Fresh Flowers on Your Front Door

Fresh flowers on your front door are powerful….and a profound reminder of nature’s fleeting beauty.

To add fresh flowers to your door you will need either wet floral foam, hanging baskets or succulents.

Wet Floral Foam: With wet floral foam, you need to soak the foam holder and then insert the fresh flowers into the foam. The foam provides a water source for the flowers and allows you to create quite a show stopper on your front door.  How would you feel if you walked up to this door and was greeted by this fresh tulip wreath? Pretty amazing I would guess.

Garden basket: With a garden basket, you can place potted flowers inside a woven basket that has a flat back.  And by choosing flowering plants that cascade over and down the basket, you can create a dramatic effect.

Also, you can use a metal garden basket that holds water, allowing you to create a full fresh flower arrangement right on your front door.
