This time of year, everyone’s a sucker for things shiny and bright.
Timothy Bahash of 4mula keeps the season festive sans glitter with his living ornaments and wreaths.
Small, burlap-wrapped orbs with a single succulent and plants enclosed in simple glass spheres are an earthy ode to the holidays. Gift an especially sweet someone a wreath scattered with spiky sprouts. Pick up a ready-made version or get creative mixing buds in shades of green, red, and purplish-blue.
Unlike poinsettias that droop faster than you can say “eggnog,” Bahash’s creations are in for the long haul. Detailed care instructions come with each one, but you can always hit him up later for pruning and advice.
Now that should make your eyes sparkle.
Available on Saturdays, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at Rittenhouse Farmers Market, Walnut Street, between 18th and 19th Streets. For custom orders, call 215-413-1300 or email email@example.com, $20 and up.
