Scents of the Season

Hard to believe an entire year has passed already and we are just two day away from Christmas. And I think everybody can agree, the one single thing that makes each and every one of us know it’s the holidays is that heavenly scent of pine.

I often will use a real wreath so that I can have the wonderful pine scent in the house. The same goes for garlands.

If you are using a real wreath, you will need wire to attach the various components into the wreath. However, if you are using an artificial wreath, you can use the artificial stems to wrap items into the wreath. The artificial stems have a wire base so it makes it really easy to use as a fastener. The same applies to the garland.

I love to use a beautiful ribbon and often multiple ribbons for added texture. A 3 inch wide ribbon, a 1 1/2 inch ribbon and a rope garland intertwined into a wreath is a gorgeous look. I also love to use artificial flowers or aged, dried hydrangea. Berries are also a nice feature for added texture.

All the same ideas apply to a garland. I love to use a garland down the middle of my dining room table with candles and fairies. It doesn’t take up too much room so it is still easy to set a nice table and not have to move the garland out of the way.
