growing up jewish, we didn’t exactly embrace all things christmas or holiday {except for having stockings at our ski house though i’m not sure why?}. but then i married someone who does celebrate christmas and then we had a daughter who is lucky to celebrate both holidays so i decided i’m now all in when it comes to holiday decorating.

my must-haves for the holiday season? greenery + garlands. i’m still outfitting all the rooms in the house but #farmhousedialfano is well on its way to seasonal bliss as you can see above. i get a lot of questions about using real garlands and greenery, and for the first time i was actually tempted to invest in some quality faux garlands that could be reused for years to come. ultimately i decided to stick to live ones but for those of you not ready to deck your halls with items that will shed like crazy and ultimately die, i’ve rounded up some great faux options for you.
