Protea Wreaths // Change and Hope Year Round

  We are excited to announce that our beloved South African flowering Protea wreaths will now be available year round...daily. Because they are so versatile alive and dry, we believe our clients will be given so many opportunities to decorate, gift, and repurpose the wreaths. Representing change and hope, these are an unmistaken nod to each day and season. Every day is new.  Live, dry, spray painted, cold, hot, day, night, hand painted, in a vase, without a vase, in a wreath, on a door, on a wall...again, hope for all situations.    (Here is a selection of Protea flowers on Sunset Magazine's site...enjoy.) Come in and ask any member of the team about options and care.  x Teresa

If the mother ate smaller,...
