In this episode of her Mayesh Design Star series, Christy Hulsey shows us how she dresses arbors using smilax.  Arbors are perfect for wedding ceremonies, event decor and photo backdrops. Smilax is a great greenery to use on large-scale pieces like arbors and chuppahs. Christy gives us tips on keeping it fresh to get the longest life out of it and in some cases reuse it.

For this particular design, Christy used about half a box of Southern Smilax.

Availability: Typically Souther Smilax is available August through March with a slight chance of getting some in April and July.

    This is great! How did Christy attach the smilax to the arbor? I know smilax is quite viney and can wrap around structures, but does it need to be secured with zip ties or wiring?
