As the holidays conclude, so too does Balsam Hill’s Showroom Sale. As a token of gratitude to all who participated, we would like to look back at what took place last December during the special event dedicated to our Bay Area blogger friends. The night was definitely a night for the holiday-decorating enthusiast, with décor giveaways, a wreath decorating contest, and of course, great wine and good food.
I recently bought a white Christmas tree for our home. Can you give me advice on how I can better care for it so I can keep it looking pristine?
To keep your white Christmas tree clean and pristine, I suggest you store it as soon as the holidays end. This will reduce the amount of dust it can accumulate. However, before you do that, you must first clean the tree and its tips with a feather duster or a bottlebrush. You can use the vacuum to get some dust off, but use it carefully and with caution. Wrap it up in paper then keep it in the Christmas tree storage bag it came in. Make sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions if there are any.
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?
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.
Coming from the success of our 12 Bloggers of Christmas Campaign, excitement is definitely running high at Balsam Hill—especially with Christmas just days away. In this post, we share 10 more reasons why the holidays are extra merry for all of us here at Balsam Hill. Our high-quality products have been making rounds in the blogosphere, and we are doubly happy that they have put smiles on the faces of several décor enthusiasts and their families. Let’s look at how some designer-bloggers used Balsam Hill’s holiday décor to spruce up their lovely homes.
Megan of Balancing Home gave her front porch a well-deserved makeover after seven long years, and Balsam Hill was her holiday décor of choice. Megan’s home now welcomes guests with a refreshing ensemble of Bay Laurel with Mixed Berries Foliage, featuring a wreath, garland, and topiaries. She also added touches of red using our Holiday Script Coco Welcome Mat and, Megan’s personal favorite, our Leather and Brass Belsnickel Bells. Read This Entry
