Traditionally, Christmas wreaths are displayed in four different ways: in the doorway, in the mantel, in the windows and on the wall above the dining table. Choosing the perfect wreath could become puzzling. Shape, size, and colors are the three characteristics we must consider. The wreath must be combined in harmony with its background, not too big or too small for the doorway or the mantel. The other important factor is the color. The color of your doorway could define the color of your Christmas wreath following the general color rules. On a white door, every color except white, would look impressive. A red wreath would be combined harmonically on a white or a brown doorway. Green wreath would look great on a bright door. Silver, or gold would lighten up a dark door. The way Christmas wreaths interact with their background is always charming!
