My mom knows how to throw a garden party! Every year at Easter, she has a fun project for the family to do and it usually involves the garden. This year, all the adults made Living Wreaths. We were each given a strong wire wreath frame, some moss and an assortment of plants to choose from. Then she set us free to create our own display.
The ONLY requirement was that you wear a cute garden hat. (Somehow, my brother got out of that one!) My mom provided the colored aprons and matching gloves. (How sweet was that?)
Here I am working away diligently (in pink), while my brother, my mom and my sister-in-law decide what plants to use in her wreath…You can tell that I was FOCUSED.
What was fun about this project was that each of our wreaths turned out differently. We all picked different plant combinations and they all looked fabulous.
Here is mine…
Here are L to R: Demitra, Sam, Carrie, Pattie and Jimmie.
And here is mine two weeks later on my front door. I haven’t killed it yet!
Next week, I am doing the same project at my house with some gardener friends. It should be a blast!
