I’ve had this spring wreath made for a few weeks now, but I hadn’t put it up yet because of the pollen. We’re surrounded by trees here at the Crossroads, and when they bloom, we are blasted with the pollen they release.
I had started decorating the front porch with a neutral theme before the pollen arrived. You can see the beginnings of my efforts with my Neutral Bunny Tablescape.
And then the yellow haze descended. I’ve learned that it’s just easier to let it happen, and when it subsides, to thoroughly clean everything on the porch. Pollen season is just about over here and the rain that’s expected today will clear the air. So yesterday, we removed almost everything from the porch and pressure washed all of it.
The wreath is part of a display around the front door. The grapevine garland surrounding the front door has now been up for over a year and has been through many seasons and holidays. It gets redecorated each time, and this is just the beginning of this one. By using the neutral colors, I can extend the time that it can stay up.
The base of the burlap wreath is one that I used last year for my Fourth Of July Wreath and Door Display and again on our Fall Porch. This time I embellished it with some new lace burlap ribbon and some white mesh that was used on our Christmas Porch.
