If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the years when it comes to seasonal decorating, it’s that less is often more for our family.

When you create a simple, soothing and minimal home – it doesn’t take much to add a touch of warmth and charm for the seasons.

Laurel Wreaths

Laurel wreaths and boughs were traditionally made with bay laurel leaves, a timeless and fragrant evergreen. This style is considered both Greek and Roman, as the Roman culture emulated and embraced inspiration from the Greeks, as an expression of cultural admiration.

A laurel wreath is often in the style of two swags of branches in a horseshoe shape made of bay laurel leaves. It is a symbol of victory and is was traditionally worn around the head or neck.

However, the look and style of bay laurel can come in the form of swags, garlands, traditional round wreaths and so much more!

Over the years they’ve evolved and are often made with wheat, olive or bay. In fact, you’ll see a fall wheat laurel wreath in this post, as it was one of the first ways I incorporated this style into our home several years ago.

Through the years I’ve even shared a couple versions of laurel wreath style in my Thankful For Cards. Check them out in wheat, or these printable Thankful For Cards in the style of bay leaves.

Where to Use Them

Laurel wreaths are a timeless addition to your home and variations of these type of wreaths can be used at any time of the year.

Here are a few of my favorite ways that we’ve incorporated them into our home over the years:

  • As a garland
  • Hang over artwork (or replace the art seasonally with a laurel piece)
  • As ornaments
  • As stocking holders
  • Statue decor elements
  • Table centerpieces
  • Printable artwork

  • Year Round or Seasonal – While we tend to love the look of these metal and gold wreaths and boughs for the holidays, many of the pieces we gathered can easily be used year round!
  • Click Image to Shop – It will take you to each product. Depending on your browser, you may need to double-click on mobile.
  • Items Sell Out Quickly – If you love something, don’t let it get away! Items sell out quickly and because of their seasonal nature, they may not restock.

These can be used anywhere, but I love them on built in bookshelves and console tables. They’d be beautiful displayed in a window, as well.

  1. Hi! I found your blog just recently and LOVE it. Since finding it I’ve realized I need more warmth in my little rented basement apartment, and I have found so much inspiration from you! I have really similar bar stools (if not the same, not entirely sure. They’re from IKEA) but they’re black, and I’m just really wanting to change them up without buying new ones. Can you tell me where you got these covers for your stools?? I’m thinking they’ll work for mine! Thanks again.

    1. Thank you, Morgan! Nice to “meet” you!

      They’re the same stools! I just painted mine to match our cabinets and my friend Lisa made slipcovers for them (she has a full tutorial should you choose to do the same!)

      One of the easiest ways to make a space feel warm is to add a plant. A warm paint color and a few layers like pillows and throw blankets never hurt either.

  2. Love that wreath SO much Julie! And it’s perfect in your kitchen. No one does simplicity as beautifully as you!!

    Happy fall to you!
