We are cracking on with these Autumn posts, aren't we?
The gorgeous autumn new build.
And now the big reveal!
All gearing up for the
Fall In Love link party
on Wednesday 5th October.
What will you link up?
I usually save my wreath-making for Christmas
but I've really enjoyed putting together a simpler version for Autumn.
I purposefully didn't tell you the names of the plants I've used because I wanted you not to feel fixed in your choices. You may well not have the plants I have in my garden, or in your local hedgerows. But I bet that somewhere near you, there are gorgeous plants for the taking.
All you truly need to add to your base for a simple wreath like this
is a layer of greenery and a layer of berrification.
The excellent thing about 'real' wreaths is that as bits droop (as they will), you can just replace them. If leaves gradually brown, you can pull them off.
It's the only way to keep them looking fresh and beautiful.
I love the deep red of the berries, rubily shiny and plumptious.
Now then, the weather here is simply crying out for a bit of an Autumn outfit....I'll be sharing one of my favourites on Friday.
I'm linking to my favourite parties, including:
