Wreath Care

How do we say hello to winter (and - who are we kidding - spring, summer, and fall, too!) here at Farmgirl Flowers? With a gorgeous wreath or garland of course! We don’t think there is any better way to greet the season than with some festive foliage or beautiful, branchy bits. And now that you’re the proud owner of one of our signature holiday wreaths or garlands, we wanted to make sure you had all of our top tips and tricks to keep your new décor looking dashing all season long!

Give it a Zhush!

We boxed this statement piece up tightly for transit - so upon arrival release your garland or wreath from its cramped quarters! Once it’s out of the box, work your fingers gently into its fluffy bits and give it a zhush!

Cut + Dry

This wreath or garland was made by hand, with heart just for you! And since it’s impossible to ship these festive friends with a water source, drying is a natural and inevitable part of its life cycle. What can you expect as your wreath or garland ages? Look for color changes, changes in size (especially in foliage-full versions) and a developing crispiness. While we’ve carefully selected foliage, bits, and other elements that look gorgeous fresh out of the box or dried, these changes in color, texture, and size are normal and to be expected as part of your garland or wreath lifecycle!

It’s Always Sunny

Excessive exposure to sunlight will cause your wreath or garland to show those signs of drying we talked about earlier much faster! Whether indoors or out, your foliage will dry much faster if left exposed to direct sunlight for prolonged periods. Our best advice? Find a spot to keep it that is out of direct light and heat!

Pro Tip: If you want to luxuriate in the lushness of the design right out of the box, keep your decor in a cool, shaded location. For some, this may not be the front door. Try hanging your festive, foliage in an entryway, above your sofas or dining tables, or even above your bed! Want to go the extra mile? If you’ve received an all foliage wreath or garland, lightly spritzing the leaves with water will refresh it!
