Wreaths are traditionally used to celebrate Christmas but are sometimes used year round as household ornaments. Wreaths are similar to garlands but are ring-shaped rather than straight. They are made from a variety of materials including leaves, dried-fruit and cones and are frequently hung on doors and mantelpieces.
Advent wreaths are those traditionally seen at Christmas and represent the coming of Christ. They are often made from evergreen and accompanied by candles and can make an attractive table decoration.
Harvest wreaths can be seen year-round and are an important symbol for many communities. Harvest wreaths are colourful and bright and can be likened to ourTwig and Berry Wreath. They often include autumn colourings such as orange and red to presents autumn and the harvest season.
Did you know that the history of wreaths dates back hundreds of years? In ancient Greek and Roman times, wreaths were used to represent a person’s stature and occupation and the materials used to make them were said to carry specific meanings. Oak leaves for example were thought to signify wealth.
