I love to decorate with bunches of wheat and I use it all year long. I have two bunches that are always used somewhere, so when I needed a hostess gift for a friend, I saw a bunch of wheat and knew it was perfect.
I found this stalk of wheat at Ross for $2.99. With a little dressing up, this is going to be perfect.
First I wanted to add some ribbon. I tried all different colors and even some burlap. All would look great, however I chose a camel and gold ribbon that goes with the colors she uses in her home.
I still wanted to dress it up a little more, so I added a berry pick that I had. The berries are red and camel colored, so they go with the bow.
To get a feel for how it will look, I sat it on my dining table with a lot of Fall decor. The berries are fun but I also like it with just the bow.
So what do you think, with or without the pick?
I decided to go without the pick for my friend. Her home is done with such a quiet Country French elegance, I think just the ribbon fits her best.
Either way, a lovely hostess gift for less than $5 and one that I think she will like. This would also make a lovely Christmas gift for a special friend. Maybe I need to find some more wheat.
Also a reminder to mark your calendar for Nov. 1st for our FALL CLOCHE PARTY.
