I have people from all over the world read my blog. I am so glad you stop by to read. Since I have such a vast audience, I would like to ask a question to all of you.
What is your opinion on having a wreath on your front door?
I have lived all over the United States; mostly the Southeastern part. Since I've been married, we have pretty much always had a wreath on our front door. Even when we lived in Utah and Indiana (neither of which are in the Southeastern United States). I was always told it was a form of "Welcome." I also like to see a bit of color on the door.
I like to change out the wreath with the season. During the Spring and Summer months, I like to have bright colors. During the fall, I will have a harvest type wreath. Christmas, I bring out my Christmas wreath. This year, I had a Mardi Gras wreath, and recently, I spruced up my wreath for Spring time. For a tutorial on how to make these wreaths, click here.
With the house on the market, we painted our front door black. I thought about putting the wreath back up, but for some reason I felt maybe I should not. I asked our Realtor, and she told me no. She said she had just recently shown a property to a couple from Oregon, and they asked her about all the wreaths. They thought it was weird. My Realtor said it was a Southern thing. I never thought of having a wreath on your front door as a Southern thing.
So, what do you all think? Do you have a wreath on your door? Do you think it's weird? IS it a "Southern" thing? I would really like to hear from you.
Personally, I think our door needs something. But I guess that's just me.
