It just doesn’t feel like Christmas until the décor goes up. Whether you start decking the halls on Thanksgiving night or moments before holiday guests arrive, a wreath can be a simple statement that speaks volumes in the way of welcomes and glad tidings. This year, we asked floral designer and owner of Flowers & Home, Monroe Cranford, to share his take on a fresh holiday wreath. Designed with blue cedar, seeded eucalyptus, silver brunia, safari sunset, blue thistle, and red dogwood branches, his creation is accented with some of the season’s most-loved edibles, including clementines, red pears, and walnuts. How’s that for a natural way to usher in the season?
