“Adding a touch of misted cones and frosted silver foliage is lovely in any Christmas wreath. Misted white foliage, decorations and even adding a blush or white velvet bow can give it a more luxe feel. Our White Christmas wreath is the perfect example.” – Ronny Colbie, founder of Ronny Colbie
Flowers & Foliage
“People use all sorts of colours to transform their homes at this time of year, so don’t feel like you have to be a slave either to trends or tradition – just make sure your wreath reflects your personal style. A note on using dark, wintery hues in your wreath: while they’re certainly seasonally appropriate, if your door is also dark and not well lit, your wreath is likely to become lost or completely hidden come 4pm. For this reason, it might be worth adding something brighter – be it a pretty winter white ribbon or even some actual fairy lights – to lift the look.” – Sue Barnes, LavenderGreen.co.uk
“No Christmas wreath would be complete without some red berries against rich green foliage. I tend to go for rose hips, but hypericum berries are another popular choice – different reds in uniform shapes. Ilex berries are also a good, although not as uniform and rounded as hypericum, giving a more branching display of red berries. Foliage wise, red berries look particularly good in a mix of pine, ivy, eucalyptus and viburnum. Berries can last well for several weeks if they are regularly misted with water to keep them hydrated; it also helps if their stems are tucked into the base of a wreath made with damp moss.” – Rosebie Morton, The Real Flower Company
“These days, you’ll find lots of wreaths come with extra floral elements, while others are entirely foliage based. It really comes down to personal preference, but if you like a classic look, opt for foliage styles that also use lots of pinecones and berries. For a more modern approach, eucalyptus is really popular right now, especially as the dominant element in a wreath.” – Whitney Bromberg-Hawkings, FLOWERBX
Citrus & Spice
“Scent is one of the most crucial factors in Christmas décor and your wreath is no exception. For me, the scent of the season is full of rich orange and sweet cinnamon – most authentic and even faux wreaths will be infused with some sort of scent (often with dried fruits and cinnamon sticks) but a gentle room spray can also work wonders to prolong the fragrance as the season develops.” – Whitney Bromberg-Hawkings, FLOWERBX
