Winter weather frost can make your lawn look a little brown and sad, and those overcast dreary days can be a challenge for anyone. Holiday greenery is a great way to balance out the winter doldrums and add warmth, sweet smells, and a fresh bit of nature to your home, both inside and out.
Whether mixed into a cut arrangement with fresh colorful flowers or fashioned into a great outdoor accent, we love holiday greenery!
Very few things smell more like Christmas than fresh pine. Pine trees make great Christmas trees, but you can also use simple pine sprigs and cones to decorate around the house. Some pine branches, a few cones, and some bright red holly berries look beautiful in short metal or wooden containers. Pine is versatile enough to enhance a broad variety of design, from classic, to chic, to rustic.
Juniper is great for festive, unique projects. Try taking a toy truck and filling the truck bed with cuttings of juniper for a cute holiday decoration that can be given as a gift later! Once the toy truck has done its holiday duty, of course. Juniper boughs are also great for wreath making. A few small berries and glitter picks will make a perfect little wreath to hang above the fireplace.
Cedar and balsam are holiday staples. Mantles around the globe are sure to be graced with luscious cedar and balsam garland this year. Add a big candy apple red bow and drape it above your front door to create a grand entrance. Cut greenery also lasts longer than many other varieties of fresh flowers, so it’s a great way to add some warmth throughout the holiday season.
Greenery in cut arrangements during the winter is a great way to add depth and texture to your holiday decor, and there are so many options to consider. Just remember that some are highly fragrant, so it’s best to avoid sending those to hospitals or anyone that might have allergies. If you’re concerned about that, consider choosing an artificial greenery that you can accent with artificial or fresh flowers to enjoy the feeling of a beautiful arrangement without any allergy concerns.
