Welcome to the second in a series of blog posts about the items we have a available at Snapdragons this festive season. This one will be about the artificial wreaths we have available, we will still have our popular fresh holly wreaths (£4.99 each) and beautiful fresh spruce wreaths (£14 each) available from early December. like our silk arrangements these wreaths are one off designs so if you see something you like pop in soon to get it. Wreaths are lovely decorations for Christmas and are not just for the front door. they also look good in cottage kitchens, hall ways, mantle pieces and interior doors.
Lets start with this traditional green wreath. Made of artificial spruce foliage, it is adorned with a lovely collection of pine cones, cinnamon sticks, frosted berries and dried fruit. Topped off with a festive tartan bow. This is warm, and welcoming without being glittery £15.50
Here a smaller green wreath with a more rustic feel, it is decorated with wooden Christmas tree shapes and frosted berries, the bow is a rustic burlap with natural, red and brown stripes to pick up the colours used in the decoration. £9.
Here we have something abit different. I look at the this wreath and think "the holidays are coming" It has a vintage american vibe with the red and silver/grey colour scheme including snowflakes, baubles and layered bow. It has the added extra of a large bottle cap decoration hanging in the center which depicts a vintage Santa and wording Merry Xmas.  £12.50

Bottle cap decoration also available separately in two designs £4.75 each.
This elegant wreath is intertwined willow ring in antique gold colour with a swag of mixed leaves and berries, across the bottom and a stunning red bow with gold snowflake pattern. At just £9.50 what a bargain for something so stylish.
Looking for something abit different or bows not your thing how about this quirky star wreath, the willow base is decorated with Christmas tree foliage and metallic flecked leaves, with mini baubles and brown glittered poinsettia flowers. £9.50
These warm brown tones are really on trend and are warming when added to white colour schemes or tie in nicely with dusky pink and blues.  
 Another rustic wreath this time with a touch more sparkle. This twig wreath have been decorated with glittered leaves and berries and is finished off with a simple red bow, but still the whole effect is very pleasing for its simplicity.

 This last stunning wreath is an extra large green base and is decorated with a luxuriant gold bow and elegant gold swag across the bottom full of gold and glittered foliage, gold apples, pine cones and star. This wreath really makes an elegant and striking statement. £25.
