Monograms are a very popular item this year in wreaths and design. Even though it was after Christmas he brought this wreath to show and discuss. The ribbon on the wreath has been very popular the last few years but in his opinion this trend will not be here to stay.
David likes to use three or four simple rustic buckets filled with fresh apples, a few thistles, and hypericum berries down the center of a table runner for an effective centerpiece.
In this arrangement done in two minutes all he did was put three white hydrangeas together and literally stick the roses in between the other blooms.
Added seeded eucalyptus that gave it such an elegant light and airy feel.
This arrangement started out with bamboo sticks attached to oasis for the base and also at the top. He attached branches to simulate palm trees for a centerpiece at an outdoor party. He stated the sky is the limit of how many embellishments you could add. Add moss to cover oasis still showing. The biggest tip that would work so easily was to pour grits all over the base to look like sand then scatter shells. He was so generous with ideas and tips for easy decorating. This is an inexpensive and easy idea to tuck away!
One of our members did this fresh arrangement from things in her yard for the food table. She is a very talented designer also. You may remember her beautiful garden here.
