Alright guys, we have one last holiday party post before we sign off and celebrate Christmas ourselves. All that’s left is to jot down a few notes on how to make this lovely wreath, check back in a bit for our last 12 Days of Cocktails recipe, and you’re all set for holiday merriment this Friday, yeah? (Or at the very least, the most prepared guest ever.) Thanks to the ladies behind this wreath making party, Kaitlin of The Every Hostess + Rachel Gomez Photography, for the last-minute inspiration.
Couldn’t pass up a chance to share some paper from Laura Hooper Calligraphy…
Kaitlin says, Equipped with cranberry rosemary cocktails and delectable desserts, this holiday party would get anyone into the spirit. Set in the industrial space of Acorn in Denver, our wreath party encompasses modern and rustic touches with holiday flare. We wanted to stay more traditional with these holiday candy plates from Anthropologie and red + green floral arrangements with pops of peach.
Don’t mind if we do.
(Learn how to make this wreath from Plum Sage Flowers at the bottom of this post!)
Macrons to go, please.
DIY holiday wreath
Foraged pine and foliage of your choice
1. Create the base of the wreath by placing one piece of the pine on the wreath ring and wire it down to the ring with the floral wire. Do this by looping the wire around a sturdy stem of the foliage then around the wreath ring. Continue to do this all the way around the ring until it is full.
2. Once you have created the base, add in another type of greenery throughout for texture and variety.
3. Add a burst of fun textures with berries, leaves, or ornaments. Wire these into the ring the same way you wired down the main foliage.
4. Optional, finish your wreath with a holiday ribbon.
Happy holidays, Cakies! xo
