Deck the Halls: Holiday Garland & SuchDecember 14, 2017
Did you know? Those boughs of holly (and other greenery) that you hang from your mantle may have originated in Druid, Celt, Norse and Roman civilizations, which celebrated the pagan winter solstice on December 21st–the shortest day of the year. Green represents eternal life, and the plants that we use to decorate our mantle, doors, and walkways throughout the holidays play a special role in these celebrations.
We are enamored with some of the garlands and decor that we have found (real or illustrated!) Enjoy a few of the images below, and don’t forget to get festive this time of year with whatever foliage and flora inspires you, and helps your home tell YOUR holiday story.
