Door Wreath Information

Front Door Wreaths
A beautiful floral wreath displayed on our front doors is a warm and wonderful way to greet our guests and our own families as they approach and enter our homes.

The custom of displaying a wreath at the entry of our home is as old as human history, and no other aspect of home décor comes close to the benefits, low cost and beauty of a floral wreath to welcome our valued guests.

How long will a wreath last on my door?
Generally expect a wreath to last for a season. A season is loosely defined as several months before most people will be ready for a change. A wreath displayed in a sheltered location will last longer than one in an exposed area. Silk wreaths usually hold up longer than those made of natural materials.

Can I hang any wreath on my exterior door?
Deciding which wreath, or which type of wreath to display on an exterior door is important because not all wreaths should be used on all doors, or in all locations.

Keep in mind that all types of wreaths do best in indoor locations, away from direct light, heat and moisture. That said, it is important to display your wreath where you will enjoy it the most, so try to select a wreath that is best suited for the location you plan to display it.

Which wreaths are best for a sheltered location?
A door in a sheltered location is protected by a porch roof and is located on the north or east side of a home. Most wreaths can be displayed on a door in a sheltered location provided it is protected from wind, sun, rain and high humidity.

Which wreaths are best for more exposed locations?

  • ·Most Wreaths made from artificial or silk materials are generally suited for locations that are not protected from sun, wind, rain or humidity.

 

  • ·Wreaths made from natural materials such as grasses and grains or seashells generally do well in those locations not protected from the weather elements.

 

  • · Wreaths made from natural fresh greenery are suitable for exposed locations, only in cool seasons or cool climates.
