Creating an alternative Christmas tree

Here’s how to create something different for your Christmas Tree.

I’ve started with cutting our Tree shapes from a MDF sheet and than place a square base of MDF at the base.

Using 40cm long natural branches screwed into the base as well as into the main cutout makes your tree stand upright perfectly.

After this I stapled a number of Christmas tree branches to the wooden form to cover it completely. The last job is to simply wrap your Christmas lights around your tree.

I’ve decided not to use any further decorations as I’ve used the cherry-bulb christmas lights.

Here’s some pictures of our Flower shop in Waterford, Ireland. We have used these trees for our window display as well as for different displays inside in our shop.

I hope you like this idea and gets you started with your own creative ideas.

Wishing you lots of fun and a Happy Christmas from all the team at

International Woman’s Day 8 March 2015

INTERNATIONAL WOMAN’S DAY

Sunday 8th of March 2015

INTERNATIONAL WOMAN'S DAY 2015
INTERNATIONAL WOMAN’S DAY 2015

History:

International Women’s Day (IWD), also called International Working Women’s Day, is celebrated on March 8 every year. In different regions the focus of the celebrations ranges from general celebration of respect, appreciation and love towards women to a celebration for women’s economic, political, and social achievements. Started as a Socialist political event, the holiday blended in the culture of many countries, primarily in Europe, including Russia. In some regions, the day lost its political flavor, and became simply an occasion for men to express their love for women in a way somewhat similar to a mixture of Mother’s Day and Valentine’s Day. In other regions, however, the political and human rights theme designated by the United Nations runs strong, and political and social awareness of the struggles of women worldwide are brought out and examined in a hopeful manner. This is a day which some people celebrate by wearing purple ribbons.

CELEBRATE WOMAN'S ACHIEVEMENTS - CALL FOR GREATER EQUALITY
CELEBRATE WOMAN’S ACHIEVEMENTS – CALL FOR GREATER EQUALITY

As actress Patricia Arquette pointed out during her Oscars acceptance speach earlier this year, there is still lots of work to be done for equality for Women.

In Ireland the celebrations of International Woman’s Day has grown significant over the past number of years. Much of this is due to the increasing amount of Eastern Europeans now calling Ireland their home. Men come into our flower shops to buy a bouquet or a single flower for all the women in their live: Partner, wife, mother, sister, daughter, work colleauge, etc. Celebrating the importance of these women in their life.

This tradition has been picked up by many Irish men as a gesture of recognition for the women in their life.

International Woman's Day is on 8th March.
