I love to put a few touches of holiday in my houseplants. Is this crazy? Shrug! Probably!

Spearpoint ivy trained up 3 bamboo poles, and now ready for Thanksgiving

When I got this plant last year, it was decorated. Since it didn't hurt the leaves at all, I might do it again. Daggone cute, IMVHO!

I used to have some tiny presents on little sticks that were fun to stick in plants. Wrapped cubes of styrofoam with little bows, skewer stick through the bottom. Making more might be a fun kid project soon, I miss them now that you've reminded me to remember them. :+) ...and since plants are everywhere, there's no room for "regular decorations." LOL!

I agree My houseplants have to multi-task - look good and add to the festivities!

So is your plant a "reindeer" philodendron? Hilarious!

Both of your holiday dressed up plants are so cute. I have never decorated the plants but the plants that I display for the Christmas I put them in Gold and silver pots.

Cinta - that's the spirit! Changing out the pots is definitely dress-up too! Thumbs up

Imm711 - Welcome! I'm new too! You'll like it here!

Tiffany - I believe that particular cultivar morphs into reindeer philo sometimes, but only during the month of December! Green Grin! Green Grin!

I only dress up one plant outdoors typically the container of my Sago Palm.

This year, instead of bringing in my Plumeria Celadine, I will just cover it. With a freeze warning for tonight, started to cover it with my shade net and burlap, but it looks a big brown blob in the garden:

Then I remembered I bought this burlap ribbon and tiny ribbons which I intended to put on the Sago Palm container, so I decided, put some on that brown blob..so I think it is a bit better now Hilarious! plus adding some festive holiday spirit Smiling

That is great, tarev! Hilarious! Hilarious!

We do not decorate for holidays, so nothing is done to our plants except for putting a dead moth on a bamboo. I have a picture, but maybe no one wants to see that. Rolling my eyes. It is a very pretty moth, a Sweetheart Underwing. I was pretty thrilled when a child brought it to me, but I hope the next one I see is living.

Have changed it now to its Christmas get-up, just continuing the same ribbons already on my Plumeria. Smiling

Shady - love your syngonium 'poinsettius' nodding

Purple - great idea to use air plants in holiday dishes. Brings a little tropic to the holiday Big Grin

Tarev - just changing the ribbon makes it look like a different plant Thumbs up

Thank you all for indulging me, at least I can pretend I'm not too terribly crazy Whistling Thank You!

Tarev I cannot wait until my Sago Palms get that big. They will complete my tropical look on the patio. The pot is really pretty too.
