{Christmas} Day 17: Wreaths

December 19, 2011 § Leave a comment

Wreaths are welcomed in homes all year round but during the Christmas season, they make their grandest appearance!  This year, they adorn our front gate and grace our headboard in the master bedroom.  In year’s past, I’ve been partial to boxwood wreaths but really love the appearance of the rustic, wispy evergreen this holiday season.

Displaying wreaths in your own home can be left up to your own interpretation. At Christmas time, it’s not unlikely to find them in expected places of the home. But here is some food for thought!  Have you ever thought about clustering them on one wall, displaying them perched on shelves, suspending them in each window, placing petite wreaths on the back of each dining chair or dangling them over your serving table?

Finally, there are endless options on how you choose to decorate your wreaths. You can leave them bare, layer them on top of one another, integrate ornaments, herbs, fruit, berries, and/or ribbon.  You can even create the illusion of a wreath using your Christmas cards.  So this Christmas, think creatively about your wreaths & enjoy displaying them throughout your home!
