How To Choose The Right Thanksgiving Wreath

Thanksgiving is a time for family, friends, and of course, decorations! We've got you covered if you're looking for the perfect Thanksgiving wreath to hang on your front door or to match your home decor this year. This article will discuss the different types of wreaths available and help you choose the proper fall wreath for your home.

Consider The Material

When it comes to Thanksgiving wreaths, you'll find that they are available in a variety of materials. Mainly, there are two categories of wreaths to choose from: wreaths made from fresh greenery such as evergreens, or wreaths made from natural but dried botanical materials. We offer both here on our website. You can see our wide selection of Thanksgiving styles on our collection of fall wreaths.

Thanksgiving wreaths can be made with other materials as well. For example, you can find grapevine wreaths, harvest wreaths, pumpkin wreaths, leaves wreaths, flower wreaths, floral wreaths, burlap wreaths, and mesh wreaths, turkey wreaths, pinecone wreaths, sunflower wreaths, eucalyptus wreaths, corn husk wreath, and even berry wreaths to match your Thanksgiving decor at many stores. You’ll want to consider whether it’s a live wreath or a foam wreath, as these will both have completely different care instructions and match your fall decor differently.

Choose A Color Scheme

One of the first things you'll want to consider when choosing a Thanksgiving wreath is the color scheme. What colors will you be using for your other decorations? Do you want your wreath to match or complement those colors? There are many beautiful fall-themed wreaths available in various colors, so take some time to browse and see what catches your eye. For example, orange and yellow would complement your decor, our Farmland Fall wreath and Northwest Glow botanical wreaths are wonderful choices. Both have stunning orange and gold coloring that perfectly celebrate Thanksgiving.

Another color that works beautifully for Thanksgiving is copper. Our Majestic Magnolia fresh evergreen wreath is accented nicely with cooper colors, including copper-colored ball ornaments. The fresh Pacific Sunset wreath has green and copper ball ornaments added to a stunning assembly of adonments.

Dimensions Matters

Another important consideration is the size of the wreath. You'll want to make sure it's not too large or too small for your available space. Measure the area where you plan to hang the wreath and use that information to help you choose the correct size. For example, if you're hanging the wreath on a front door, you'll want to select a wreath with appropriate sizing. Our 26” fresh evergreen wreaths are specifically sized for a standard-sized front door, and to be displayed outside. Conversely, if you have a large space to fill such as a barn, large wall, or a fence, you may want to go with a larger 32” wreath or even two smaller wreaths. Remember, when it comes to matching your other Thanksgiving crafts, fall foliage decorations, or other centerpiece decorations, you want to make sure the autumn wreath blends in perfectly.

Think About The Details

Once you've decided on the basic style of your wreath, it's time to start thinking about the details. What kind of accents do you want to add? Do you want to use real or artificial elements? How about ribbons or decorations like greenery, hydrangea, fall leaves, burlap, maple leaves, gourds, white pumpkins, or fall colors that match your other door decorations? There are many ways to personalize your Thanksgiving wreath, so take some time to browse the different options and choose the ones you like best for your front door wreath.
