Students Decorate Ightham Mote
A group of Level 3 Floristry students recently visited Ightham Mote for a day of garland making to decorate the buildings for their Christmas display.
As well as seasonal materials such as holly and ivy, the garlands also featured a range of festive treats including oranges (which symbolises prosperity and the hope of a brighter future), cloves and cinnamon; all traditional Christmas treats with a distinctly festive smell. The students decorated the buildings, courtyard and even the dog kennel!
Ightham Mote described the display as absolutely stunning, saying that our students had carried out a beautiful job and were so tidy. The Ightham Mote house team were very grateful and are now making the house ready for Christmas.
One student comment: “We enjoyed coming to Ightham Mote and making the garlands as part of their Christmas decorations for visitors to enjoy. It was a long day, but we got the garlands up with the help of the Ightham Mote team, and look forward to hearing what visitors think about them.”
