Well, hello spring! We could hardly wait until you arrived, but here you are showing all your glorious colors! To celebrate your arrival, I put together this pink spring wreath for our front door.
The front door has never seen the color pink before now because, well, it's red. The thought of using pink on a red door has NEVER occurred to me. But I purchased a roll of pink burlap ribbon last year but never used it. But now that spring has arrived, I was itching to use it.
So yesterday, I pulled some things out of my stash, including that pink ribbon.
I already had most of the things but I will admit that I purchased the faux peony flower and several pink tulips from Walmart recently. The pink burlap ribbon needed a few flowers to go with it.
I couldn't resist this peony. I tried growing peonies at our previous home and waited 3 long years before I got one bloom. So when I saw this faux one, I knew it would be really pretty with the pink burlap ribbon.
The grapevine wreath is one that I painted white somewhere along the line. You may remember seeing it on our SPRING MANTEL last year. I hot-glued some dogwood and quince petals on the wreath, both of which are blooming in our yard right now.
The star of the wreath is definitely this pink bow, don't you think?
I love its floppy, spirit-lifting spring color!
The color and the flowers bring a smile to my face because this is my favorite time of year. The red door seems to be saying, "Pink, you were made for me!"
A real celebration of nature's rebirth!
Love your wreath! The pink ribbon that inspired this wreath looks wonderful with the white painted wicker wreath. The flowers are a lovely spring touch that we all need after a very rough winter.

Very pretty, Jane. I like the pink against the red door. At least your door is adorned. Mine still isn't. Must get on that.

Beautiful Jane...yes the star of the wreath is that adorable pink bow, but then again, the entire wreath is truly a star!....Have a great weekend!.....and wondering if you and Leo are going to Haven this year....
Very lovely! 😉
I love everything about this. Everything. <3
So pretty. I like how you have some sprigs of small red blossoms that match your door. It ties the wreath and the door together. Very pretty!
Jane, for some reason I never think of putting pink and red together but this is so pretty. The two shades of red and pink really complement each other. I am like you, so ready to celebrate spring and warm weather. This wreath has stimulated my creative juices to get started also. Thanks for sharing. Jean

Very pretty for your door Jane. Love the gray grapevine with the pretty pink.
It's beautiful, Jane. I pinned it for future reference. You do such a great job with your décor!! Happy Spring!
Jane the pink is perfect against the red door. Just stunning and beautiful 🙂
Looks beautiful on the red door! New for you. Peonies seem to grow easily here in Boston but I'd love to see magnolias thriving here!! It's snowing today!! Tenth week end of snow this winter! Oh to see a bud of "something" emerge!!
That is beautiful. Love it.
