”James has a command of garden and interior design.” —Southern Living
James T. Farmer III is all about the “elegant gardening lifestyle,” using the bounty from your landscape, cutting gardens, fruit trees and farmers markets to enrich your home and table. In this book, James inspires us with wreath creations for a grand entrance in any season, for the church altar, or for over the mantel.
Whether winding greenery onto a wreath form with your own hands and florist’s wire, or transforming a store-bought wreath, the secrets are in the garden (and the produce section of the market): roses, hydrangeas, citrus, berry bushes, complementary greens and herbs, fruits, vegetables and flowers in season. Here are ideas galore for making gorgeous wreaths for year-round and special festivities.
