For the Holly wreath, this year I found some lovely white/green holly (not sure what its called) and mixed in some ivy. There are no berries on the Holly so I have added some pine cones.
A Yule Log is an old tradition which the old farmer would have had in the cottage many years ago. There are lots of reeds in the ponds as well so, with them, some holly and ivy I have added some small arrangements around the living rooms. We have created some small notes for each of these creations which are interesting for all visitors especially the children. If anyone has any other ideas for Christmas decorations, let me know!
