I've given this to my mother-in-law in Florida to send her love from the PNW. This fits nicely in her small apartment, but still brings back the wonderful smells and great memories of her Christmases when she lived in Washington.
This centerpiece is the best for us because it leaves room for all the food to sit on the table as well. It always has a scent that goes long after Christmas.
I have been giving this to my aunts for years. They last through all of December and beyond.
Family west and east, what to do about Christmas? It's not as if they can't get holiday decor, but from the first year they were charmed. "Smells great!" "Nifty to open the door and find my glorious centerpeice!" "Are you sending this prize EVERY YEAR?" Yes, lovies.
`I send centerpieces at Christmastime to family members who live all over the United States. I have used several different companies, but by far the best is Lynch Creek Farms. They are the freshest and most fragrant of any I have gotten. They last for weeks. Our family grew up not far from Lynch Creek Farms, so their products truly are that piece of home we all cherish.
