A wreath on the front door welcomes guests. And at this time of year more doors than usual wear them.
Some are simple — a swirl of pine boughs. Or perhaps holly.
Others get rather elaborate.
On my most recent visit to the Missouri Botanical Garden, they had a display – available via silent auction – of some beautiful door decor. They were too large for my door and the bids were too high for my wallet, but a person can enjoy for free.
