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.
