Create A Festive Welcome – Our Guide To Choosing The Perfect Christmas Wreath

Nothing starts the festive period like a beautiful Christmas wreath on your front door. This is the time of year when most of us enjoy welcoming family and friends to our homes so why not make a festive first impression.

This year, wreaths are more popular than they’ve ever been and they’re available in a stunning selection of styles and sizes. You can choose a statement piece bursting with fresh evergreen foliage and decorated with sparkles and frosting, or you could go off-piste with an artificial wreath made of dazzling sleigh bells. There’s an option for every front door whatever its style.

Christmas has its own aroma – the woody scent of pine, the sweetness of viburnum, skimmia and rosehips. These beautiful, natural plants come together in a Christmassy wreath that’s available in mini, medium and large to suit all door shapes and sizes.

How long does a natural wreath last?

With the right care and attention natural wreaths should last for at least three weeks and probably longer – that’s the full twelve days and beyond. If you order a natural wreath but don’t want to hang it immediately, keep it in a plastic liner it to retain moisture, and in a cool, dark place. Keep the liner open to allow a little air inside.

Hydrating Your Wreath

If your wreath is hanging outside, you won’t need to water it. If you’re keeping your wreath indoors and you’ve got the central heating on then you should spritz every couple of days!

  • Before hanging, simply lay your greens wreath in a couple of inches of water, for an hour or two, so the cut stems can get an initial drink
  • After it’s displayed, spritz your indoor wreath with water every few days, or whenever you notice it looks dry

Avoid Direct Sun

It’s best to keep your natural wreath out of direct sunlight and away from fires and radiators. Away from heat sources, your green wreath should last at least three to four weeks, perhaps longer in truly cold climates.

Indoor Display

You don’t have to hang your natural Christmas wreath outdoors for the whole time. You could bring it inside to decorate your home when you have a party or for the big day only. It can go back outside when your guests have gone to prolong its natural lifespan.

Happy Christmas!
