Have you ever thought about the symbolism of the wreath? Did you know that many years ago people in Europe would put wreaths on their doors to identify their home in the same manner that house numbers are used today? Each house would have a different wreath made of exotic flowers, most likely grown by the home owner right on their own land. Following in this tradition, Floral Treasure offers a wonderful assortment of unique wreaths currently displayed in the Cummer Shop. Each year the company creates over 1,000 unique wreaths, centerpieces, and wall décor. Floral Treasure has been in the dried flower business since 1998 and has over 60 acres of beautiful flower fields located in the wine country of Baja California. They are growers and manufactures of premium dried and preserved floral decorations with 13 drying and preserving green houses. They next time you select a wreath to adorn your home think about the message it will convey to all who see it.
