You can purchase mixed greens garland and wreath from your local nursery. Then the fun and personalization can begin. Select pine cones, berries- maybe red, gold and bronze, silver leaves, and if you like a few birds, pears or apples to add to your greenery.decorating entrance

Your nursery can create a bow for you or you can purchase ribbon yourself. I recommend the ones with French wire so you can shape the bow and curl the ends.



decorate for christmas with planter



Utilize your potted urns that you plant flowers in during the warmer months to give you enjoyment all winter long. I plant Alberta Spruce which are compact slow growing shrubs in a planter and then add pine cones, holly, juniper and berries for winter interest.




decorate your lawn with reindeers

If you have children, they might enjoy some of Santa’s reindeers on their front lawn. You can purchase these at your local nursery. I know Perennial Gardens in Bedford carries them. The deer are made of wire and then covered in moss & evergreens – small, medium and large and decked out with a red ribbon.
