With the holidays upon us, it is the perfect time of year to find great ways to use the beauty that nature offers us inside and outside. Fresh evergreen wreaths are a quick way to a bountiful centerpiece for Thanksgiving that can quickly transition to Christmas with just a few simple changes. The mix of citrus and apple scents with evergreens are a unique and easy way to put together a simple, but unique centerpiece and accenting with silver Brunia and silver candles adds that extra elegant touch. Metallics are a definite win this year and blending them with natural textures amplifies the festive feel of the decor.
It is easy to get caught up in all the hectic preparations for the holidays, but with a few twigs, some magnolia branches and a nice wreath, you can quickly transform that unsightly pot of dead plants on your front porch to an inviting winter arrangements to greet guests. Of course, if you can’t get to that, you can always count on our Garden Center or Park Place location to have gorgeous porch pots to transform your entryway!
For a simple wreath centerpiece, select a fresh evergreen wreath that fits your table. Use Wilt Stop to keep the wreath looking fresh through the season. Place the wreath on a plate or tray to protect your furniture. Using wood picks, spear a variety of fruits such as lemons, oranges, apples of all colors, pears, or clusters of grapes leaving a good portion of the pick extending from the fruit. Insert the other end of the pick through the greenery in the wreath and arrange the greens to cover the pick as needed. Set a collection of candles in the center and enjoy. When you are ready to change to a Christmas look, simply exchange the fruit for ornaments and pine cones. Add some ribbon if you like and you are done.
