As a Californian, I consider two wreaths to be pretty festive, but in the other parts of the United States and Europe, wreaths adorning each window and door is a common sight. Whether you use one wreath or a dozen, you want something that is beautiful, well-made, and will last for many seasons to come.
Balsam Hill's business is artificial holiday greenery: trees, garlands and wreaths. They know what they're doing, and customers have come back throughout the years to add to their collections.
Crimson Harvest Christmas Wreath by Balsam Hill
Balsam Hill's Crimson Harvest is not a $5 wreath you pick up at the drug or hardware store and festoon with all of the ribbon, bows, ornaments and knicknacks it can hold. Balsam Hill is a company that's exclusively in business to make holiday trees, wreaths and garlands. And they do a superb job. The Crimson Harvest and other Balsam Hill wreaths are among the best-quality artificial holiday foliage I've ever seen or inspected up close.
The Crimson Harvest is embellished with natural pine cones, twigs, faux cranberries and baby pomegranates. It's made of flame-retardant and non-allergenic materials and is a combination of Balsam Hill's Classic Needle and Pine Needle PVC tips.
Toasted Champagne Gold? It may sound like a New Year's Eve concoction, but this particular gold is fabulously ungawdy gold. It has that cool, subtle appeal like something from the early 1960s, but updated with all of today's modern tricks, including tiny white lights instead of those midcentury-era "gigantic" C7 and C9-size bulbs. Find out other reasons why you might want to check out this champagne beauty.
Don't let the name -- Christmas Island -- fool you. This wreath is suitable for any late fall or winter holiday: Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, New Year's. Made by Floral Treasure, it is handcrafted with shells and has a fresh, subtle scent of evergreens.
