Christmas home decorating ideas – how to chose your type of garlands
Whether sophisticated or discrete the garlands add to the festive atmosphere of the holiday. They can be single long pieces of evergreens or small accent pieces of ornaments, flowers, lights. When choosing evergreens it will be a good idea to get two types of green – light and dark. That will have a unique visual effect. If you haven’t got a staircase to decorate – turn to small places – picture frames, mirrors, lighting and various unexpected spots. Anything you have available is suitable to create a holiday garland. Our Christmas home decorating ideas will give you some hints and show you some interesting and original details. Glue snowflakes to silver ribbons and hang them from the chandelier, use different types of flowers to thicken your garlands of evergreens and give them a new flowery look, tie elegant knots on your dining chairs – whatever pleases you and works for you.
