2017 Wreath Auction

It’s time for the Holiday Wreath Auction at the Missouri Botanical Garden again! I always look forward to seeing the wreaths on display, because they’re all so unique and creative. You’d think at some point, there would be no original ideas left, and yet every year, the wreaths are completely new!

It can be hard to choose a favorite, because they’re all so beautiful, but this year, it was easy…the wreath inspired by Degas’ Little Dancer:

Even if you can’t put in a bid on one of these creations (we never have), it’s worth a walk through the Visitors’ Center just to admire all the different ways the wreaths are constructed!

2016 Wreath Auction

This is the second year that we’ve admired all of the wreaths available in the silent auction at the Missouri Botanical Garden, and I continue to be impressed with how creative and talented the people who made them are!

It would be impossible to pick a favorite, but I have to admit that the Peter Rabbit one, as well as the one in the frame, are especially well done!

Wreath Auction at the Missouri Botanical Garden

The Missouri Botanical Garden currently has 16 wreaths on display in the visitor center, and they are all part of a silent auction to benefit the Garden’s horticulture division. It’s amazing to see how different they all are, and all the different items used to make them!
