Easy Ways to Bring Your Garden Indoors During the Holiday Season

Succulent table decoration

Save time and money with these decorating tips!

Paula Spletter, NHG’s creative director extraordinaire (and long-tenured Dallas County Master Gardener) loves color and texture, but doesn’t rely solely on blossoms to get them for her seasonal decor. Her favorite? Super-hip succulents, of which she keeps a good supply growing in her garden year-round.

Holiday Decorations Using Your Garden

You’ll need:

  • a pumpkin
  • a small handful of moss (sheet moss is ideal)
  • a variety of succulent cuttings, preferably snipped and allowed to dry for a day or two before use
  • a hot glue gun

Affix the moss to the top of the pumpkin with a few dots of hot glue; allow to dry. Arrange the succulent cuttings on top of the moss; be sure to include a variety of colors and forms as well as small and large cuttings to create a nice composition. Affix each with a drop of hot glue.


For larger pumpkins, Paula often finishes her creation with dried tips of branches, small pinecones, or even nuts. These mini-pumpkins make fabulous place card holders for a Thanksgiving table, too! Paula considers them a sort of long-term floral arrangement, noting that they’ll last about one to two months indoors.


Paula’s blending of succulents with other textures also extends to holiday plating. Here, she uses a simple white cake plate and adds a nest of green Spanish moss (Tillandsia usneoides). With snips of garden greenery—here, Camellia, Boxwood, Yaupon Holly, Junipers, and Magnolia—she layers the succulents to create a unique composition, finishing it with a bright green apple and a few dried almonds in the shell.

Succulent table decoration

It’s a fresh, low-cost way to bring the garden indoors this season, and perfect for the holiday table. Paula’s final tip? Up the ‘heirloom’ factor by using a cherished vintage dish or add interest with collectibles or even costume jewelry.
