Before choosing your wreath colours, it’s always worth considering how they’ll work with the colour of your door. You don’t have to have berries or dried oranges – pops of colour can be brought in through ribbon and natural, dried ingredients. You’re not limited to a choice of only traditional greens and reds. Take a look at these stunning alternative wreaths made by our members.

To ribbon, or not to ribbon? That is indeed the question!  Sometimes it’s fabulous to let the foliage do the talking on its own. Sometimes it’s great to add a zap of colour with an unexpected vibrant shade, or to echo a rustic vibe with the addition of a hessian trim.  Velvet always has a luxurious Christmassy feel and is very much in vogue at this time of year and it’s easy to see why.
