For booster clubs looking for unique seasonal fundraisers, consider holiday decorations.

Holiday decorations, such as wreaths, swags, boughs, and centerpieces, are made from freshly cut conifers, styled to complement the winter holiday season. These products are full and fragrant, making both the inside and outside of any home look elegant and festive. They are equally attractive fundraisers because of their proven way to raise almost any amount of money booster clubs need.

The company is a subsidiary of Dinihanian Floral Products, Inc., a fourth-generation, family-owned and operated company with over 115 years experience in the floral and greens industry. Its decorations are made from the freshest greens from the Pacific Northwest, including high-elevation Noble fir that's cut daily, providing products with the much-sought after lush blue-green color, aromatic evergreen fragrance, and maximum lifespan.
