Interpretive Inspiration - Performance Three

|Manzanita Trimmings + Floral Festoon|

|Manzanita Trimmings + Floral Festoon|

Here's another prototype for the holiday wreath reinterpreted.  To give it that homespun California vibe I thought about the idea of using the rich and resplendent branches of native west coast Manzanita.  Now this wreath was a prototype so you're only seeing the idea of a wreath made of Manzanita trimmings.  The completed wreath would be a full, bountiful bundle of trimmings adorned with festive flora.

The flora of choice seen here consists of sculptural Aeonium rosettes, stunning starbursts of blue sapphire Eryngium, and a variety of chic, sleek, and 'rustique'  Eucalyptus capsules also commonly referred to as 'Gum Nuts'.  I think the look is simple yet cool and Californian.  I call it Sierra sophistication.  What do you think of this idea?
