    Those are really lovely wreaths! I grew up with Lindsay Olives in the Central Valley of CA- how neat that they make wreaths with branches from their orchards.

    My favorite holiday decorations are all of the tree ornaments I’ve received as gifts over the years. My grandmothers each gave me a new ornament each year and it is so wonderful to decorate my tree with them and tell my sons about each ornament as we unwrap and hang it on the tree.

    I actually have two favorite Christmas decorations. One is the Family Life Nativity set I have for my grandkids to play with as we tell each other the story of Christmas. The second are my Christmas wreaths. I love to hang them up right after Thanksgiving. They’re an easy way to decorate which is nice for me, since I stay so busy as a Sandwich Generation senior home care giver and grandma. :)

    my favorite holdiay decoration is a small music box form Italy with the manger and Mary, Joseph, and the Baby Jesus. It is a keepsake and will passed down when I go home to heaven. When my children were younger I also started a small collection for them at Christmas of gifting them with Christmas music boxes…nice small wooden ones that could be displayed all year.

    I LOVE this Olive Branch wreath… it is beautiful both as a centerpiece and a wreath.
