Cedar Garlands: A Beautiful Addition to your Holidays

Using garland to decorate is a way to easily add style, warmth, and natural beauty to your home during the holiday season. Many different materials can be used to create stunning pine garland and other evergreen garlands, pepper berry garland, or even eucalyptus garland.  But when it comes to choosing which garland to enhance your seasonal Christmas decorations, cedar garland is a lovely choice. There's nothing quite like cedar garland in terms of its woodsy feel and fragrance. 

But how do you choose the right cedar garland for your Christmas garland needs? This article will help as you think through the different factors of choosing a garland for  Christmas decor needs.

What is Cedar Garland and How is it Used?

Cedar garland is a type of holiday garland handmade from sprigs of evergreen cedar trees. It's a popular choice for Christmas decorations because of its wonderful fragrance and deep green color, bringing the beauty of nature inside. Cedar garland is easily incorporated into holiday decorations by hanging it from a banister, draping over the fireplace mantel, using it as a dining room centerpiece on the table, or any other place you want some festive holiday decor.

How To Choose the Right Cedar Garland for Your Needs?

When choosing a cedar garland for your home decor, consider the following factors:

  • The size of the cedar garland: You need to choose a cedar garland that is the right size for your needs. Our cedar garland is available in 18-foot and 72-foot lengths conveniently sized to fit any space. Pieces can also be cut to fit smaller-sized spaces.
  • The materials on the garland: Adding materials such as bows and ornaments are a fun way to personalize the garland and add some pizzazz to match your other holiday decor. You can also use things like pine cones, LED lights, sprigs of boxwood or holly, and tinsel for unique touches to your greenery garland.
  • To light or not to light: That is the question for cedar garlands: prelit or unlit.  Our garlands come unlit as opposed to prelit, but it’s easy to add a strand of lights for ambiance and glow. 
  • The price of the cedar garland: Cedar garlands can range drastically in price, but for the best quality and value, Lynch Creek Farm’s Cedar Garland is the best!

How to Decorate with Cedar Garland

Once you have chosen a cedar garland, decide how you want to use it. Here are some ideas:

  • Place cedar garland down the center of your dining room table.
  • Wrap cedar garland around your front door or down your banister.
  • Drape cedar garland across your mantel or coffee table.
  • Hang cedar garland over your bed frame or windows.

No matter how you choose to decorate with cedar garland, it will add a touch of elegance to your home and tie in beautifully with your Christmas tree.

Cedar Garland Care and Maintenance

Once you have chosen and decorated with cedar garland, you need to know how to care for it. Here are some tips:

  • Keep cedar garland away from heat sources. This will help prevent the cedar branches from drying out and becoming brittle.
  • Be sure to water the cedar garland during the holidays. To increase your garland's health and lifespan, spritz the cut ends with water every 2-3 days. This will help prevent the cedar branches from becoming too dry and brittle and delay that beautiful smell from fading too soon.
