Plants to make your Advent and Christmas pop!

It has been a whirlwind of a year but somehow, we’ve made it to the month of December!

Even though we may not feel like it, it’s Advent and Christmas time once again and even though we have all been through a lot this year, we still must give thanks to God for life.

Celebrating Advent is an excellent way to prepare your mind and heart for Christmas. For a splash of purple, purple petunias and purple orchids will be a wonderful touch. Pink pentas and pink petunias are perfectly subtle, and for the hint of white, white lilies, jasmines, white orchids, and white roses are all beautiful.

To keep the coming Christmas season festive, we can fill our homes and work environment with the plants that represent that season.

Evergreen plants, such as mistletoe and holly, have been used in many traditions around Christmas time. Artificial versions of the plants can be found everywhere at this time of year.

For a pop of greenery, Italian Cypress, Arborvitae (Thuja) and Norfolk Island pine (Araucaria heterophylla) are perfect plants for these.

We cannot forget the poinsettia! This trademarked poinsettia (Euphorbia pulcherrima), also known as the Christmas star or Christmas flower, can be seen by the hundreds at plant shops in full bloom in all different sizes.

They represent good cheer, success, and celebration. These beauties come in three colours: red, white, and pink. For an additional touch, use pinecones in and around your plants.

You can purchase different essential oils and coat the pinecones with them to create your signature Christmas aroma.

I hope you feel the joy and warmth of the two seasons with these and remember, Jesus is always the reason!
