Step aside, holly and mistletoe -- or at least make room for something new. The carnation is a surprisingly elegant and easygoing choice for holiday displays. This wreath of white flowers with burgundy-tipped edges offers a warm welcome.
Wreaths add flair to virtually any room, but hanging them on doors or armoires with nails or tacks can ruin the wood. Using decorative copper hangers that hook over your doors is one way to solve this problem.
The harvest theme takes on new dimensions when executed in unexpected colors and materials. Turkey quill feathers and magnolia leaves, colored on one side with floral spray, are mixed with stalks of wheat to create a stunning wreath.
Fill your home with the sweet smell of bay laurel (or rosemary) with this easy-to-make wreath. And when the holidays are over, don't throw it away: Be sure to wash the wreath well right after you make it so you can remove the dried herbs from the wire frame later for use in cooking.
