Q. When can I buy and put up my holiday wreaths? Do they last longer inside? Should I spray them with water occasionally or leave them alone?
Holiday wreaths can be purchased in many locations. Your professional
local florist shop can provide you with a variety of sizes & styles of
wreaths and the ability to customize them with specialty color ribbon and
additional "add in" decorative accessories.
Garden centers, greenhouses,
grocery stores, and catalogs all offer wreaths too, but are limited in the
ability to personalize them to your particular decor.
Fresh wreaths will dry out sooner indoors than outdoors. Spraying them with
water helps a bit, but the mist can leave residue on furniture, walls and
floors, so I don't recommend spraying indoors.
Be careful not to put fresh
green wreaths on a door with a glass screen replacement window! The glass can
act like a magnifying glass and the sun will brown & burn your wreath very
The time to purchase your wreath depends on when you want to start
enjoying it! I usually put them up the middle of the month because I enjoy
them for weeks, even though they begin to dry out in a few weeks. Enjoy!
