Wreaths can be holiday-themed or non-holiday themed, must be artificial, and can incorporate coupons to a restaurant or business.

Decorating Tips

– We provide standard wreath hangars, wreaths must fit on these.

– Artists provide wreaths, all decorations and any gift certificates

– Must be artificial. No live decorations.

– Be creative, be flamboyant, be fabulous! Make a statement; your wreath can tell

a story or express a feeling.

– Lights! Electricity is available; battery operated is also a good option.

– It is recommended that you wire all of your decorations to the wreath. In order to preserve yourgorgeous design and hard work, you’ll should wire each decoration to the wreath so it won’t fall off in transport once it’s purchased. We recommend using floral wire.

-Decorations can be purchased or hand made.
