Promenade rue de Montreuil V


Not only does this lovely delicatessen shop in Montreuil sell wonderful food, the owner also teaches you how to make Advent wreaths!

Non seulement cette chouette épicerie vend des produits de qualité, mais en plus elle propose des cours pour faire des couronnes de l'Avent !

c'est marrant je suis plus tente par les produits que par les cours ;o))

Oh, I wonder how long those shutters have been there, that gold lettering is exquisite!

A very creative Advent wreath, the orange slices take it over the top.

Regina K said...

That is a nice wreath. The outside does not lead one to believe there is such a nice wreath inside..

Scott said...

What a beautiful and quaint little place. Love their wreath.

Jack said...

The wreath is pretty. I don't remember seeing sliced oranges used to decorate a wreath before.

Bob Crowe said...

It works, as long as oranges have a sacred significance for you. The Hand On The Hat? Is that equivalent to the English expression a tip of the hat?

Randy said...

That wreath is just wonderful. I would love to have it.

Sharing is the most wonderful gift, the shop owner deserves to be respected !!!

@ Jack: very common to use dried oranges, especially in Germany and Scandinavian countries.

@ Randy: easy! All you need is fir tree branches, cinnamon sticks and dried orange (it takes 5 hours in the oven to dry the slices)...

on goute en même temps qu'on confectionne la couronne

On trouve vraiment des cours de tout et n'importe quoi !

Christmas is in the air! I love this kind of decorations - ok, I love all kind of Christmas decorations - must be this child in me:)
Have a nice day, Ciel:)

Lowell said...

A rather unassuming exterior but it must be nice inside with all the kinds of things you like. I'm not much on Advent wreaths although I'd probably like many of the delicatessen delicacies!

SRQ said...

Great idea! Very pretty wreath.

Small City Scenes said...

Very nice wreath. We always had an Advent house with many windows to open every day. MB

J’ai toujours aimé les vitrines de Noel. Celle-ci est jolie et c’est sympa de proposer ces cours de couronnes. ;)

J'ai utilisé des oranges l'année dernière pour ma deco, ça avait super bien rendu!et ça sent bon.. Tu as été suivre les coiurs.

I am loving all the holiday DIY projects lately! An Advent wreath sounds fabulous, especially if that's dried oranges and cinnamon on it :D

Thérèse said...

Le nom du magasin est bien amusant. On aimerait en savoir l'origine.
Notre rendez-vous annuel entre amies pour deco de Noel me manque deja. Il faudra m'y faire, creer un nouveau groupe ou trouver des billets d'avion vraiment peu chers.

Funny name, nice wreath!

Thirtytwo degrees said...

Exquisite! Traditions of Christmas are wonderful to see photographed so well.

EG Wow said...

I like the advent wreath very much and would LOVE to know how to make one. Wish I lived closer!

Stephanie said...

What a unique wreath. I love the cinnamon & orange idea. 5 hrs in oven? I might make a few for my tree with the kids! Thanks for the inspiration!
