Most of my customers wanted red or red-and-gold bows.
This one also requested white accents.
Another red-and-gold wreath. I always fill in the basic
balsam wreaths with all kinds of pine, fir, and
juniper sprays for a lush, varied effect.
This wreath is for the mother of a baby girl. She wanted pink!
Those flowers are fresh protea, I think. I used sprays of
eucalyptus, which has pinkish stems, gold-tinted pinecones,
and green berries. I tucked in tiny pearls for a girly touch.
Someone brought in a box of holly today! Thank heavens, supplies were
getting sparse. Gold pinecones, holly, and eucalyptus berries
(which smell like cat pee — for outdoor use only!) worked well
with these white-edged velvet bows.
A Christmasy plaid bow called for holly, pine sprays, gold pinecones, and tiny gold balls.
