What are Christmas Wreaths made from?
Evergreens are most traditionally used, such as pine branches or holly. Pine Has that distinct woodland smell to it, and florists use this commonly for the natural fragrance. The wreath can be decorated with other items such as pine cones, ivy, berries, dried fruits, natural twigs, cinnamon sticks, babbles, ribbon - the list goes on. Wreaths are perfect for adding a touch of personality, as local florist can bespoke make them in the colours, textures and scents at your request. So whether to compliment your beautiful red front door or in corporate colours, the Wreath is beautifully tailor made.

The word 'Wreath' derives from an English word meaning 'to twist'. The meaning behind Christmas Wreaths can be viewed in several different ways. The most popular being its circular shape represents eternity, the unending circle of life. Evergreens were used as a symbol of growth and everlasting life.
How to look after your Wreath
- If not displaying immediately, store your Wreath in a cool place with air ventilation and in its plastic liner. This helps keep the greenery fresh and captures the moisture.
