Ask Balsam Hill with Dagmar Obert: On Storing your Foliage Décor

Share Button

Dear Dagmar,

Most of the holiday decorations in our home this year are foliage-based. I want to store them properly so they will still look great for next season. Can you share some ideas on how I can store my wreaths and garlands properly?

Dear Rachel,

To keep your wreath looking vibrant, prevent it from being squished during storage. Keep it in a box with more than enough space like a large plastic container. You can also hang it from a clothes hanger to keep it away from larger boxes. Invest in storage products like Balsam Hill’s wreath storage bags, which are designed to keep your wreath in its best shape for the next holiday season.

Garlands can be stored in large boxes too. Make sure to wrap them first in tissue or bubble wrap to protect their needles and embellishments while not in use.

A Wedding with a Touch of Christmas

Share Button

This Christmas will be very special for my daughter because she and her husband will be celebrating their first Christmas together as husband and wife. She got married this past November and it was such a joyous life event for our family. Weddings are a blissful occasion and each one always has a unique presence of its own.

I think a wedding should reflect the personality of the bride and groom. My daughter absolutely loves Christmas. In fact, she would turn on Christmas music immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. The Christmas tree was an element that I knew is so indicative of who Abbey is to our family. She is the family girl who makes sure we get together during the best times and coordinates schedules to make getting together much easier. It was a delight to reflect all the aspects of who Abbey is by giving her wedding venue a hint of Christmas.
