Wreaths and garlands have traditionally been made of evergreen branches and hung on the front door as a welcome symbol. Unlike real foliage that only look fresh for a limited time, Balsam Hill®’s artificial wreaths and garlands will add warmth and beauty to your indoor or outdoor areas with minimal maintenance.
When Should You Hang Christmas Wreaths and Garlands?
There are no hard rules to when you should hang Christmas wreaths and garlands. This means that the best time to put up your greenery is any time before Christmas depending on your preferences and traditions.
However, many families choose to hang Christmas wreaths and garlands on the last week of November. This is also the time when people start to set up their Christmas trees. It's the perfect opportunity to transition from autumn into Christmas.
Artificial greenery like Balsam Hill® wreaths and garlands allow you to decorate as early as you want without having to worry about wilting or falling needles. You can also take them down after the season and, with proper storage, enjoy their beauty for years to come.
Where Do You Hang Christmas Garlands and Wreaths?
Traditionally, artificial Christmas garlands and wreaths are hung on the front door to create a welcoming ambience. A fireplace mantel is also a favourite spot since it’s a great focal point in a room.
Artificial Christmas wreaths and garlands come in festive designs with natural accents like pinecones and berries or with Christmas tree decorations like ribbons and ornaments to suit any space. Here are some other areas where you can hang artificial wreaths and garlands to brighten your living areas.
1. Exterior Windows
The windows on the outside of your house can elevate the look of your home. Crafted with UV protection and weather-resistant materials, Balsam Hill®’s outdoor-safe artificial Christmas wreaths and garlands make it easy for you to decorate these spaces that are constantly exposed to changing weather conditions.
Apart from decorating the main door, one option is to make a wreath gallery on the porch wall by hanging artificial wreaths in various sizes and designs. Or, suspend them from the ceiling using strings of different lengths. Make your porch an eye-catching sight by running a garland along the roof or railing.
The patio is a popular entertaining spot so it’s a good idea to spruce it up. Decorate this al fresco lounging area with a festive wreath. For a cohesive look, add a matching garland across the length of the table as a centrepiece.
Bring cheer to this high-traffic space with a display of vibrant artificial Christmas wreaths and garlands. Hang a wreath on the inside of the front door, over your coat hanger, or along the wall. Use a coordinating garland to line the staircase handrail or drape it along the balusters.
5. Living Room
The living room is the showroom of any home, which makes it the perfect spot to display your faux greenery. Create a lovely set-up on a console table or centre table with other seasonal décor such as snow globes, candles, lanterns, and miniature Christmas villages.
6. Dining Room
The dining room is another popular area to decorate with artificial wreaths and garlands. Use a lifelike Balsam Hill® garland across your table for a lively centrepiece that will last all season and beyond. Choose coordinating wreaths and garlands for your buffet table, bar cart, or dessert station. For special occasions, hang small wreaths on the back of chairs and make your guests feel extra special by adding their name card on each.
