Christmas is a time for family, friends, and decorations! One of the most popular Christmas decorations is the fresh evergreen wreath. Holiday greenery, like noble fir wreaths, swags, garland, and Christmas trees, have been a part of Christmas tradition for centuries, and there are many different ways to display them. Here, we will discuss the history of wreaths and show you how to order a fresh Christmas wreath that will add a new twist to your holiday decor!
The history of wreaths dates back to ancient times. Wreaths were initially made from evergreen plants and symbolized strength and endurance. The word "wreath" comes from the Old English word "writha," which means "circle." Wreaths were often used as crowns or status symbols in ancient Rome. Wreaths were also used as funeral decorations in ancient Greece. It was not until the 16th century that wreaths became associated with Christmas.
While you can always shop on Amazon or Wayfair for cheap holiday decorations, if you want natural, hand-crafted, quality wreaths, Lynch Creek Farm is the place to go. We are a family-owned and operated business and we’ve been hand making fresh Christmas wreaths for over 30 years. Our fresh-cut wreaths are made from noble fir which are Fraser fir like branches and adorned with natural pinecones, red berries, fresh greens, and ribbons. With such a wide variety, from boxwood wreaths, berry wreaths, floral wreaths, and fresh boxwood wreaths to greenery wreaths and lavender wreaths, there is no shortage of choices for your front door or holiday decor this season.
If you are interested in ordering a fresh Christmas wreath, you should keep a few things in mind.
First, choose a size that will fit well with the rest of your holiday decorations. You'll want to make sure the wreath is proportional to the space it will be hung in and matches your current home decor. Our standard 26” wreaths are perfectly sized for front doors. The Touch of Holly wreath is a perfect example of a beautiful 26” size wreath for Christmas. Most of our wreaths, including the Premium Red, also come in a stunning 32” size that works well in larger spaces such as big walls, fences, and barns.
