pottery barn inspired wreaths

Normally, I'd choose to put together a more unique look than copy a page right out of a catalog,
                                                            however,
                                     Pottery Barn - Christmas 2011 - page 76
                                                      I am so copying you!
                                                                                     
                   
                         
                                            White house with black shutters.......check
                                            Picket fence and double gate...........check
                                            Wreaths for windows & gate...........check
                                            Cheap bows for wreaths............umm, yes
                                            Garland for railing............................check 
                                            Covered entry.................................nope
                                            Red door........................................nope

                I've always put wreaths (adorned with cheap red bows) on my windows and gate,
                                     and garland on our front fence and porch railing.
              After a trip to Dollar Tree for ornaments and my garage attic to retrieve the wreaths,
  I'm only 658 ornaments, 219 glue sticks, underestimated hours of labor and a dusting of snow,
                                     away from the picturesque perfection of page 76!
                                                                                           
                                                                  
                 Do you think it's tacky to ask your Thanksgiving guests to bring a glue gun?  :)

You go girl! Your guest can burn off a few of those Thanksgiving calories and keep the post turkey doze at bay, not to mention the benefits of bonding over a project!

Not at all! Jump all over that free labor opportunity. ha! I can't wait to see the finished product, as I'm positive it'll be stunning!

Ha ha ha!! You are so funny! I thought that was your house when I clicked on your blog today! I'm sure it will be in a matter of days! Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to you! I am thankful for the daily inspiration, beauty, (and laughs) that your blog brings me.

I love your idea of asking guests to BYOGG! Hey, there's no such thing as a free Thanksgiving dinner!

I can't wait to see what you come up with! Thank you for designing my Fall windows. They look so beautiful and festive. We received so many compliments. You are so talented and fun to work with.

I was going to make a joke that your Thanksgiving would be a BYOGG then I saw someone above beat me to it! Let me tell you - I have no problem copying every single detail from that perfect Christmas house! I can't wait to see how yours turns out!!
