I absolutely love fresh wreaths. In my opinion, they are just superior to artificial wreaths because they look and smell better. There’s just something about a real wreath on a door that seems welcoming, whereas artificial just seems well, fake. Don’t even get me started on the topic of trees.

Christmas Forest, founded in 1976, is located in the Pacific Northwest, in Washington state. They specialize in making handcrafted holiday wreaths. All of the greens and berries used to make the wreaths are gathered right there in the forests in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. Wreaths are shipped throughout the continental US and to some international countries as well.

I was very excited when the box arrived. How could you not if you like fresh wreaths and see the words Christmas Forest? Just the name makes me think of forests full of pretty trees and that fantastic Christmas scent.

Christmas Forest fresh holiday wreaths

I received a Christmas Classic wreath. The wreaths are hand assembled in Washington before shipping. All you need to do is unwrap the wreath, which is about 20″ in diameter, and attach the giant red velvet bow.

I hung the wreath on my front door. Because I have a storm door, this means the wreath is actually inside my home. From the outside of my house you can see the wreath, which puts a pop of color on the front door with it’s bright greens and bright red bow. I love that the wreath is so full and colorful, artificial wreaths always seem somewhat sparse and washed out.  And because I have a storm door, when the storm door is open you can smell the fantastic scent of the wreath hanging there. It is awesome, and that’s why Christmas Forest wreaths are one of my 2013 Holiday Hits.

I would hang this on my front door. Very pretty

Kim | TwoMomsAndAKid.com November 17, 2013 - 8:51 pm

We have a spot over our fireplace mantel that we usually have a fake wreath hanging over. It’s cool enough that a live one would do great and look beautiful over the nutcrackers!

Maybe we’ll be the lucky ones 🙂
