Haul out the Holly!

All the gorgeous wreaths at Pemberley Collection have made us feel like we need a little Christmas!  Yes, Thanksgiving is still a week away, but we have to admit we are already enjoying a few Christmas tunes.  One of our favorite ways to get into the holiday spirit is to decorate is with a beautiful wreath.  Of course the traditional fir wreath is always beautiful and smells wonderful, but there are some other fabulous options as well, some of which can be used year-round!

Traditional Holiday Wreaths

Pretty fir wreaths embellished with silver Christmas balls create such a dramatic entrance to this home!

A very traditional wreath in Southern Living- we love how they added pine trees by the door and added a red-and-white striped doormat.  So festive!

Fruit, magnolia leaves, and pine cones are gorgeous on this front door wreath!  We would recommend avoiding the fruit unless you live in a cold climate, though.  With the crazy 70-degree days we often have here in December, those grapes would be raisins!!

Southern Accents

This room is just so cozy!  The wreath and garland are just perfect over the inviting fireplace.

House Beautiful

We love seeing wreaths hung inside windows instead of outside!  The green and silver combination in this room is so elegant.

We love a wreath layered over a mirror.  It creates such an interesting depth in a room!  The snowman figurines on the other hand...

Martha Stewart's wreath with silver accents is perfectly paired with mercury glass and silver vases.

Tobi Fairley's wreath with apples and pheasant feathers is so unique and beautiful.  You can see her whole holiday spread here

Magnolia leaves make the most elegant wreaths.  My grandmother and mom have always decorated with them, and now we have some trees of our own that I can use to decorate.  The thick, waxy leaves are so substantial and stay beautiful for all of the Christmas season.

Nontraditional Holiday Wreaths


A beachy twist- this wreath is made of palm tree fronds and is embellished with starfish and raffia. 

Coastal Living Palm Frond Wreath

Red berry wreaths are so cheery.  We like this twist on the traditional red berry wreath, with the addition of the rustic long stems.

Cottage Living

This antler wreath from Oly is anything but traditional!  Perfect for anyone with modern taste (and animal friendly, as it is made of resin). 

Elle Decor

We don't typically think of boxwood wreaths at Christmas, but we absolutely love this one!  The striped ribbon is perfect against the charcoal cabinets.

Cottage Living

Would you guess that this is a paper wreath?  This is so unique and such a fresh take on the traditional wreath.

This wreath made of colorful glass ornaments incorporates such a fun vintage style into this room!  My mom has some old (antique?) ornaments like this from my grandparents, but she is always nervous to use them because they are so delicate.  Not a good combo for little fingers and pets!  But this wreath is the perfect (and perfectly safe) way to use them!

Home Companion

Leave it to Martha Stewart to make a moss wreath so festive and elegant.  The pine garland and trees in oversizes urns make this front porch so welcoming and stylish.  Did Eddie Ross have a hand in the styling of this porch?  We would believe it if he did!

Martha Stewart Living

Year-Round Wreaths

This yellow baby's breath wreath is so warm and inviting!

Plain white baby's breath is beautiful too!  One stylish MoS friend has one of these she keeps on-hand for anything she hosts, from baby showers (add a pink or blue ribbon) to bridesmaid luncheons (add a ribbon that matches the dresses) to holiday parties (red or green!).  Such a great idea!

How unique is this succulent wreath?  It would be so pretty in a kitchen. 

We make no secret of the fact that this Miles Redd room is one of our favorites!  The red berry wreath layered over the Venetian glass mirror is so elegant and perfect for any time of the year!

Miles Redd

How unique and modern is this grouping of straw wreaths, attached by thick ribbon?!  We love the geometric pattern it creates, and we definitely think you could use this year-round!

Cottage Living

Do you decorate with wreaths?  Just for the holidays or year-round?

This post is getting me excited about decorating for Christmas. I love the palm frond wreath. I usually keep a wreath up year round on my front door and switch it out with the seasons.

So many great ideas here.

I was browsing for wreath ideas and love your page. One note: Even real antler wreaths are animal friendly. Deer shed their antlers every year. It's a popular activity around here (NE WA) to go out "looking for sheds" in late winter.
