Loving Winter Garden Style


I love garden style. It seems a natural choice to bring out the garden decor when it's time to decorate with evergreens. I've used this short pot stand to serve from before, and now it's showcasing my boxwood wreath on the table.




I prefer to use live plants and flowers when I can. The boxwood will eventually dry and fade, and have a different kind of beauty.



My white Italian terracotta planter might have a miniature juniper tree or two later on, but now it's filled with spanish moss and acorns. (At least I think that's what they are. The children brought them home from the park, and they're huge. About two inches long and heavy.)



The moss and nuts are supporting my decorative plate, but the planter would be perfect for any number of things, from bling to books.




Natural elements can be a part of the decor in any season.




For now, while everything seems brittle and brown outside, it feels wonderful to bring a tiny bit of an evergreen winter garden indoors. . . .































I haven't made a trip to the nursery or florist yet for cut greens. I can't wait! It's time for a little pinecone gathering too. We have a little neighborhood tree lot right around the corner where we always get a tree. But we have to find room first!

 I hope you're enjoying a bit of evergreen too!
Ciao! for now!

I am like you and always decorate with real plants and things from nature most expecially at Christmas. It makes such a difference. I am NOT a faux plant person at any time. I thoroughly enjoyed your post. It was lovely.
