HO! HO! HO! It’s holiday time!
To get into the holiday spirit, I like to organize a small get together with friends to create a beautiful, hand-decorated wreath – a morning with friends, a beautiful wreath for all to take home, and also a kick-off for my own holiday home decorating.
Bring your wreaths to life by adding any number of decorations, baubles, ribbons, fresh seasonal foliage from your garden, dried fruits and sparkly accessories.
After choosing a theme, assembling begins with the essential florist’s green wire to attach all the bits and bobs.
As the ideas start flowing, you’ll see your wreath begin to take shape.
To create bows out of your ribbon, start by wrapping the two curled over circles around each other – much like tying your shoelaces! Attach them by threading some florist’s wire through the back of your bow to the wreath.
Et Voilà! Attach a ribbon or wire if you want to hang this work of art to a door. If not, these can be used as a stunning, colorful and festive table centerpieces. Add a bowl with candles in the middle and there you have your own festive holiday wreath.
Don’t forget, this is just part of your Christmas decorations. The theme of your wreath can be carried throughout your home, from the dining room to your coffee table and chimneys. Don’t forget those unused glass vases – fill them with glittery baubles or seasonal pine cones, or – a great favorite of mine – white fairy lights. Very atmospheric!
Have fun and Bonne Fête!
