An Easy Update in Less Than Ten

2.19.2015

A few weeks ago I shared this vignette in the foyer showcasing this beautiful rare ironstone punch bowl filled with a lush ivy plant. I knew I needed to disguise the ugly plastic pot, but I didn't get to it before sharing. So now I am going to show you how easy it can be done.




I made a trip to Hobby Lobby and picked up a package of preserved sheet moss.

I just folded pieces of the sheet moss over the edges of the bowl to cover the plastic.

Now, that's much better don't you think and so easy?

It's all in the details.

This plant is really thriving in this spot. I just hope I can keep it going.

This took way less than ten!



I hope y'all will check out some more quick and easy decorating ideas.

  2. Love it....I am using live plants in my ironstone pieces too...I have used the individual pieces of reindeer moss to hide the ugly plant pot but never tried the sheet moss...great idea! Love the ivy in the planter...and if you have a secret to keeping ivy in the house without drying out quickly, let me know!...I tend to send ivy plants to its early grave in the house!...

  3. I hadn't even noticed that- I was too busy looking at the wine jug beside it!! I also use spanish moss to do this, but it sheds and is messy! Now I think I will switch to the sheet moss :}

  9. I always kill every plant I have. (I think it is because we have soft water and I never go outside to bring in regular water when I water the plants!) Ha! But anyway...I do your moss trick when I use realistic faux plants in my ironstone pots and bowls! It does look so much nicer! :)

  16. Pretty update--- love the ironstone I love ivy but have to watch it carefully if I bring it indoors--spider mites can be an issue for me. I often rotate my plants inside then outside. I live in Alabama so I can usually keep them on our covered porch during then winter (except this week).
