Christmas Wreaths at The Spree

Tuesday, November 8, 2011

Need Inspiration and Ideas for stunning Christmas Wreaths???

Found several this weekend, while visiting my daughter, Ashley, in Raleigh.

Saturday, we perused The Spree;
the 27th annual shopping extravaganza presented by The Junior League of Raleigh,
at the Convention Center, downtown.

Greeted by Sir Walter Raleigh!

Decked out in fabulous pink accessories!
Only he alone, could pull these off! :)

My heart did a little flip, when I walked in and saw the shopping below;
145 exhibitors.

Back to the Wreaths...

They were gorgeous,
but came at a hefty price -- just under $250.00.
And no, that was not a typo.

The wreath below, was much prettier in person -- my pictures didn't do it justice.
The wreath base was red and made a striking statement.

A few more pictures from The Spree...
Didn't get many, the crowd was thick!

Wall or Door Hangings, below.

Cutest little elves!
So sorry that I didn't go back and purchase one of these!
They were around $35.00, reasonable I thought.

Loved these stools.
Cute boots too, of a random bystander! :)

Simple, elegant arrangement...

Really loving the polka-dot tablecloth overlay!

Hope this provided inspiration for all those still planning their Christmas decor.
As much as I love fall, I am so ready for the new season! :)

  1. What a fun event! I loved seeing all the pictures of those shiny objects. Loved Sir Walter Raleigh all decked out. LOL!



  2. Oh my goodness this is fabulous. I love that green. I noticed the copper with animal print arrangement. I am doing the living room tree with some copper animal print ribbon and mixing in gold and copper ornaments...this inspires me to throw in some of the blue I have stored away.:-)

    Thanks so much for the inspiration Rhonda!
