Kitchen Christmas refresh
Our kitchen is the most used room in our home and for many of us this is never more true than around Christmas, when we are busy hosting friends and family in celebration of the holiday season. From preparing the feast for the big day, to baking Christmas cookies with the children, to warming the mulled wine to sip with friends, the kitchen really is the hub of the home at this time of year.
So, we think, when we’re spending so much time here, it’s only right that your kitchen should be treated to some festive sparkle for you to enjoy throughout the season. Here are some of our top picks of the best Christmas house plants to bring some festive cheer to your kitchen.
Take a look at our Gold-tipped Miranda Succulents; available in mini and medium, they are the perfect way to add some sparkle to your kitchen windowsill. Just picture these green and gold beauties shimmering among your Christmas treasures. And potted in a choice of our metallic dipped or glazed ceramics, they are delivered to your door, ready to add instant festive style.
For an oh-so-chic addition to your kitchen botanical display, check out our Christmas Trio Succulent House. In this fab set our Miranda succulents have been given shimmering copper tips that perfectly complement their copper pots. This easy-care group of plants will add tons of style and you won’t be stressed out with a time-consuming care routine.
For an equally low-maintenance Christmas plant option, have a look at our Bunny Ear Cactus Duo, which will make a wonderfully quirky addition to your festive kitchen scene. They’re styled in our fabulously festive green and gold pots (or our pink and copper ceramics if you’d prefer), and we think these gorgeous houseplants are just perfect to bring Christmas sparkle to your kitchen.
Create a festive table-scape
Here at team TLB we absolutely love a beautifully laid Christmas table. When you’re entertaining guests during the festive season, the table will be one area where everyone is sure to admire your festive décor so why not go big and include some gorgeous green beauties on your festive table-scape to create some true wow-factor Christmas vibes.
If you fancy going all out on the festive scenes on your dining table this year then take a look at our Mini Christmas Tree and Succulent Gang; the twinkly lights on this oh-so-cute mini Christmas tree paired with the muted tones of the succulents will add stylish festive flair in an instant. To really wow your guests, consider the Christmas Table Succulent Plant Gang, a set of 5 mini Miranda succulents which make a fab centre piece or gorgeous place settings that could, if you’re feeling super generous, double as little take-home gifts for your lucky guests. A final option for a show-stopping table centrepiece is our Medium Christmas Tree and Gold Succulent Gang. This beautiful botanical bundle will add some serious Christmas sparkle to your table, bringing twinkly lights, golden tips and metallic-accented ceramics – what’s not to love?!
Tips on how to style your fireplace
Your fireplace is the true focal point of your living room and what better way to welcome Santa when he arrives down your chimney than with a fabulously festive fireplace display – don’t forget his milk and cookies as well though! Possibly the most festive of indoor houseplants has got to be the beautiful poinsettia. Whether you choose the traditionally vibrant red-leaved variety or the more subtle yet equally gorgeous white-leaved version, there’s no denying that these are the perfect plants for Christmas and will add a super pop of colour on your fireplace. A word of warning though, they don’t love extreme heat so do move them to the middle of the room when you’ve got your fire going.
Here at TLB HQ, we are proud to say that we grow our own poinsettias on our nursery on England’s south coast. Choose our Red Poinsettia in Charcoal Stoneware Ceramic to bring the perfect amount of Christmas cheer to your festive fireplace.
If you think your poinsettia might be a little lonely in your fireplace by itself, treat yourself to one of our poinsettia plant gangs. This gives your gorgeous red poinsettia two lovely gold-tipped succulents for company.
And is it really Christmas in any of our homes without the epitome of indoor festive greenery; a beautifully decorated tree in your living room? Pair your leafy beauties with our stunning Baby Blue Christmas Tree. Styled in our popular handcrafted cotton and seagrass belly basket, simply add your favourite baubles and ta-da, Christmas has arrived. In even better news, if you have the room in your garden, this gorgeous evergreen doesn’t have to be just for Christmas. When the festivities are over, he can be planted in your garden and enjoyed for years to come. A tree you can use each year is a great way to be sustainable at Christmas.
Create a Christmas plant shelfie
The luscious green of indoor houseplants placed on a shelf will instantly add a festive feel to any room, even more so when they arrive in our bespoke green and gold ceramics. To dial up the festive feels on your shelves take a look at our selection of Christmassy bundles. You’re sure to find the perfect, ready-made selection for your space. We are in love with this oh-so-festive plant gang; the Christmas Succulent Family. This simple yet stylish bundle of two medium and three mini gold-tipped Mirandas are sure to add an instant festive flair to your shelfie.
For a super low-maintenance, yet gorgeously striking option, take a peek at our Christmas Succulent Gang, a gorgeous combo of stunning succulents, a quirky cactus and leafy lovelies to add an instant festive flair for the ultimate, insta-ready shelfie. Let these green beauties take centre stage on your shelf or make them part of a bigger festive scene, complementing your favourite Christmas decorations and accessories. You could dial up those festive vibes even more by adding one of our Mini Christmas Trees with lights to your scene.
Create a Festive corner in your living space
Here at Team TLB, we love to create a full-on festive nook in our homes and there are plenty of ways this can be done depending on your space.

The guest bedroom revamp
If you’ve read our blog all about styling your bedroom with indoor plants then you’ll know that placing botanicals in your bedroom not only looks great, but thanks to their wondrous air purifying qualities, they can have a super positive effect on your health and wellbeing too. Adding some greenery to a bedroom is also a fantastically simple way to give a bedroom a fresh new look. Treat your overnight Christmas guests to a beautifully calming and tranquil space to relax in after a full-on day enjoying the festivities. We recommend popping some succulents on the bedside table and a leafy green beauty in the corner to make the room feel instantly and effortlessly alive.
We have some lovely options for succulents; the gold-tipped Mirandas that we’ve already mentioned would work beautifully in a guest bedroom to add a festive twinkle, or perhaps try a Mini Cactus plant or a Hoya Kerrii Double Heart styled in our fabulously festive green and gold ceramics for an oh so stylish splash of festive colour. Or check out the Succulent Duo & Coaster Bundle; giving your guests a lovely succulent to enjoy and a handy coaster for their nightcap!
Pair your choice of festive greenery with a reed diffuser in a luxurious festive scent and a couple of Christmassy cushions on the bed and your guests will feel like they’ve arrived in a Christmas wonderland – be careful, they might not want to leave!
Hopefully, we’ve given you plenty of inspiration for bringing some festive cheer into all areas of your home.
