Winter Plants for Decorating

Pin It
I love to use fresh plants to decorate with.  Here are some ways we have used things that are in season to spruce things up a bit. (Spruce, I get it!)

A mixed garland of berries and greenery.

These red berries are so pretty.

Pretty white Poinsettias set around in boxes or baskets.

Persimmons in a cement birdbath.  I love the pop of color they add.

Live garland draped across the window.  It smells so nice!

This is a live wreath that is being used as a centerpiece on the primitive farmtable. 
 Pinecones look pretty also, in a big jar.

Big bunches of Nandina in the urns on either side of the door.

Most of this can be found by taking a hike into your own yard, (or neighbor's).  JK.
My point is, you don't have to spend a lot of money to brighten, or yes "spruce" things up a bit.
