LED Greenery

I know last year there was some discussion about wreaths, garland, and bows. I making a push into more of this material. Dara has excellent prices on her material and I wanted to know if anyone had any opinions. I saw Christmas Designers at the Texas Nursery and Landscapers Association show and know people have spoken kindly about them as well. Of course there is my NE source as well but I want to make sure I'm not over paying which does occur with select products.

Dara seems like the logical choice but I welcome any feedback.

I would recommend buying un-lit wreaths and then lighting them yourself. With LED's you can get some tint differences and you want your wreaths to match everything else.
Plus, it tends to be a couple bucks cheaper this way.

I'd rather get poked in the eye with a sharp stick then have to spend any time adding lights to greenery. I printed out your website info for reference.

Haha, same here... Have you checked out christmasdirectokc.com. I think the 36" wreaths are $29, and the 24" are $15. Does Dara have a website?

Really, I could knock out 36 inch wreaths in about 5-8 minutes. Well worth the time to make sure your lights match up.

Dara's site is www.ccbydara.com. The site is not much to look at but she can get you many things you probably need for a good price. A fellow HBL (now Holidynamics. Lets just say HD) member in the Houston area had very good things to say about her.
