I don’t know how you decorate for the holidays, but most of my stuff is premade and lit up like a…well, like a Christmas tree. All of my stuff is still in storage for the holidays unfortunately. It’ll be nice to go to my mom’s for Thanksgiving where my dad will take my boys to go pick out a Christmas tree! Meanwhile, mom and I will pull out all of her other decorations. She does it big time! No, they’re not the Griswalds, but they have a festive house.
This coming weekend we’ll do Thanksgiving at mom’s and then head up to PA to spend Sunday with Fred’s parents and his kids for a second Thanksgiving. I’m hoping we’ll have the chance to do some decorating at his house. As for our house, right now I have a wreath.
I’m sorry, I don’t just have a ‘wreath’, I have a gorgeous, live wreath. At this point, I don’t care what else I come up with to get into the spirit of the holidays. This wreath has me completely satisfied. It’s absolutely gorgeous! I saw an email come through from Creekside Farms about their wreaths. I’d never considered getting a live wreath. Honestly, I didn’t know what the big difference was, but figured now was as good a time as any to learn. I emailed right away asking if I could review one and add it to our holiday giveaway.
My Berries & Moss Wreath arrived mid week last week. Let me say, I’ve been educated…liberated. I don’t know that I could ever go back to an artificial wreath. When I opened my box, it had the best fragrance! Nothing compares to that aroma at the holidays! I’ve heard of people getting something like a bouquet of flowers in the mail and them not looking at all like what they saw online. I can tell you for sure and for certain that the wreath I received is exactly how it looked online!
The Berries & Moss Wreath is a blend of fresh fir and seeded eucalyptus. Pine cones, moss, Artemisia, and pepperberries surround it as well. The moss is so squishy! I think it’s my favorite part of the wreath. Yes, I received my wreath the week of Thanksgiving. Yes, Christmas is a month away. Not a problem with the Creekside Farms Wreath.Once their wreaths are dried out, they’re supposed to last 6 months to a year!
Now, I have to admit, and my boys have caught me doing this, every time I go outside, I breathe in the fragrance of the wreath. Really, not kidding it smells that fabulous! Trust me, you wish you had smell-o-vision. Maybe scratch ‘n sniff. I’m really happy to have this up on our front door. Makes me wish I had one of those grand, red doors on the front of the house.
The wheels in my brain have already been spinning as I looked through all of the wreathes. One to welcome spring, for the 4th of July, and maybe one day, one for a wedding! Hey, I’m allowed to dream. =)
