Fresh Christmas Wreaths

As part of a fundraiser for my local pre-school I’ve been selling Christmas wreaths. This kind of thing is fairly new to me but I had so much fun doing it.

As someone who’s new to the neighbourhood it was a great opportunity to get to know people. I knocked on doors around the area and sold beautiful, fresh wreaths and for a good cause too! Most neighbours invited me in, sat me down infront of their cosy fires and offered me tea, or wine or eggnog or both! I got to see inside some homes that I’d never been in and now I feel like I really do know my neighbours better.

When the wreaths arrived I enlisted some help to help me deliver them.

And we took a lovely family walk delivering our Christmas goodies. It almost felt like bringing a gift. And if no-one was home we even hung them on the door for them – now that’s service!

There is something special about fresh greenery on the door at Christmas. It’s so inviting and colourful and smells wonderful too. Christmas is my very favourite time of year!

    The wreaths look beautiful and it seems like it was a great way to get to know your new neighborhood. I agree with you that the fresh greenery just screams the holidays! I love going to the store right now and see all the greenery sitting outside the door.

    Ohhh, ever so slighty jealous yet again of your new life :) It just seems like that you are living a true American dream. Your wreaths are gorgeous too – you have shamed me!!!

    Your wreaths are beautiful. It looks like a lovely neighbourhood and sounds very friendly!

    I’ll be back to read your blog as I’m a keen gardener-to-be.

    Happy Christmas!
