Christmas Workshop

04 December 2012| ,

Last week Wednesday, I was lucky enough to attend a Christmas workshop by Shauna Neill
(see invite here)

Shauna often hosts open days and workshops at her home.
Her open days are always filled with wonderful goodies from kids clothing and toys to ladies clothing, accessories, shoes and bikinis to home decor items and during the festive season, all things Christmas.

This festive workshop included different ways to decorate your Christmas and New Year table, gorgeous food presentation, easy peasy DIY decorations and beautiful gift wrapping.
