It’s not just for the holidays! Wrap a string of garland along a balustrade or railing for an outdoors-in feel. You can even get festive with the seasons – swapping out pinecones for summer florals, springtime pastels or fall leaves. While unusual, fresh garland looks beautiful – and will be sure to add a homey fragrance. Best for stairways, sideboard/buffet/dresser decor and even windowsills! (If you’re unsure about this trend, start with faux garland; faux types are available in almost every color and style, they're hassle-free and look just as good as the real thing.)
