If you’ve followed me from the beginning, you know how I dreamed of having my own Greenhouse. The dream came true last spring when my husband and I built my Dream Greenhouse . I can’t believe it, but we really did it. Since this is the first Christmas, you know I had to deck her out. In addition, I’ve joined some of my favorite Greenhouse Owners to share Christmas in the Greenhouse.
Today’s tour is about decorating for Christmas in my DIY Greenhouse using mostly foraged greenery & thrifted goods to create a festive feel.
Come along on the tour with me and be sure to check out all the other Greenhouse tours listed at the end of my post. If you are coming over from Jennifer at The Flowering Farmhouse, welcome!
Deck the DIY Greenhouse Porch
First, the exterior is filled with foraged greenery from around our property. The DIY cedar garland was a quick and easy project, in addition to the cedar and pine wreath.
Even the rock wall received a festive pine wreath.
You can see how to make the fresh cedar garland on this post.
Foraged DIY Christmas Decor
Here you can see that cedar, pine, pinecones, holly and magnolia were used to transform the front of the DIY Greenhouse for the holidays.
Thrifted Containers Filled with Greenery
Many of the containers are thrift store finds as well as a few road side finds.
Christmas Inside my DIY Greenhouse
Next, let’s take a look inside the greenhouse. Because I wanted to continue the natural theme, most containers are filled with foraged greenery and plants that still look surprisingly good for December.
The DIY Solar Chandelier, which was repurposed here on this post, is filled with a bead garland and greenery.
A Table for Two
On warmer days, I love to use the greenhouse for a impromptu dinner party. Because it’s just my husband and I, the table is set for two.
The bird dishes are a collection from many years ago and are paired with blue pottery dishes I received just after I was married. They are definitely vintage now. LOL
Here a recent thrift store tablecloth adds a romantic touch to the rustic greenhouse.
Rustic Holiday Centerpiece
Instead of a traditional centerpiece, I combined several rustic pieces to create a unique gathering. I used a rustic candle opera, a basket full of pine and pinecones, a green plant and a bottle brush tree.
The bottle brush tree sits on a vintage cigar box and is surrounded by one of the DIY Candle Rings that I shared earlier here .
An Antler tray from Arthur Court Designs helps to complete the center piece gathering.
The Thrift Store Basket is filled with pine and pinecones. In addition, a string of vintage Christmas lights as color to the basket.
Christmas Tree & Stockings
In addition, to setting the table, no greenhouse would be complete without it’s own Christmas Tree and Christmas Stockings. If you like these distressed stockings, the ticking tutorial can be found on this post.
Plant Storage in the DIY Greenhouse
One of my goals in having a greenhouse is to save as many plants as possible for next Spring. You can see that many are stored under the DIY potting table and you can see how to save plants overwinter on this previous post.
This little corner holds a tiny desk to keeping records, however today it is filled with Christmas charm. The candle from Antique Candle co. adds to natural greenery scent within the greenhouse.
The ironstone wall piece was a treasured thrift store find and is perfect for holding fresh magnolia leaves.
Do you want to know the secret to keep fresh cedar garland from falling apart? It’s so easy and I shared it here .
That concludes Christmas in my DIY Greenhouse but there is so much more to see. Next up is Tracey at Hydrangea Farmhouse and she grows the most gorgeous hydrangeas I’ve ever seen. I can’t wait for you to see her potting shed.
