Decorating with Fresh Greenery [and an Exclusive Holiday Giveaway]

We’ve been hard at work wrapping up a handful of fabulous projects this fall and when it comes to selecting floral arrangements for the big reveal, we’ve found time and time again that it’s generally the simple pieces that make the grandest statement. We’re drawn to the organic, texture-laden vibe greens bring to a space and love pulling together arrangements [or arranging a few stems] of fresh eucalyptus, pine, magnolia, and more. We’ve found that we’re not the only ones who enjoy “going green” and, although some of the images below boast a holiday flair, you can select any green available to you and follow suit year round.

BUT WAIT! Before you keep scrolling, we’ve got some exciting news to share:  Some of our fave finds this holiday season are the fresh wreaths William Sonoma will happily deliver to your doorstep. These beauties are capable of livening up your home or office and we’re excited to be spreading a bit of holiday cheer by gifting a wreath to one of our lucky followers!

How to Enter:

1) Like our Facebook page
2) Comment on our giveaway post
3) We will select our winner on Monday, November 28 and will contact that winner for shipping details – so be on the look out for a message from yours truly!



We are so grateful for your love and support, so we hope the rules are easy enough and that you’ll join us for this fun and free holiday giveaway! Now, on to all of that greenery inspo:


Holidays can bring a beautiful sense of chaos along with them, so we love embracing the peace and simplicity that greenery brings to the table [literally]. It’s pliable, has serious staying power, and a heavenly smell; what more could a host or hostess ask for!?

Making your own eucalyptus garland can be easy! Check out this how-to guide from Homey Oh My! We love how they used seeded eucalyptus for texture and depth.


Magnolia is hardy, classic, and maintenance free. Its waxy finish offers up a lovely sheen perfectly suited to the most jolly of seasons, and it looks right at home in chic arrangements, garlands, or even as a texture-rich place card!

Pine, a staple when it comes to winter decor, is easy to work with and smells amazing. It’s classic in nature and immediately lends a timeless holiday charm to every space.

The hustle and bustle of entertaining calls for rosemary with its beautiful lines and rich, relaxing scent. Place a grouping on your serving tray for a festive touch or group it with lavender for a quick and hearty arrangement.
