Last year we moved into our new home just before Thanksgiving. I bought a HUGE live garland from Costco to liven the house up (see above). It was so pretty and big! If you want a real one that’s the place to go!
After the heat from the fireplace and the sunlight, it was dried up 2 weeks later. I tried misting, but it was long gone and my floors were covered in needles. I tossed it just before Christmas. This year I am going faux!
The Best Faux Garlands For The Holidays
Faux Garlands Discussed Below:
I. I have the Eucalyptus Garland from Magnolia above my fireplace (below). This one doesn’t scream Christmas so much; I put it up in the early fall and will leave it until Christmas! Add pinecones if you want to give it a real feel.
2. This Olive Leaf & Myrtle Garland from Pottery Barn is what I used around my stairs this year. It is fresh, and technically real, so its a nice compromise. It smelled good too! I just tied some ribbon around it to make it even more special.
3. I REALLY like this garland from Pottery Barn. Initially I was going to purchase this. I took too long making up my mind though, and they were sold out by the time I went to buy it, darn it!
I just have a special place in my heart for magnolias!
5. A great budget / Amazon option: Of course I had to include this garland off of Amazon. I have seen this guy everywhere this year. Although I haven’t used it (yet), it has great reviews! World Market has almost an identical version, but of course, no free two day shipping. 😉
6. Over 1,000 positive reviews on Wayfair for this thick prelit garland, and under $50. I’ll let the reviews do the talking!
If a garland (faux or real) isn’t in your budget, the trimmings from the tree always make a nice touch. You can mist these to help them last too.
Ok and if you aren’t quite sold on faux yet… here is a BONUS! Get a real garland delivered in the mail! This guy isn’t faux, it is stunning and smells so good in real life. The real noble fir garland from Anthropologie drapes perfectly over mantels, doorframes, etc.

Sharing some stunning garlands with you as well! Faux and real, because the needles might be all over your floor, but its hard to beat the real thing and I just love looking at them!

This looks like a combo of eucalyptus and a real pine garland. You can totally recreate this using faux greenery!
