Christmas isn’t far away and it’s so much fun getting festive and decorating your home. Fresh flowers, herbs and foliage can be used throughout the home to create a festive feel. Check out our nature inspired Christmas decorations below and get inspired!
Create a warm welcome in your hallway with a striking floral arrangement of seasonal foliage and accents of berries, mistletoe, ferns and pine. Set against a plain wall this arrangement can be really eye catching.
Top gifts with a small fragrant posy. Pick a selection of scented flowers, herbs and foliage from your garden. Tie together with a bow and tuck onto the top of wrapped presents. A beautiful little extra!
Make a living wreath for your front door or mantelpiece. Grab a wire, wooden or oasis wreath and decorate with foliage such as cedar branches or silver dollar gum. Intertwine holly berries, small pine cones, pohutukawa leaves and flowers and any other festive looking plants. You can view step by step instructions to make a Christmas wreath here.
Create living floral baubles with scented flowers to bring elegant beauty and fragrance to your home. Start with a netted wet oasis ball and insert a variety of roses, foliage, lilies, freesias and any other flowers you can find in the garden.
If you have a staircase in your house, instead of wrapping it with faux pine, try draping ivy over the bannister. You can then add in wired berries and faux elements seamlessly.
When decorating your table for Christmas lunch or dinner. Try laying fresh herbs such as rosemary on top of plates or napkins. Not only do they look great but also smell delicious.
