As we move around town, one thing many homes have in common are the large number of wreaths hanging on the front door. We also have people who have the wrong kind of wreaths hanging on their front door. What many people don't know is an outdoor wreath for the front door can last much longer than they realize if purchased correctly. This is also true for indoor wreaths. I am going to share with you a few simple guidelines to help you in purchasing a beautiful wreath that will last more than just one season or perhaps even less.
The first guideline in considering an outdoor wreath purchase is to determine where you want to hang it. There's the front door, the patio, the deck area and some folks like to put a wreath over the garage door. The best place to hang it is under a covered porch or an indented entry way. Looking at the surrounding area, we want to discern what the environmental conditions are around the designated hanging spot. Is it receiving direct sunlight and if so, then for how long? Will the rain and the wind affect the wreath?
Decorating gorgeous door wreaths on the front door has been like a tradition, if not mandatory. For years, door wreaths have been a part of different Christmas festivities because of its pleasant and cheerful appearance. They are undoubtedly the best accessories to hang on both indoors and outdoors spaces. Furthermore, door wreaths are very easy to use, offers a good number of decorating concepts and above else, they are absolutely affordable. Aside from doors, wreaths can be also placed practically anywhere and combined with other ornaments like lighting, Christmas angels, candles, bells and lanterns.
Choosing the colors is usually determined by matching or complimenting the largest piece of furniture or artwork in the room. There are also themed wreaths available like diaper wreaths for the baby's room, culinary wreaths for the kitchen or dining room. There are wedding, spring, summer, fall and winter wreaths, holiday wreaths as well as garage wreaths. If you look hard enough you can find almost any kind of wreath.
The best outdoor wreaths are the all natural and the silk florals with a natural base. They look the closest to fresh and they can withstand the weather conditions the best if placed under a covered porch or an indented doorway. The silk florals will fade in direct sunlight. Dried floral wreaths will fall apart in the weather increments. Now, I'm not suggesting not getting a wreath for your front door because of the weather conditions. I am suggesting to protect your wreath and your finances by using common sense in protecting them during these hard times. Also, speaking of common sense, when purchasing your wreath, be sure to ask for the box. You will need it for storing your wreath.
