The fall and winter months are filled with holidays; each with its own wreath or decorations. After Easter, they need to be stored until next year. Some of these holidays need a large box to hold all of the items, but holidays like Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s day, usually only have a wreath, a flag, and maybe a sign or two.
The answer for storing a wreath is as close as the party platter ordered for the celebration. Many places, such as Chick-fal-a or Sam’s Club, sell catering platters that come on disposable plastic plates. The plates have a clear domed lid that is about three inches tall. These platters make great wreath boxes. The clear plastic lets you see what is inside. It seals securely enough to keep large bugs and mice from chewing on the decorations, and enough to keep pollen and common dust from settling onto it.
Wreaths stored in boxes like this can be stacked four or five tall. They last for several years, and when they crack, can be replaced with another party plate.
Many homes display yard flags for the holidays as well. These can be stored in a closet on pants hangers. Fold the flag in half, clip it to a hanger, and picking out the next flag to hang will be as easy as choosing an outfit to wear. Place other small decorations in a clear plastic bag, and clip that to the hanger as well.
