Have you heard of Creekside Farms? How have I missed them, up to now? I was recently given the opportunity to select a wreath from their online store to review and after poring over the online catalog, and tearfully whittling my selection to only one, of course I selected the gorgeous Fresh Winter Wreath, even though I was advised that many of the fresh items used to make it weren’t quite in season. You know me. Make up my mind and full steam ahead. Oy! Of course the wreath arrived beautifully secured in its shipping carton and looked absolutely gorgeous for around 48 hours and then shriveled, crumbled and lost it’s luster, just as I was warned might happen. I cannot express to you how grateful I am for the grace and mercy of this wonderful company for taking a second chance on this foolish blogger and allowing me to pick a different wreath, so I could complete my review. How awesome is that? In dealing with them, I have gotten nothing but the feeling that customer satisfaction is a top priority (even when the customer is “difficult” 🙂 ) and that their concern is that the highest quality, natural products go out bearing their name. Plus, they are great about sharing information and advice when it is needed. You won’t believe the gorgeous variety they have available for your Fall and Holiday decorating and gift giving. Just wait until you see the GORGEOUS Aromatic Herb Wreath I am sharing in this review and that will be the prize in the giveaway, featured below!
I played around with the Aromatic Herb Wreath, in much the same way, when it arrived. I’m so pleased with the looks, quality and fragrance of this wreath. Walking buy it still sends the fragrant scents of fresh dill and lavender through my senses and when the ceiling fan is on, it wafts through the room. Love it! Creekside Farms takes great care in creating their natural, artisanal wreaths and their attention to detail and quality are extraordinary. Many of the wreaths also have coordinating swags available for even greater decorating flexibility and variety. Not only would they ALL be fabulous adorning the walls of my home, but I think they would make exceptional gifts, as well.
I laid the wreath next to a painting my mom had done for us, as I thought the colors might coordinate well in a wall grouping. It turns out they really would, but I couldn’t land on the perfect wall.
And in keeping with tradition, I even tried it on the front door, which is good, but the wreath was actually a little to thick for the space. Each time I closed the door, the wreath would press up against the screen door and you and I both know a dried arrangement can’t withstand that kind of pressure for very long. I needed a spot with maximum viewing potential, where the fresh aroma could be enjoyed and where the beauty would be preserved.
I finally found the wreath it’s perfect spot, when I gathered up various fall-type items from closets and spots around the house and then incorporated all of them, along with the wreath, into an Autumn Fireplace Mantle makeover. I love “shopping” the house for items to put together in a completely new way and the feeling I get from having “fresh” decorations.
