Porch Poinsettias

 ~ porch poinsettias ~
Okay, this is a dreadful photo with a dreadful background but, trust me, I'm doing the best I can with what my plate is holding right now. You get the idea...faux...ahem, la dee da, fake poinsettias tarted up in a pot, tied with floral paper and bow, stuffed into the back porch planters resulting in a bright spot of color. It does work, especially at night with all the candles, folks dressed up...and not like Eskimos... and ready to come into the house for good Christmas cheer. I'm not a fan of fake flowers but really. In our harsh winters, that spot of color on either side of the porch entrance looks quite nice. I just can't bring myself to kill real flowers by placing them in the frigid cold but these will stay until the company Christmas party and then be put back in their plastic bag and stored in the garden shed until next year.

Ho Ho Ho.

Blessings ~ bright, beautiful color ~
Merry Christmas,


  1. ...which reminds me I have to drag my moms fake poinsettia out of the basement, take them out of the garbage bags and bring them over to her house.

  2. They don't look fake, and it's nice to know they'll survive the weather! Good job!

  3. Those flowers look quite realistic and I'm sure they are lovely against the house and the snow. Once upon a time, I turned up my nose at phony flowers, but not any more with the current fake flower technology. hmmm, "fake flower technology" --now that does sound la di dah. lol
    Merry Christmas!

  4. I did the same thing.....almost. I cut some boughs from the ugly cedar tree and stuck them in the 2 planters on the front porch and threw in a few fake pointsettia blooms for a little color. Looks good to me.......but didn't turn out as good in the picture I took! :) Enjoy. Take care and God Bless.

  5. Lovely Christmas / winter porch adornment.You mean it is FAKE ????

    I think we have all cheated a little when it comes to winter foliage. I like to add real fir and cedar bough cuttings to fake poinsettia for my porches too. The real poinsettias do well in my sun-room though.

    Lovely poinsettias you have there Sandra~ very festive.

  6. christmas is NOT christmas without one of these short lived plants

  7. I think it's a great idea! They look lovely!
