Just in Time for Easter

I ordered a wreath from Etsy seller Elegant Holidays last week and it arrived just in time for Easter and for our shocking hot pink azalea bush to bloom for a photo.
I was never much of a faux-wreath person before this year's Christmas wreath and I never though to put anything up after I took our giant pine cone wreath down a few weeks ago. But I was out for a walk with Feeney and spotted a house with a pink wreath that looked like it was made from faux cherry blossoms. The house wasn't anything special, but the wreath made it look amazing. So I set out to find blossoms to make my own wreath. And when an etsy search brought up this funky tulip wreath, it had to be mine. I couldn't find reasonably priced small tulip blossoms to make my own and apparently the seller couldn't either. She scrounged up the last of her pink stock to make this one for me. And for that I'm super grateful.
I've only had it up for a week but the temps are hitting the high 80's during the day and I'm starting to think it's just a little bit too hot to have such obviously spring flowers on the door. I just don't want to be one of those people who has the wrong wreath up. And by "those people" I mean our neighbors who've had their faux Christmas wreath up for 18 months and counting.

  1. I'm that person too! I made a balloon wreath for the boys in my house for their March birthdays and just barely took it down last week. I obviously couldn't have it put for Easter/Spring. Just took me forever to take it down!

  3. That reminds me that I need to take my Easter wreath down and find my summer wreath which is buried behind the yard sale mountain in our attic!!!

  4. Looks great! I'm always tempted to buy the Williams Sonoma ones... but can't justify the price.
