the event: christmas

one of the most celebrated events of the year, christmas is a time of joyful gatherings; when we decorate our homes, workplace and public spaces. it is a feast for the senses. we eat, drink and surround ourselves with not only the people but also with the things that we love. it is a busy time for florists- making wreaths, garlands, table centre pieces, vase arrangements, custom made trees, selling gifts, wrapping presents, spreading joy! its a very special time.
