Eucalyptus wreath & garland (with a secret)


Eucalyptus on mantel with dried flowers

I am huge fan of eucalyptus for year round decorating.
From wreaths to garlands to sprays 
and even to simple sprigs in a vase.



There is something about greens for year round decorating 
and especially in winter when
there is a chill in the air and dreary skies all around.

A burst of fresh green color is perfect for warming up those winter whites
and adding the right charm to a room.

And the other day- a whole box of charming arrived.
But it was a box full of charming 
that also had a secret.

Those soft faded dusty greens
were hiding something.
Any guesses?

Okay, okay....
I'll let the secret out 
they are faux.

Faux as in... 
Faux. Fake. Not real. But pretty darn realistic.

Seriously- I was so impressed when they arrived.
The details are amazing and no allergy worries with these which is somewhat common
with the fresh and dried varieties.

The garland is small enough to be a perfect size for laying on the mantel or for stringing together 
with a few others to drape on a door.
And the wreath is a perfect petite size as well.
I will be sharing a couple ways to use this garland soon but 
and even better- both the wreath and garland are on a major sale right now.
You can find them here 
and the tea light screen here

I am over at the Las Vegas Market this week
and I will be sharing all kinds of trends and inspiration with you soon.

Hope your week is off to a great start!

  7. Bonjour chère amie,

    Lorsque je vivais dans le sud de la France, j'avais en face de ma propriété de très beaux eucalyptus avec ce feuillage bleuté et rond. J'en cueillais souvent des branches et j'agrémentais mes bouquets... L'idée d'une couronne est très bonne !
    Je vous souhaite plein de bonnes choses à Las Vegas.


    Gros bisous ♡
