Christmas Nesting and a ‘Deck the Halls’ Giveaway!


Happy Monday. . . I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday! I spent the weekend decking the halls and enjoying some Christmas nesting on the porch.

To kick off the holiday season, I’m joining 5 other bloggers for a Holiday Home Tour with Lynch Creek Farm and a wonderful giveaway to help you deck the halls and feather your nest!

We enjoy our porch 10 months out of the year and are fortunate to have mostly mild and sunny weather throughout the month of December.

To make things merry and bright on the porch, I added some blankets and books to curl up with for some cozy reading and Christmas inspiration.

Cardinal ornaments have flown in to land in a glittery nest, tucked in among pine cones in a poinsettia-filled basket. . .

And adding a seasonal and vibrant pop of red, to hang from a birdhouse.

And a cardinal-lidded teapot is ready to pour a Christmas blend!

I had a little Christmas nesting inspiration from this Wildlife Adventure Wreath from Lynch Creek Farm, complete with a cardinal perched on a noble fir bough and cheery red bird house!


Lynch Creek Farm wreaths are the freshest in the industry, with fresh evergreens procured from the forests in their backyard of the great Pacific Northwest.

 Evergreens are ancient symbols of strength, protection, prosperity, and long life in the midst of winter and I love the fragrance they lend at Christmas! A combination of Noble fir, white pine, incense cedar and juniper are tied with a plaid bow, paired with pine cones, mixed with faux red berries.

A pair of pillows make for comfortable and cozy nesting, with a bird bundled in a scarf and Santa hat, ready for wintry weather.

Wildlife Centerpiece from Lynch Creek Farm, with glass hurricane and pillar candle, is flanked by two cardinals. A combination of noble fir, white pine, and Western Red, Port Orford, and incense cedar make for a fresh and fragrant centerpiece, complete with a nest, ribbon, pine cones and berry clusters. I added some eggs to the nest and placed the centerpiece on a tree slice charger for a woodland accent.


Lynch Creek Farm is a small, family owned company, dedicated to producing sustainable evergreen products. Evergreen boughs are cultivated by trimming the lower branches of younger, coniferous trees in healthy and robustly forested areas, along the foothills of the Cascade Mountains.


Once a tree matures to 15 – 20 years in age, it is no longer trimmed for boughs. This practice prolongs the lifespan of the woodlands, ensuring they will continue to grow and thrive for decades to come.


I moved the centerpiece to a table to enjoy by the twinkling lights of the tree.

A tartan plaid throw provides a tablecloth with tree slice chargers, accented with bits of greenery to elevate Lenox Winter Greetings plates.

A nuthatch, chickadee, and cardinal are perched among the holiday greenery on the plates, festooned with red ribbon, holly and mistletoe.



Lynch Creek Farm has generously offered my readers a chance to win one of their amazing fresh wreaths or a centerpiece of the winner’s choice.

For a chance to win a wreath or a centerpiece, simply visit Lynch Creek Farm and come back and leave a comment telling me which wreath or centerpiece you would choose.

AND, since all 6 of us have a wreath or centerpiece to give away, you have more 5 more chances to win by visiting my friends on the tour and leaving a them a comment!


This giveaway is open through midnight, Sunday, December 3rd to residents of the continental U.S. and Canada.

Good Luck and Happy Christmas Nesting!

    Mary, as always you have outdone yourself on creating a beautiful, beautiful Holiday table and porch. I find myself (as always) scrolling up and down catching every gorgeous detail. Thank you for also giving us great history of the evergreen. I love that Lynch Creek Farm is family owned and takes pride in creating beautiful, quality products for us to enjoy. I always love seeing your porch decked out for each season, but there is something missing….the girls!!!

  9. November 27, 2017 at 6:49 am

    Mary your porch is perfect with the fresh wreath and centerpiece! Love your cardinal theme that you carried out so beautifully! The Lenox pattern is still one of my faves! Your porch has welcomed the Christmas season!

  10. November 27, 2017 at 6:58 am

    It’s hard to choose from all of the lovely wreaths, but I think I would take the Country Christmas. You did a wonderful job decorating with the theme of the wreath they sent you. Just beautiful.

  11. November 27, 2017 at 6:59 am

    Wow…they all are gorgeous, beautiful and very affordable! I’d choose Pacific Bay…simple elegance! You had a beautiful post today! Thank you once again!

    I was SO impressed with all the selections from Lynch Creek Farm! My husband and I operated Burger’s Christmas Tree Farm for 25 years. We had to give it up because of health reasons. It was hard to decide on a favorite item but I will chose the wreath called Frozen Pine.

    Mary your porch and tablescape are stunning. I am obsessed with cardinals and invite a flock to my own Christmas decor. I found the information about Lynch Creek Farms heartwarming.

  21. Kathy M.
    November 27, 2017 at 7:32 am

    Beautiful porch this year. The site for the farm was fascinating and all their products beautiful. Hard to choose but I think I would pick the Silver Deluxe because I am using lots of mercury glass in my decorating this year.

  22. Linda Goodyear
    November 27, 2017 at 7:33 am

  26. November 27, 2017 at 7:52 am

    What a wonderful find- the Lynch Creek site has some wonderful choices. If I had to narrow it down I’d choose the “Christmas by the Bay” centerpiece as it is so traditional. Thank you for sharing your cozy porch; could cozy up there with a book anytime!

    Love the Holly Hill Basket. Had to laugh as we must drive by there as we stop in Shelton for supplies on our way to our Hoodsport cabin. Can usually spot the neat side trips in a flash–my radar must be broken.

  34. Sue Hartzell
    November 27, 2017 at 8:21 am

    The Country Christmas wreath suits me just fine. Love the red berries. Wildlife was a close second. Birds seem to be taking over my Christmas decorating this year. Your porch is for the birds, and that is a good thing.

  35. November 27, 2017 at 8:22 am

    Good morning Mary,
    Your porch is so festive, cheerful, and inviting. What a blessing you have to enjoy it throughout the year. My choice for a wreath would be “Owl Be Home”. We live in the country and have the enjoyment of hearing owls hoot. I think they’re beautiful birds. This owl wreath with acorns and rustic colors is my cup of tea. Thank you for giving us this opportunity.

    • Joyce
      November 27, 2017 at 8:38 am

      “Owl be home for Christmas” beautiful wreath reminds me of my seeet Mom singing the song while baking Christmas cookies together. This beautiful wreath 🎄made my heart ❤️ Sing🎵. Thanks for the memories👍

  38. Cyndi Raines
    November 27, 2017 at 8:35 am

    Love them all, but I would chose the Wildlife centerpiece or the Wildlife wreath. Cardinals and Chickadees are my favorite birds and with the temperatures dropping, the feeders are in constant use. Your porch is very cozy and welcoming. The outside decorating is complete, today I start on the inside.🎄Thanks for the blog hop.

  39. Cindy A.

  43. November 27, 2017 at 8:49 am

Your table is set beautifully, with your Lenox China on the tartan plaid table covering. What a great giveaway!!! I would choose the Country Wreath, or the Country Sleigh.

    I love the “Mixed Holly” wreath (26 inches). I can almost smell the fragrant pine scent now! This is an awesome giveaway!

    I absolute love your porch all decked out for Christmas/Winter. I absolute love porches…they are my weakness. Your porch is just gorgeous!

  51. November 27, 2017 at 9:18 am

    It’s beginning to look like Christmas! I love the woodland centerpiece. I decorated with plaid this year too! Love the wreaths but it is too hot here in Florida to enjoy on my front door. Guess I could put it on the inside!! Thank you for sharing your little slice of heaven.

  52. Dorinda Selke
    November 27, 2017 at 9:27 am

    Hi Mary – your post is just gorgeous. I have to say that I am picking your same wreath – the Wildlife Adventure Wreath. My reason is sort of sad, however. We just lost my beloved mother in law a month ago and she absolutely loved cardinals, so I’m decorating with cardinals here and there this year in her honor 😔. Thank you so much for this amazing chance of a giveaway! Happy Holidays! Hugs, Dorinda

  53. Laura O’Connell
    November 27, 2017 at 9:27 am

    As always, I love your holiday (or any day) decorating. You are so gifted! Lynch Creek Farms offers such beautiful arrangements that I had to choose two! LOL….the Mountain Vineyard and the Hunter’s Hollow. They both have the colors and theme that I am incorporating this year. Merry Christmas and thank you for this give-away!

  57. Terry Wallace
    November 27, 2017 at 9:37 am

    Beautiful. …thanks for the inspiration. Owl Be home love….we have watched a baby owl blossom into a beautiful mature bird. I have pictures of when he was little and have watched him or her grow over the last year and a half. He will nest in a tree outside our house and we are always watching for him. We live in a mountain community called Big Canoe located in Georgia. So I though you would enjoy the reason that I picked that wreath. Terry.

    I look forward to your posts Mary, you certainly have a gift for decorating. We have seen your pups and even a picture of your husband on the boat. I don’t think we have ever seen a picture of you? I enjoyed looking at the wreaths and centerpieces at Lynch Creek farms. If I had to pick a favorite it would be the Country Sleigh centerpiece.

  91. Terri

    Glad Tidings

    What a lovely treat! Thank you and Lynch Creek Farm so much for the offer. I loved the “Home for the Holidays” centerpiece.

  106. November 27, 2017 at 1:07 pm

    Just the inspiration I need to get going on my decorating at home! Thanks.

  107. November 27, 2017 at 1:36 pm

    I’d love the Hunter’s Hollow centerpiece.

  108. November 27, 2017 at 1:43 pm

    Wow the Western Lantern Wreath would look great on my new deck. Lynch Creek Farms great website!!

  110. November 27, 2017 at 1:51 pm

    Beautiful porch. I love all the plaid and the birdhouse. Very inspiring. I need to dig out my Christmas deco books and stack them someplace, too. I like Plaid Bow Traditional at Lynch Creek Farms. Thanks for having this, I love Christmas blog hops.

    Oh Mary, your porch is just wonderful, I would love to sit there. All your pictures are always so beautiful. I have no clue how I am supposed to pick one of anything, all those wreaths and centerpieces are just breath taking. I did finally settle on the wreath Glacier Bay, the blue is just fabulous.

    November 27, 2017 at 2:04 pm

    I love the story of Lynch Creek Farms. Their website is amazing! Hard to pick just one but I love all of yours and that would be Wildlife. The sparkling birds nests are adorable and I will try to make one for myself. Love everything you do, you are so creative!

  116. Faye
    November 27, 2017 at 2:26 pm

    Mary…….all of the wreaths are gorgeous, but I would pick Everlasting Hope. I help to serve once a month at our local shelter called Pinellas Hope in St. Petersburg, Florida. Our church helps other area churches serve dinner to approximately 200 homeless people each day that live there in tents and small container rooms. It is a wonderful organization that is assisting them in finding jobs and regaining their lives. I would donate the wreath to them to help brighten their holiday season with HOPE for their future.

Thanks for connecting us to Lynch Creek Farms, their wreaths, garland and centerpieces are exquisite. Just love the Majestic Magnolia Wreath but since I was so fortunate to win the “In Style Parties” book wish not to be included in this give away. Thank you for giving your readers this opportunity.

    November 27, 2017 at 7:47 pm

    Hi Mary, if I were able to receive a wreath from Lynch Creek Farms I would pick the Blended Bouquet. I like the hint of blue from the Blue Spruce(?) branches. Every couple of years or so I switch the colors I use for Christmas decorating and this year I’m going with green, from the tree, along with silver and the think the Lynch Creek Farm wreath would coordinate well with my other decorations. Thank you for providing this give away.

  153. Mandy Thweatt

  156. Sue Bingeman
    November 27, 2017 at 8:09 pm

    I enjoyed seeing your cozy porch all decked out for Christmas. Then on to Lynch Creek Farms and so many beautiful wreaths and arrangements. I liked so many of them, but I would choose the centerpiece, Evergreen Orb. Its bronze orb base makes it unique and red burlap ribbon and live evergreens add a natural touch. Beautiful!

  164. RS

    I visited your blog tonight thinking you would have ideas from “your porch” and you certainly did! Being a “Carolina girl” we enjoy our porches and we use ours nearly year round! After visiting Lynch Creek Farm’s website, I would love to be able to add their beautiful “Holly Ever After” wreath, which has the red birds, (our state’s bird) to our screen door! I am partial to the cardinal and also have the Lenox “Winter Greeting” dinnerware that hasn’t made it to our dining room table yet…as I always prolong removing Thanksgiving decor because I just love all the fall colors! Never can get over your abundance of creativity…so glad you share it with us all!!

  167. Peggy Ott

    Hello Mary! After all the emails from Black Friday and Cyber Monday, coming upon your’s was like a breath of Fresh Air!! Love the porch! Just decorated mine this past weekend. Still some fine tuning to be done. But what a lovely site you gave to us. Lynch Creek Farms! Wow! I just spent a good half hour looking and wishing. Oh the “Holy Ever After” wreath was a soft spot for me. Will be celebrating 50 yrs this Dec. 30th. The wreath is simple and says it all! But I also loved the Home Sweet Home Centerpiece and the Cape Cod. What pretty things. Would make great gifts!! Thanks to you and Lynch Creek Farms for sharing!!! And for taking me away for a good hour!!!

  168. Linda Tietjen

    Lovely porch decor. That Holiday Adventure is calling my name, I hope, I hope.

  170. November 27, 2017 at 9:57 pm

    Love everything you’ve displayed! So many beautiful wreaths and arrangements, but “Christmas by the Bay” called my name.

  171. Marie
    November 27, 2017 at 10:04 pm

    Mary, Thank you for introducing me to Lynch Farms. I like so many of their beautiful wreaths and centerpieces. If I had to choose just one, I think it would be Hunter’s Hollow centerpiece. As I have been shopping, I can’t help but look at certain things and think, I wouldn’t be surprised if Mary uses this in one of her tables. So, I look forward to seeing your holiday tables to see if I was right. I thank you. MM

  172. November 27, 2017 at 10:23 pm

    I would feel so fortunate to have anyone of these fabulous wreaths or centerpieces. You can tell how thoughtfully they are put together by the details and artful arrangement. If I had to choose one it would be the wreath or centerpiece with the cardinals (or Redbirds, as my mother called them)in them, for cardinals remind me of my mother and we’re her favorite bird. I can’t wait to see how the other sites use LynchCreek wreaths and centerpieces. Such a treat for all of us. Thank you so much for bringing us joy and beauty into our lives.

  173. November 27, 2017 at 10:55 pm

    Love all the birds! I would love to see the Hunter’s Hollow enter piece, with its cute little bird, on my Christmas dining table!

  174. November 27, 2017 at 11:06 pm

    Love your outdoor porch decor! That wooden gate! Love how the wreath looks over it too. That Woodland Adventure Wreath is one of my favorites. Thanks for the opp to enter this great giveaway!

    November 27, 2017 at 11:09 pm

    Good morning Mary! Just returned home from our annual Thanksgiving travel and catching up on my blog reading. Your mulled wine recipe made me want to be back in Europe at the Christmas Markets sipping a delicious, hot cup of mulled wine!!! So I will have to try your crockpot recipe and fill my Christmas market mug souvenir cups with it. I collect mugs from all the European Christmas Markets that we go to each year! So I was delighted to see this recipe! The Christmas nesting that you did is so lovely. I love the cardinal theme!!! I would chose the Wildlife Adventure wreath, as I too, am decorating with cardinals on one of my mantles this year! Thanks for the recipes and decorating inspiration and the giveaway chance!!! Good to be home, can’t wait to get a cup of mulled wine and read on!!! Happy Nesting!!! ☕️

  185. November 28, 2017 at 7:54 am

  202. Kari
    November 28, 2017 at 3:21 pm

    Simply beautiful Mary…I have to admit the wreath and centerpiece I would choose would be the wildlife ones you chose. There is something about red cardinals that draw me in. I have a pair that visit my Secret Garden daily and I feel them cocking their little heads as if waiting for me to appear. They fluff in the bird bath and make me smile. Your porch is so inviting and the addition of the bright red cardinals is just perfect. Merry Christmas

  211. November 28, 2017 at 8:31 pm

    So many beautiful arrangements. The Winter Sleigh is my favorite–it will make its way into January. I decorate more with winter decor than Christmas. Thanks for sharing all your tips!!

    I would chose the Red Deluxe Wreath! They are all beautiful! Thank you Mary &
    Lynch Creek Farms for the opportunity!

  213. November 28, 2017 at 9:01 pm

    Loving all the cozy plaids. As someone who was into country in the 90s, after my child left for college we moved and went with a more glittery, sophisticated look at Christmas. Not me, so turned to nostalgia and retro from my own childhood. Find myself adding back in those warm plaids and birds and the smell of gingerbread. Finally a style that shouts “me! ” Nostalgic, warm and cozy. Welcoming to all.
    I choose the Tis the Season wreath. I want to write “we believe” on chalkboard.

    LOVE your cardinal themed porch! It’s all so cheery and cozy. Everything on Lynch Creek Farm’s site is beautiful, but the Birch and Burlap centerpiece would look lovely in my kitchen! Hope your holidays are happy ones.

    This was a tough one because they are all beautiful. I love holiday decor that is natural. I have to go with Birch Burlap. I love Birch trees and that particular centerpiece is about as natural as it gets. Merry Christmas everyone.

    The Mixed Holly wreath

  241. Cyndee Randall
    November 29, 2017 at 5:21 pm

    I love the mixed holly wreath, but I love the others, too. This post just makes me smile. I have the Winter Greetings dishes and use them from late November into March. There is something so wonderful about greens filling a home in winter. Almost as wonderful as the birds at my feeder. In Maine, the birds, “my” squirrels, and the greens help make the long winters bearable. Blessings.

    Oh my goodness! What beautiful wreaths and centerpieces! Hard to choose just one but I think the Burgandy Deluxe is my favorite. Thank you for sharing their website.

    November 29, 2017 at 6:18 pm

    I so enjoy visiting your site! Every season is filled with beautiful goodies. I do love Christmas season the best though. All of the wreaths at Lynch Creek are beautiful in their own ways. I do favor the Country Christmas wreath the best. It reminds me of a vintage Christmas.

  244. Mary B. Bollinger

    You always have some great inspiration for me for decorating my house and potting shed. Your choice of wreath and centerpiece added so much to your tablescape. I am always impressed with your creativity. I had to order a wreath from Lynch Creek Farm as their work was fantastic and I could not pass it up. I would also love to add the
    ‘Hunter’s Hallow’ arrangement to my hall since there are other bird pictures.

    Exquisite..each and every table top and wreath…
    I’m gifting if I’m lucky to win..and I’d be hard pressed to pick a favorite if it was my choice.
    I do like lime light, the birch wrapped vessel centerpiece with sweet bird..the out of stock silver white wreath..and the charming bronze lantern wreath…reminds me of grandmas on the farm as a sweet token of my childhood..
    Thank you. Someone is going to be very happy soon.

    I went over to Lynch Creek Farm and window shopped with the proper ohhhing and awwing, but then I spied the one I would love to have… “Owl Be Home” called out to me! I am an owl lover and that is such a charming wreath, who wouldn’t fall madly in love with it? They really have some beautiful products. Thanks to you and to them for offering your fans such a gorgeous seasonal delight.
