Florets - Floral Quote - # 93 - by Selina Lake



"Hanging foliage wreaths on the front door is a tradition I love to do in the run-up to Christmas. Typically, wreaths were made from evergreens, which symbolize strength, but they can also be made from an assortment of flowers, leaves, fruits and twigs constructed in a ring shape. I like making wreaths in every season: Easter wreaths in pastel colours with spring flowers, fragrant rose wreaths for summer parties, autumn wreaths celebrating the rich tones and, of course, Christmas wreaths for welcoming guests to your home. If you are keen to try something different this year you could bundle together a simple posy of pine sprigs and tie it with a ribbon bow, then hang it upside down from the door knocker."

P.S. This is the last 'Florets' for 2015 - I'll be back with more in January.

Dear Ingrid, what a lovely wreath that is, with its trios of natural ingredients. The colors are very softly beautiful...with those tiny red accents adding to the rhythm. I am inspired...and wish that the door to my apartment faced cooler outdoor air, rather than drying air of an apartment building's hallway.

I guess I could make a wreath from dry materials...but there's something particularly pleasing about the scent of fresh greenery.

Great post as always! xo
