Creekside Farms creates gorgeous artisanal wreaths out of California. Their herbs and flowers are naturally grown, with no harmful pesticides. All of their products are harvested by hand and naturally air dried. In other words, there's true labor of love in each of their wreaths. Last year I reviewed their Fall Harvest Wreath and still have it hanging up in my back room. And it is still in almost as good condition as it was when I first received it.
For the holiday season, I received the Fragrant Holiday Wreath for review. The wreath itself is made of fresh salal, eucalyptus, and cedar, and accented with white achilia of the pearl, pinecones, and wired red wine ribbon. Truth be told, I don't know what salal or white achilia of the pearl are but they make for a pretty wreath.
The Fragrant Holiday Wreath with secure packaging. Zip ties at the bottom of the kept it from shifting during shipping. Scissors were needed to release the wreath from the box. When the wreath came out, a small portion of leaves came off but it did not hinder the overall look.
The front of the wreath has a beautiful aesthetic balance. It is full and there are no gaps. You can tell it was artfully arranged. The back of the wreath itself has strong rods and pieces to keep it held together and keep its shape.
According to the care instructions, the wreath can last for several years if treated properly. The wreath won't stay fresh for a real long time, but it can still be hung for display once the greenery starts to dry. By misting the wreath with water from time to time and keeping it safe from outside elements, the wreath will be able to create a beautiful greenery piece in my home for some time. I've found this to be true with the other wreath I have from Creekside Farms, and believe it will be the same with this wreath.
