Kitchen Christmas refresh
Did you know that the kitchen is the most used room in our home? And at Christmastime, perhaps more than any other time of year, your kitchen really does become the hub of the home. From the time we spend there prepping all the food for the big day to baking with the children to nattering with friends and family while warming (and sipping!) the mulled wine. As we spend so much time in the kitchen, we think it’s only right that you get to enjoy some festive sparkle in this area of your home; here are some of our top picks of the best house plants to bring some festive cheer to your kitchen.
Have you seen our Medium Gold Tipped Miranda succulents? They are just perfect for adding some sparkle to your kitchen windowsill, picture these gorgeous gold tips shimmering amongst your Christmas treasures. Or check out our Mini Christmas Cactus Gang for a wonderfully quirky addition to your festive kitchen scene. They’re styled in our fabulously festive green and gold pots and are super low maintenance too, so we think these gorgeous houseplants are just perfect to bring Christmas sparkle to your kitchen.
Create a festive tablescape
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 succulents will add a stylish festive flair in an instant.
To really wow your guests, think about the Christmas Table Succulent Gang as gorgeous place settings that could if you’re feeling generous, double as little take-home gifts for your lucky guests. For an extra dose of bang on trend Christmas magic, imagine what a fabulous statement these oh so stylish, Leopard Print Christmas Crackers from Rockett St George would make alongside your green beauties – yes we said leopard print and we just love them!

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 to 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 in our nursery on England’s south coast, take a look at our Red Poinsettia in Charcoal Stoneware Ceramic that brings the perfect amount of Christmas cheer to your festive fireplace.
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 oh so popular cotton and seagrass, handcrafted belly basket, simply add your favourite baubles and ta-da, Christmas has arrived. In even better news, if you have 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.
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 brand new plant gang; the Christmas Floral Plant Bundle.
This gorgeous combo of pretty florals, a quirky cactus and leafy lovelies add an instant festive flair for the ultimate, insta-ready shelfie. For a super low maintenance yet gorgeously striking option, take a peek at our Christmas Succulent Gang, a fabulous variety of colours and textures to bring your festive shelfie to life. 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. Are you liking the idea of a festive scene on your shelf and looking for a little inspo?
Take a look at the fabulous range of Christmas decorations at Rockett St George, we just love these Gold Paper Trees, they’re just perfect styled next to our gold accented green ceramics for an extra dose of festive magic on your shelf.
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. If you’re a regular reader of our blog, you’ll know that as well as our gorgeous greenery, we also offer beautiful homewares to perfectly complement our plants and one of our absolute favourite pieces is our gorgeous Plant Stand Table. This is the perfect accessory to up style an empty corner and brings some serious Christmassy vibes. The gorgeous, warming copper and rustic mango wood of this table make it the perfect place to showcase an array of gorgeous greenery, particularly of the festive variety. We especially love the Medium Gold Tipped Miranda succulents to add some excellent Christmas sparkle.
Why not dial up the Christmas spirit by adding some beautiful bottles of your favourite Christmas tipple and some twinkly lights. If you’re in need of inspiration, take a look at the fantastic range of Warner’s Gin, we love the rhubarb flavour, it tastes divine and its dusky pink colour looks just fab on our plant table…while it lasts! And bring the Christmas twinkle with the gentle flicker of candlelight in this stylishly elegant Glass Lantern Duo from Lights 4 Fun. Effortless festive cheer, or should we say cheers?
Perhaps you have a dresser in your home that’s just crying out for a Christmas makeover. Showcase some gorgeous glassware along with our must-have My Home Bundle, featuring our ever-popular mix of striking succulents and leafy, green beauties. Choose the green and gold ceramic option and place these gorgeous plants among your glassware for an instant festive refresh.
The guest bedroom revamp
If you read our recent 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, so, 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, try the Succulent Plant Gang or the Christmas Succulent Plant Gang 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! To bring a leafier vibe, delight your guests with the fabulous feathery fronds of a fern, check out the Fern Trio Bundle if you like this idea.
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. Enjoy deciding which of our plants you’ll choose to make your Black Friday dreams come true. As ever, please do send us your snaps to [email protected] when your Christmas makeovers are complete, we’d love to see your urban jungles in all their festive glory. Happy shopping plant people, ‘tis the season after all.
