'Tis the Season

A winter wedding allows you to be festive, playful, and a bit unconventional. An imaginative bouquet for the season is this wreath made of deep-green boxwood, white roses, and waxflowers -- all hardy plants, available year-round. The pliable greenery and flowers are woven into a wire wreath form; then two ivory double-face satin ribbons are tied in bows. The wreath can be clasped in the hand like a bouquet or looped over the wrist with a ribbon. It represents not only the season but the union of bride and groom as well: The circle is a symbol of eternity.
