Garlands

Brandon Branch adorns Paula Deen's mantles, doors, gas lanterns and even the kitchen pot rack with about 600 feet of fresh boxwood garlands from her yard. He adorns them with apples, pineapples and limes and changes the fruit every two weeks. Roy Good, owner of Christmas Decor Frederick in Frederick, Maryland, packs artificial garland strands with 2,200 mini lights, berries, and bows and drapes them over a two-story-high front door, the palladium window above the door and the staircase railings. For artificial garlands, says Good, the trick is garland fluffing, or teasing the needles so they stand out.
