As we edge closer to Christmas our weekends are filled with tree decorating, the occasional mulled wine and all things festive. For Tom Howley the season truly begins as soon as we unbox the decorations and hang a fresh wreath on the front door.
A beautiful wreath is always a welcome sight when arriving home, they remind us of all things cosy and Christmas acting as a great centrepiece to greet guests around this time of year.
Although traditionally hung on the front door, wreaths are not only limited to the outside.
