While wreaths are an obvious holiday staple, they're also great for year-round use. I was reminded of this when I stopped by a friend's house over the weekend, where I was greeted by the most beautiful, fragrant ring of flowers on her front door. I love the idea of welcoming my own guests in a similar fashion. And beyond that, they're just a simple and stylish way to decorate your home-kind of like a really long-lasting, no-maintenance-requred alternative to a houseplant or bouquet. Inspired, I looked all over and found ten excellent options to be used indoors and out.
