“Decorating with evergreens for Summer makes sense to me. I’m an avid gardener, so when I spotted these artificial Dusty Miller and Lamb’s Ear bunches in Michael’s I might have gasped out loud. What a perfect addition to the realistic-looking evergreen wreath!” -Laura
Wintertime in Australia paved way to what is now a widespread celebration. Christmas in July began in 1980 when a group of Irish tourists vacationed in Sydney’s Blue Mountains. Astonished by the sight of snow in July, these visitors asked the hotel proprietor to hold a party called “Yulefest”, which became a smashing success and turned into a yearly event. To this day, countries like New Zealand, Argentina, and South Africa enjoy Christmas festivities every July.
In the spirit of this tradition, Tree Classics welcomes you to Holiday Greenery for All Seasons, a blog hop where 3 bloggers transform Yuletide foliage into year-round decorative pieces that are fit for any occasion.
Join us and our blogger friends, as they display our beautiful wreaths and garlands in their homes and store them for next year’s festivities!

Our kids usually make homemade cards accompanied by a gift.
Now, deciding what to give your husband or dad for Father’s Day can be difficult. This year, I compiled gift ideas for all types of dads. Here’s a list of what you can give the favorite guy in our lives: Continue reading “Father’s Day Gift Ideas for the Favorite Man in your Life” →
