Green Garlands for Hanging
Decorative garland doesn't always have to be floral garlands. Hanging garlands made from a variety of different florist greens is very attractive and more economical to make.
There is a "natural" green vine that grows as a garland called Smilax. It is available year round in a medium green color. It is a little more expensive than the other greens because it is sought after for this purpose.
Decorative garlands are high priced when ordered from a flower shop - even costing upwards of $100 per foot. But you can make your own without easily with a product called
Oasis Foam Garland.
It's beautiful hanging on archways, over doorways, windows, cut apart for hanging bouquets, flower girl garlands and more. Such a versatile product!
Wedding garland can be incorporated so many places. This ivy garland is an attractive addition above the wedding table or on he edge of a railing.
Similax is light enough to hang up on the wall. This one accents a wedding wreath and has two floral accents draped with the garland.
This green garland is a combination of pulmosa fern and spengeri fern. Woven thru with a ribbon tie, it looks wonderful on a staircase rail.
