White Christmas Wreath

Love it or hate it?  I can't decide.  My mom wanted me to make a white wreath and this is what I came up with.  I'm not sure this is the final product.  I am very pleased with the wreath itself, I'm just not sure of the decoration, namely the flowers.  I used the same technique of tubes and cut ruffles and you can see the red/white striped tubes peeking out in the center and underneath the outer edge.  I love this look.  I have not been a fan of what I call the looped wreaths.   I also don't like to close the wreath totally in the center.  I believe a true wreath should have an open center.   I used about 15 yards of metallic deco mesh on this wreath.

Well I have pulled off the red flowers, they just didn't look right.  I think I have made up my mind what to do.  This wreath looks so beautiful just as is, I am going to remove all the decoration except for the little silver balls and make a large red and silver 12 loop bow with 4 long tails and attach it to the upper left side.  It will really look different than the photo above.  Hopefully much better!

Ribbon costs alot.  I ended up purchasing a roll of red burlap wired ribbon.  Here is the wreath stripped and just with a big red bow.  Still not sure I like it.

It's growing on me though as I look at the photo.  Does it need anything else?  I kind of like it plain like this.  Still not sure this is the look I'm going for after all.
