I enjoy decorating and decorating for the Holidays makes it even
more special and rewarding. Many of today’s styles are a beautiful
blend of eclectic, primitive, rustic, French or whatever you can
imagine. Gone are the days of matchy, matchy-thank goodness.
I have enjoyed designing and creating three different styles of
wreaths for our home and I am sharing them with you today. The
first wreath will hang in our dining room on a very beautiful antique
hutch that was my Grandmother’s.
This wreath is a blend of bold and natural the base of it is grapevine.
Most of the grasses, wild wheat and acorns I found while on my
morning walks. Since I was envisioning a little bling I spray painted
the acorns gold and also some of the tips of my floral pieces.
I have been crazy over orange this season so naturally I added a
glorious orange bow which just happens to have delicate threads of
gold running through it.
A little rustic and country is the theme of this wreath and it smells
wonderful too, each one of these sweet little pine cones smells like
I embellished this wreath with some faux felt pumpkins and pearls,
mini mums, and yes more acorns from my walks which I left natural
for this wreath. Some of the pine cones have a smokey black tint, so
I was super tickled when I found this black and cream check ribbon.
I feel as though it brings all the elements together.
This wreath has found a new home -my oldest daughter was
helping out with a Fall fundraiser and asked me if she could include
this wreath in her basket of goodies to be auctioned off.
To me this sings French Western, a little triangular grapevine basket
spray painted gold holds a beautiful bouquet of Falls finest. Rich
burgundy red silk dahlias, bright yellow mini mums, burnt orange
faux pumpkins and autumn leaves bring Fall to our home.
I will be hanging this on our Front door as soon as Halloween is
I have enjoyed Welcoming Fall into our home with different
compositions, styles, and textures. Enjoy decorating your home for
this wonderful time of the year.
