Holiday Decorating | Flowers + Plants |

I've spent the past week getting our apartment all seasonly outfitted! And this year I started the holiday decorating with something a little bit different.

I decided that since my favourite holiday decor is usually made up of things from the natural world (flowers, greenery, paper, lights, candles, fruit etc) that I would start my decorating by bringing some bright and cheery winter plants into our apartment. I purchased some potted paperwhites (I just love their snow white blooms), and some tiny evergreen varietals. After that, I thought it might be fun to have a try at making some winter floral arrangements. I purchased boxwood, blue spruce, snow berries, holly, cedar and lots of pretty white flowers.

I love this time of year; Christmas brings a sort of magic to the month of December. But not all of my decor has to do with Christmas. It's the beginning of the winter season, and I like to show that throughout my apartment as well. It's fun to bring winter elements into your home and make the new season part of the celebration. I think these floral arrangements are a perfect example of winter decorating. They're seasonal and festive without being too 'Christmasy'.


You don't necessarily need a shopping spree at Dollarama to make your home look festive. What says Christmas more than a bowl of mandarins on the table? Or a vase filled with evergreen sprigs? The simplest things are so often the prettiest. Understated elegance, that's what the holidays are going to be all about around here this year!

  1. Lovely flowers and plants. Have to buy them for decorating my home this Christmas and will purchase them online from a local Same Day Flower Delivery floral service. Very excited and hope everyone will like it.
