Countdown to Christmas - Creative Christmas Ideas Every Week!

I am a fake Christmas tree girl all the way but tend to use real wreaths since I can never seem to find real looking ones.

That’s all changed since I discovered the “I need to touch it to make sure it’s not real” wreaths from Balsam Hill.

So when my 36″ Fraser Fir wreath arrived on my door step, of course I had to immediately try out some decorations.

I wanted to focus on putting something in the middle of the wreath so I wouldn’t obscure all of those gorgeous glowing lights.

Look #1 – Vintage Christmas Platter

I saw Mrs. Claus kissing Santa on this 99 cent thrift shop score.

Here’s a close up to show you how life like the needles on the wreath look.

It fooled my hubby and girls!

Balsam Hill wreaths have such life life looking needles!

I couldn’t stop at the wreath.

You’ll see more of what I ordered from Balsam Hill and much, much more on my Christmas House Tour coming in December.
