Keeping it “Real”
The Holidays are here. It’s time to decorate and celebrate with family, friends and co-workers.
Every year we “deck the halls” in mostly traditional ways. But have you ever noticed some subtle differences when live plants and trees in fiberglass planters are used to accessorize your decor?
Every year, Holiday trees are bought, used for a few weeks, then they land in the recycle shredding machine. During its short visit in your home or office, your tree requires constant care to maintain color. And, oh, those dropped and dying needles! That’s not even considering the purchase price and set up, and dragging it out at the end of the every season.
This year, try a live Fraser Fir in a Wannsee extra large planter. Enjoy the fresh smell and look of a live tree with sturdy limbs capable of supporting heavy ornaments. The charm of the majestic Fraser Fir will add refinement to your individuality. At the end of the Holiday Season, simply remove the decorations and place this beautiful tree at an entry way for your enjoyment all year ’round. The fiberglass planters are designed to stay pristine in all weather conditions. Next year, begin pruning your tree by reshaping the branches. Be careful not to trim too much – you don’t want holes in your tree. Now you can be ready for another festive season. The Fraser Fir delivers all of that – without cutting down a tree every year.
The Holiday Party
The tree is decorated, guests are invited, menu is set and now it’s time to decorate.
Perhaps it’s time to think “inside the box.” White Poinsettias placed in bright red square or rectangular fiberglass planters will add style to any decor. A high gloss finish will reflect the holiday lights – and your unique style. Placing several around your party area will provide for festive and eye-popping glamour. With some care, Poinsettias too can be kept year round for your next Holiday Season.
Another great plant to add to your Holiday Season is the Winterberry Holly Tree. A fast-growing tree that is hardy in almost any environment produces a bright red berry on a bare limb! There’s no greenery to distract from the red color. Place this tree in a tall round white planter for a stunning focal point. This tree can be placed outside in temperatures as low as -30 degrees. Never fear that the planters will freeze and break, or become brittle like terracotta. It’s fiberglass – strong and resilient! The planter will certainly stand up to the challenge and protect the roots of your tree and provide pristine beauty all year long.
Amaryllis. The Amaryllis flower blooms at different times of the year. It’s important to pick the right Amaryllis if you want blooms from November to December. Three or more placed in the Reade rectangular planter in colors to compliment your blooms will provide more beauty to your overall decorum.
Adding fiberglass planters and live plants to your Holiday traditions will bring elegance and depth to your holiday decor in your home or office for years to come. After all, wouldn’t you rather be celebrating?
