Often times, as soon as Thanksgiving is over I am so excited to get out all the Christmas decor.  However, this year due to joining in on this fun blog hop, I was excited to put our tree up a little bit earlier!


I love Christmas and decorating the tree is one of my favorite things to do to kick off the holiday season.  I am excited to share with you how I brought together this lovely  Monochromatic Plant and Nature Inspired Christmas Tree.

What is need to create a Plant Inspired Christmas Tree:

If you know me at all, you know after practicing Landscape Architecture for 8 years – my love of both indoor plants and outdoor plants is REAL.  I was so excited to put together a tree that celebrated the holiday with a nod to my favorite things – plants.

Plant Christmas Tree
For this tree, I did a bit of foraging in my own backyard, as well as purchasing a slew of faux and fake greenery, leaves and palms.

Real + Faux Plants in a Christmas Tree:

For the plant portion of this tree, I used dried grasses from my yard, faux weeping willow branches, Sola Wood peach flowers, Eucalyptus leaves, gold plastic palm branches and frosted pine picks to add a little extra fullness to my tree.

Christmas Ball Ornaments:

The other thing I incorporated in this tree were glass ball ornaments, black and white ticking striped cloth balls and gold tin flower and leaf ornaments.  I was crazy for these soft minty blue glass ornaments from Michaels.  I thought they completed the silvery blue weeping willow branches so well!

And I finally caved this year and got a Split Willow Christmas Tree Collar Basket from Target.  I love how it gives us more space in the room.  I usually use a tree skirt and feel like we are always stepping on it.

How to put plants in your Christmas Tree:

For the grasses I cut from our yard, I was sure to hang them upside down for a week or so to let them dry out in preparation for the tree.  Once they were dried, I simply cut them so there was about 3-4″ of stem and stuck them in the tree.

For the remainder of the faux greenery, leaves, branches and palms, I used a pair of floral wire cutters and similarly cut their stems about 3-4″ long and then stuck them in the Christmas tree.

I was pleased that they didn’t budge or move at all once stuck in the tree branches.

My finishing touch was adding two different paper star lanterns on the wall for a festive backdrop. ( Lantern one | Lantern Two)
