Wreath of the Day – Advent Purple

We generally don’t disclose names of clients, but in this case the client’s identity is key to understanding the design.  King’s Chapel maintains administrative offices on Beacon Street, and wished to hang a matched pair of wreaths with an Advent purple color theme.  We purchase many burgundy ribbons in preparation for wreath week, but our supply of purple was, bluntly, non-existent.  A trip to Jacobson’s Supply on Albany Street yielded this purple and green ribbon, which was either going to be wildly successful or just plain awful.  Our mother and daughter team of designers accented the wreaths with juniper, white pine, gold painted lotus pods, pine cones, and pomegranates, and tucked in sprigs of purple eucalyptus to tie in the purple color.  Wildly successful, definitely.
