Decorating with Greenery

Seasonal Table Arrangement

(above) Get the Look: Grab an assortment of bottles you have around the house – they don’t have to match. Cut off pieces of greenery from your yard. Here, Joe uses ferns, yellow ranunculus, astilbe, and coleus, but any wildflowers or ivy will do!

Joe Jumper, owner of The Clay Pot in Riverview, shares how to use fresh greenery to spruce up a home. Whether you want to freshen up your décor or decorate for a party, here are four easy ways to incorporate greenery – in an unexpected way!



Moss on the Landing

Get the Look: Use any old wooden crate, and fill with moss from your yard!

Boxwood-filled Trophies

Get the Look: Boxwood is an evergreen found in almost everyone’s yard. Walk outside, cut off a few branches, and give your trophy case a new look!

Table Wheatgrass

Get the Look: You can grow wheatgrass indoors in about a week. Soak seeds for 24 hours. Fill any bowl, pot, or tray with a few inches of dirt. Drop in about a half inch of seeds. Your wheatgrass should grow quickly.
