Some of us are dreaming of a White Christmas - but others might be dreaming of a green one.

Here are a ten inspirational ways to create a greener Christmas.


10 Beautiful Styles for a Green Christmas from The Style Files. These images are some of my favourite images this Christmas season. I just love how they have used natural plant material to decorate for Christmas.

Here are some quite wild and beautiful wreaths that is not just for Christmas. Winter Wreaths for Christmas from Windflower House.

Holiday Decor for Small Spaces by Erin Boyle at Gardenista. Not all decorations has to be big here are a few ideas for miniature decorations.

How to pick The Perfect Christmas Tree by Amanda Gutterman at Gardenista. Some of us take a long time to pick out our tree so here is a little guide to help you.

Linda Lomelino from Call Me Cupcake lives and works in Sweden. She bakes, cooks and makes ice cream and have already written two cookbooks. Here she shares her recipe for a soft Gingerbread Cake and she had decorated the cake in a festive Christmas way.



How to make Botanical Ice Lanterns by Erin Boyle at Gardenista. Fun to make and pretty to look at - but you have to live somewhere very cold. 

A sweet little green bulb arrangement from Minna Mercke Schmidt at Blomsterverkstad. Minna is brilliant at using plant materials that she has in her garden and makes beautiful arrangements for the table.

My favourite garden guru and publisher Claus Dalby in Denmark knows how to do light up a garden in grand style.

How to make eco-friendly Fire Starters by Erin Boyle at Gardenista. Give away as presents or use when you make your own fires this Christmas.

The last one is a video where Alexa Hotz, the Managing Editor of Remodelista, shows how to make a very simple garland. 




I hope you have enjoyed my Green Christmas post and have found some new inspiration.

Have a Lovely Floral Wednesday!
