25 Days of Christmas: Day 1 ~ Wreaths

Thursday, December 1, 2011
Is there anything that says "Welcome" more so than a beautiful wreath hung on your front door?

The holiday season is the perfect time for friends to drop by for a cocktail, drop off a tray of cookies or to just say "Hello". When your guests come calling, you'll want your door to make a great and lasting impression.

The perfect wreath is sure to do the trick.

There is a wide variety of wreaths out there that fit any budget and any decor. Finding one that suits your style isn't difficult if you shop your local mass retailer, craft store, specialty boutique, or online retailer.

Here are a few of my favorites:
Juniper Wreath from Williams-Sonoma $69.95
This handmade wreath appeals to the senses. The combination of juniper berries and spruce pine cones with California bay laurel and silver dollar eucalyptus are a delight for the eyes and the nose. Your guests may just want to stay on your doorstep rather than come inside!

Add some whimsy to your door with this colorful wreath that looks as if it were plucked straight out of "How The Grinch Stole Christmas".

Country Holiday Wreath from WreathsGalore.com $49.99
