Decorating with plants...

If you know me then you have an idea that how much I love gardening, plants etc. we do not have big yard but I still try to grow whatever I can in a raised bed behind the deck, in front yard and in pots. As much as I love them outdoors, I like to be surrounded by indoors too and I include plants in my decor, vignettes in every chance I get.

Plants can add life to any dull space and gives a sense of calmness, serenity. I think it can give positive effect to ones brain. It can teach patience and hope. Zen corner like this can help calm and relax mind. sand, rock, soil adds in extra earthy touches.

Most of the house plants also helps in purifying the air. we get long dull winter here and when there is no sign of leaves any where outside, surrounding with plants inside definitely keeps the winter blues away.

I have killed many succulents and cactus, but I think now I have figured out that they love sun and hate over watering. This mini garden is happily growing now on my west side window.

My air plants are also doing well. Recently I have added fern, spider plant and donkey's tail succulents and trying to figure out their needs.

We are in the process of mini makeover of our living, dining room and kitchen and painting the wall so all of these are moved in my bedroom, little crowded there but loving the mini jungle :) will try to share the pics.

"I grow plants for many reasons: to please my soul, to challenge the elements or to challenge my patience, for novelty, or for nostalgia, but mostly for the joy in seeing them grow." -David Hobson
I hope on the occasion of  Earth Day this post inspire to grow a tree or plant. Is there any specific house plants that you like and easy to care then please do share or is there any tips to keep these plants alive :)



Table top today...

Spring is in the air and it's about time to come out of hibernation :) Many festivals have gone by since I posted last here...hope you have been enjoying the life.....


Sharing few images of my coffee table top today. I know I did not show you my coffee table yet but lets keep that for some other day(when I take out my camera)....


I have used brass plate as tray here and yes the candy dish is filled with almonds. Added a small plant, I believe plant/flowers is must in any vignette. I have added tall brass bell Which i think keeps it all balanced and between all prettiness a remote so we can find it when needed.


I don't spread out my vignette on whole table as I don't like clearing out table when my son wants to color , craft or play his toys when we watching tv or just chilling out.

I hope you don't mind phone pics...okay okay will use the camera next time :) 

Do you like putting up a vignette on coffee table? What is the must have thing for your coffee table vignette?
