Best Christmas Trees, Wreaths, and Garlands

Best Christmas Trees, Wreaths, and Garlands

Looking for the best holiday greenery? Check out these realistic Christmas trees, wreaths, and garlands that are perfect for classic holiday decorating!

Artificial Christmas greenery is definitely my go-to holiday decor! Faux greenery does require storage, but it is so much less messy and less expensive (in the long run) than fresh greenery. Faux Christmas greenery has come a long way in the last few years, too, and I’m loving it.

Although my home is not generally decorated until mid-late November, these items often sell out by the end of October, so I wanted to share my favorite realistic Christmas greenery while they’re still in stock. I’ve gathered beautiful artificial Christmas trees, garland with and without pinecones, stems and branches for centerpieces, Christmas wreaths and evergreen sprays, and much more.

For some of my other favorite Christmas decor, including ornaments and wrapping paper, check out this post. And for decoration ideas for Christmas garlands and wreaths, visit this post.

realistic holiday garland and branches for Christmas decorating
  1. norfolk pine garland – this one is my favorite! I used it on our fireplace mantels last year, and I love how realistic it looks and feels.
  2. norfolk pine branch – the branch version of my favorite garland, perfect for pots or vases!
  3. juniper garland – used this for a client last year, and it was simply stunning.
  4. cedar garland – a little sparse, but an incredible price and all 5-star reviews.
  5. pine garland – thick and substantial pine garland for simple decorating.
  6. real-touch cedar garland – a little shorter (only 48″), but I love the texture.
  7. hemlock pine garland – a bit pricier, but excellent reviews and 74″ long!
  8. pale green spruce garland with pine cones – prelit and a soft sage green… lovely option!
  9. boxwood garland – a non-traditional holiday greenery is fun to throw into the mix.
  10. cryptomeria garland – I love the way the branches drape on this garland.
  11. cedar branch – darling little pick for adding greenery anywhere.

  15. cedar garland – this one looks so full and fluffy!
  16. cedar garland – less fluffy look than the one above, but such beautiful texture to the leaves
the best, most realistic Christmas trees, wreaths, and swag for holiday decorating
