It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas & a Giveaway

Advertisements
Aaaaawh! I am so ready to cheer up this house in twinkle lights, pine and get on with making some memories!
This year I have a railing in the foyer to decorate. Yippee! It’s so fun to be able to use some of my old stuff in new ways.

I love natural garlands, trees and wreaths but the problem is – I leave them up way too long and so they die even before Christmas. (I know that is obvious to you since it is barely even the middle of November and I am already holiday decorating)

So I buy faux trees, garlands and wreaths but I am super picky about them looking natural.

Look how pretty this garland is. It looks and feels natural. Since this beautiful green sits directly in my foyer where guests can touch and feel, I want it to be nice and natural. The garland comes from Tree Classics.

When I received it in the mail I was so super surprised at the quality and life-like color when I opened the box. The needles really do feel real and fresh.

No wonder Tree Classics gets so many great reviews.

Now, here’s a great deal for you – Tree Classics is celebrating 40 years and instead of receiving gifts for this special birthday year – they are actually GIVING 40 gifts away.

The good news is that one of my readers will get one of them. (happy dance)

All you have to do is leave me a comment below and you will be entered to win this Classic Noble Fir Garland! (click the link – you can see details and close ups of the needles & everything – trust me, it’s super nice)

The garland is pre-lit with white lights and it’s so natural looking! Just like the garland on my railing.

I fastened my garland to the railing with rope tied into bows.

How do you keep your garland in place?

Oh, while we are talking about natural and gifts – look what my parents picked up for me on their vacation to Lake Tahoe (I think that is where they were). These pine cones are almost 6 inches tall. I put twinkle lights in the silver bucket with them. Such a beautiful earthy accent.

OK – so you only have a few days to leave me a nice comment because you want to get your garland to show off this year – right?

I will choose a reader at random to receive the garland on Friday this week and then Tree Classics will mail it straight to you.

K…so just leave a message down below. Click the post a comment link and a comment box will show up. Say something nice and be sure to sign your first name please.

Good Luck!

Ooooh it looks a little like Christmas at your house… and it's gorgeous! I can't seem to get the spirit this year. We lost our beloved Hannah at the end of August. We rescued a Japanese Chin in Sept. and in Nov. he ran into a shepherds hook out back and his eye came out of the socket… had a surgery to try and fix and just had another to take the eye out. It's been so stressful, he is so sweet and has had a very horrible life being abused, it hurts so much to rescue him and then… Read more »

Until I read more, I thought that garland was real! It looks beautiful and such a lovely contrast against the railing, Holly. Love the big pine cones and the entry decor too. Thanks for the chance.

I really like your decorating style! Any visitor to your home would be welcomed with an earthy, homey feeling that immediately would make them feel comfortable. I'd be torn between adding this lighted garland to my mantel or my railing…I'd need two! duchick at gmail dot com

I love the Garland with the rope! Seeing this post makes me want to start decorating TODAY:)

Very pretty! Makes it all that much more special when it comes pre-lit! Now you're making me want to whip out my Christmas decorations!!

Love love love this! So natural and rustic without being too christmasy.

It's really hard to find \”faux\” that looks real and this certainly does! Love the way you have yours tied with rope on your bannister.Carol

Love your entryway and how you are using natural elements to decorate for Christmas. It has given me a few ideas for this year.Connie

Yay! I love giveaways and how your stairs look!

I absolutely love your style. And using the rope to hang your Garland is genious! In the past I have hung my Garland with wire and tacks, not making my husband very happy. I would absolutely love to win this beautiful garland, it looks so real. Happy Holidays everyone. Marci

This garland is beautiful, I have the perfect spot for it too! I thought it was real tree at first, looks so real.

I was always a stickler on only having a real tree as it just doesn’t seem like Christmas without that real tree smell! But reality over the yrs with the chore of strapping a live tree to the roof for a ½ hr drive home on the highway to my farm in the cold snowy winter is not fun so I have been using live Norfolk pines for xmas trees for yrs now. These are smaller 3’ tall versions that only hold a fraction of my decorations 🙁 so I tend to get 2 as they are small :). I… Read more »
