Overview

”James has a command of garden and interior design.” —Southern Living

James T. Farmer III is all about the “elegant gardening lifestyle,” using the bounty from your landscape, cutting gardens, fruit trees and farmers markets to enrich your home and table. In this book, James inspires us with wreath creations for a grand entrance in any season, for the church altar, or for over the mantel.

Whether winding greenery onto a wreath form with your own hands and florist’s wire, or transforming a store-bought wreath, the secrets are in the garden (and the produce section of the market): roses, hydrangeas, citrus, berry bushes, complementary greens and herbs, fruits, vegetables and flowers in season. Here are ideas galore for making gorgeous wreaths for year-round and special festivities.

Read an Excerpt

I have always been fascinated by these words, by the imagery and symbolism rings represent. Hearing Granddaddy as celebrant, commissioning new couples with such thought-provoking words, leads my imagination towards other rings of symbolism and meaning—wreaths.

A wreath holds the same testament of never-ending devotion, while historically representing seasonal joys as well. Since the dawn of antiquity, wreaths have been used as adornment on doors, heads, tables, and homes. They are full of history, lore and representation.
