How to Add the Perfect Holiday Garland to Your Christmas Decor

The holiday season is a time of year when many of us focus on decorating our homes to create a warm and festive atmosphere. One way to do this is by adding fresh holiday garland to your decor. Whether you're looking to decorate your front door, banister, Christmas tree, or fireplace mantel, a Christmas garland can add a touch of elegance and charm to your home. 

Types of Holiday Garlands

When it comes to holiday garlands, there are several different types to choose from. One of the most popular options is a fresh evergreen Christmas garland. We have several to choose from in our fresh garland collection. These garlands arrive full and fresh and ready to display. They smell wonderful! They are not pre-lit and don’t come with built-in LED lights, so we offer beautiful garland lights that you can add to create a warm, twinkling glow to your decor. Another popular option is a pine cone garland, which is made from real pine cones and greenery. This type of garland can add a rustic, natural touch to your home.

Another option is a pine garland which can be used in a similar way as the pine cone garland, but the pine garland has a more natural look, and the pine cones are not used in this type of garland. Our popular Premium Garland and our Mixed Garland both contain fresh pine along with other evergreens.

You may also want to consider a eucalyptus garland, which can add elegance and sophistication to your holiday decor. This garland is often used in combination with other types of greenery and is a perfect option for those looking to create a more refined look in their home.

Decorating with Holiday Garlands

Once you've chosen the perfect holiday garland for your home, it's time to start decorating. One of the most popular places to hang a holiday garland is on the banister. You can drape a pre-lit garland with warm white or clear lights over the banister for a beautiful and festive look. Flowing and beautifully draping Cedar Garland is perfect for these locations.

Another popular place to hang a garland is over the front door. A garland with red berries, tinsel, and pre-lit with multicolor lights can add a warm and inviting touch to your home's entrance. Our Douglas Fir garland is easy to use and looks wonderful with your DIY accents added.

A garland hung over the banister or front door can add a warm and inviting touch to your home, while a garland used as a centerpiece on the dining room table makes for a classic addition to your holiday home decor.

You can also hang a garland over the fireplace mantel for a cozy and inviting look. Try using a garland made from fir or carolina pine for a rustic and natural feel.

A holiday garland can also be used as a centerpiece on the dining room table or on the living room coffee table. A garland made from poinsettia, magnolia and bristle is a great addition to your Christmas decorations. Simply drape the garland across the center of the table and add your finishing touches.

Choosing the Right Holiday Garland

When it comes to choosing the perfect holiday garland for your home, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, consider the overall look and feel you're trying to achieve with your decor. If you're going for a rustic and natural look, a pine garland may be the perfect choice. If you're looking for a more refined and sophisticated look, a cedar or eucalyptus garland may be the way to go.

Another important thing to consider is accessibility. If you're planning to hang your garland in a location that is difficult to reach, such as over the banister, a pre-lit garland with a plug-in may be the best option, or simply add your own lights. And don't forget, you can always incorporate other holiday decorations such as Christmas wreaths or lights to complement your garland.

And finally, consider the size of your space. For larger spaces, a longer garland may be the way to go. However, for smaller spaces, a shorter garland may be more appropriate.

Adding a holiday garland to your home during the holiday season can be a great way to add a touch of elegance and charm to your Christmas decor. With so many different types of garlands to choose from, it's easy to find one that will suit your personal style and decor. Whether you're looking for a pre-lit garland with warm white or white LED lights, a pine cone or pine garland, or an unlit eucalyptus holiday garland, there is a garland out there that will be perfect for your home this holiday season!
