Feminine, Floral Wreaths For Any and Every Home

Spring is officially in session. That means it’s okay to splurge a bit on vivacious colors and to sprinkle the house with wonderful floral prints and vases filled with fresh flowers. Today, we’re focusing on a traditional, wonderful symbol of warm weather: the floral wreath. Whether you’re decorating the front door and welcoming every guest that comes over or creating some unique wall decor, floral wreaths are a soft, feminine touch for any home.

1. Rustic.

On the front door on the house or even on the front door of the backyard shed, a simple, rustic wreath can have spring touches too. With dark branches and just a few bright yellow flowers (or even some fuchsia) you’ll have the perfect welcoming on any and every door. Of course you can use more flowers and keep that rustic appeal but just using thinner florals and staying away from voluminous blooms. Use muted colors and nothing exceptionally outlandish when you’re envisioning something that blends in with its rustic surrounding.{found on lovelycupboard}.
