I received the following product(s) free or discounted in the hopes that I would share my honest opinion. All opinions are my own.
As the cold air is blowing in and the holidays are on their way, it has me in the mood to decorate my home. First impressions are where we start… with a beautiful wreath on the door. Christmas Forest gave me a chance to review one of their handcrafted wreaths straight from the Cascades.
I received a 20″ Jazz-a-Tazz Christmas Wreath. It arrived in a large box. The wreath and the bow were individually wrapped in plastic bags.
The quality was obvious before I even had the wreath fully out of the package. The needles were so perfect that I had to check twice before I believed it was real! Even my husband did a double-take and then had to touch it.
It’s actually really funny that I had to keep checking to make sure the wreath is real because the amazing pine scent was so obvious. I have the wreath hanging on my front door and I can smell that pine from inside the house in our foyer. You’ll definitely get the Christmas holiday spirit walking in our front door!
The decorations are of good quality as well. They are sized just right and attached securely to the wreath. It will hold up to some wind and door opening, but I always recommend keeping any wreaths in a protected area to protect them. The bow is a nice generous size too. It is wired along the edges, so you can adjust it to your liking. I really love the pinecones too. They’re so perfect!
Christmas Forest wreaths vary in cost from $42 to $56. The cost for the Jazz-a-Tazz Christmas Wreath is $49. I have seen much poorer quality wreaths with only a single, sad bow sell for this much locally, so I think the price is excellent for a fresh wreath.
My husband pointed out one thing that I didn’t consider. He would have been bothered by the bow not coming already attached because he feels he lacks the skill to place it. I saw this as an advantage because I could place the bow where I liked and floof it to my liking. In my opinion, I think he… and others… would have found the bow pretty foolproof. 😉 It has a nice long wire to attach to the wreath and it needed very little fixing to look full and pretty.
Overall, I definitely recommend Christmas Forest for your wreath needs. You won’t be disappointed! They also sell garlands, centerpieces, ornaments, and wreath hangers.
Update – One Month Later
A quick follow-up to show you where we are. It has been just shy of a month since we received delivery. We have lost only one solitary needle… and I suspect that was from a visitor brushing against it. It looks just as lovely as the day it arrived. The scent is not quite so strong, but you still get a good pine scent.
Pros: Real, fresh evergreen. Beautifully handcrafted in America. Carefully shipped.
Cons: Some assembly required.
