Monogram Details: Floral WreathA wreath of blue hydrangeas framing one magnificent initial adorns a tree. The hydrangeas are inserted into a water-soaked, floral-foam wreath. For the initial, we threaded hyacinth blossoms onto pieces of floral wire -- one for each leg of the M, one for the center -- then twisted them together to form the letter; it's attached to the wreath with U-shaped pins.

Imaginative BouquetA winter wedding allows you to be festive, playful, and a bit unconventional. An imaginative bouquet for the season is this wreath made of deep-green boxwood, white roses, and waxflowers -- all hardy plants, available year-round. The pliable greenery and flowers are woven into a wire wreath form; then two ivory double-face satin ribbons are tied in bows.
5 of 12A dramatic display like this is sure to draw well-wishers to the guest book table. The vivid wreath packed with chartreuse santini mums and covered with tiny bows (secured with T pins) gives people something to admire as they pluck a colored pencil from the nearby cup to offer their sentiments to the bride and groom and sign their names.

Handheld WreathThe blue-gray of juniper boughs and deep green of arborvitae boldly replicate the cool colors of winter; the branches themselves determine the dramatic shape of the bouquet. Delicate, graceful snowdrops are tied onto the branches, tiny blossoms cascading as they would in nature.

Seating Card DisplayA wreath display for any season: Using our template, trace leaf shapes onto sturdy colored paper, and cut out. Trim edges with decorative paper edgers. Glue 22-gauge cloth-wrapped floral wire to the back of each leaf, and insert into a 14-inch-diameter boxwood wreath, in alphabetical order. A 14-inch wreath will hold about 60 cards. Use multiple wreaths or a larger one for more guests. Hang with ribbon.

Quilled BellsAs legend has it, wedding bells ring out to announce a brand-new union to the world -- and also to frighten away any evil spirits. These bells and the wreath of paper flowers that encircles them were made using the old-fashioned art of quilling, in which strips of paper are manipulated into intricate shapes.
