Why We Use Holly to Decorate for Winter Holidays

Including beautiful greenery in your holiday or Christmas decor is part of a long-standing holiday tradition. We love to emphasize traditions during the holidays because they evoke feelings of nostalgia and warmth. One of the most long-standing traditional pieces of decor is the holly plant. With festive green leaves and bright red berries, it’s easy to see why this evergreen plant is a Christmas favorite. But did you know it has a history that dates back to before the Christian era? At Durocher Florist, we have some fun facts, interesting history and great decorating tips for holly that we’re eager to share with you this holiday season. You may even find some new ways to include holly in your decor! Read More about Why We Use Holly to Decorate for Winter Holidays »
