Let your plants showcase your Christmas theme

What's the theme of your Christmas celebration at home? Are you going for the classic vibe with red and white touches? Or do you want to experiment with hints of blue? Whatever you decide on, don't leave out your plants! Spruce up your plants and plants according to the theme. Make use of colorful ribbons, glitters, and paint.

Create your own wreath

Who needs a faux wreath when you can create one using your favorite plants? Prepare the wire and with the aid of pliers, create a circle. Add leaves, a few pieces of rosemary, and a couple of flowers to spruce it up. Since it can wither, you can prep this just in time for Christmas lunch or dinner.

Hang it by your door as if to welcome guests into your home.

Use succulents as trimmings

Tired of the usual balls and embellishments that you put on your tree each year? Be creative and try working with succulents and air plaints. Choose the plants that can survive even without sunlight and water. Your tree wouldn't be the same and we're sure that your friends and relatives will adore it, too!
