DIY – Pumpkin vase

Much to the amusement of my husband, I decided last weekend that I wanted to go pumpkin picking!

I dug out my wellies and we headed off to Mr Pumpkin 

Located just outside Derby, we visited on their official opening day (they are open from 21st – 31st October, subject to the availability of pumpkins) We arrived about 10:30am and the farm was already so busy!

CELFIE the Salon, Derby

I didn’t hesitate to book my place!

Having followed Fabulous Places on Instagram for a while now (I’m obsessed with their feed) I was intrugued to discover that they were holding a ‘School of Christmas’ in collaboration with Birds In The Attic

I booked to attend the first of three workshops on Sunday 27th November, held at Worth Brothers Wines in Kirk Langley. The description on their website said that it ‘offers a special opportunity to join us for an exclusive workshop covering all the elements of a fabulous Christmas… festive table decor, entertaining, gifting, home decor, drinks, canapes and gift wrapping’
