One decorating tradition is to place evergreen garland on the mantle or along the stair railings. Evergreen garland does not stay fresh indoors for very long. You would be well advised to put artificial garlands indoors. This is particularly true for areas near any heat source.
There are some very high-quality artificial garlands. These would be a good choice for inside your home and are mandatory for business use. Live wreaths placed inside the home can dry out just like garland. Again, there are some very lifelike artificial wreaths that you can purchase. On the upside, if you buy quality artificial garlands or wreaths you will have them for years to come.
Well, that’s all for this week. I wish you and yours a very happy holiday.
I’ll talk to you again next week.
