Every year we say we’re going to get a live tree. Then we realize we’d have to keep it alive for 5 weeks, clean up needles every day, and hope it doesn’t spark anyone’s allergies. So I always end up pulling out the trusty artificial tree and declaring, ‘Maybe next year.’
But I grew up with a live tree, and really love the smell, so we’ve agreed on a compromise….fresh wreaths, garlands and stems! Usually I bring in cuttings from the yard, and raid the discard bin at Home Depot’s Christmas Tree tent (did you know they have piles of branches for FREE?!), but this year I had the opportunity to choose from the most gorgeous selection at The Wreath Depot.
I had a hard time choosing (who’s surprised by that?!), but finally decided on the Pomegranates & Cinnamon Wreath, and we’re currently using it as a centerpiece on our dining table. Having fresh greens arrive at your doorstep is like Christmas came early.
The wreath is so full, and beautifully made.
It makes a gorgeous centerpiece with a hurricane candle in the middle, or hung from a door.
I also got the Berkley Holiday Mantelpiece, which looks amazing on our piano.
It would also look great on a mantel, or as a table centerpiece. I feel like Oprah over here, with all this fresh greenery!
Can you smell the Christmas cheer in my house?! Let’s get to the fun part for you guys…the giveaway!
The kind people at The Wreath Depot are giving one of you lucky ducks $75 shop credit to order anything you like. We’ll end the giveaway this Thursday night so the winner can have fresh greens in their home in time to enjoy this season. Good luck, lovebugs!
