My entire house smells like a fresh evergreen forest and I couldn’t be happier! This year I had the good fortune to receive a wreath from Christmas Forest.
Christmas Forest is a seasonal company in the Pacific Northwest that makes Forest Fresh Christmas Wreaths. Working with nature, they create exquisite noble fir Christmas wreaths from the finest evergreens of the Cascade Mountains.
The beauty and the scent of the wreath are just heavenly as is the hand-crafted detail. Truly it embodies the essence of Christmas. Each design is a one-of-a-kind creation and you can feel the love in each and every one. I also find their outstanding customer service as well as their environmental commitment very impressive.
I loved looking at all the beautiful holiday wreaths at the Christmas Forest site, but, as lovely as they were, they didn’t quite prepare me for the splendor of seeing mine in my home. The wreath came beautifully and carefully packaged from Santa and the Elves and we quickly opened the box.
Immediately, the room was filled with crisp evergreen and I was transported to so many memories of picking out the perfect tree with my family. The wreath was even more beautiful than I could have envisioned, so fresh as though it was newly cut that morning. We received the Jingle Bells Wreath which came filled with lights, bells and colorful ornaments. It also came with a gorgeous red bow which could be added as well. This wreath is 20″ in diameter and really creates a heavenly ambience.
From now on, I will be buying all my wreaths from Christmas Forest, as they are the freshest and most attractive I’ve ever seen or smelled! This is also one of my top holiday gift picks since it is perfect for home or office, for any age, male or female. It brightens and livens up any environment, illuminates the entranceway and provides festivity and cheer to visitors. Wherever you place it, you are bringing in the magic of Christmas.
A little history
Rick and Ramona Holt sold their first Christmas wreath at Pike Place Farmer’s Market in Seattle in 1976. Rick was working in construction and Ramona was a piano teacher at the time. Looking for extra Christmas money to buy Christmas gifts, they harvested cedar boughs to sell to a local nursery. When the owner of the nursery said that he didn’t need the branches after all, the Holts decided to try their hand at making and selling wreaths so the boughs would not be wasted. They worked all night making wreaths and the next morning they sold their first Christmas wreath in Seattle, Washington. That was 38 years ago and now the wreaths of Christmas Forest have decorated thousands of doors around the world.
A Green Christmas
The wreaths from Christmas Forest are a renewable resource. They do not cut down any trees to make them. In the foothills of the Cascade Mountains, they harvest the tips of the branches which promotes the growth of the trees. Trimming the branches of the noble fir tree is actually beneficial to the trees and thus great for the environment.
The aromatic noble fir trees from Washington state are the longest lasting evergreens. These majestic trees are nature’s way of fighting against global warming. Trees take carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere and release oxygen. The process of producing plastic to make artificial wreaths burns fossil fuels while adding carbon dioxide to the atmosphere. Knowing that fresh Christmas wreaths are recyclable, renewable and less of a contributor to global warming, those who are concerned about Mother Earth are choosing a fresh Christmas Forest wreath.
