Instead of showing up with a store-bought bouquet of flowers for a gracious hostess this holiday, why not bring something fresh and unexpected: a fall wreath made with seasonal fruits and foliage.
Over on Style Me Pretty, floral designer Wild Folk Studio created this wreath using a wire wreath ring and a bundle of bouquet-like elements, from bay leaves and globe amaranth to persimmons and pink pepper berries. (If you live in the Southwest and other warm-weather locales, now is the time to forage pink pepper in the wild!)
Not only would this make a beautiful and meaningful gift for a friend's home, but you'll probably want to make one for your own home as well!
