I don't know about you, but the truth is that I'm tired of seeing so much synthetic green in wreaths, garlands and other Christmas decorations. If the rest of the year we love having fresh flowers at home, at Christmas we should continue with that wonderful custom.
If this year you want to join this trend, and want to prepare your own decoration using green and other plants to dress your Christmas house, here you have some species accounts that are sure to channel you to decorate your house during these holidays.
The branches of this variety of fir tree is my favorite to design crowns, garlands and to decorate at home. It is a very grateful spice to work it, and the results are spectacular. Of course, it is a protected species and you have to make sure that you buy it from a store or from a distributor that guarantees that it does not come from illegal logging.
Holly or ilex
Another of the Christmas decoration classics is holly, also known as ilex. Its bright red fruits undoubtedly give that traditional Christmas touch that we like so much, either in twigs to place in the crown for example, or with the characteristic cut green leaves.
Remember that its fruits are toxic to people, and that it is a protected species because in the past its indiscriminate collection in the mountain has been abused, so it must always be purchased at florists, nurseries and specialty stores.
The truth is that mistletoe is not one of my favorite Christmas plants. I know that it is fashionable, that it is the plant of good luck and that there is a habit of kissing under the mistletoe ... But I like this species when I see it in the trees in their natural habitat.
Then, in decorations, it is a species that does not quite convince me. Plus, the white fruit is super viscous when it explodes. However, mistletoe is one of the most traditional species of these dates, and that's why, here you have it.
Poinssenttias are undoubtedly one of the stars of Christmas decoration, either in the traditional red, or in colors such as white or pink. To decorate with the plant itself, or to make Christmas decorations of all kinds with it as we have told you at Decoesfera on occasion. If you have problems to survive, in this post you have some conservation tips for poinsenttia.
Eucalyptus in bloom
Eucalyptus is a plant that earns positions every year for Christmas decorations. The eucalyptus in bloom, both in red and white, it is perfect both to place it in a simple vase and to use it in the design of crowns or Christmas centers.
