Dress up your Home with Festive Live Plants

Thanksgiving is only three days away and the holidays are right around the corner so let's decorate our tables with live plants! Our friend Justin W. Hancock, editor of Better Homes & Gardens online says, “Live plants are a perfect way to add instant holiday style to any home and they’re affordable and eco-friendly."

These “green heroes” also provide oxygen and clean the indoor air as they provide holiday warmth and year-round pleasure! Here are some tips from the plant pros at Costa Farms to add live plants for holiday charm:

Enhance your home’s proportions and style
Small enough for a table-top display or large enough to be a dramatic focal point of any room, Norfolk Island Pines tuck nicely into tight spaces in apartments, dorm rooms, patios or cozy corners. From 14 to 44 inches tall, the Norfolk Island Pines come fully decorated, or ready for your creative touch with mini lights and home-made ornaments.

Instantly change the atmosphere of any room
Mini moth orchids are a great choice for people looking for a dramatic centerpiecefor their dining room table. Their exotic shape and stunning colors enhance any size room. Mini-orchids are readily available, require easy-care, are affordable, and provide months of blooms with little to no effort.

Select plant-friendly locations
Christmas cactus is a houseplant that looks great during the holidays and will provide years of pleasure. Group them in a decorative container and add sprigs of greenery for an instant ornamental display. Place them on your kitchen countertops or windowsills for a cheery touch throughout the holidays and year-round.

With these simple tips you can enjoy the fall knowing it’s easy to spruce up your home with festive live plants and share the holiday spirit with friends and family. For more information on these holiday plants or to find a retailer near you, visit
