Dress up Your Indoor Plants for the Holidays

Dress up your indoor plants with a bit of seasonal color and decorations.

Stop by your favorite florist or garden center and purchase a few water picks and cut flowers.  Place the cut flowers in the picks and sink them into the pots of your favorite houseplants.  This will add some color and seasonal interest to your indoor garden.

Or create a changeable houseplant container.  Plant several compatible indoor plants into a large container.  Sink a small empty pot in the space where you want to create a focal point.  Set a small potted flowering plant inside this empty one.  Replace it occasionally to freshen up the pot or create a seasonal display.  You can use mums for fall, poinsettias for Christmas, azalea for spring and so on.

Or fill a large basket with a collection of potted houseplants and flowering plants.  The plants can be switched as flowers fade or your mood and décor changes.

A bit more information:  Silk flowers, glittery spikes and decorative ornaments can also add a bit of color and sparkle to your indoor garden.  Exchange these for red, pink and white hearts on Valentine’s Day, colorful Easter eggs, or spring flowering twigs as the seasons change.
