So Many Wreaths...How Do You Decide?

Collage by Ideezine 

Christmas door wreaths are a wonderful display for the holidays reflective of how we feel during this time of year and there is quite a variety of shapes and sizes.

A wreath is an assortment of flowers, leaves, fruits, twigs and berries or various materials that is constructed to resemble a ring.  In English-speaking countries, wreaths are used typically as household ornaments, mainly as Christmas decorations to celebrate the birth of Christ. They're also used in ceremonial events in many cultures around the globe as a headdress or crown.

Wreaths have history and symbolism associated with them. They are usually made from evergreens and symbolize strength, as evergreens last even throughout the harshest winters. Bay Laurel  (the same Bay leaf used in cooking) may also be used, and these wreaths are known as a laurel wreath.

When it comes to selecting your Christmas door wreath how do you decide? 

What do you consider: Size, door color, materials used for fresh or fake?

Do you have yours made to your specifications?
