Every year around Christmas you will find Carol Riley scurrying around town decorating mailboxes as her special gift to her friends. And if you are lucky enough to be on the list, every year your beautiful mailbox décor makes the holidays festive.
Carol Riley, owner of the floral design company Lillies, is one of the most sought after wedding floral designers in the South. She has captured the hearts of many brides (and their mamas) with her arrangements that look as if you have gathered flowers from your own garden. During the holidays, her same creativity plays into her “mailbox gifts.”
Carol has decorated hundreds of mailboxes. She offers it as part of her floral services, and her very close friends often receive it as a gift. To make the masterpieces, she first anchors an OASIS Floral Cage to a mailbox with an eyebolt. Once it is securely in place she adds beautiful magnolia leaves, pine branches, evergreen, and hollies branch by branch. A beautiful red bow adds the finishing touch.
If you are looking for a special gift to create for your friends, let Carol’s idea inspire you to do the same.
