I received a Dogwood Small Square Entertaining Tray from Wendell August for a review. First let me tell you Wendell August is not like any other ordinary website. They sell quality gifts your family will enjoy for years. I loved the details that went into the Entertaining tray. I am using this for candle right now but there is so many things i can use it for: candy dish, decorative plate, or even a wine holder when we have guests. If you are looking for a unique Mother’s Day Gift Wendell August is the perfect place to find it.
The legend holds that the Dogwood tree was once very large and its strong and sturdy wood was used to build the cross on which Jesus was crucified.
Because of its role in the crucifixion, it is said that God both cursed and blessed the tree. It was cursed to forever be small, so that it would never grow large enough again for its wood to be used as a cross for a crucifixion. At the same time, however, the tree was blessed so that it would produce beautiful flowers each spring, just in time for Easter.
The most unique part of the legend is that the petals of the dogwood actually form the shape of a cross. Upon close examination, it can be seen that the blooms of the tree always have four petals. And the tips of each of the petals are indented, as if they bear a nail print. There are even colors in the petals that bring to mind the drops of blood that spilled during the crucifixion.
A timeless elegance makes the Entertainment Series perfect for life’s special moments. The Dogwood Large Square Tray is functional with unmatched sophistication and is handcrafted in America. Perfect for weddings gifts, or a gift for that special someone, the Dogwood design has been a best seller for nearly 75 years.
