Welcome to Southern Swans Florals on Etsy where my goal is to create wreaths for homes and businesses that spotlight beautiful, whimsical or inspiring decorative accessories, realistic florals, and gorgeous ribbons!  A Southern Swans wreath, made with top quality materials, is sure to garner compliments and conversation!

Wreaths also make the perfect gift for friends and loved ones on special occasions, such as marriage, a new home, birthday, anniversary, a new baby, and the holidays!  (Note: Wreaths can be shipped directly to another recipient.  Please contact me at for details.)

My Story

I was blessed to have a fulfilling 40-year career in education serving children as a teacher, supervisor, and principal.  I believe two of my strengths were thinking outside of the box and being a creative idea person.  So now I am delighting in a new adventure designing wreaths full time!  This exciting journey incorporates my two career strengths and the two things I have always liked to do: SHOP for beautiful, whimsical and inspiring decorative accessories and CREATE things that make people happy!  What I love most about wreaths is that they can brighten many different places in your home, not just the front door!  Changing out wreaths can provide a breath of fresh air or a festive start to a season or holiday!
