Our own Anna Stockwell, editorial assistant at GardenDesign.com, shows how to make a tabletop wreath.
As a country girl in the city, I wanted to bring some of the woods into my Brooklyn apartment. So, when I went home to New Hampshire for Thanksgiving, I brought back clippings of spruce, hemlock, holly, fir, bright red hawthorn berries, juniper, and fragrant rosemary sprigs from my parents' garden. In the northeast, most of these same greens can be purchased at your local greenmarket or snipped from your garden, but you can easily substitute whatever greenery you have available. I did buy an additional bunch of blue-berried juniper branches from the greenmarket to add to the wreath, as the branches add a nice touch of color and a wonderful scent. A standard floral form on a plastic tray serves as the base for the tabletop wreath and can be found at Michaels or any local crafts supply store.
