Fresh Christmas Greens by Diane Pfeifle

I've been feeling super spoiled the past day. Super, super, duper spoiled actually. Seriously. I love, love, LOVE fresh greens for Christmas. Last year I bought a 25ft. fresh garland from Costco and made wreaths and a garland for our door. I LOVED them! But they took.for.EVER! And what a mess. Wowza. :-)

Today I have the pleasure to share how you can have fresh, beautiful holiday greens for your home, whether shipped or decorated by the wonderfully sweet Diane Pfeifle of Hoh River, WA.

I contacted Diane through a Craigslist ad for her wreaths because they looked like just what I was looking for at a great price. Through various correspondence, Diane agreed to come and decorate our home with fresh greens in exchange for a review. Let me tell you right off the bat, she is fantastic and I truly love what she did in our home.



First of all, one thing in particular I love is that she has a direct
collaboration with local logging sources, and collects
leftover greens from downed trees that would
otherwise just be burned.
How great is that?!


When Diane arrived at our home, I gave her free
reign to do whatever she wanted. We decided to decorate
our banister and three large windows with wreaths.
(This is valued at $60)




She really took the time to make sure everything
looked just right and added beautiful details
to each piece she decorated.




I already am in love with the scent filling our house!




All of the three wreaths in our dining room windows
are a little bit different, but coordinate perfectly with
each other. Diane had everything from wire,
to ribbon, and filler pieces ready to go.




I love these little birdies...I told my girls
there is one for each of them. ;-)




She made and added many of these bows
right then and there to the wreaths.




Here is another detail picture.




And all three of the wreaths in the windows.

I love seeing them in our space. I'm used to spending SO
much time making everything I decorate with, so
it's still a bit strange to walk around the corner and
see everything done and decorated!


Thank you Diane!
