What a beautiful and simple idea. I love that you have used Australian native flowers that can be found in most nursing home gardens. I am sure that my residents will love making one of these wreaths for Advent

A wonderful idea. Is there any significance for the pink and purple candles?

It was once tradition for the Pope to give someone a pink rose on the fourth Sunday of Lent before Easter of cheer up the solemn nature of that season. Before the commercialization of Christmas, Advent was also a very solemn time for Christians; people use to practice fasting and repentance; hence the pink rose became the pink candle to 'liven-up' the tone of the season.
