I've recently been making dried bouquets and they have quickly become my very favorite products to make. I enjoy creating, arranging and coming up with new seasonal ideas. We've previously listed some rustic lavender bouquets along with a a colorful wildflower bouquet mixed with purple and pink larkspur. They are available in our online store.
Last week I added a new Woodland bouquet and a new Christmas/Winter berry bouquet. The Christmas bouquet makes a great holiday decor piece or makes a wonderful gift. It comes with a rustic Christmas ribbon (pictured) This bouquet can also be used for winter weddings even after Christmas! The bouquet has lavender, dried grasses, cedar clippings, and Holly berries and pepperberries. Berries are for decorative purposes only! I do offer to change out the Christmas themed bow with other color choices of satin ribbon for weddings - I have red, green, purple, blue and lace to name a few. I can also get just about any custom color satin ribbon for this bouquet so just send me a custom order request on our Etsy store. Here are few more pictures of this bouquet, which is also pictured at the beginning of this blog post. There is a listing for this bouquet on our store. I do only have a limited quantity of these bouquets! I generally make each bouquet when ordered.
The Woodland bouquet is filled with rustic woodsy elements such as lichen, dark green caspia, cream larkspur, lavender and some gold wheat and dried grasses. I love the natural look of this bouquet. It comes wrapped in burlap and the green ribbon on the listing can be changed out for other colors such a lace, blue, pink, purple or your custom color.
Thanksgiving is only days away. We have so much to be thankful for! This year has been a year of great joys, great sorrows, and lots of changes. Sadly, we lost my mother this year in April after a lengthy illness. We've had some job changes (for my husband) which brought our family back together in Southeastern Michigan. However, we had to say good-bye to Marquette and the Upper Peninsula - a place we have come to love over the past two years.
As we enter into the holiday season we are definitely grateful, but ask for prayers as well. My husband will be having open heart surgery for a bicuspid aortic valve directly after Christmas. We are confident that all will go well and we place all our fears, anxieties, and worries in God's hands. We know He definitely has a plan for our family. I hope everyone has a truly blessed Thanksgiving !
