Project Description

Who said that wreaths are only for the Christmas holiday? Welcome to the world of wreaths! A world where there is a wreath for every season, holiday, and special occasion. 

The word “wreath” tends to bring an automatic thoughts of Christmas.  But if you drive around your neighborhood, you will notice that many homes have beautiful wreaths on their doors all year round! Be one of those homes.  Celebrate holidays, big events, and your interests with a wreath!

Details make a difference! You will soon start to notice the homes with the wreaths on their doors. They just look like “there is something different” about them. 

 

Who is Event Craft Studio Seasonal Wreaths and Holiday Décor?

My name is Liliana Perez and I am the owner of Event Craft Studio, Seasonal Wreaths and Holiday Décor.  I make unique and custom wreaths for all seasons of the year. I am raising funds so that I am able to increase my inventory and support the demand for my wreaths.

 

You are so creative! Can you please help me?

That’s how it all got started.  Every year I would change the color/theme of my Christmas decorations.  The tree décor would always have a matching wreath.  But this only happened once a year! I started decorating the cubes at work and the vestibule at home during all holidays, not just Christmas.  Eventually friends and family started asking for help!

 

 

 

The demand

The demand for wreaths is real! But like any fashion business, you have to prepare ahead of the season.  Haven’t you noticed how in August you already see Halloween costumes? Those costumes were already in production months in advance. 

The same game goes for the wreath world.  A Halloween and Harvest wreaths should be created and listed by August. Christmas wreaths should be created in September, Spring wreaths in December, and the list goes on and on. 

 

The problem

I’ve excitedly worked on a wreath during the actual season only to have it not sell because I’m a season behind! My potential customers already have their wreaths. 

 

The solution

The solution would be to create wreaths and increase inventories the season before! The solution can be very expensive since supplies don’t go on sale until the actual season has arrived; i.e., Christmas supplies go on sale during or after Christmas.

The cost of materials such as: grapevine base, ribbon, flowers, and signs, for 21” grapevine wreath can be $35-$75, sometimes more! This does not even include mechanics such as glue, wire and staples.  A store should have a minimum 50 wreaths in stock at all times.  It costs anywhere from $1,750-$3,750 to create a 50 wreaths for the store inventory!

 

Don’t forget storage!

I make them, tag them and bag them.  However, they must stored properly before they get purchased to ensure they are in great condition when they reach their new home. A small storage unit costs more than $600 per year!

 

How you can help

You can support Event Craft Studio by helping me grow my business by increasing the store inventory in a timely fashion! Increasing supply inventory will allow me to create products in advance of the seasonal demand.

The Project FAQs

Do the wreaths have real flowers?

The wreaths are made with artificial florals.

 

 

What size are the wreaths?

All wreaths, with the exception of the small wreath which is 18", are 21"-23" in size. 

 

 

Can I choose colors for the Small Wreath?

Unfortunately you not able to select colors for the Small Wreath.  However you are able to select one of four complimentary colors for the peonies in the Welcome Wreath. 

 

 

Why may the floral vary from the photo? 

Due to seasonal store inventories, some of the wreath florals may not be available for purchase.  I only expect this to be a possible issue for the Spring Wreath or Christmas Wreath which are part of the All-Seasons pack.  If inventory issues are encountered, I will do my best to ensure the florals match as closely as possible to the model in the photo.

 

 

Do I have to pay any additional shipping costs? 

Not at all! Shipping is included with your order if you live in the continental U.S.  

 

 

When will I receive my items? 

I will work on creating your wreaths as soon as your orders are placed.  However all items are expected to ship approximately 4-6 weeks after the campaign closes which is from mid to the end of September. Right on time for Autumn! 

 

 

About Liliana Perez

I am a creative at heart and my family noticed this from an early age.  I started attending craft classes at the local craft store at the age 10 then I started oil painting at 14. I continued this path by obtaining Interior Design and Home Product Development degrees from New York's Fashion Institute of Technology and worked as a designer for a home textile company.  

 

I later made a career change and have now been in the financial field for 11 years.  However it is hard to keep a creative from being creative and I used the holiday seasons as an outlet.  I would decorate my home, mailbox vestibule and even the office cubicles where I worked. This definitely drew a lot of attention! 

 

Friends and family started asking for help and I couldn't resist! I finally realized that it was time to start working towards making decor my career.  I am now working part-time in the financial world while I work on launching my creative business as a wreath designer.
