The style of your wreath should depend on where and when you are going to display it. Here are the most popular options to consider:
If you intend to hang your wreath on your front door, notice the color of the door and interior of your home. Dark colored wreaths will not be seen from afar if hung on dark brown or black doors. Choose bright colors to bring your front door to life. The same would apply with white or cream doors. Focus on contrasting accents.
As much as you would like your wreath choice not to be affected by the season we are in, an evergreen wreath during spring would not look good. You should keep this in mind when choosing a wreath. Spring begs for the brightness of Forsythia and Peonies. As for summer, choose the beauty of Amaranthus or Canna Lilies. Fall is all about yellows and oranges, so you should incorporate those colors in your wreath. Suitable flowers for fall would be Helenium and Chrysanthemums.
If you would like to hang your wreath indoors, you need to determine the style of your home.
- For rustic décor, a grapevine or twig wreath will capture the essence of your home.
- Traditional styled homes are ideally complemented by wreaths made of bundles of flowers.
- County styled homes should go for a wreath that includes fruit such as apples or grapes.
- Flowers and fruit will look out of place in contemporary interiors; you should opt for a wreath made of unusual materials such as wooden dowels, metal or paper.
A holiday wreath is a must in any home, and it is a simple yet elegant decoration to welcome guests and family.
For Christmas, you should keep it simple and choose one that incorporates red and green.A traditional choice would be a twig wreath with berries and pine greenery. Youcan also find ones that have red or green ribbons attached to it or have had fake snow sprayed for a more festive look.
Depending on your personal taste (simple or colorful), there are two recommended choices for an Easter wreath. For a simple Easter wreath, a bunny shaped wreath made of vine with different neutral-clolored ornaments attached at the bottom will look fabulous. If you would like something brighter, which would attract more attention, choose one with an abundance of ribbons and spring flowers in a color combination of pink and green or yellow and purple.
Halloween and Thanksgiving wreaths should interpret colors of fall such as orange, red, yellow and brown. If you choose a simple wreath with no other additional ornaments, you can use it for both holidays.
Holidays like 4th of July are all about being patriotic, so choose a wreath with blue, red and white elements. A simple decoration yet one that makes a clear statement can be a wreath with blue, red and white Chrysanthemums. For a more festive look, pick a wreath completely made of ribbons in these three colors. An extra touch to both of these wreaths would be decorative stars attached to them.
Choosing an appropriate funeral wreath can seem difficult, especially if you are not the organizer. Inform yourself of the color scheme or particular styles of the funeral. A safe option is to choose a classic white wreath made of white roses or carnations since it offers an elegant design. For a more personalized design, you can choose a rose trio heart, which comprises of red, pink and white roses. Other flowers that are most commonly used at funerals include: lilies, daisies, Gerbera, Chrysanthemum and Delphinium.
