Hanging o’ the Greens December 17, 2009

Posted by hollyspinner in Uncategorized.


Sing hey!  Sing hey!
For Christmas Day;
Twine mistletoe and holly.
For a friendship glows

In winter snows,
And so let’s all be jolly!

Five Fabulous Things about Christmas Greens

1. Holly and Ivy look great together in the garden

2. Live greens are eco-friendly (can we just say compost).

3. Greens decoration can be so elegant or rustic but always beautiful

4. There is such a rich history behind decorating with evergreen, holly, ivy, mistletoe, and rowan

5. Greens entertain more than one sense, enticing the nose as well as the eyes.

  • Think green.
  • Spend the green on charitable causes that are close to your heart.
  • Decorate with live greens if you can.
