Hey Friends! Boy, am I glad that you are here. I’m sure that you have been hearing a lot about Christmas in July, right? Today, I am joining a talented group of ladies sharing Blue and White Christmas decor. If you are coming over from my friend, Leslie’s, welcome! I’m so glad that you are here.
You could imagine how excited my husband was when he got home from a business trip and saw that I had decorated the stairway with the most gorgeous blue and white Christmas garland, ever-in the middle of July.
I absolutely love to decorate my staircase for the holidays. There is just something about a beautiful garland draped down the banister. It puts me back to “It’s a Wonderful Life.” Are you watching Christmas movies yet? Blue is my favorite color, yet this is the very first year that I have decorated with blue for Christmas. When you add blue and gingham in the same sentence, you know that is going to be stunning.

I started at the top of the stairs at the first stair post. I attached the “plug in” end of the garland to the post with a plastic tie similar to a zip tie(these ties are reusable and last for years), zip ties will work as well. After the garland had been packed in a storage bucket for a year, I fluffed the garland a bit to make it look more natural.
I tucked the thinner pine garland into the first garland.
See video for full instructions.
Then I added in the snowy pinecone picks, to add a bit of white and whimsy. Get snowy pine picks here. (These picks aren’t identical to the picks that I used but they would look great for this project.)
At the newell post, the larger post at the bottom of the stairs, I added more of the snowy picks and a larger bow for more impact. And now, my poor husband gets to enjoy a beautifully decorated Blue and White Christmas garland for months to come.
