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.

The Gibson House Museum is the only house museum in Back Bay. Since 1957, it has told the story of the Gibson family’s daily life during the mid-nineteenth and early twentieth centuries through their everyday possessions, decorative objects, and furnishings. On Sunday, December 17, from 1 – 4, the house will be decorated for the holidays as it would have been decorated when the Gibsons were in residence. Light seasonal refreshments will be served. For more information visit www.thegibsonhouse.org.

The Garden Club of the Back Bay’s 2017 Wreath Week has concluded, and we are now resting, soaking our feet, bandaging our hands, and planning for 2018. For those new to this web site, we have a tradition of posting a Wreath of the Day feature each day from now through New Year’s Day, highlighting some of our beautiful creations, and sharing stories of the season. Remember that allows us to show you 24 wreaths out of the nearly 170 fully decorated wreaths created. We couldn’t be more proud of our decorators, and there are some designs which, if not published this month, will appear next fall as we gear up for the next sales season. We hope you enjoy and share with friends. We will start with a classic almost all natural wreath – but look closely and you’ll spot glittery twigs of rhinestones among the rose hips, cones, magnolia leaves, incense cedar, dried flowers and white pine.
