Decorating with Fresh Greens: Nature’s Touch for Your Festive Home

The festive season is upon us, and what better way to embrace it than by bringing the beauty and aroma of the forest right into our homes? At Flowerland, we believe in the power of nature to transform spaces and elevate moods. This year, let’s explore the magic of fresh greens – a simple, yet profoundly beautiful way to decorate your home for the holidays.

The Essence of Nature: Phytoncides and Well-being

Did you know that the enchanting scent of evergreens is not just delightful but also beneficial for your health? Plants like Pine, Fir, and Cedar emit phytoncides – essential oils that have been shown to reduce stress and cortisol levels. These natural oils, with their stress-reducing properties, offer a gift of wellness alongside their nostalgic appeal. Imagine your home bathed in these soothing scents, creating a serene and healthful environment for you and your family.

Preparing and Caring for Your Fresh Greens

To ensure your green decorations remain vibrant throughout the season, here are some tips from Flowerland’s experts:

  • Before arranging, cut the ends of the branches and let them soak in water. This helps them absorb moisture and stay fresh.
  • Consider using an anti-desiccant spray, available at Flowerland, to seal the pores on the leaves and help retain moisture.
  • Display your greenery away from direct sunlight and heat sources. Indoors, keep them away from heat vents; outdoors, they can last well beyond New Year’s Day.

Decorating with Fresh Greens: Tips and Ideas

Transforming your space into a festive home is a delightful experience with our selection of fresh greens. Here are some creative ways to use them:

Mantel Magic

Drape Fraser Fir & Cedar mixed garland along your mantel for a classic holiday look. Intertwine fairy lights and add Pine cones for an extra sparkle.

Festive Doorways

Frame your doorways with lush Douglas Fir garland. You can embellish it with ribbons or small ornaments for a more personalized touch.

Table Centerpieces

Create enchanting tablescapes using small branches of White Pine. Place them in a decorative vase or lay them down the center of the table, adding candles for a warm, inviting glow.

Nature-Inspired Wreaths

Craft your own wreaths using a mix of greens like Incense Cedar, Juniper, and Noble Fir. Add Red Twig Dogwood from your garden for a pop of color.

Staircase Swag

Garland winding up your staircase banister, using a Fraser Fir & Cedar mix , creates a dramatic and inviting entryway.
