The Best Garlands We’ve Ever Seen
Nothing decks the halls (or mantel or staircase) like a dense strand of garland. A classic winter decoration, a garland injects a space with life, color, and cheer. This year, we can’t take our eyes off of full, luxurious strands like the ones below. From metallic-tipped magnolia to close-packed silver dollar eucalyptus peppered with graceful dahlias, read on to see our absolute favorite festive garlands.
