Farmhouse Friday: Fall Decorating With Boxwood Wreaths

October 20, 2017

We all know that boxwood wreaths are a staple farmhouse decor item. Often we see them displayed around Christmas time. But today, as part of my Farmhouse Friday series, I want to show you an easy way to use boxwood wreaths in your fall decor.

{NOTE: This is a sponsored post. I was given product in exchange for my honest review. You can read more about my disclosure policy here.}

I am a HUGE fan of boxwood wreaths. Don't tell anyone but I think at last count I had 5 of them (sshhh), in a few different sizes ranging from small to rather large. I use them all over the house to add a fresh element of color and texture to a room. You can imagine how thrilled I was, then, to be asked by my friends at PermaLeaf® to review one of their products and share it with you. Despite the fact that they have SO many products to choose from, my choice was obvious: boxwood wreaths! 


Here it is once it arrived, safely encased in its own protective box. While PermaLeaf® has come out with a line of faux outdoor plants that are extremely lifelike and can withstand the elements, my preserved boxwood wreath is best kept indoors, or at least under some kind of roof covering if left outdoors.

Initially I was going to decorate one for Christmas, but I caught the fall decor bug and just had to use it (for now) in a fall vignette. Isn't it gorgeous? My absolute favorite blue pumpkin and white baby boo pumpkin sitting amisdt the bright green leaves of my new boxwood wreath: L.O.V. E.. So simple, yet such a perfect fall display featuring all natural elements.

As I was "getting my feet wet," I combined the blue and white pumpkins with some pine cones collected from the yard.

Gathering natural elements from the yard is so easy to do and, obviously, so inexpensive. What's not to like?

 After playing around a bit I ended up adding some small orange pumpkins and a few more baby boos. I don't say it often, but I do believe I hit a home run on this one.

While the lovely 17" wreath steals the show, I do believe the tobacco basket I placed it in adds a lovely element of contrasting color and texture as well.

I really can't get enough of this. Every time I see it I can't help but smile!

The real beauty of this wreath is that I can take it out of this vignette and hang it right up for Christmas! I can't wait to decorate it for the holidays! (Be on the lookout for it in upcoming posts.)

Finally, I'd like to thank my friends at PermaLeaf® for allowing me to review this gorgeous wreath. I'll be enjoying its beauty for a long time to come.

Well, that's it until next time, friends!

I never thought about using a wreath like that, but I am seeing more people doing it. I actually love the idea. Your arrangement is so pretty and very nice for fall.

Ooo, how pretty! The wreath makes a perfect base for your Fall arrangement! Love it. I'm going to go check out PermaLeaf and see what they have (I have yet to purchase a boxwood wreath as I haven't found one I like). Thanks for sharing!

You're right; I would leave that arrangement up til after Thanxgiving, then use the wreathe for Christmas; might use the pine cones again, too! The arrangement is simple but the different colors and textures are awesome together. I have a simple boxwood "Christmas" tee about 11" tall that I just love although it is rather ignored at times! Greenery in the dead of winter is a NECESSITY! Winter in Maine is ENDLESS and green helps!

You hit a homer with this one Kathleen! A really pretty vignette. I love everything about it! The wreath looks so real.

How pretty! I love using wreaths as centerpieces!

I love this wreath! Beautiful with the tobacco basket and pumpkins. This is so versatile, you can use it for a long time!

I meant to ask, do you wash and bake pinecones you get from your yard? I have had a coal bucket full of huge ones in my house for at least a year. Then I read about all the bugs that might be in them!! Too late now!! LOL

Your wreath fits perfectly in the tobacco basket vignette. Thanks for sharing at Snickerdoodle. Pinning.
