  • How long do wreaths and garlands last?
    When ordering for the holidays, please keep in mind that fresh wreaths, garlands, centerpieces, and swags will last approximately three weeks indoors and four weeks outdoors with regular misting every two or three days. As these are fresh cut, the greenery will naturally dry with time which some may see as only enhancing its decorative value; others may see this natural browning as it being the end of its use. Also note that eucalyptus dries within three to four days. It dries beautifully but it should be noted that while the rest of your wreath or garland will be green and fresh, the eucalyptus will dry. Please keep your preferences in mind when selecting materials and an order/pickup date. Our gold or silver gilded wreaths, garlands, and centerpieces will last for several years. Do not place either the fresh cut nor the gilded greenery in direct sun.
  • What plants do you use for holiday decorations?
    Magnolia, pine, cedar and boxwood are native on our property and perfect for locally-made wreaths, garlands, swags, and greenery for the holidays and your special events. We can mix these together and supplement with eucalyptus for wreaths, garlands, and swags that are just what you want!
  • How long does it take to make my order?
    As each order is custom made, allow at least three to five days for us to make your perfect decoration before it's ready for pickup or local delivery.
  • What are your wreath sizes?
    We have 18" and 24" forms; actual wreaths will be just a bit bigger with leaves/branches coming over the form. 18" is for "standard" doors, and 24" is for large doors or bigger spaces. Please give us a call if you have any questions or need a custom size.
  • How do I take care of my fresh cut flowers?
    You will be receiving a wide variety of blooms in your flower subscription. Some naturally have a longer vase life than others. When some begin to wilt, just pluck those out. Generally, your flowers should last about five days, but often they last much longer, depending on how you care for them. When you get home with your flowers, snip about 1/4 inch off the ends of the stems with pruners or sharp scissors. Remove any leaves that will fall below the water line. They will deteriorate and reduce the vase life of your flowers. Put your flowers in a clean vessel with fresh water. Place your flowers in a cool area out of direct sunlight. Change out the water and snip off the stem ends every 2-3 days.
