My delivery men always get a nice reception at my house. The kids and I all get excited when we see the UPS or Fed Ex truck pull up out front. We can’t wait to tear into the packages and find out what is inside! Some packages are, obviously, more exciting than others.
Last week, one of those “extra exciting” packages arrived, via Fed Ex. I was careful when opening this one because I knew what was inside. I couldn’t wait to see it and to hang it on my front porch. . .
Have you ever had a live wreath? This is the second time we’ve had one, and I just love them! This one came from Wreaths of Maine and, not only is it beautiful, it is so well put together. It’s very full and thick and constructed of lovely, healthy greenery (no brown stuff here!). The “extras” give it a nice touch, I think. The bow came packaged inside the wreath (so it wouldn’t get flattened during delivery) – it was very simple to attach it to the wreath with the wires. I already had a nail on my porch, so I attached the wreath to that – took about 2 seconds and the results are gorgeous!
Living in the northeast (PA, to be exact), and having a front porch that only gets the morning sun, I know a live wreath can last all winter long here. That makes it totally worth the pricetag, in my opinion!
I was out shopping for a Christmas tree this weekend, and had opportunity to look at and price some Christmas wreaths as well. I could have spent anywhere from $25 to $50 dollars on a store-bought wreath that was not nearly this thick and full and made from plastic (or other fake parts). Sure, they might last from year to year (if properly stored), but they look cheap and somewhat tacky too.
Wreaths of Maine offers a variety of wreath styles, ranging in price from $31 to $42 dollars. In addition to the wreaths, they also have a swag, a spray, and pine roping available. They’re all beautiful and made from fresh-cut greenery. And the best part – they are made right here in the good old US of A!
As if the aromatic, balsam fir wreaths weren’t enough in and of themselves, there’s more . . .
Wreaths of Maine offers a great fundraiser program for homeschoolers (or anyone, really). If you’ve got a young entrepeneur in your home – or a group that’s looking to make some extra cash – you should definitely look into this fundraising opportunity. You can go door-to-door, selling wreaths, and earning commissions. This would be a super homeschool project for your kids – teaching them social skills and small business – as well as giving them some extra holiday money. Wreaths of Maine supplies all the paperwork you need for a successful fundraiser, including full-color brochures and carbon order forms. I’d highly recommend this, and hope to use this fundraiser in our homeschool next fall.
