The Christmas and holiday seasons are here and it’s time to decorate! We're giving you our tips on how to care for your fresh wreaths to ensure they stay fresh and bring you a season (or more) of beauty!
HOW DO I CARE FOR A FRESH WREATH?
Depending on temperature and light exposure, our live wreaths will remain fresh and beautiful for 5-8 weeks. To keep your wreath looking its best, we recommend hanging it outdoors out of direct sunlight. Fresh air will extend the life of the natural product - let it breathe! If hanging your wreath indoors, choose a slightly shaded spot in your home. Keep your wreaths away from heat sources that may dry them out such as direct sunlight, heat vents, fireplaces, holiday lights, and candles. Don’t forget to keep all wreaths away from ignition sources.
Evergreen wreaths, like our Berrylicious & Wintergreen, will absorb moisture through their cut ends. We recommend spraying the back of the wreath with water every 2-3 days to keep them hydrated. This will ensure that your wreath continues to look fresh and smell great. It will also lessen the need for sweeping up needles!
CAN I STORE MY WREATH FOR NEXT YEAR?
Our boxwood wreaths can be dried and will last for a minimum of 4 years if cared for properly. Talk about a gift that keeps on giving! Hang your wreath on a wall inside your home to enjoy it year-round or pack it away for next season. To store for future holidays, first wait until the drying cycle is complete. Then, place your wreath in a box and store it in a cool dry place. Make sure it it is free of any moisture before storage and for good measure you can add a desiccant to the storage bag. Bring it out every year at the holidays to enjoy!
Our evergreen wreaths are meant to be enjoyed for one holiday season.
CAN I PURCHASE HOLIDAY WREATHS FROM MENAGERIE FARM & FLOWER?
Yes! We have three fresh wreath varieties to choose from this holiday season - the Berrylicious Holiday Wreath, the Classic Holiday Boxwood Wreath, and the Wintergreen Holiday Wreath. Whether purchasing for yourself or as a gift, these natural beauties are the perfect addition to your holiday decor!
We hope these tips will help you to enjoy the beauty and fragrance of your fresh wreaths through the holiday season and beyond!
