Nougats of different flavors , gifts for everyone, reunions with the family, nativity scenes, grapes etc. Christmas is full of traditions and decorating the house with a Christmas look is one of them. And plants are essential to creating a natural Christmas.
GET THE MOST OUT OF THE EASTER FLOWER AND FILL THE HOUSE WITH SIMPLE FLORAL ARRANGEMENTS
If there is a plant that is an image of Christmas, it is the poinsettia or poinsettia, with permission from the light fir. The red poinsettias are the best known, but we can also find them in shades such as pink, white, or yellow, and the most beautiful: the marbled ones,
Play with the pots. Change the original banks for others of different sizes and textures. Use jute, burlap or wool fabrics in green and red tones to decorate the containers.
WHAT OTHER PLANTS CAN HELP YOU GIVE A CHRISTMAS AIR TO OTHER CORNERS OF THE HOUSE?
The nandina or sacred bamboo, the Christmas cactus, the winter rose or hellebore, mistletoe and holly. And, also, branches of fir, pine, ivy and even heather or a few bunches of red berries.
DIY arrangements: You can make centrepieces by placing some plants inside a rectangular or circular container. Put a bed of perlite for drainage and fill the gaps with a few branches of arizónica or eucalyptus—environment, from Starts for Europe.
Other plans for flower fans: sign up for the floral workshops that many florists will organize in the coming weeks —those of Savia Bruta for Christmas arrangements are at the end of November and beginning of December, but throughout the year they have workshops and courses very interesting—and discover the treasures of Christmas pop-ups, such as Sally Hambleton’s.
You have no excuse to fill your house with plants at Christmas. And it’s not that we want to take away from the Christmas tree or the Poinsettia, but many other winter plants are perfect for decorating your house (inside and out) during the colder days of the Christmas holidays.
To keep it year after year, you must make sure, when you buy it, that it is rooted in its container.
Inside – Keep it away from direct heat sources: radiators, stoves, or fireplaces. Find the coolest and most ventilated place in the house, if possible, close to the windows. Water every 2 or 3 days with abundant water, so that it reaches the roots. Do this in two batches and spray the branches to maintain moisture.
Poinsettias, crowns, bouquets, garlands and centres are unique to create a special climate. Set aside an afternoon to go to flower shops; there you will find inspiration and discover trends and novelties because creativity in floral design soars on these dates.
The Christmas cactus is beautiful all year round with its fleshy leaves, but the fact that it blooms only in December makes it very special to decorate the Christmas holidays.
The intense red of the holly fruits and the green of the leaves make the branches of this plant one of the most decorative for Christmas. Holly is a very resistant shrub that will be ideal in your garden all year round.
Another shrub similar to the Holly and the Fire Thorn but not to be confused with the previous ones. It has very interesting medicinal properties: it is vasoconstrictive and anti-inflammatory. But we like it more for its decorative order now at Christmas.
