Christmas is a time when you can get extra creative with your home decor. You put the tree up, the lights and everything else you can think of to get in the festive spirit. Bringing in flowers and plants can make it an even friendlier and warmer atmosphere at Christmas.
Bringing in a Poinsettia into your home immediately adds a Christmas feeling to the room. A traditional plant, perfect for a table centre piece or dotted around the home.
Another plant associated with Christmas is of course Holly. Known for it’s deep green polished leaves and vibrant red berries it’s a great decorative plant to use in the home. It’s pretty to use but best kept out of the way, use in wreaths and off low surfaces.
Real or faux ivy is an ideal plant to decorate with for Christmas because of it’s flexible vines. Use it for a wreath, garland or other decorative ways.
The delicate plant with white berries usually hung in doorways to get a kiss from a loved one. No matter if you’re trying to be kissed or not, mistletoe still makes a gorgeous plant for decoration int the home.
5. Pine Branches & Cones
If you’ve opted for a real Christmas tree then you already have some evergreen foliage on display. But using pine branches, real or faux for garlands and decorations can be used in lots of creative ways. Like this gorgeous garland draped across this gilded statement mirror with crystals layered over it.
Eucalyptus is a favourite to use all through the year as well as Christmas. Use bunches of eucalyptus to decorate a focal point like this fireplace draped with eucalyptus and wooden beads. Simple and pretty!
7. Cotton Stalks
Using cotton stalks for decor around Christmas may not be a normal option but it is unique and striking. Particularly if you’re going for a more minimalist style or a Scandinavian look.
Hydrangeas have so many varieties of flowers that it makes it a flower almost difficult not to use. Deep rusts, red and purples might be more Christmas “appropriate” if you’re thinking of a traditional look. But using dried hydrangeas for antiqued Christmas style can be pretty too.
Roses are an elegant and make beautiful decor pieces for Christmas and any other time of year.
