A CREATIVE FRONT DOOR can easily greet visitors all winter, even after traditional holiday wreaths are long gone. Impress your guests with personalized decorations that ofer a warm, seasonal welcome. A cornucopia of pine and ribbon is stunning and hospitable, while a wreath of pine and evergreen sprinkled with "snow" provides an elegant and traditional touch. For a more modern look, a wreath draped with succulents provides green throughout the winter. An easy variation for big impact with little efort is the flling of small wooden crates with succulents or greenery. As for those summer planters, transform them into stately topiaries using greenery from the yard. They can serve as a simple alternative to traditional door decorations or be used in combination for a grand entrance. Customizing your front stoop with whimsical elements is a clever way to make a statement. A wooden pitchfork draped in magnolia leaves and lucky horseshoes is perfect for the horse lover. Elegant, whimsical or nature inspired, your choice can be as unique and diverse as your family.
