It's that time of year — to deck the halls for the holiday.

In times of old, most decorations looked the same. But in recent years many people are pushing for unique, up-to-the-minute style at Christmas time, just as they do in fashion and furnishings.

Russ Barley, owner of Emerald Coast Flowers and Decorating in Freeport, spoke to Seagrove Garden Club members Wednesday about the latest trends and demonstrated how it's done.

In recent years, many trees sported shades of mauve and chartreuse or lime green.

Not this year, said Barley.

"The chartreuse is going away and the traditional red and Christmas green are back," he said.
