Christmas wreaths to wow the neighborhood

'A Christmas Wreath on your front door really adds the finishing touch to your home,' says Jack Anderson, assistant plant manager at Squire's Garden Centers

'Choose a real wreath adorned with cinnamon sticks and pine cones or an artificial wreath, some of which even come with LED lights wrapped around them to twinkle on your front door.'

1. Awake the senses with a herb wreath

Fresh Rosemary Wreath | $68.00 from Anthropologie

It's not Christmas without the smell of pine needles, cinnamon, and clove-heavy mulled wine, or the zesty fragrance of oranges and clementines. Let's also not forget the gorgeous scent of fresh herbs on your roast Turkey and trimmings.

So add an aromatic touch to your front door, Christmas porch decor, or indoor living spaces with this densely woven verdant wreath.

Ideal for both indoor and outdoor spaces, this wreath will last anything from 2 weeks to 2 months dependent on the climate and conditions. Just don't start cutting branches off for your roast potatoes, as it isn't suitable for human consumption!

2. Add a modern twist with a gold metal wreath

If there's ever a time for glitz and glam... it's at Christmas. So swap your flora foliage for a brass Christmas wreath, exclusively from CB2. Just like a 24-carat necklace that adorns your decolletage, treat your interiors to a lavish, gold-colored metallic decoration.

We'd style this just as this Christmas living room looks. Mid-century modern furniture, an animal print rug, and lots of wooden to complement the warm finish of this fixture.

The traditional Christmas decor we know and love gets a fresh update with a plume of olive green feathers this season.

Festive enough on its own, this fluffy wreath from CB2 will add opulence to any door, wall, or window. But, if you are going for a bit of Christmas maximalism, style it into a grand centerpiece with decor, ribbon, and ornaments for 1920's Gatsby vibes.

We particularly love these glass and brass tree decorations which ooze an Art-Deco-inspired aesthetic.

And, as this is a natural feather product, you can expect to see some slight color variation for that bespoke, but still beautiful look. Not suitable for vegans.
