Winter Garden Inspiration: Christmas In The Greenhouse Holiday Tour
Christmas IN THE gREENHOUSE hoLIDAY tOUR
Welcome to our Christmas in the Greenhouse Holiday Tour! If you are stopping by from Kim’s gorgeous home & garden blog at Shiplap And Shells, welcome! I absolutely love Kim’s gorgeous lake front garden and her beautiful greenhouse. I’ve learned so many great gardening tips from Kim! I also want to say thank you to Rachel at The Ponds Farmhouse for organizing such a fun and festive tour!
I can’t even believe how quickly December is flying by! Thankfully everything from the garden is now tucked away and ready for winter. (I still am dividing tubers and packing away dahlias for winter). If you still need to clean up your garden for winter, be sure to check out my tips for preparing your garden for winter here. I’m already dreaming of all the beauty that will grow come spring and summer! While I wait, you’ll find me dreaming of a winter wonderland like last winter!
Decorating THE GREENHOUSE FOR THE HOLIDAYS
I made the holiday garlands and wreaths for our greenhouse. After watching a few YouTube videos I figured out how to make my own garlands and wreaths. I will say it took me way longer than I expected and was a fun project that I probably won’t have time to tackle every Christmas season. Once you factor in your time and the materials, it costs about the same as buying wreaths directly from your local farm.
attaching the holiday greenery to the greenhouse
I was able to attach the garland and wreaths to the greenhouse using plastic suction cups. At first I had trouble getting the suction cups to stick to the greenhouse. Even after cleaning the glass on the greenhouse I still had the suction cups slipping off. Then I realized that they were not adhering to the greenhouse because it was so cold outside. I took a hairdryer to the suction cups and warmed them up. They instantly adhered to the glass on the greenhouse and hold the weight of the holiday greenery.
You may be wondering about the inside of my greenhouse. Someday I hope to decorate the inside, but for now it is full of plants and garden supplies tucked away for winter. This year I have a ton of scented geraniums that I potted up and I am overwintering in the greenhouse.
Thank you so much for taking time to check out my holiday greenhouse. I hope it’s inspired you to decorate outdoors for the holidays. Don’t forget to head on over to Rachel’s blog to see her holiday greenhouse decorated for Christmas. I guarantee it will put you in the holiday spirit!

I bought 200lbs of greenery and made 2 door garlands, 1 mantel garland, and 9 wreaths and still had greenery left over. It took so much time! I learned my lesson and won’t try to tackle quite so much again 😉
