BEST PLACES TO HANG WREATHS AND GARLANDS OUTDOORS

Before you start decorating, make sure to check if your foliage pieces are designed for indoor or outdoor use. Balsam Hill’s outdoor-safe wreaths and garlands come with UV protection to help prevent fading and keep colours bright. Here are common outdoor spots to spruce up with greenery:

EASY SEASONAL HOME DECORATING IDEAS TO TRY

Artificial wreaths and garlands never wilt or dry out, making them ideal for year-round decorating. With a few tweaks, these versatile pieces can work in any season and blend well with most themes. Enjoy your greenery throughout the year by following these tips on how to transition your seasonal home décor:

1. Start with simple evergreens

For a setup that’s always in season, put up undecorated garlands and wreaths all year round. Their classic green branches are eye-catching whether displayed alone or with accents. To highlight their timeless elegance, string lights around your greenery or choose a pre-lit variant.

2. Add seasonal accents

With undecorated greenery as your base, add decorative fruits, flowers, and other accents to refresh your home every season. Welcome spring and summer with delicate blooms then switch to fiery leaves, pumpkins, and other harvest-themed pieces during autumn. In the winter, use festive ornaments and trimmings to spread Christmas cheer.

3. Mix in the season's colours

Pair your faux greenery with accessories that echo seasonal colours. For spring, freshen up your foliage with pastel-hued ribbons or ornaments. Then, move toward brighter tones as summer rolls in. To recreate autumn’s beauty, choose trimmings in orange, golden yellow, or warm earth tones. Ring in Christmas with red, green, and gold, or replicate the coolness of winter with shades of white and icy blue. To pull your seasonal home décor together, use the same nature-inspired colour scheme for furnishings like pillowcases, blankets, and rugs.

4. Switch to decorated greenery

Replace simple foliage with decorated Christmas greenery for a quick transition. Some wreaths and garlands include built-in decorations to help you welcome the season in style. Balsam Hill’s pre-decorated artificial greenery features a wide array of accents like berries, pinecones, and metallic ornaments to suit different themes.
