I missed Sarah Puckett on Kirstie’s Handmade Christmas on C4 but loved the pictures she sent over. I don’t think I’ll be making garlands of romanesco any time soon, but I loved her decoration made entirely of vegetables.
Sarah won a place on the programme out of 6,000 applicants for the ‘decorate a tree’ competition and was invited to Blenheim Palace to take part in the programme.
“Although my tree didn’ t win the competition I had a fabulous time and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I was really pleased that I held my own against the other ladies, who were stylists and designers, but I couldn’t have done it without the support of my superb suppliers; Busy Lizzies Flowers, Loves Greengrocers, Wolds Way Lavender and ‘Christmas Minion’ Jennie Palmer from Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil.
Sarah began making handmade pickles and chutneys in her kitchen in Heworth in 2012, and this year picked up the Taste of Yorkshire category at the White Rose Awards.
