"Don't Skip" Thanksgiving Wreaths

Photo via me
Gerard's in Lincoln, Mass has the most beautiful wreaths for Thanksgiving and Fall (above).  Visiting his shop always puts me in the mood around this time of year.  I know there is only about 2 weeks before we all sit down to a cozy dinner with family but, wouldn't it be nice to be greeted by one of these lovelies at the front door?  It is easy to overlook the potential of making a welcoming impression right away by just hanging a beautiful fall wreath.  Everyone moves very quickly on to Christmas and all the decorating that is required.  Don't miss out on the warmth and textures that these wreaths provide.  It might be worth the effort because you probably can preserve them to use next year!
If you get creative with wreath forms and hot glue, you can make any of these wreaths.  The one above is my favorite.

This is a great collection of wreaths! I am one of "those" that at this point is already listening to Christmas music, but these make me want to slow down :)
Thank you for sharing!

Just as I was thinking "what would a Thanksgiving wreath look like?" Seriously, I was thinking that.
Haven't been to Gerards in a while, might have to go now.
Love, love, love the mini-Indian corn wreath. Right up my alley. Kind of looks like a sunflower.
