Christmas Gifts & Decorations

We’re gearing up for Christmas at the Cottage Garden Flower Shop.  We have some lovely new gifts and decorations in from across Europe including Sweden and Germany.  A truly gorgeous selection of small to large gifts and beautifully crafted decorations.

We will also shortly be receiving our always popular light up Christmas Scenes from our German supplier and we’ll create a separate gallery when they’re ready for display.

As always we will be selling a selection of Christmas bits at the Totternhoe Christmas Fair which falls this year on 29th November and is well worth a visit.

Gorgeous Christmas Arrangements

Phew, it’s been a busy day today.  We’ve sent out all manner of items, gorgeous Christmas arrangements, luxurious, bespoke door rings, planted baskets, hand tieds, bouquets, hyacinth bulbs, the list goes on.  We’ve nearly sold out of holly wreaths and have a few pine rings left.  It would be nice to photograph everything that leaves the shop but there simply isn’t time.

However, here are a few Christmas arrangements that went out today:-

We have some lovely planted baskets with a mixture of bulbs, Christmas Cacti, cyclamen and poinsettias and more. We also have some lovely standard English grown cyclamen and poinsettias as well as our usual extensive selection of fresh cut flowers and gift ideas.

Totternhoe School Christmas Fair

Totternhoe School will be holding their annual Christmas Fair on 30th November between 2-4 PM. There are always lots of fun activities and competitions for the children such as Face Painting, Lucky Dip, Hook A Bag, Arts & Crafts and there are various stalls for the adults to browse.

We will have a stall and will be taking a selection of our Christmas gifts, decorations and plants along. Totternhoe school is only a 2 minute drive from Dunstable. Why not pop along for a couple of hours of fun and entertainment.

We’re All Christmas’d Up

We’ve finally had time to display the rest of our gorgeous Christmas goodies. We’ve got some really lovely bits this year, from cosy light up festive scenes, to pretty angels and cheeky Santas and snowmen. Wonderful gifts and decorations, reindeer, ribbons, marquees and lots more. Please pop in and have a browse.

Walking In A Winter Wonderland…

Our new Christmas stock is starting to arrive from Germany and we’ve begun creating our Christmas display.  We have some lovely new bits in this year including the very popular light up festive scenes and whilst not strictly Christmas related we also have some new stock of the hugely popular decorated bird houses.

We will continue to post pictures as new stock arrives.

Soon Be Christmas…

We’re eagerly awaiting our new delivery of Christmas gifts and decorations. We’ve tried in the past to resist putting them out too early, however last year we received a number of enquiries before we’d got around to putting bits on display.

We will have lots of the lovely bits that proved so popular last year and some new designs. As soon as they arrive we’ll post some pictures, for now here is a quick tour of the shop on a wet and windy October day.
