Handpainted Birchwood Flowers and Beautiful Seasonal Decorations Designed & Made in Somerset U.K.

Welcome! I hope you enjoy browsing my Hand Painted Birchwood Flowers and Seasonal Decorations which are all designed, laser cut, and hand painted by me here in my Somerset workshop.

I use responsibly sourced FSC certified Finnish Birchwood and low VOC paints; my paper cut cards are made with Somerset Paper produced locally just a few miles away at St Cuthbert's Mill, City of Wells. The packaging I use is recycled or fully recyclable - your order will arrive attractively presented in a flat pack format, secured with brown paper tape on recycled cardboard and tissue wrapped ready to gift (or to keep!)
I can also include a beautifully hand written gift tag at no extra charge, please just let me know when placing your order that it is a gift so that I can prepare it accordingly for the recipient - thank you.

I am enjoying getting out and about to live events again; if you are local please come and say hello (I post information regularly on my Instagram and Facebook pages, please join us - we are a lovely friendly community) @nattydeco

Meet the Maker

I am a Yorkshire girl (born on Ilkley Moor) but have been navigating my way around the South West of England for the past 20 - 30 years and have returned to live in the beautiful county of Somerset which I am delighted to call my home. I divide my time between here and The Yorkshire Dales where some of you may have met me out and about at events.

I have a background in the Arts and while studying for an MA Design: Fashion Textiles I  developed my first range of seasonal decorations. I began making Birchwood flowers when RHS Rosemoor and The Bishop's Palace, City of Wells contacted me with invitations to produce work for their annual Snowdrop Festivals; I have been making and selling Birchwood Flowers and Somerset Paper Flower Cards ever since and love adapting and evolving my range through the seasons. I am an RHS member and as both pattern designer and lover of plants and gardens, working with flower and foliage motifs is an absolute joy. 

Through paying great attention to detail and finish each decoration is designed and made to last for many years - I endeavour to make beautiful and affordable pieces with lasting charm. Each decoration is cut and finished by myself - occasionally having a little help with painting and packing at busy times such as Christmas, Natty Deco is just me and I do hope you are able to share the delight I find in making and exhibiting my own work.

Thank you for your interest - please do get in touch if you wish to visit me at an event or here in my Somerset workshop.
