How to Decorate With Garland

3 Unexpectedly Chic Ways to Use Garlands

If you think garlands tend to look childlike or fussy, we have three styling solutions that will help you see them in a new light. Whether you want to impress your family and friends upon arrival or jazz up those folding chairs for Thanksgiving, ditch the paper-ring versions and explore these options instead. With ideas this doable, there's no excuse not to try them!

1. Set the Scene For Guests

When it comes to your front door, wreaths are good, but garlands can be even better. Not only are they fitting for the season, but they make an impressive and festive entrance draped across your front door. As the holidays approach, head to your local nursery or florist for fresh greens, then intersperse berries, cones, and flowers throughout. You can also consider these premade options that can be reused for years to come.

2. Turn It Into an Easy Centerpiece

If you want it to look like you've spent all day styling your table, use garlands as a centerpiece. They add depth and texture without needing a wide array of details or accents. Opt for fresh pine garlands to line your holiday dinner table and a few votives and flowers for a pop of color.

3. Dress Up Your Dinner Chairs

If you find yourself pulling out folding chairs around the holidays, dress them up with garlands. They don't have to be extravagant to make an impact. Many craft stores sell garlands that you can spray paint (similar to the garland above). If you're not the crafty type, this gold garland ($24) is a stylish option that will dress up any chair!
