Over the last few years, garlands have been making appearances everywhere. From weddings, to parties, to House Tours – there’s no denying the joyful quality they add to any space in which they appear. I love all uses of garlands. But I especially love garlands for the holidays!Whether they’re wrapped around the tree, swaged across the mantle, looped through a banister, or draped from a doorway; the sparkle and pop they bring just makes my heart sing. Maybe it’s their easy-going nature – the way you can string them virtually anywhere, and add instant festivity and fun where previously there was none. Whatever it is, for me, it wouldn’t be Christmas without them!
