I don’t know about you, but I love Christmas wreaths – silvery and frosted or deep red berries, glam or natural looking, I simply can’t resist them!
When walking the neighbourhood around Christmas time, or visiting people’s houses, I love looking at all the different designs on people’s doors or inside the home, on a wall or mantelpiece.
So I thought I’d do a quick round up of the most fabulous ones I’ve seen this season and where you can buy them:
First up, this lovely White Berry Wreath from Rose & Grey, £22 – a good imitation, this understated, natural style wreath looks like it could be homemade after a wintry forest walk. As you can see it’s muted colour stands out against a dark background.
If you prefer a wreath with more colour, this one from M&S is a good buy – realistic looking and it will add a nice pop of festive red. With 50% off at the moment, it’s just £17.50 – and part of the 3 for 2 deal, so that’s a great offer.
This following minimal design is a faux antler wreath from Cox & Cox; something a bit different from the norm. Made of resin, you would need to add the lights separately. Very Scandi-style. Would look nice hung above a fireplace for a log cabin feel.
Oh I do like a frosty door wreath, so this one from Idyll Home is my cup of tea and is a very reasonable £21:
For something more opulent, how about a gold wreath that you can use either on the door or as part of a glam table setting. This one is from John Lewis and at £45 isn’t the cheapest – but if you had an old wreath left over from previous years you could spray paint it gold for a new look.
For a faux wreath that looks totally realistic, you might want to check out Balsam Hill. Again, not the cheapest around, but great quality and you can opt to have them lit or unlit (although I found the batteries ran down quickly on ours from last year so you need to remember to switch off manually or use the timer).
For something a little more boho and arty, look at this beautiful feather wreath – those deep teal ostrich feathers are stunning. It’s certainly very different and eyecatching, but probably one for the indoors to keep it looking good for years – oh and there’s currently 50% off! Should be £69, now £34.50 from Ella James via Not On The High Street (where there are many lovely designs from different sellers if you do a general search on Christmas wreaths).
The Scandi-lover in me is quite taken with this simple brass ring on a nude leather hook with a leather tie – you can add your own foliage to it, so it would be lovely for all seasons. From Skandivis and there’s 10% off today making the large one £20.70:
For those who would rather have a fresh wreath with real foliage, you could make your own, or buy a ready made one from your local nursery or florist shop or online. This woodland and berry wreath is a beauty with 20% off at the moment, making it £36, again through Not On The High Street.
Finally, this is the same wreath as in the top image, a Eucalyptus and Winter Berry design from The White Company. A bit pricey at £50, but very beautiful and natural looking – I love the blackcurrent coloured berries on this one, it’s certainly a wreath you could use year after year and not tire of it:
So any particular favourites amongst them that stand out? Modern or traditional, frosty or blingy? Or do you prefer to make your own for free from the garden? If you happen to have spotted a real beauty for sale that I haven’t included in my round up, do share!
