Mixed Green Garlands {Christmas 2013}

 

I do not use live trees inside; instead, I prefer the faux ones as they are pre-lit and easy to decorate. I love to use live garlands on the mantles and on the staircase. The smell is intoxicating, and there is no better smell than Christmas fir.

I have used magnolia garlands for the past few years, but this year I opted for a mixed green garland of cedar, fir, and spruce. I love the way it hangs along the mantles and staircase.

I wish I had smell-a-blog because it smells divine.

I know I am giving you just a taste of my Christmas decor, but I will definitely be giving you the room tours soon.

Green garlands, y’all!

  3. Beautiful! We have one real tree (and it is a beast this year) and we always put of one artificial (white with vintage ornaments). I love fresh greens throughout for accents however. Smells divine, but my allergies hate it! LOL I'll suffer.

  6. I bet it does smell divine! Where we live they ship Christmas trees to other parts of the country. I've had natural trees for years but once I converted to the artificial trees I was hooked! Looking forward to seeing more of your decorating!
