Wreath of the Day – Wild and Edgy

One of our most loyal volunteers, a very accomplished floral designer, has for years declined to decorate, preferring instead to organize materials, sweep the floor, and generally make herself useful in any number of other ways.  We always knew we were losing a valuable asset, but no amount of cajoling was effective, until this year, when the combination of being oversold and pressed for time, along with the appearance of this fabulous acid green ribbon and peacock feather accessories, convinced her to try her hand.  The result (one of a matched pair, shown below) was so spectacular that one of the project co-chairs switched the tags so these could go home with her.  The original client was sent an equally beautiful, but perhaps not so inventive, pair of wreaths.
