Instead of the fresh cedar garland I usually use on the stairs, I opted to make swags from the abundance of greenery which came down in a recent storm, dressed up with ribbon from Paper Mart . (Tap image for sources).
Instead of a single-note pine decorating the staircase of this Connecticut farmhouse, the owners opted for an intricate FiftyFlowers garland that incorporates fresh asparagus ferns and evergreen shrubs.
Style your stairway with beautifully decorated garland at the base around the spindles instead of the normal railing dressing. The result is stunning and you can actually hold onto the railing while on the stairs – functional and safe!
