  • Those are real! That is very cool – anyone know how the apples and lemons are attached?

    That is a Della Robbia wreath. This Old Williamsburg type décor you see a lot in Old Town Alexandria and sometimes a house on Logan Circle does this. If i was making one I would cut a board to fit my transom, drive nails or screws through the back, glue the magnolia leaves down and then stick the fruit on the nails.

    I looked for better directions on the Google machine but didn’t have much luck. Anyone else?

      That’s what I would do too. And I would stick a rhino on it. 🙂

    • If you stick the fruit on nails or screws, won’t it start to rot pretty quickly? Would you need to replace them after a couple of days?

    • This is Immaculate Conception Rectory, Msgr Mundell started putting this up 30+ years ago. Thanksgiving is wonderful at this parish and they really put a great deal into the decorations. Msgr Mungell would deliver turkeys to lots of needy families in the area, he is still greatly respected and fondly remembered.

    Oh god I hate this. Reminds me too much of those tacky bowls of plastic fruit someone like your great-aunt would have.

      Once I was on a holiday home tour of some swank houses in New Orleans. This one lovely house had a beautiful arrangement of fruit and greenery on their mantle. Then I looked closer and it was all moldy. Gag puke. On the other hand, for Thanksgiving my mom fills hurricanes with cranberries and oranges. Quite pretty and she checks for rot and replaces the fruit as needed.

      I’ve done a contemporary version of this, and it was featured as PoP Door of the Day so you know it was fine, with lemons and limes on a square frame covered with greenery. Not plastic and it smelled amazing as you went in and out of the front door!

  • I love this. I have zero pinterest skills but would buy one for my transom. Anyone know where I could buy something like this?

  • nice pineapple 😉
