There are so many quick and easy ways for decorating with palm fronds, branches and greenery and you may be surprised by greenery treasures hiding in your own yard. Today, I wanted to share a few tips and tricks for vase and container ideas that I hope will inspire you to look around your own yard for great greenery potential that would make instant (and easy) beautiful displays.
One of the easiest ways to create a greenery arrangement is with glass jugs. Glass jugs have a narrow opening that holds greenery, leaves and branches in place better than a traditional vase. You can either group of set of jugs together with greenery or simply use one.
I love all the colored glass jugs that are out right now and I found this beautiful set of three on Amazon.

In my own home, I use glass jugs throughout my home for philodendron and palmetto leaves and other branches and greenery from my yard.
Even if you don’t have access to tropical type leaves like philodendrons,palmettos or palms, consider good silk/artificial leaves. Pottery Barn has come out with some fantastic artificial tropical leaves this spring that are very real looking like this super tall 49″ palmetto palm branch.

Tall dried stems like eucalyptus or pussy willow is another option if you don’t have access to fresh greenery.

Look around your yard at trees and even shrubs and just by snipping a branch or two that’s loaded with leaves (like this magnolia below) is another easy way to create a pretty display in a glass or ceramic jug.
Removing the lid off a ginger jar is another option for displaying greenery.

I’m not sure what these greenery clippings are but again, any type of clippings from the yard and shrubs can add that pop of green.

If you don’t have any blue and white ceramic jars, I found this tall 18″ blue and white ginger jar from Amazon that is a great size and pattern combination.

Extra tall ginger jars or garden urns are perfect for displaying palm and banana tree cuttings or large silk stems.
If you want to use a glass vase, the tall cylinder vases are really the best for holding tall stems like these elephant ear clippings below.

Smaller traditional glass vases are great for smaller clippings
So many pretty possibilities and you may be surprised what you have in your yard that could add the perfect pop of green and nature.
Thanks for stopping by today!

Love all these ideas Cyndy! I have recently jumped on the faux (but the real good faux) greenery bandwagon. I never thought I would say that but I love the look it brings and the super LOW MAINTENANCE!

Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful article. I like your tips and ideas and I will sure try at my home.
I love this post. Wanted to know after you cut them off from your yard and bring them in the house do you rinse them off with water?? Or how?
I usually wipe them down with a wet paper towel. 🙂
