Size does matter because store-bought greenery made for homes will shrink in appearance when installed in retail, corporate or office settings, where outdoor spaces are larger, ceilings are taller, and the overall scale of buildings and surroundings calls for decorations that are more substantial. In other words, the 5-inch thick garland you pick up from a box store will look downright puny on a commercial Christmas tree or strung along a display at a shopping center.

Your property’s Christmas greenery deserves to stand out—and to create a memorable impression on guests and employees, or anyone who works, shops, dines, visits or simply experiences your grounds during the holiday season. Commercial-grade foliage stands out and stands up to harsh winter weather, too.

As you consider seasonal decorations, here’s what to know about commercial wreaths and Christmas garland so you can select greenery that is suitable for your New York, Connecticut or New Jersey property.

Well-Rounded Commercial Wreaths

They can range in size from 2 ft. to 16 ft. and run even larger for custom wreaths made to hang on the side of a building or in a spacious atrium. Artificial greenery is convenient and long-lasting so you can reuse wreaths for many seasons. After all, these pieces are an investment—though a professional holiday décor company like Neave Décor will offer rental options. Commercial wreaths are not only thicker, the greenery is UV-protected so the color will resist fading. Wreaths can be pre-lit with LED Christmas lights to stand out after dusk.

Commercial-Grade Christmas Garland

Thickness is measured by tip count, so the higher the number the thicker the wreath. If Christmas garland (or a wreath) has a high tip count, you won’t need to use a lot of additional decorations to fill out the look.

The commercial-grade garland we use at Neave Décor is generally 14 inches thick, while the Christmas garland you’d purchase at a store to hang in your home is usually 5 or 6 inches thick. Also, commercial-grade garland comes on reels and can be customized to suit your property’s holiday theme.

Bigger, Better Bows for Christmas Greenery

Flimsy ribbon simply won’t hold up outdoors—and the materials designed for use in a residential setting are not as robust and can degrade the look of your Christmas greenery. On the other hand, commercial holiday bows are made from materials that will not fade and retain their shape. They are scaled to suit larger wreaths and thick garland and designed to last longer than one season.
