Safety Tips for Decorating the Fireplace with Christmas Foliage

The fireplace is often the focal point in a living room and therefore an ideal place to spruce up for the holidays.

As the holidays are the season for enjoying the company of family and friends, an accident is the last thing you would want to happen. Here are a few safety measures to help ensure a worry-free and safe holiday.
