How To Decorate Your Home With Plants Post Christmas 

How To Decorate Your Home With Plants Post Christmas 

'Twas 12 days since Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The Christmas trees have been taken down with care,
But a sense of sadness had entered, as nothing else is there


Now many of you may know that this is a slight play onwards to the classic ‘A Visit from St Nicholas’ Christmas poem, but let me explain what we're getting at.

Throughout December many of us become acclimatised to the Christmas tree filling our rooms and decorations lining our shelf and table tops. When the time comes in early January to take them down it can feel empty, sad and less homely. 

But, what if we told you it didn’t need to be…

Indoor plants are the perfect way to decorate and bring life back into your home. Whether you’re looking for those larger plants to fill the empty tree space, some easy-care shelf and table toppers or maybe you have pets and are in need of some non-toxic pet friendly plants


Larger Plants

We’ve crafted a selection of plants 80-120cm in height that are just perfect for filling space. Ones to highlight are the Areca Palm and Kentia Palm that are both easy to care for and have the tendency to grow too much larger heights.

Secondly the larger Spathphyllum or commonly known Peace Lily, which is a fantastic option for purifying the air in your home, which is proven to Increase positive feelings by reducing feelings of anxiety, anger and sadness.


Easy-Care Plants

Houseplant care can often seem like an unknown science that seems impossible to hack. Whether you are new to plants or an extremely busy and forgetful plant parent, we’ve got some ideas for you. We’ve carefully constructed a list of easy-care hardy plants that (yes still need care) but also take relatively low maintenance.

One of our personal favourites is the Sanseveria or more commonly known Snake Plant. This plant is an extremely striking one as it hosts sword-like leaves that are stiff, broad and upright. 


Pet-Friendly plants 

Indoor plants should be for everyone, even the pet owners. That’s why we’ve created a list of pet friendly houseplants that are deemed non-toxic to both cats & dogs.

One we thought we would highlight is new this January, the Pachira Aquatica or often known the Money Tree plant. These are stunning indoor plants as they have stalks that twist and curl into the tree topped foliage. 

Pet Friendly Indoor Plants


So, if your home is feeling empty post Christmas, then join the house plant community and shop our selection of high quality indoor plants. Sourced from the most reputable suppliers in the Netherlands, we never disappoint our customers.
