Country Sampler Holiday Homes December 2018 - - Holiday Basics - DE­SIGNED AND PHO­TOGRAPHED BY MAR­IAN PAR­SONS OF MISSMUSTARDSEED.COM.

For Mar­ian Par­sons of Miss Mus­tard Seed, dress­ing her chan­de­liers with sea­sonal green­ery is a no-brainer when it comes to her Christ­mas dec­o­rat­ing. How­ever, if you’ve never twined greens among your light­ing, it can be dif­fi­cult to know where to start. Mar­ian sug­gests first lay­ing down a length of pine rop­ing loosely around the arms of a chan­de­lier, push­ing the green­ery down to keep it away from the lights. Let the green­ery hang at in­ter­vals. Fin­ish by tuck­ing in sprigs of a dif­fer­ent type of ever­green.

DON’T LET IT DROP

No one wants a pine branch to sud­denly drop onto the hol­i­day roast. Pre­vent such a catas­tro­phe by us­ing pieces of flo­ral wire to se­cure the green­ery to the light fix­ture.
