MADE WITH FRESH FOLIAGE FROM THE garden or HAND-SELECTED FLORIST blooms, A SEASONAL WREATH To WELCOME GUESTS IS A Wonderful FAMILY TRADITION
Make your own festive wreath
a beautiful wreath is one of the best ways to brighten your front door. the tradition is believed to date back to ancient greek and roman times, when handmade rings of fresh leaves, fruit and flowers symbolised eternal life. Wreaths are also associated with other cultural ceremonies, including harvest and memorials, but they’re now most often used to adorn our entranceways during the festive season. Whether you select fresh or faux foliage, part of the joy of wreathmaking lies in creating something that represents you and your family. Have fun with foraged berries, leaves and pinecones from the garden for a wreath brimming with victorian charm, or create a truly unique design by giving country materials a modern makeover.
