How to Use Your Holiday Greenery for All Seasons

Today I'm sharing tips about how to use your holiday greenery for all the seasons.  
You don't have to put your greenery away all year - you can easily use it in your Spring, Summer and Fall decor too!
This post is sponsored by Tree Classics, but the content and opinions expressed are my own.

I am delighted to be joining a group of bloggers in partnership with Tree Classics, our sponsor who provided us with a wreath, garland and two storage bags so that we could share ideas on how to use your holiday greenery outside of the holidays.  

Using a Holiday Wreath on Your Front Porch for All Seasons!

Don't be afraid to pull out your evergreen wreath and use it as a base for year-round decorating!

I tucked faux-seasonal branches into this Alaskan Spruce Wreath, which can be used indoors or in covered outdoor areas.

Since it is the middle of Summer, I used faux flowers and branches in the pink tones. (Yes, I am a lover of all things pink!)

I was pleasantly surprised by how great this faux-evergreen wreath looks in real life. 
It has three different types of faux branches which add to the realism.


Also, the lights are LED and battery operated on a timer which I love!
 It is so hard to find wreaths with a timer for battery operated LED lights!

I did not have to secure the extra branches - I just snuggled them right into the evergreen branches.  The pink colors work for the Spring and Summer.


For the early Fall, I would change the branches to a yellow flower and tuck in some sunflowers!
Oh, speaking of sunflowers, my vintage French shopping basket is full of them!


Now, let's head inside...

Using Your Holiday Garland Year Round

Your garland can come out of the closet too for other seasons! 
This is a beautiful Alaskan Spruce garland that I tucked in faux flowers and faux berries.


This garland has LED lights running on battery and a 6 hour timer too... so it is flexible for any space!


 I added these cute slim candles... I was going to light them, but then became afraid my photo shoot would take too long and I'd burn the house down!


Your garland does not have to be placed on the fireplace this time of year.
 I don't know about you, but I am not running my fireplace in the Summer!
This 9' garland was the perfect length for my long farmhouse table.


 So, why did the evergreen get stuck for holiday decor only in the first place? 
They are all called ever-greens, so let's use them year round!


For this table setting, I used antique plates with new scalloped edge plates, vintage goblets, and burlap placemats.  I love mixing the old and new. 


I used wine corks for name card holders - a task that was not so easy to do as we had to hand cut them!


This table could also translate to a Victorian rose Christmas table with some adjustments - great for those of you who decorate in that style.


Hopefully you were inspired by my ideas to use your holiday decor year round.

These year round ideas are so easy - just add other faux seasonal branches and flowers and... voilĂ !

I was also sent two 36" storage bags... a nice padded bag to store your garland and wreaths! 

You could store both the wreath and garland or multiple wreaths in one bag as it is so nice and big.  
It has a hook at the top so you could hang it up in the closet (you can see the hook at the bottom of the picture).  
This is seriously one awesome storage bag!

  3. Wow Angelina -- I just flipped for your gorgeous wreath and garland! The pinks really pop against the pretty evergreen branches of your door wreath and looks SO outdoorsy-Summery! And the garland made for the perfect farmhouse table setting! Definitely keeping these ideas in mind!
