Earlier this week, a customer came by the shop in a bit of a panic. She was heading out of town to a wedding for dear young friends and had the great idea of gifting them with two small fresh wreaths. However, due to a mix-up, she was unable to get the wreaths designed in time from another business. Of course, I took on the challenge! 🙂 The idea was to create long lasting symbols of “love, happiness and joy” that could first adorn the pews and later attach to the chairs of the bride and groom.
These were so much fun to do! I combined a variety of fresh and permanent flowers and greenery. At the back, I wove a ribbon on which I had written the gift giver’s message to the bride and groom. The wreaths were picked up late Thursday and the customer happily headed on her way to the big event in Pennsylvania.
