Show Me How to Make a Fiesta Wreath

Fiesta Wreath Ingredients

Fiesta in San Antonio begins this year on April 10th. Fiesta is an annual Spring celebration that  started in 1891 when a group of citizens decided to honor the heroes of the Alamo and Battle of San Jacinto with a Battle of Flowers.
The first parade had horse-drawn carriages, bicycles decorated with fresh flowers and floats carrying children dressed as flowers. The participants pelted each other with blossoms. It is the largest celebration in San Antonio and includes many parades(River , Flambeau, & Battle of Flowers) festivals(Oyster Bake & King Williams Fair), NIOSA, and a city wide holiday for Battle of Flowers Parade.

To decorate homes, people add Fiesta wreathes to their front door with lots of ribbon, flowers, in bright colors.

I love to re-purpose, re-use and recycle my holiday decorations. My Christmas doorway this year was a Red and white color story, complete with Santa faces and candy canes. After Christmas I removed the Santa faces and Candy canes (they were wired on) and stored them away with Christmas. I left everything on on my green pine garland that is attached to permanent screws around my doorway. Red and white ribbon, a white sparkle garland and all the assortment of red, white and red and white patterned balls.

Valentines is a favorite holiday celebration for me. Probably because I Love, love, love RED, and my birthday is February 12th. I love to throw a party for myself and decorate for valentines day! My next favorite color (or color combo ) is Black and white! I have collected serving platters in black and white to use for many celebrations! So it was only natural for me to add Black and white in with valentines day!

I collected my new wooden conversation hearts from Adams and Company and my stash of Black and white polka dot ribbon ( Love polka dots too!) and transformed my Christmas garland into my Valentine Doorway! Love is in the air!

Scarecrows, Pumpkins & Burlees Oh, My!

Are you wild about Mesh? Or nervous about how to use it? We love it when it’s used in moderation and doesn’t overwhelm. Mixing orange glitter mesh and burlap mesh adds a great fall texture and color to this doorway. A quality 9′ faux green garland is a great base to layer on your fall decorations. (reuse with a Christmas theme) Attach screws into brick mortar or wood framing and leave in so you are always ready to create a grand entranceway!

Burlap mesh in green and natural is added next, overlapping and switching back and forth. Mesh curls are created by cutting shorter lengths of mesh and rolling up. Burlees and metal pumpkins are used  as focal points, followed by half bows. Wire in shatterproof balls (in coordinating colors and varying sizes and textures) Next add the floral stems of glitter leaves and pumpkin picks.
