Winter in Naples is wonderful. Club members and talented designers Raynelle Perkins, Mary Raymond and Mary Pulick inspire us with holiday floral design ideas using plant materials unique to our SW Florida climate. We are so lucky to be living in Naples where there is a plethora of unusual plant material to be used for holiday decoration. They will create three beautiful designs using things that are readily available in our winter season.

A Living Wreath

With a wire ring, some moss and live plants, Mary Pulick will create a living wreath that can serve as a centerpiece or a wall/door decoration.

An Embellished Wreath

Raynelle will be embellishing a wreath with the wonderful materials growing and available in Florida. Some of the materials she will be using are magnolia leaves, herbs, and fruits and vegetables.

A Magnolia Garland/Kissing Ball

At $15.00 a foot wholesale why not try your hand at using local materials? They dry beautifully and will not need much care once put in place. Mary Raymond will show you how.
