Welcome Party: the best Christmas wreaths

Traditionally hung on the front door to greet guests during advent, the Christmas wreath has had a modern overhaul.

So while it is fun to gather holly, mistletoe, pine cones and other greenery and natural finds from the forest floor (or local park) to make your own Christmas wreath – if you don't fancy contorting a wire coat hanger into shape, or if time is short – those in our edit will provide a charming ready-made festive welcome.

See the trends for Christmas gifting in 2019.

No longer just evergreen, this year's crop of festive garlands encompass pine cones, peacock feathers, lights, baubles and berries. There are simple, minimalist options too – these can be left beautifully bare for a pared-back approach or adorned with your own decorations or festive foliage, if you want to personalise or customise them.

Check out these Christmas Decorating ideas from Wild at Heart's Nikki Tibbles.

Many of the Christmas wreaths in our edit would make a beautiful table centrepiece, too. Decorate with a pillar candle in the middle, fairy lights, sprigs of holly or anything else you feel like getting creative with for a Christmas table with flair.

These wreaths also look fabulous perched on a mantlepiece over the fireplace and wonderful hung on walls or propped up on a sideboard or drinks trolley too, so indulge in some seasonal spirit and create a Christmas scheme that's both cheerful and chic, indoors and out.
