A Beautiful Seasonal Everlasting Autumnal Dried Wreath
"Autumn leaves shower like gold, like rainbows, as the winds of change begin to blow." Dan Millman
Autumn such a beautiful season, the time of the harvest, August 1st marks the festival of Lughnasadh and continues until the start of Samhain, winter.
This Dried Wreath Captures the colours and essence of this season, using the late flowering daisies, sweet Williams, The golden oats, Maize, lavender, sage. Sprigs of hops and colourful pops of oranges, purples and yellows. Poppy seed heads and dried rosemary.
The Autumn Wreath has long been a symbol of Harvest and a powerful reminder of the changing seasons. The wreath being a circle is a reminder of Wholeness and Unity.
Many of the herbs and flowers used in this wreath have powerful historical symbolism within folklore and religious traditions.
Rosemary - Remembrance
Sage - Wisdom
Oats - Harvest, Abundance
Hops - Ward of Nightmares, Help with Sleep. The common name 'hop' may derive from the Anglo Saxon 'hoppon', meaning to climb.
Lavender - Happiness and peace, the beautiful fragrance is believed to soothe the soul, calm the mind. Lavender is often used to help aid sleep.
The flowers are air dried and the Wreath is handmade by Deborah-Máire. The wreath base will either be grape or willow or other grown wood, like Buddleia or Forsythia that has been seasoned. All sustainably sourced and handmade. The flowers are bound by wire, to prevent loosening over time that can come with hemp string.

A very small percentage of the flowers like the White Daisies have been grown in Europe, but no chemicals have been used. On occasion when my stocks of dried flowers runs low, I work with other UK trusted growers who also dry.

The Dried Wreath may look slightly different to the one photographed, due to the drying process, & types of flowers, pigments can vary.
Your flowers will arrive, wrapped in acid free tissue paper & recycled brown paper used to pad out your delivery. Occasionally I will use bubble wrap which again has been recycled from previous deliveries to me.
Upon receiving your dried flowers or wreath, open carefully. Occasionally your flower bouquets will arrive a little flat from being packed in a box for postal reasons. Gently tease them apart and cut the string if you wish and arrange in a vase.
Very occasionally damage can occur in postage as dried flowers are fragile. If this happens please get in touch through holly.co/customerservice.
Care: Try to keep your flowers and wreaths out of direct sunlight as the direct light can bleach pigments over time. Keep them in a dry spot, ideally away from areas that may get damp or attract condensation, like bathrooms and kitchens.
To clean your flowers gently blow on them or dust with a large clean makeup brush, as its soft bristles won’t damage your flowers. Although I would avoid using this with daisies.

Beautiful Sustainable, Seasonal Dried Flowers, Herbs & Grasses, dried and handmade by Deborah-Máire Moon, Founder of MoonKo. MoonKo a beautiful Atelier, where all the flowers are prepared and dried. The flowers are seasonally and naturally air dried with no chemicals, in small batches. The fresh flowers, that are hand dried by Deborah Maire, arrive fresh from incredible growers, all across the U.K and very occasionally from Europe. Its very important to me that no insecticides or fungicides are used in the growing process. The drying process can take many months to perfect and is air dry only.
