Agway is Your Source for Coastal Christmas Decor
You’ve probably seen the displays of beautiful wreaths, swags and holiday greens in the Agway nurseries. But did you know that these are all created right here by a team of talented nursery staff? And that many of those shells adorning the wreaths were combed on our local beaches? And the greens and berries pruned and picked from local woods? Take a peek behind the scenes to see first-hand how we craft our coastal Christmas creations.
These beautiful pieces are adorned by mussels and sea scallops. The shells are combed on our local beaches and then cleaned and sanitized with a special solution. They add a unique Cape Cod touch to any holiday display.
We use a variety of greens and berries in our creations. Different varieties bring different textures, colors and interest to each piece. We especially love Lelands, White Pine, Fir, Spruce, Juniper, Holly, Boxwood, Winter Berry, and Cypress (gold thread). Our team sources much of this locally, starting in early November when many trees are in need to pruning before the long winter.
The nursery team works tirelessly from early November through Christmas, creating each piece by hand. This also makes each design one-of-a-kind. Interested in something special just for you? We’ll happily create a custom item featuring your favorite pieces or theme. Wouldn’t these snowy owls be adorable perched on your front door wreath?

These beautiful wreaths were also created with locally sourced shells.
We have a huge selection of ready-made bows and ribbons. Just choose your favorite ribbon and our talented nursery elves will happily tie up a perfectly looped bow.
We haven’t forgotten the most important piece – the tree! We have a vast selection of live and cut trees, ranging from 3 feet to 15 feet. Choose from the fragrant Balsam Firs, the sturdy Frasiers, the beautiful silvery Blue Spruces and many other varieties. We’ll give your tree a fresh cut, wrap it and even fasten it to your roof. The decorating…well that’s up to you!
Happy Holidays from all of us at Agway of Cape Cod!
