Decorating for the Season with a Christmas Forest Wreath
As many know, I LOVE Christmas, and I LOVE to decorate for Christmas! My tree is already up, my snowman is on the mantle, and a couple of new stockings are hung by the fireplace with care. I still want to string some lights in the “kid cave” also known as the “Christmas cave” during the holiday season.
I haven’t decorated with a “real” Christmas wreath before, but I’ve always wanted to. This year, Christmas Forest offered to send me a wreath to check out, and I have to tell you that after seeing this wreath, I’m going to be budgeting for a wreath each year in the future! Let me show you why!
My wreath showed up at my door all boxed up and decorated for the holidays. There was a nice message on the outside of the box. Notice that the wreath comes from Washington state, and I live in Pennsylvania.
That wreath came a LONG way, but it looked so fresh! And if I could only have a blog with “smell-o-vision”… When I opened the bag, the smell of evergreen was SO wonderful! The cones looked so perfect and beautiful!
I have to show you the back of the wreath because it looks like it is so well made! I chose the 20 inch Jingle Bells Wreath. The Jingle Bells Wreath doesn’t just have jingle bells on it, but it also has lights, too. The lights are battery operated. Note, the green box on the left side of the above picture. The green box is the battery pack, and it has a “home” to sit in. The neatest thing? Check out the white label above. My wreath was made by Julie. Isn’t that a cool personal touch?
So, not only is this wreath the focal point of my house during daylight, it is also the focal point at night with the lights on. I wish I could keep the wreath IN the house, so I could look at it all the time.
The Jingle Bells Wreath is available for $55 on the Christmas Forest website. Make sure to scroll down and see all their wreath options. I’m sure you would find it difficult to make a choice because there are so many neat wreaths!
I love our Christmas Forest wreath for its beauty. If you are a “green” person, you will LOVE Christmas Forest for their sustainable practices. Christmas Forest has a really neat page on their website that is listed as “Christmas Ideas”. After reading about the origin of the wreath, scroll down to the part about “How to Keep Your Christmas Green”. Christmas Forest doesn’t cut down trees to make the wreaths. They harvest the tips to use for making wreaths, and this promotes tree growth.
