Decorate for Christmas with plants you already have

by webdev

December 09, 2011

Indoor plants are some of the best decorations all year round, but when Christmas rolls around, some traditional plants can seem to clash with your evergreens and red berries.

However, it does not have to be so. Orchids are a good example of a house plant that may stand out as non-Christmasy once you have the rest of your decor up. However, this tropical bloom can get festive with the help of some color-coordinating ball ornaments. Better Homes & Gardens suggests placing the plant in a large glass pedestal vase and filling it with the ornaments. Choose balls of all sizes, colors and patterns, coordinating the colors to the that of the orchid.

The same technique works for potted white flowers such as cyclamen or paperwhites. Adorn the soil of these plants with sparkly silver bulbs to give them a wintry shimmer.

Of course, there are some traditional Christmas house plants that decorate themselves during this time of year. Teleflora's Merry Amaryllis will be in bloom for the holidays, as will the Merry Christmas Cactus. If cared for properly, these plants will keep blooming periodically throughout the year, and can even last until next year.
