I was super excited when CB2 reached out with an opportunity to design one of their awesome holiday wreaths. After hearing that another blogger was being incredibly creative and designing an advent calendar, I knew that I also wanted to make something original to set myself apart. Enter the idea for a modern take on the traditional (and OUTDATED) wreath centerpiece.
Here's my INSPIRATION:
And here's the FINISHED PRODUCT:
Instead of your traditional greenery and red accents, I focused on eucalyptus and rose gold (both having their moment right now)...and tied it together with black and white accents.
It was really easy to make. I just turned the wire wreath upside down and laid the rose gold garland along one side, then looped the eucalyptus in and out of the wires. I also choose to leave a bit of the wire exposed to underscore the modern nature of the wreath, but you can fill with your desired amount. From there, I just propped up the platter in the center and added a mix of hurricane, taper and tea light candles to tie the centerpiece together.
GET THE LOOK:
Clockwise from top left: Stamp Table Runner // Eucalyptus (I used the Baby Blue type, but you can also create a beautiful wreath with the Seeded and Silver Dollar type of Eucalyptus) , Rose Gold Garland // Halo Taper Candle // Drohgo Taper Candle // Wire Small Hurricane // Round Slab Server // Gami Rose Gold Candle Holder (tea lights). CENTER: The CB2 Wire Wreath
Note that the wreath is pretty big, so it's best as a centerpiece on larger tables. But, It also looks great hanging up.
NOW....Go nuts with your own CB2 wreath. Share it with us using #MYCB2. CB2 will be regramming some of our favorites throughout the rest of the holiday season. See their blog for more wreath inspiration.
