As you deck your homes with Christmas decor, don’t forget about filling your vases with winter stems and branches to ring in the season! If you didn’t know, I’m a huge proponent of using seasonal stems throughout your home to swap your decor from season to season easily. I always recommend heading to your own yard and clipping any seasonal branches you have, but I also keep a collection of faux stems up in the attic for all seasons. I figured it would be fun to do a little show-and-tell of all the winter stem moments over the years, plus recommend a selection of favorites at every price point.

In our cozy bonus room, I love how the greenery instantly lends a festive touch to the muted blue. It’s a gentle nod to the season that feels just right.

Moving to our dining area, the subtle greenery complements the blue-gray botanical wallpaper, proving that winter decor can be both refined and understated.

This is a snapshot of our dining room before we added the wallpaper, and it just goes to show how simply adding a vase and stems can bring a room to life.

And let’s not forget the kitchen, where even the smallest sprig can make a difference. I love how the greenery by the store really complements the wreath on the hood, tying it all together.
For those of you inspired to bring a hint of winter’s beauty into your own homes, we’ve put together a round-up of my favorite faux branches and stems at every price point. Whether you’re dressing up a mantle, creating a centerpiece, or simply adding a touch of green to a side table, these pieces are sure to elevate your decor.
