Festive Wreath-making Coffee Morning

Wreaths made by Ranches Ladies and flowers from The Gorgeous Flower Co. Dubai

On 13th December 2022, many Ranches Ladies enjoyed making their own unique festive wreath, with material and expert instruction from The Gorgeous Flower Co. Dubai. The beautiful wreaths are now adorning doors, walls and dining tables to bring festive cheer to homes.

Ranches Ladies wish to say a big thank you to all those who contributed to our Festive Wreath Coffee Morning Event:

The Gorgeous Flower Co. for organising the craft, Larte Restaurant in Studio One Hotel for hosting and refreshments. Also to Larte, Paintbox Hair Salon, Rags to Riches Restaurant and Spinneys for donating gift prizes.

One of our members, Niamh, has shared her experience of the event:

Ranches Ladies Festive Wreath Coffee Morning Event

Tuesday, 13th December 2022

Christmas is my favourite time of year!  And this time is no different but having just moved back to Dubai and resigning from my job after 27 years, I have to say I felt a bit lost, so joining Ranches Ladies could not have come at a better time for me. I had always heard of Ranches Ladies but had no clue really as to what it was all about, but it has been amazing. I have loved meeting so many wonderful ladies over the last few months, so what better way to start the Festive Season than with the Ranches Ladies. 

I don’t know about you, but I have always admired the beautiful wreaths you see in the shops here, but I had no idea how much work goes into making one!  So, when I saw the opportunity to learn how to make a Christmas Wreath, I jumped at the chance. I mean, how hard could it be?!  Well just say, I have a newfound respect for anyone who makes them! 

Tuesday morning, when we arrived, Larte had been transformed into a festive flower studio. There were 6 staff on hand from Gorgeous Flowers to help us at every stage with Sam and Caroline at the helm. It was amazing to see so many different varieties of freshly cut foliage, along with red berries, decorative dried oranges, cinnamon, lotus flowers, sticks, pine cones laid out on the tables for us to choose from. The eucalyptus was in high demand! But for me, it was the beautiful gold and silver sprayed leaves and gorgeous bows. Everyone’s wreaths were so different and so beautiful.


And to reward us all for our hard work, we were then ushered through to a small feast prepared by Chef Rajiv for LArte who specially prepared and baked Panatone and Lemon Torte (specially made with Almond flour) and Chocolate and walnut Brownies.  And we also had beautiful Mince pies from Spinneys. Teas and coffee and treat replenishments were served by attentive Larte staff                                                                                                                                                                            
We were surprised with an unexpected raffle of donated gift prizes from Studio One hotel, Gorgeous Flowers, Paintbox (Hair Ladies Salon, located nearby in Arjan) and also recently opened Rags to Riches Restaurant. I didn’t win anything sadly but left a very happy girl with my beautiful wreath and a lovely little token party bag of mince pies donated by Spinneys.

                                                                                                                                                                   
Wishing everyone a fabulous New Year and looking forward to making the wreaths again next year!


Warm regards Niamh
