3 Ways To Decorate For The Holidays With Succulents

succulentdecor-diyfriendly-1000There are reasons to choose evergreens for holiday decorating. It’s a familiar tradition, and they look magical all lit up. But too often, seasonal fir, spruce, and pine are laden with toxins and tossed right after the celebrations are over. Instead, this winter learn how to deck the halls with living, organic greenery: You can use well-placed succulents to spiff up your dinner table, add life to a snowy windowsill, and make funky DIY gifts. Here’s my guide to using them to decorate.

I’ve had amazing experiences this past year working for all the incredibly talented people at Boston Magazine in various capacities, from writer to research editor for the Home and Weddings Magazine, to researcher and contributing editor for the March 2013 issue. I’ve had a particularly great relationship with the Home magazine, edited by Rachel Slade. (You can take a look at this issue and past issues at http://www.bostonmagazine.com/home-design/) and read my articles under my Clips page.

 

 

 

I’ve learned a lot from magazine publishing, and with the summer Boston Home issue on its way, I wanted to post my gratitude for being a featured contributor in the spring 2013 issue, alongside many talented writers and photographers. Boston Home is an absolutely top-notch publication, and it was gratifying to participate in putting together an issue dedicated to some of the best art, architecture, and design this area and the nation has to offer.
