Helpful hints for decorating with outdoor wreaths.

April 18th, 2008 by Heather Dyer

Whether bought to welcome guests at the front door or to grace the back patio, outdoor wreaths make a wonderful addition to home décor.

Outdoor wreaths come in many varieties of colors, flowers, season, size, and material.

Dried outdoor wreaths are made of flowers and leaves that have been dried either in a controlled environment or by exposure to natural sunlight. These wreaths work best for people living in a humid climate. Without dense humidity, breakage and flower crumbling occurs quite easily.

Preserved outdoor wreaths are made of live flowers that have been chemically preserved. Some preserving agents also add a boost of color to give the wreath a longer life and more vibrant colors. These wreaths work best for people living in a dry climate as humidity often causes their artificially added color to run or their preservation to be compromised.

Artificial and silk outdoor wreaths are made from synthetic materials and are made to withstand all types of weather and humidity levels. They are also hypoallergenic and have very low maintenance. Most high quality artificial or silk wreaths look extremely lifelike and are built to endure beautifully season after season, year after year.

Depending on the flowers and foliage in your wreath, small adaptations can keep it in season all year round. In summer, consider adding a few sprigs of fresh greenery and even a few real or silk in-season blooms such as tulips or crocuses. In summer, remove the spring additions and add a warm, buttery silk bow with a fan of dried variegated grasses or small blooms such as orange blossoms. In fall, remove summer additions and add rust colored leaves and a spray of baby’s breath running throughout or tied in a bow on the side. In winter, remove the fall additions and wrap a string of miniature white Christmas lights around your wreath and add a few small gold ornaments with a large red velvet bow.
