I knew I wanted the holidays to feel a little extra special at the Trotta house this year but I didn’t know where to begin. A few years ago I saw an image on Pinterest and fell in love…it was a simple staircase covered in lush garland with three perfectly tied ivory velvet bows. I loved the simplicity of it all and how it still felt festive! We have spent so much time at home this year that “decking the halls” felt like a must! So when The Finish reached out I knew exactly what I wanted to do!

The Finish took my vision and executed it beautifully. I really wanted the look to be minimal and elegant and also feel like me. They sourced the perfect shade of blush for our ribbons and added sprigs of fresh juniper to the garland. We used pieces I already had like the stockings, stocking holders, and candles, and added elements like the mirror and Josh Young print. I love how everything turned out and I couldn’t be happier! Every morning I walk into our living room with a smile on my face because it looks (and smells) great:)

Cindy’s {from the finish} Tips

spray live garland once every 1-2 days to keep it fresh and prevent it from drying out

when hanging garland over mantle: lay it in place and then cut it in the center. Reattach on of the bottom ends to the top center so each piece cascades downward. If you don’t do this one side will fan out and you won’t have a symmetrical look!

Fake it! You don’t have to use all real. Pop a little faux eucalyptus or juniper berries into your garland to make it look more full and lush



The Boys absolutely loved decorating their mini tree this year! I love that this will be a new tradition for us and they can have it to look forward to for years to come. Best part? All of the ornaments are kid-friendly! The Finish thinks of everything! I’m also obsessed with this Winter Wonderland version!
