I wish I was able to take a better picture of the wreath, but with the lighting and where it is hung in the room, its hard to get all of it. The candles are a little crooked because it fell from the ceiling the night before last (it scared me to death too), I had to re-glue them last night and now they don’t stand up straight. No worries, I bought a sturdier hook to hand it on and it hasn’t come down since.

No, I didn’t use the traditional colors, simply because I couldn’t find candles or ribbon that weren’t bubble-gum pink and grape-candy purple.  So I just used creams and red (for Gaudet Sunday). I would have used pink roses for Gaudet Sunday, but the pink roses look really, really fake. The red were more lifelike.
