Remember I told you earlier this week that I threw out lots of our fake Christmas garland this year? My motivation was in the form of this fresh cedar garland that arrived on my doorstep from Lynch Creek Farm. Besides what I’ve clipped from our yard, I’ve never decorated with fresh greenery for the holidays, but I might officially be hooked.
The smell is unbelievable, of course, and I think it helps me to forget we didn’t even bother with getting a live tree this year. They told me that this garland typically lasts six weeks if kept inside and spritzing it every few days is recommended. Since I rarely buy any new Christmas decorations, I’m thinking of making this a new tradition in our house each year.
I also used their larger blended bay wreath in our foyer and layered it right over the botanical prints:
And, for the front door, I used the “bah humbug” wreath. I like how the striped burlap bow adds a little color.
Fresh wreaths also make great, easy gifts. They ship them in a box that includes directions for care and a card with a gift message to the recipient. And, it instantly smells like Christmas when they open it:
