I chatted with a lady on twitter the other day. She lives in Australia and she was asking if people in the states still put wreaths on their doors all year round. We'll of course given my wreathing passion, I had to respond back to her. "Of course we put wreaths on our door all year," I responded. Most put wreaths on the front, back and side entryway doors. LOL Wreaths make our homes inviting for our guests.
She responded back that where she lives, they only display wreaths during Christmas time. Wow I thought, learn something new every day. I relayed my amazement to this fact and suggested that she start a new trend there in her Australian town. She replied that she should and was tempted to make a wreath for her son's 5th birthday. I was excited that I inspired her and told her to send me pictures if she makes a wreath; so I hope she does.
But this tweet from a total stranger in another country got me to thinking. As I drive my children here and there, we see wreaths on most doors. When we drive to the coast for family vacations, there are wreaths on most doors. Wreaths are the norm.
If you are looking for summer silk wreath ideas, I've included some in this post. Some of these wreaths are for sale and some I've sold. But I have to wonder, what is the norm where you live--wreath or no wreath?
