Make your own Christmas wreath at the Westin Dragonara’s wreath-making workshop

Together with Floreal, a flower shop in Naxxar, the Westin Dragonara Hotel is inviting the public to a festive and creative event. On November 30, transition into December at a wreath-making workshop!

Christmas wreaths are a popular custom in Western countries, and Western Christianity in particular. Their origins can be traced to 19th century Germany, as locals would gather evergreen branches and leaves to make garlands on Christmas Eve, then put candles between them in wait for Jesus’s arrival. Over time, it became common practice to hang wreaths on doors. The ring shape symbolises eternal hope and the immortality of mankind, while the garland is said to protect children from demons in the new year.

A handcrafted Christmas wreath on a door during the festive season appears inviting and warm. Wreath-making sessions have become a bit of a tradition themselves, and there’s plenty of benefits. For one thing, it’s cost-efficient, and your wreath will be unique but it’s custom made by you! It’s a better alternative to mass-produced wreaths which all look identical. Does anyone really want to have the same wreath as their next door neighbour hanging on their door?


That’s why Dragonara is holding this session, where attendees can learn the craft of wreath-making under the direction of instructors who know a thing or two about floral arrangements. They’ll be giving live demonstrations and answering all your questions, as you craft your own one-of-a-kind festive wreath with a variety of seasonal foliage, aromatic blossoms, and decorative accessories. The fun activity is a great way to show off your artistic flair and kick off the festive season.

This event will be taking place at 5:30 pm at The Snug, a cosy little venue inside the Westin Dragonara Resort in St Julian’s. Unlock your inner creativity and bring a loved one while you’re at it! It can make for a lovely bonding activity (or perhaps date icebreaker?). 

Partaking in this activity costs €60, which grants you entry, access to materials and tools, as well as a welcome flute of Prosecco. To purchase a ticket and/or book your place contact the resort via this email:
