18 Floral Wedding Wreaths That Are Way Prettier Than Flower Crowns

Flower crowns will always have a special place in our hearts, but once a wedding trend has appeared pretty much everywhere, new ways to embrace the look start popping up. Enter, floral wreaths. While we obvz will never stop loving (and wearing) flower crowns, arranging flowers in unconventional shapes breathes new life into seen-before decor. Take a cue from the gorgeousness of a halo of blooms and colorful florals and greenery to provide a fresh take on crowns. Not only do these floral wreaths make epic ceremony backdrops, they can be crafted into monograms and incorporated to get that organic-meets-boho wedding look. Scroll on down for the most swoon-worthy wedding wreath inspiration that’s making us super excited for wedding season!

1. Framed Signage: Take your wedding signage up a notch by framing out whatever signage you want catching your guests’ eye, like drink menus, seating charts and that super clever #weddinghashtag. This calligraphy menu would be gorgeous on its own but the organic mossy look really makes it stand out. (via Lauren Kinsey / Southern Weddings)

2. Floral Swing: This photo literally took our breaths away. The lush greens + blush roses give off a Southern romantic element that gives us all the feels. Use the twisted twigs, greens and flowers to create a sweet swinging seat during your post-nuptial photo sesh. (via Jeremy Chou / Charis Events)

3. Dessert Table Backdrop: An assortment of wreaths of greenery in differing textures adds a contrasting element to this copper-accented dessert table. While most dessert tables are decked out in florals, these organic wreaths let the sweets do the talking, to create an inviting vignette. (via Megan Welker / Green Wedding Shoes)

4. Photo Prop: Foliage makes for a sweet photo op, and can even play up all those rustic vintage frames in your photo book. Add a banner to send your guests your love and gratitude after the wedding. Consider using a quote that’s significant to both of you to make this wreath option extra personal. (via Zipporah Photography / Green Wedding Shoes)

5. Colorful Chandeliers: These round chandeliers are dripping with wildflowers in vibrant colors that truly make the space pop. The contrast between the blooms and the industrial bulbs adds a unique touch that totally ups the boho factor. Balance out these statement-makers with low bouquets as your centerpieces to let the ceiling take center stage. (via Finch and Oak / Hello May)

6. Head Table Backdrop: Hanging wreaths behind the head table is a sweet way to set the space apart and guarantees you’ll adore every photo taken of you, while you listen to loved ones’ speeches and whisper into your beloved’s ear. Suspended at different heights, these wreaths have focal point clusters for a slightly different take. (via Katie Nesbitt / Inspired By This)

7. Monogram Wreath: A monogram of your new shared initial should definitely make an appearance if you’re taking your beau’s last name. Monograms are a Southern wedding must-have, and are totally on trend for 2016. Whether you’re down south or not, embrace your inner belle and hang one of these on a door or entryway for a warm welcome. (via Daisy Mae Belle)

8. Suspended Centerpieces: This gorgeous installation combines two new concepts for a totally ethereal and modern approach. Suspend wreaths that only feature greenery along the length of rectangular tables for a touch of that Scandinavian vibe you love so much. (via Carley Rudd / Design Sponge)

9. Photo Hoop: This surprisingly simple DIY is a lovely way to incorporate photos of you and your beloved from years past, or family photos you want to share. No one will ever guess, but the base is actually a hula hoop that was spray painted gold for a completely glam look — #genius. (via Ruth Eileen Photography / Style Me Pretty)

10. Bridesmaid Bouquets: A floral wreath acts as an unexpected alternative to the traditional bridesmaid bouquet. Not only does this option save you money, but the wreath shape ensures your bridesmaids’ gorgeous dresses won’t be totally blocked in photos. (via Robin Van Dyke Photography/ Mon Cheri Bridals)

11. Dog Wreaths: Is there anything more precious than a pup wearing flowers? Consider having your canine friend rock a wreath if you don’t have a flower girl — your guests will absolutely adore this sweet touch and the photos will keep you smiling for years to come. (via Katie Stoops / Snippet and Ink)

12. Ribbon Wreaths: Hand-dye silk ribbon and tie a few to each of the floral wreaths to take this trend to the next level. These hanging wreaths under the tree make the ribbons almost bloom down from the branches. (via Melissa Jill Photography / Green Wedding Shoes)

13. Horse wreaths: Looking to infuse a fairy-tale element into your wedding day? Any fairy godmother would tell you a horse + a floral wreath is kind of a must if you’re getting hitched on a farm, or you plan to incorporate a horse-drawn carriage into your day. (via Vicki Grafton Photography / Burnett’s Boards)

14. Mantle Centerpiece: A wreath makes a statement if you’re lucky enough to have a mantle to decorate at your wedding venue. Surround the wreath with pillar candles at different heights for a glowing effect. (via Kristyn Hogan / Style Me Pretty)

15: Round Centerpieces: Lay your wreath flat on the tables for a slightly different take on garlands. The greenery creates a lush focal point for round tables, while the soft candlelight illuminates the flowers with an intimate and romantic glow. (via Love that Smile Photography / Rock My Wedding)

16. Statement Suspended Wreath: Use one giant wreath to highlight a certain area of the space. It’ll merge minimalist + lush vibes to breathe new life into a raw or industrial look, and would work equally well in a more rustic barn, for a more literal take on the natural elements. (via Geneoh / Style Me Pretty)

17. Heart-Shaped Wreath: Looking for a slightly different twist on the round wreath? Like an emoji IRL, a heart-shaped wreath embodies the sentiment of the day. (via Claire Naylor Photography / Love My Dress)

18. Chair Decor: Set the sweetheart table’s seats apart at the reception with a mini wreath that hangs effortlessly upon the chair. An added perk? You can rock this wreath as a crown, like the royalty you two are — and, let’s be honest, wreaths and crowns will always make a sweet pair. (via Deer Pearl Flowers)

Chilly weather is always followed by comfort food; it’s how we manage to get through those months of endless gloom. Though we love comfort food, it catches up to us after a while and leaves us feeling rather sluggish. We know how weird it sounds, but warm salads are the best for this time of year. They’re the perfect option for when it’s absolutely freezing outside but you’re still wanting to chow down on a healthy dish.

Typically, warm salads leverage roasted, fried or baked components that are used to top a hearty bed of lettuce, among your other fave salad toppings. These recipes are sure to give you a boost of warmth and nutrient-dense bites. Try out a warm salad for your next dinner! We’ve got some hearty winter salads that will warm you up and keep your belly satisfied.

What is the definition of a warm salad?

Warm salads are just what they sound like. Picture your favorite cold salad, but transformed into the perfect dish to enjoy during the winter. Warm salads typically feature heartier, cooked ingredients that add flavorful warmth such as meat, potatoes or other roasted vegetables. You can steam, roast or fry the main source of warmth in your salad recipe. A warm salad is made to keep you toasty and satisfied during the cold months when you’re craving greens.

Can salad be eaten hot?

Salads can absolutely be eaten hot, but not extremely hot. We recommend adding cooked and warmed components to your salad, skipping the greens from being cooked. That way your meal will still retain some of that crunch from a salad we all know and love, and remain cozy. It is entirely safe to eat a warm salad, which also means you can reheat your salad dishes without any worries.

Should salad be warm?

Not every salad you prepare has to be warm. The temperature you serve your salad is up to you! The recipes we listed are the best pairings for a warm salad, but can also be eaten cold if desired. Most salads are served cold but warm salads are a great way to get those greens in during the winter.

Do I serve salad warm or cold?

The temperature of your salad is ultimately your choice! We recommend a salad built with warmer components like roasted proteins or vegetables for wintertime, and saving super cold salads for summer. If you’re craving a heartier meal but still want to eat healthy, opt for a warm salad.

Blake Lively is as multifaceted as they come. She's an actress who has starred in titles like Gossip Girl, A Simple Favor, and The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (plus the upcoming adaptation of It Ends With Us). She's the founder of Betty Buzz, which has a variety of non-alcoholic mixers that taste just as good on their own as they do with liquor. And she's also a mom. Lively has been outspoken about protecting her children from the paparazzi, making rare public appearances with them for events like her husband Ryan Reynolds' Hollywood Walk Of Fame Ceremony.

When Lively and Reynolds seemingly announced the birth of their fourth child on February 12, we melted. Here's everything you need to know about Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively's kids.

What Has Ryan Reynolds Said About Raising Their Kids?

Photo by Amy Sussman/Getty Images

Per People, Ryan Reynolds has made it clear he and Blake are wholly invested in the kids' daily lives. The doting husband and father enjoys the moments of "walking them to school and walking them back" as it deepens their bond. More than anything, Ryan and Blake's main goal is to make sure they teach their kids how to be introspective with Ryan saying, "...that's the thing we sort of hang our hat on the most is self-awareness with our kids."

However, that doesn't mean Blake and Ryan don't absolutely love being parents. "We're very excited [and] we wouldn't do this four times if we didn't love it," he says in an interview with CNBC's Power Lunch. "Everybody's doing great. Everybody's actually doing fantastic. I think if we hadn't figured it out by now, I think we'd be in deep, deep trouble."

"It's a zoo over here," he jokes. "This is my office here, this is where I'll probably — to be honest, I'll probably spend the rest of my life in here."

We love how much energy Ryan and Blake are pouring into their kids. It's always beautiful when parents are able to be present with their kids and teach them how to be present with themselves.

Ryan Reynolds has also mentioned how having daughters "has been such a ride." Since he comes from a family of all boys, having daughters is something that was beyond his wildest dreams! “I love being a girl dad,” Ryan tells Access. “I have three daughters, which I never in a million years would imagine.”

Did Blake Lively Have A 4th Baby?

Blake Lively posted a pic on Super Bowl Sunday showing what appears to be a post-baby body with the caption "Been busy."

Lively confirmed her fourth pregnancy in September 2022 when she arrived at her Forbes event in NYC cradling a baby bump and by posting her own personal photos on Instagramhoping that "the 11 guys waiting outside [her] home for a 🦄 sighting will leave [her] alone."

How Many Children Do Blake Lively And Ryan Reynolds Have?

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds have four kids in their family. They welcomed their third daughter in 2019, making this new addition to the family their fourth kid.

While we know that their three eldest — James, Inez, and Betty — are all girls, the couple hasn't confirmed whether the youngest is also a daughter. Reynolds explained on the Today Show that they "never find out" until the baby is born, and whether they decide to reveal it is totally up to them.

What is the name of Blake Lively's 4th baby?

Since Taylor Swift used the three oldest girls' names in folklore, Swifties think they've guessed the name of the newest addition to the Reynolds-Lively family.

"Calling it now Blake Lively & Ryan Reynolds baby is going to be named Daisy Mae," Kaitlyn Kersten tweeted after the release of Taylor Swift's Midnights in October 2022 (the name is mentioned in "You're On Your Own Kid.") While we don't have official word on what the baby's name is, we do think that James, Inez, Betty, and Daisy sound great together!

Is Taylor Swift friends with Blake Lively's kids?

Yes, Taylor Swift loves Blake Lively's kids! At the Philadelphia show of the Eras Tour, in which Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively attended, Taylor said hello from the stage.

Why Did Blake Lively Name Her Daughter James?

The couple decided to name their daughter James after Reynolds' late father. While the name connects both James and Reynolds to his father, it also gives Lively the chance to bond with her daughter over having historically male names. "I liked having a boy's name," Lively said on Good Morning Americain 2015. "I thought I'd pass it on."

Their third daughter Betty's name is a tribute to Lively's late father. We didn't know the name of the couple's third baby until Taylor Swift used all three names in her 2020 album folklore. Swift also used James' voice at the beginning of her 2017 track "Gorgeous"!

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds have decided not to hire any nannies for their kids. I feel like I could sometimes have a bit of a short fuse, but there's just been this weirdly endless supply of patience," Ryan told GQ in 2015.

The actress used Instagram to admit that being a mom is hard, but she did it with her signature dry sense of humor. “BettyBooze at your service," she wrote in an Instagram Story announcing the new brand. "These are recipes I’ve been making for loved ones for years. But I have 4 kids now. And I’m tired. So here they are. In a can."

However, Lively absolutely loves motherhood, and says in a 2022 interview with Forbes that having children has made her feel more comfortable in her own skin. "Once I had children, that just became even more profound because my time was even more precious, but also I think having children for me made me feel so much more in my skin," she says. "I never felt more myself or at ease in my own body or more confident — not to say that there aren't a bevy of insecurities coming at me a million times a day, but I just feel incredibly settled."

Speaking with People in 2021, Lively also explains how important it is that her children see her accomplish things outside the home. "I want to be as present of a mother as humanly possible and I want them to feel my presence, but I also think the best way to be the best mother is to show them that you can have a life and have a passion and have an identity outside of just being a mother," Lively says.

While she acknowledges that motherhood is all-encompassing, and it looks different for everyone, she knows that having your own identity is very important. "Teaching them that they can maintain themselves and that everything is possible [is crucial]," she adds.
