Types of Artificial Summer and Spring Greenery
How To Store Your Greenery
Clean your artificial spring flower garlands and wreaths before storing them off-season. Use a feather duster or a soft microfiber cloth to remove dust on surfaces. Then, to make your foliage fit more easily into their storage containers, compress them by gently flattening the tips. Cover your wreaths or garlands in plastic and use desiccant pouches for moisture protection.
Pick a dark, dry, and cool place as your storage area. Avoid storing your artificial foliage in rooms that change temperature or are exposed to direct sunlight to prevent damage. For more tips, read our Artificial Flowers Care Guide.
Location: Where Can I Display a Wreath or Garland?
Plan your display area before purchasing floral accents. For exterior spaces, make sure to look for the ‘outdoor-safe’ label in Balsam Hill florals and greenery. These are UV-protected to resist fading and damage from the weather. We recommend having them outdoors for up to three months a year, so they stay vibrant longer.
Color: How to Choose a Color for Your Wreaths and Garlands
Select foliage that will complement the overall look of your room design. Choose blooms in colors of the season, like pastels and whites in spring.
Size: What Size of Flower Wreath and Garland Should I Get?
Size is just as important as style when decorating with spring floral garlands and wreaths. A garland too short may look unfinished, while a wreath too large might overwhelm your display. Below are measuring guides to help determine the correct size for your floral décor.
- Wreaths are usually hung on doors but are also used to decorate mantels and walls. Balsam Hill’s artificial floral wreaths range from 22 to 34 inches in diameter. For standard doors, we recommend 22 to 26-inch wreaths. Meanwhile, our 28 to 34-inch wreaths are more suitable for larger entryways. They’re ideal if you want a slightly oversized piece for your standard door.
- To find the best spring front door wreaths, measure the width of your door. Then, subtract 12 inches. The difference is the ideal diameter of your wreath. For a dramatic effect, choose a bigger wreath but make sure to leave at least two inches of space from the edges of the door.
- Garlands are ideal for decorating mantels, archways, or bed frames. Balsam Hill artificial spring flower garlands are 6 to 10 feet long. Most can be linked together for wider spaces. Get the right size by using a string or yarn as a placeholder. Drape it over areas you want to put the garland on. Then, measure the string to get the right garland length. When wrapping around an object, use greenery twice as long. For mantels and tables, allot at least two feet on each end, so the garland drapes perfectly on the edges.
