The History of the Fall Wreath
Fall is a time of year when the leaves change color and the air gets crisp. It’s also a time when people decorate their homes for the autumn season. One popular way to do this is by hanging a fall wreath on the front door. But where did this tradition come from?
Though the fall wreath is a common sight today, it actually has a long and storied history. The tradition of hanging wreaths dates back to ancient times when they were used as a symbol of victory in battle. (Oh, those conquering Romans!)
In the Middle Ages, wreaths became associated with Christmas and were often used as decorations in homes and churches. It wasn’t until the 19th century that the fall wreath began to take its current form.
Hanging items from the prior year’s harvest was a symbol of preparing for the upcoming harvest with the hope of a bountiful crop.
Today, fall wreaths are a popular way to add a festive touch to any home, and their cheerful design is a reminder of the beauty of the fall season.

Eucalyptus is definitely having a moment in the decorating world. And why not! We love eucalyptus!
This 20″ wreath takes the shape of the eucalyptus leaf and adds all the warm colors of Fall.
Eucalyptus with a twist!
2. Fall Gold
The leaves of this wreath remind me of our backyard tree that turns this amazing shade of gold in the Fall.
However, while gold is the main color, these leaves have lots of visual dimension with hints of green and russet.
This wreath definitely strikes “Gold!”
3. A Modern Traditional Wreath
What could be more beautiful and indicative of Fall than traditional magnolia leaves?
Take a look at the updated, modern style of this magnolia wreath.
Loving these amazing metallic shades!

My current decor wish list includes a large olive leaf tree for our kitchen. While I save for that purchase, I can enjoy the look of olive leaf with this beautiful wreath!
The leaf color is so beautiful and I love the different shades of the olives.
5. Orange and Red Berry Wreath
There is something about the simplicity of a fall berry wreath…so striking and beautiful!
And this wreath boasts an amazing berry color combination of orange and red…nature at its best!
I couldn’t resist including this photo showing multiple orange and red berry wreaths hanging from a balcony!
6. Rustic Refinement in a Fall Wreath
The word “rustic” often conjures thoughts of rough and coarse textures.
Not so with this elegant wreath!
The wispy edges of the wheat are echoed in the feather-light green and tan leaves.
Double the elegance!
#7. The Beauty of Blue
No secret here but I adore using blue in my fall decorating.
The dusty blue Lamb’s Ear leaves combined with the white berries and pumpkins in similar shades really “pops” against the russet maple leaves.
So lush and rich!
