Turquoise and Gold Deco Mesh Peacock Wreath
I was recently contacted by a wonderful lady named Laurie that runs a Bed and Breakfast in the Uptown New Orleans area. She was looking for a wreath to hang on her front door that expressed what the inside of her home looked like.
I meet with Laurie one afternoon and was able to take a look around her large, beautiful home. We spent a little time talking about what she wanted. After the meeting I knew that she wanted a nice statement piece for her Home/Bed and Breakfast to welcome her guests. This is my creation for Laurie.
If you are planning a trip to New Orleans and want to stay at a warm and welcoming Bed and Breakfast, consider The Treehouse Uptown.
Now about the wreath. I started with a 20" wire wreath form. I found a deco mesh that was a mixture of turquoise and gold. I used nearly 2 complete rolls of mesh to make this wreath as full as possible. I added yellow faux burlap ribbon around the entire wreath. I found a gorgeous turquoise peacock ribbon that I used to make the bow. I also added 20" tall peacock feather floral sprays. The completed wreath measures 27" wide. Definitely the largest wreath I have made to date and it is lovely.
And here is a shot I took after I delivered the wreath. I looks great on her door!!
