Tablescape shot by Chris Court on the Croquet Lawn at Glenmore, early spring….
I am delighted that my first new-look newsletter is to announce a Workshop Collaboration with SIBELLA COURT & THE SOCIETY INC, to be held at GLENMORE on SUNDAY 27 NOVEMBER.
This is how The Society Inc describe their vision for the day:
‘Embrace our gorgeous summer weather by decorating your Christmas table with what nature & the garden have to offer. Follow Sibella on a spontaneous jaunt through Mickey’s garden, choosing & picking tendrils, leafy greens, flowers, branches & anything else that takes your fancy’. (Gosh – I hope I have a garden left!!). Sibella will then translate them into decorating & table-setting ideas that can be used throughout summer & for your Christmas table’…….
The programme for the day will be as follows:
10.30am Arrival & Morning Tea in The Dairy (Mickey’s homemade cakes!)
10.45am Short introduction by Sibella & Mickey outlining the day’s programme
11.00am Chat with Mickey about the garden at Glenmore (& I’ll be on tap for the rest of the day of course….)
11.30am Garden Wander (for participants to familiarise themselves with the surroundings….& to gather with Sibella.
12 noon Workshop with Sibella in The Hayshed.
1.30pm Time for lunch: A Teacup of Chilled Beetroot Soup & Garden Herbs, Cucumber Sandwiches, a glass of Rhubarb Syllabub (& jugs of home made Elderflower Cordial) – in the Loggia, picnic on the grass or under the trees…..
