Start Your Holiday Shopping with Floral Décor and Christmas Centerpieces

Although you are pounding the pavement and surfing the Internet for great deals on gifts, you can’t forget all that goes into decorating your home for the holidays. This time-honored tradition goes back to 15th century London. Much of the décor, such as ivy and the colors selected relate to the spiritual nature of Christmas, including the coming of Christ and the use of holly to protect people from pagans and witches. Today though these traditional décor items are purely about the festivities of the holidays.
