boxwood wreaths

Beautiful boxwoods seem to be calling my name.
I found this one here at Boxwoods.
How darling would they be hung on the backs of chairs or at each place setting for a festive dinner.
I adore a classic preserved boxwood wreath.
  A friend told me she had bought one for her door.
I admire boxwood topiaries, wreaths and garlands.
What sort of wreath do you hang?

love a boxwood wreath myself. I have one on my front door and it's flanked by triple ball boxwood topiary trees. I love the way my front door looks this time of year!

I love your painting! We have 2 front doors, so one will be "real", and the other my son and I got last year at the hardware store. He loves it because it lights up, and so I will dutifully hang it up!

I have a mixed boxwood and pine this year but boxwoods are my favorite!!

I love boxwoods - there is something so light and happy about them. And I love the idea using them to deck the backs of chairs. How pretty that would be. This year I have simple pine wreaths that Pam brought into Red Ticking. They are handmade, each one is slightly different and they have the sweetest little pine cones on them - not glued on, but part of the branches. They are lovely!
Love your pretty illustration! XO

Beautiful boxwood wreaths! I can only imagine how tiny the first one must be in relation to the leaf size! Our wreath this year is boxwood too... I removed the bow that came with it, added my own ribbon, magnolia and holly from our yard, and silver bells I had from past years. We have boxwood growing by the front door, so I'll usually add some sprigs of that too, if the wreath is not boxwood. Sometimes I am able to find boxwood garland too, but this year our garland is cedar.

we hang a fraser fir wreath from the local farmer's market. But that box wreath with rich red ribbon has me rethinking my choice. Hmmm

Do love that illustration...that house worthy of your talent, so beautiful

We always get a boxwood wreath for our front door. Perhaps I'll get a square one this year. I'm loving them on Pinterest.
