As early as the fifteenth century, Stow's of London noted that the Christmas custom in every household, parish and church was to be decked with items of ivy, bays, holm and other seasonal greens. Many of the elders in England will recall the old English mode of church decor of sprigs of holly and yew stuck into the high pews making the churches a miniature forest during the holiday season. In London the Christmas decor extended outside as well when the city light poles, standards were decorated with holiday decorations. Christmas trimming evolved next into homemade trimmings of knots of bright ribbon, beads, lace and paper stars. Lace decorated bags were filled with candies. Seeds, berries, nuts, popcorn and other homemade materials civilized the wild beauty of the holidays past. The stringing of popcorn and cranberries can still be seen on Christmas trees today. Even artificial popcorn and cranberries can be purchased in Christmas stores today. Tree decor has grown by great strides in the past century, making the creative and inspirational holiday decorating more delightful.
Aside from Christmas trees, Christmas lights can heighten the spirit of the season. Exterior lighting especially at night is a sight of splendor. There is a wide range of colorful Christmas lights to choose from such as curtain, rope, net and LED lights. The installation of these lights requires the use of the right equipment and complete adherence to health and safety guidelines. Other Christmas decorations include Christmas wreaths, garlands, wall hanging florals and desk florals. They will amazingly complement the entire Christmas display.
