Alternatieve Advent wreath

Advent wreath with alternative green homemade baubles


Wreath of greens, and homemade baubles

A wreath is always in, but a wreath of nothing but greens is surely something very original.

Precisely because nothing else was used than greens, it is a tone on tone arrangement.

It was next to the green variety of materials chosen for convex shapes to accentuate, by tufts Hydrangea by bolmos and colored floral foam balls out there with a potato balls are removed maker.

A wreath can be flat on the table, but you can refine it a little on a glass dish to present, which gives more cachet.

We opted for homemade ornaments with colored floral foam.
