Holiday Decorating Ideas from Garden DesignChristmas decorations for indoors and out that will add to the festive feel
Decorating is such a fun element of the holidays! We put together garden-inspired décor to help you get into the spirit of the season. From fresh winter wreaths and garlands to an inexpensive solution for adding a little sparkle to your garden, here are a few of our favorite festive finds:
Pre-Lit Urn Filler
While filling your urns with fresh greenery sounds amazing, sometimes it just doesn't happen. That's why we love this pre-lit urn filler that allows you to instantly create a festive holiday focal point. Plus it can be used year-after-year!
Multiuse is always nice, and we love that this preserved boxwood wreath is not limited to use only in the winter holidays—we can picture using it all year long. Even though it’s made from real boxwood, it’s been treated to last for years. Several customers have commented on its vivid color. The wreath is 16 inches in diameter.
This fresh garland is made of boughs of California bay laurel interwoven with wire so you can you shape it around a mantle, bannister, doorway, or other location. We love that in addition to visual appeal, this full garland adds a pleasing aroma reminiscent of the holiday season. It will dry in place beautifully, and you can even use the dried leaves in cooking if you so desire. It’s available in 6 and 12 foot lengths.
A doormat is a simple way to add a little holiday flair. It’s made of natural coir, which is durable and also naturally mold and mildew resistant. Although you should keep it in a covered area for longevity, the consensus among customers is that the mat is durable. One customer’s review: “Great quality and great price! It has lasted three snowfalls already and heavy traffic.”
If you’re looking for a garland to use year after year, this 6-foot garland—a mix of faux Fraser and Balsam tips—will make an attractive addition to your holiday décor repertoire. Lights come spaced throughout the full garland, so that part of the work is done for you.
Sometimes reaching as large as 8 inches across, Amaryllis blooms are truly a treat—so it’s lucky for all of us that they are fairly easy to grow! This kit comes with everything you need, including a decorative pot and growing instructions.
Miniature LED lights are a simple way to add a pretty little twinkle to your garden. The 33-foot silver strand is flexible, so it’s easy to wrap around just about any object (we think it would look stunning wrapped around a bare tree’s trunk and branches). Customers describe the wire as “thin and inconspicuous” and the lights as giving off a “warm glow.”
Color-Changing Pine Cones
Add a little something unexpected to your fireplace this winter with these color changing pine cones! Burning in blues and greens, the grandkids are sure to have fun watching the fire (maybe with some hot cocoa!)
