Like a new blank canvas that is ready for an onslaught of shapes and colors, our fields have been turned, disked, cleaned up and readied for their new pièce de résistance.
They are now patiently waiting for the next planting, soaking up the rain we’ve received and the sun that comes after — a well deserved vacation from yielding so much.
We were honored to be invited back to the Carmel Plaza’s pre Holiday shopping event this year. It was a beautiful day and we so enjoyed meeting people who hadn’t yet heard of Creekside Farms and what we do. We were bursting with pride at the expressions of appreciation from seeing just the few wreath designs we were able to bring along with us.
The Mixed Eucalyptus Wreath shown below would seem to reach out and tap people on the shoulder as they walked by with it’s strong, earthy, lingering scent. Inevitably, they would turn around and say “what is that??”…and there it would be be – 22” of three varieties of untamed, vibrant green eucalyptus.
One of our favorite attributes of all of our fresh wreaths is the gradual change that occurs once it is made and hung in the place of choice to be enjoyed. It doesn’t happen all at once, but, like nature itself, it starts to dry and shift slightly – the colors lighten and take on a patinated hue.
With our wreaths, pepper berries and herb braids as centerpieces, the need for decorating is sated.
We love our simple, rustic Creekside Farms sign that was made by a friend and treasured by us.
Our beautiful, simple, understated display.
