The color it adds to a room in addition to the depth and fragrance, activates your senses in the best of ways.
There are so many options available now when it comes to garland. There are those who like to keep it traditional and make their own, from Christmas tree clippings of pine and hand-cut magnolia, mixed with some cinnamon sticks and dried fruit. Then there are those of us that prefer the easier route of buying pre-made faux garland strands. They seem to be available nearly everywhere in all sizes and a wide variety of price points. (The good stuff is, hello pricey!)
