Ringing in the season with greenery in the home
Confession, I’m listening to Christmas music as I write this blog post about holiday greenery. Nat King Cole and pinecones with a whisper of white flocking make me excited for the season. While a Clark Griswold-size Christmas tree is perfect for some, there are subtler ways to deck your halls this season, and still have a big impact décor-wise.
Did someone say pinecones? You might sense a theme developing, starting with this darling Natural Forest Hemlock Stem with Pine Cones. Sure, it will transform your existing faux Christmas greenery display into a wintery delight, but it’s really cute on its own. It reminds me of Charlie Brown’s Christmas tree. Just like that little tree, this stem will bring a nostalgic smile to your face.
Many Rose Buds love a theme and a matching look for the season, and you can’t do much better than the combination of eucalyptus, pine and (of course) pinecones. We brought in a full collection, including a Eucalyptus and Pine Stem with Pinecones (a fine addition to your Christmas vases), Eucalyptus and Pine Garland with Pinecones (looks amazing draped across a variety of surfaces), and a Eucalyptus and Pine Wreath with Pinecones (lush, lovely and Christmas to the core).
Christmastime also heralds heavenly-scented candles back into the fold. I love a pine candle that accurately recreates that scent without having to freeze my eyelashes to smell it. Find festive and wintry candles in our Christmas collection.
But a bare candle doesn’t cut it for Christmas, agreed? Here’s a Arborvitae and Pine Cone Taper Candle Ring in a deep green (and did you notice it also has pinecones)? A creamy white candle as seen here works, but get sassy this season and take an adventure in candle colors - like a bold red.
Speaking of red, a pop of color helps draw the eye to your holiday greenery. A Eucalyptus Seed Berry Stem placed among your other faux greenery stems, such as the eucalyptus and pine one above, helps reinforce that seasonal feel.
Surprise, the stem has a matching ring partner. Imagine the Eucalyptus Seed Red Berry Candle Ring around a deep green candle! It’s beginning to look a lot like you know what!
Subtle flocking transforms your holiday greenery into a winter wonderland. A Flocked Fir Pine Cone Stem is striking on its own or can be added to other faux greenery selections as the centerpiece to your, well, table centerpiece.
It’s been a minute since I brought up pinecones, but I’d be remiss to not share a Gleaming Pinecone Spray with the Rose Buds. How adorable! This is a fun find for the collection. I can think of at least five different rooms where these would work well.
A smattering of pinecones also make a cameo appearance on the Festive Jute Wrapped Hanging Pine Wreath - which I think is the wreath of the season. The wreath practically sings modern farmhouse Christmas. Look at those lush pine branches tied together with rustic jute rope.
We typically think of doors and wreaths as natural partners, but I like wreaths all over the house during this season, and I think the size of the Natural Forest Hemlock Wreath with Pine Cones (did someone say pinecones?) is perfect above your mantel or on a wall. We don’t see enough wreaths on walls at Christmas. Let’s make that trend this season.
Our Real Feel Boxwood & Pine Wreath has such a delicate touch but it’s still hearty and would work on walls or even hung in your entryway. Let’s break the wreath/door mold this year and give wreaths the freedom to happily hang in multiple spots. #freethewreath
Got a small spot that needs a big hit of Christmas magic and love? Here you go, a Real Feel Blue Spruce Bush packs a punch of holiday whimsy but only occupies a teeny space.
I saved the Natural Forest Hemlock Vine with Pine Cones for last for a couple reasons. I think it’s a really unique item for the collection. It brings that rustic outdoor charm into the home. It’s versatile. Just imagine all the spots where it works. And, yes, it’s got PINECONES!
I hope the season is shaping up as wonderful for our Rose Buds. Have fun when decorating for Christmas and tag us in your photos!
