A Hankering For . . . A Summertime Wreath

I adore hanging beautiful wreaths on my front door all year long but summertime wreaths are my favorite.

With warmer days just around the corner I'm thinking it's time to craft a summertime wreath to spruce up the entryway.

But what type of wreath?

With so many different options I've had a hard time making up my mind.

I have narrowed it down to three different types:  boxwood, mixed floral, or Hydrangea.

Boxwood wreaths are a classic.  I think they are simple and beautiful.  It's hard to go wrong with something like this.

The second option that I like is a floral wreath with lots of different types of roses and filler flowers.  I of course would make a silk rose version so it would last a long time.  Here's so examples that I love.

And last but not least the Hydrangea Wreath.

Ahhh, Hydrangea's are favorite of mine and they always make me happy just looking at them.  I'm thinking a wreath made of them will make me happy too!

If it were you having to make the choice which of the three types would you choose?

I still have some thinking to do!

  1. The first wreath speak so to a magical and warm welcome in my mind. They are all beautiful. The black and white bow is stunning, the others are cottage chic and the burlap is unexpected adorable...and it reminds me of hydrangea cupcakes. :)

  2. They are all so pretty!!! Hydrangeas are my favorite, so to me any of the hydrangea ones are great. I love the boxwood as well. Please share when you decide and hang yours. :-)

    Happy Hump Day!

  3. Oh, choices...choices, so many beautiful choices Robin! I'm drooling over the boxwoods and the hydrangeas. Although the rose florals are gorgeous, I'd worry they'd fall apart too soon. :)

  5. Hi, I like the Boxwood wreaths-they could go year round, but my favorites are the Hydrangea wreaths. I have a wreath on my front door that has been there since Feb., so I'm thinking I need a new one. Thanks for sharing.
