Fall wreaths are a beautiful sign that summer is starting to transition into fall. As I take my evening walk through our neighborhood I am already beginning to notice some of my neighbors are already getting into the spirit of fall and are putting up their wreaths.
To say that summer went by this year is an understatement. It seems like just yesterday that it was june and I was planting my garden. Now I look out our window in the evening and I am starting to notice a few signs of the changing seasons. The wind is a bit crisper and cooler, the leaves are starting to change from vibrant greens to yellows and browns, and the neighborhood kids are heading back to school.
Traditional Fall Wreaths
Certain images are traditionally associated with fall. Pumpkins, fallen leaves, acorns, and even footballs. To go along with those iconic fall images their are certain colors that we traditionally associate with autumn.
Decorating for fall is one of my favorite times of the year to decorate. Their is just something about the fall colors that make a home more welcoming to guests.
Halloween Fall Wreaths
As we make our way through September and find ourselves into October it starts to become that time of the year when we begin to decorate our homes for Halloween. Aside from a freshly carved pumpkin another great way to welcome those young trick or treat enthusiasts is with a Halloween fall wreath. Although the neighborhood children might not notice your wreath in all the excitement of Halloween their parents sure will. A great Halloween wreath is welcoming and encourages everyone else on your street to get into the spirit of Halloween.
Thanksgiving Fall Wreaths
Thanksgiving marks the start of the holiday season. Its a time when family and friends gather together to celebrate the fall harvest and share a meal together. It is the time of the year when you graciously welcome friends and family into your home. A great way to welcome them is with a Thanksgiving inspired wreath on your door.
Rustic Fall Wreaths
A safe bet for anyone looking to buy just one fall wreath is to go with a rustic one. The season of fall in itself is a wholesome time of the year. The cooler weather of the season leads friends and family to seek refuge indoors by a cozy fireplace. To add a bit of extra warmth to your home in the fall its advisable to add some rustic tones to your seasonal decorating. Fallen leaves, pine cones, and twigs will all add a rustic ambiance to fall decorating. Burlap and wood wreaths are great ways to add some layers and texture to your decorating.
