Adding a beautiful wreath will round out your decorating style.
Wreaths can last all year long; they're not just for the holidays.
Many of us think of wreaths as decorative elements only for the December holidays or for Thanksgiving, but the fact is that a decorative wreath – depending on its style – can add a beautiful touch to your home all year long.
Many wreaths are designed for holiday use in their colors and materials, including glimmery gold and silver accents and bright, shiny ornaments. Others incorporate non-holiday elements, such as nuts, seeds, sea shells, pine cones, non-holiday themed greenery and more. Also for non-holiday use, think citrus leaves, flowers and fruit.
Wreaths are not just a visual design element. They can add a scrumptious aroma to your home too! For the holidays consider traditional fir and pine. For all year long, think bay leaves, sage, cinnamon, rosemary and chili peppers.
And wreaths can be hung just about everywhere, not just on a front door! This includes walls, windows, above fireplaces, even on a mirror in your powder room! Of course, hanging a wreath on the front door during the holidays is the perfect way to get your guests into the holiday spirit before they even come into your house!
Do you have an unusual space where you want to hang a wreath? Wreaths don’t have to be perfectly round. Sometimes they’re oval, square or rectangular, and that shape can add a unique decorative element to your home.
Add a beautiful wreath to your home this season – for now and into the coming year.
