Christmas Wreaths Information
The use of Christmas wreath as a part of seasonal decorations has its origin in European pagan festivities coming down from times even before the birth of Jesus Christ. However holiday season presently derives lot of momentum from these practices now forming part of the main Christmas Celebrations.
Being a part of the set of traditional Christmas Ornaments these beautifully crafted and made by hand (if natural) decoration brings forth freshness to the holiday seasons fun.
Christmas wreaths come in a variety of designs and shapes. However traditionally these are Circular in shape. Primarily these can be fresh or Synthetic. The fresh item which is more pleasing on the eye but priced higher will lift the Christmas spirit as perhaps only a gaily decorated natural Christmas tree of fresh balsam bough could. It brings freshness to the whole theme of decorations giving it a rich feeling. If you are looking for impressiveness it is the Fresh wreath you have to look for.
You may find Fresh Christmas wreaths commercially available as;
• Those wreaths with Gold colored pine cones and a maroon bow of velvet
• Traditional design Wreaths with pine cones and berries and no bow.
• Those with white tipped pine cones and with a red water proof velvet bow thrown in.
• Plain wreath with only a Red bow
• Tear Drop shaped Wreath of balsam with a red bow of velvet
• Ones with tiny LED lights embedded for that exclusive effect.
Functionally the wreaths could be to;
• As an ornament on the Christmas Tree
• Wall and Mantle decoration
• As a tribute to dear departed close ones who would not be home for this Christmas.
Again the wreaths would be classified according the region of origin and the plant material used.
As for the sizes the standard is Circular pattern with an approximate diameter of 12 inches. The thickness could be anything around 4 inches. The tear drop shaped could be about 27 inches long and 16 inches wide. Here too the thickness could be about 4 inches. Each design offers you a variety of choices to get the right feeling of your Christmas décor.
One important factor we must not forget when selecting Christmas wreath is that, these should last the Holiday season. Naturally one would expect the manufacturers to look in to this and take action appropriately. Ask them and make sure before you make the commitment.
In spite of being natural some retailers offer ones with somewhat dry textured foliage, so due to processing or age. These do not have the feel of the “fresh off tree” feeling and also do not last that long. So be choosy when you want to buy Christmas Wreaths! Luckily now these can be ordered on line unlike in the days gone by. The items would be shipped generally overland by courier services and will reach you in no time.
