Wreath of the Day – Don’t Forget Hanukkah

We love celebrating all the winter holidays, and we do many “non-specific” wreaths with a winter theme, or a gilded look, but some of our most successful stress the blue and silver of Hanukkah.  The work below symbolizes the holiday of lights very well.

Wreath of the Day – Carnival Glass

We store some of our leftover supplies from year to year at our storage unit in Brighton – primarily extra ribbon, wire, tools, easels, tables, and picks. For a while, we had an oversupply of glass balls in a variety of hues. Glass balls can be useful when a shot of color is needed in a wreath, but because we are mostly known for our natural decorations, we use them sparingly.  A buying moratorium was called on glass balls in 2017, which we complied with until we spotted the new carnival glass balls, and also an iridescent peridot color which we felt we couldn’t live without.  Once again we stored our extra glass ornaments, but we are happy to continue exploring new materials in our designs.  Below is a wreath which incorporated the carnival glass balls in a design for a customer who will hang the wreath on her Victorian home.

Wreath of the Day – Sharpest Knife in the Drawer

During wreath making, we cut ribbon, we cut wire, we cut branches, we trim dried materials – we clip and snip at a furious pace, and by the end of the week our tools are dull and pitted. This season, wonderful neighbors Jim and Jennifer Hill, who own the fabulous KitchenWares by Blackstones store at 215 Newbury Street, played Santa and delivered over gift certificates for free sharpening. Because our tools were in storage and not accessible until just before we started, we decided to take advantage of this kindness at the end of the week, so that next year we will begin the season with the sharpest tools available.  We encourage you to visit https://www.kitchenwaresboston.com/ or, if you stop in for holiday shopping, take a moment to thank them for their generosity. Their sister store is Blackstone’s of Beacon Hill, another spot we highly recommend. The wreath pictured below, with its abundance of lotus pods, pine cones, milkweed and peony pods, and other more exotic dried materials, would not be possible without good clippers.

Wreath of the Day – Trouble in Tahiti

Our volunteers are the backbone of this project, and when one of our volunteers goes AWOL, we are not amused. This year Maureen O’Hara, a star delivery coordinator, salesperson, and site manager, was given the opportunity to go to Tahiti during wreath week.  What is the world coming to? In honor of her trip (which we hope never ever happens again in December) we showcase an orchid-filled chartreuse wreath which to us symbolizes a tropical holiday.

Wreath of the Day – Flower Exchange Moves to Chelsea

One thing is certain during wreath week – we run out of supplies. No matter how organized we try to be, there will be some item – picks for attaching, white pine boughs for augmenting – that must be acquired, and in the past, running down to Albany Street wasn’t a big deal.  When the Boston Flower Exchange left the city to establish new headquarters in Chelsea, however, that quick errand became a 45 minute drive in heavy traffic. Co-chair Margaret Pokorny is to be commended for minimizing the need to make the trek, but she still found herself on the road on a number of occasions this past week. The wreath below shows some of the varied greens we use in our wreaths, much of which comes from our friend Pat Riccardi at the Boston Flower Exchange.
