Colorful wreaths decorated with fresh fruit and evergreens, dried flowers, and other natural materials are a hallmark of the Christmas season in Colonial Williamsburg. The idea of decorating with fresh fruit is a modern one, starting in the early 20th-century. The tradition in Williamsburg didn’t start until 1939, well after the restoration was underway.

Today, Christmas decorations are taken seriously in the Historic Area. You won’t find electric Christmas lights here (other than the single candles in the windows), instead, decorations are done using natural materials. Every year there is a "Deck the Doors" contest. The residents each design their own wreaths and garlands and decorate their homes. Many of the wreaths reflect the function of the building, or the resident’s trade.

This one is outside the Milliner’s shop, hence the fabric covered fruit.
