Christmas wreath making party // Colorado wedding planner

A major perk of being a wedding planner in Colorado is getting to know my fellow wedding professionals. Networking meetings over coffee turn into the start of dear friendships, and for that I'm thankful.

So, it was appropriate to celebrate the holiday season and a successful 2015 wedding season with two of my favorite-pros-turned-friends, Holly of Love Letters Floral Design and Chris of Chris Loring Photography. These two ladies put their hearts and souls into their work and I'm so happy I know them!

I had the girls over to our new house for some wreath making fun (see #8 on my 30 before 30 list). And when you get a photographer, florist and wedding planner together, you'd better bet the wreaths are profesh... and the elements of the party are staged for perfect photos. Who can blame us?

1. Step one: Procure spiced sangria. Stage it. Photograph it.

Step 2: Gather wreath making supplies. You'll need:

  • a wreath form
  • floral wire
  • scissors and floral shears
  • a few different kinds of greenery (we used princess pine as the base)
  • decorative accents of your choosing - ribbons, berries, cotton, pine cones, sparkly things, etc. 

Step 3: Assemble small bunches of greenery and fasten to the wreath form using wire. Repeat this all the way around the wreath in two layers.

Step 4: Add decorative accents

Step 5: Fluff  


Thanks Chris and Holly for such a fun night!
