A highly cherished part of the holidays is making your home look like a winter wonderland that’s full of holiday cheer. One of the worst parts is not having all the decorations that you dreamed of. If your holiday décor needs some sprucing up or if you just want more options (and who doesn’t?), we have just the thing to help you out. From rustic to elegant to modern, there’s something for everyone to enjoy! Our listing Coordinator Leigha’s personal favorite tip for the holidays is to buy tons of garland, real or fake. She loves garland because it’s so versatile. You can put it over a fireplace mantel, down stair railings, use it as a centerpiece for your table, hang it over door frames, wrap it around deck railing, add lights to it, add ribbon to it, etc. Plus if it’s the real stuff, it makes your house smell (and look) like a winter wonderland. It’s also inexpensive! She gets 50 feet every year from a local woman for just $15!

One of the best parts of the holidays is going out and cutting down your favorite tree to decorate. With all the joy and holiday cheer going around it can be difficult to remember that disaster can still strike at any moment. Although fires started by Christmas trees and decorations are not as common, they are more likely to be serious as there are more flammable materials than normal present.
