I have just arrived back from a wonderful weekend exhibiting at Toby's Garden Festival at Powderham Castle - what a fabulous event! As soon as I am unpacked and back in the workshop I will be listing some of the new Bluebell and Fern Friezes that were a hit with event visitors and a few new Wreaths in the popular Powder Blue colourway. I will also update my blog with some pics of the gorgeous setting we were lucky enough to spend the weekend in.
Thank you to all of you who have been visiting my shop, placing orders, and leaving such lovely reviews - I make each decoration individually with great attention to detail and your wonderful comments really are appreciated. If you are new here - 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.
Delivery is included in the price of my decos. 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 began to develop my first range of decorations - selling primarily at local events and online. 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.
I work primarily with sustainably produced Birch Wood and a gorgeous heavy grade Somerset Paper which is sourced locally from nearby St Cuthbert's Mill, City of Wells. I run my own laser cutters which are housed in an elegant (if slightly crumbling!) converted Victorian Brewery.
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.
I exhibit regularly at events around the South West and The Dales; my decorations have also been safely shipped and joyfully received all over the world. 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.
