I’ve been feathering my nest and decking the halls of the Potting Shed for Christmas!
Adding greenery and pine cones to window boxes. . .
to wellies. . .
And to watering cans.
I filled a basket on the door with a mixture of freshly cut cedar, pine, and boxwood. I added the greenery to wet floral foam to anchor it in place and to keep it fresh longer since it has a sunny southern exposure.
A bird ornament flew in to land among some pine cones, along with red apples and a tartan ribbon, for a punch of holiday color.
And the post box is filled with boxwood, cedar and pine cones, along with Christmas Greetings.
My window box is liner free and home to a bird house nesting among the evergreens for the Christmas season~ magnolia, pine, juniper, cedar and a swag of tartan ribbon.
And tartan ribbon is climbing a bird finial topped topiary, replacing the clematis vine that was growing this summer.
My olive bucket is holding pine cones and cedar for the Christmas season. It’s supporting a rake with some vintage garden tools and a basket tied with tartan ribbon, filled with additional cedar and a bird nest.
Nothing says Christmas to me more than the scent of fresh greenery!
I *deerly* love decorating with it outdoors since it’s free for the clipping and easy to sweep up the shedding needles and falling berries.
I sprinkled greenery in my hanging galvanized watering cans and filled the spouts of those with missing roses.
A long needle pine garland adds some green and softness to my bench, replacing the Black-eyed Susan vine.
And I filled a bird topped topiary cone with inexpensive shatterproof red ornaments for a pop of cheery Christmas red, tied off with a piece of tartan ribbon.
A red gazing ball is nesting among the greenery like a large shiny ornament.
Sunshine and temperatures in the high 60s and 70s are in the forecast for the rest of the week, warm enough for poinsettias outdoors!
Help yourself to a Poinsettia Cocktail while you’re here, festive and easy to mix and serve for a party, brunch, or to enjoy Christmas Eve!
No shaking, stirring, or straining required, mixing right in your glass.
I’m making my way around the other sides of the shed with greenery, pine cones and red ornaments. More to come next week!
More to come next week!
How’s your Christmas decorating and nest feathering coming along?
