White Peony Hoop Wreath – For your garden gate… or the bride?

I love the look of a beautiful hoop wreath adorned with fresh flowers – great for summer special event decor, but their life is short lived in the summer heat. I decided to work on creating the same look with high quality faux greenery and flowers. The challenge is creating the same airy look and […]

Layering it over a pair of antique […]
