Oakland’s annual wreath and greenery sale returns for 2017 with fresh wreaths, a variety of hand-tied bows, and fresh greenery cut from the grounds. This is a wonderful way to honor family and decorate your home, while supporting Oakland’s gardens.
The bundles of mixed greenery are perfect for enhancing your wreath, decorating your home and mailbox, or giving as gifts. Each bundle will include an assortment of hand-selected evergreens chosen to bring fragrance and colorful cheer to your home. In response to the many requests, magnolia stems will be available during A Victorian Holiday at Oakland on Dec. 2. You’ll want to be sure to get there early so you can also have the widest selection of our hand-tied deluxe bows! We’ll continue to have bright red ones, but our supply of the other beautiful ribbons is limited.
Pre-orders are always welcome and we encourage you to pick your order up during A Victorian Holiday. In addition to joining the festivities, those picking up at the event will receive a free bundle of greenery. Those who ordered a deluxe bow can select their choice in person during the event. Bow orders not picked up during A Victorian Holiday will receive a bright red bow. Click here to download and complete a wreath order form.
The wreaths you buy for placement on the grounds will be placed by Dec. 10 if ordered before Dec. 6. Orders received after Dec. 6 will be placed as quickly as possible, usually within two days. These wreaths symbolize the love and respect you feel for departed family members and friends and also bring cheer to those visiting the grounds during the holiday season.
All proceeds from wreath, ribbon, and garland sales benefit Historic Oakland Foundation’s gardens team. Thank you for your support!
