Inspired by nature, this willow basket wreath will be your favorite accent for a springtime welcome. Featuring permanent stems of viburnum, blooming forsythia branches, and streptocarpus, and finished with cheerful ribbon, a butterfly pick, and a bird’s nest, this arrangement captures the sights of spring. Best of all, it requires no water and will last long through the season.
Ooh la la! Effortlessly chic by nature and elegant in approach, Parisian style sets the stage for a springtime rendezvous. French tulips, freesia, and pussy willow provide diverse color and soft texture. Variegated aspidistra leaves line the tall, stately vase, while bear grass and hanging amaranthus drape around its edges to give this grandiose arrangement a dramatic presence.
