Spring Wreath!




Do you think if all of us think Spring, it will come faster? lol. All the snow and cold weather we had, then to warm up for the past week was a shocker! We enjoyed the snow, but then we were tired of it! Come on Spring! So here is just one of the arrangements that I have been working on. I love the trend that is taking place with the style of wreaths, so just had to try one. All my grapevine wreaths were the big chunky ones, so the solution, take the wire loose that is holding them together and make two or three out of one. Instead of covering the grapevine up, some of it needs to show. Then it is simple to add greenery and the flowers of your choice. In some floral design there are rules, like the rule of threes, and the one and half to two times the size of your containers just to name a few. But then there is just "if it looks right to me". Everyone has their own style. I have to say my favorite is European Design. I love the open airy, yet very traditional flowers and the containers they are put in. I leaned the very basics when I went to floral design in Memphis, then later on learned country style from a lady that gave lessons. From then on, it really was just developing my own style. Anyway, all that just to say, I am on a roll! I have a booth that I share with a friend and we have got a lot to do getting ready for Spring! Wooo Hooo! This wreath along with two other arrangements are already on display, now just hoping they will sell.
