There’s nothing I love more than decorating my greenhouse for Christmas. Come along as I take you on a stroll around my magical greenhouse.
Our beach cottage is a bit different from most houses. We don’t have much of a front porch.
But I do have a GREENHOUSE to decorate for Christmas instead.
One side of the structure has a little brick porch. The other side has a set of stairs, so it’s the perfect setting for holiday decor, don’t you think?
Christmas in the Greenhouse Holiday Tour
I am so happy to be joining 3 sweet friends today for a Christmas in the Greenhouse Holiday Tour, hosted by Rachel of The Ponds Farmhouse. Their links are listed at the end of this post, so be sure to visit them for some amazing greenhouse holiday inspiration.
If you are stopping by from Tracey’s gorgeous blog at The Hydrangea Farmhouse, welcome! I absolutely love her amazing potting shed and the way she decorates with thrifted and vintage treasures.
Decorating the Greenhouse for Christmas
So here she is! All decked out for the holidays. I have so much fun decorating around the greenhouse for Christmas. I change the look so often, I actually wrote a blog post sharing what my greenhouse looks like at different times of the year. If you haven’t seen it already, make sure you take a look. You can also see views inside the structure. She’s full of geraniums this time of year.

How do you feel about vintage sleds? I’m a huge fan! There’s a sled on either side of the greenhouse, with a couple of rustic bells, a swag of greenery & berries, and a pair of vintage ice skates attached to this one.
This red metal license plate reindeer was found at The Great Junk Hunt in Puyallup, WA a few years back, and year after year, it never disappoints. It’s the perfect decoration to add a pop of color to my all-white greenhouse.
I have a confession.
I am the laziest gardener when the weather changes and it gets cold and rainy. So when I saw a blog post written by my friend Stacy of Bricks ‘n Blooms, where she shared how she creates fabulous outdoor containers for winter, I paid attention!
Wreaths and garlands are my favorite things to use when it comes to decorating the greenhouse for Christmas. Here I framed the door with garland and hung a rustic bell wreath. The Cut Tree Farm sign was something I found at an antique mall a few years ago.
Our outdoor bistro lights are on a timer and turn on a few hours every day of the year. I love how magical they make my greenhouse area and gardens look.
Here’s a view of the other side. It was a beautiful evening with the most amazing sunset. Behind the greenhouse is the Puget Sound. If you aren’t familiar with Puget Sound, it is saltwater that connects the Seattle area to the Pacific Ocean.
Our neighbor gave us this vintage bike last summer. I hope to find the perfect baskets and use them to decorate each season.
I didn’t do much decorating inside the greenhouse because it’s so full right now with my geraniums overwintering. But I’m hoping to add some garland and more lights up on the ceiling next year.
You can read my blog post, Everything You’ve Ever Wanted to Know About my Greenhouse to see what the inside of my greenhouse looks like if you haven’t seen it before.
Adding greenery from some of the trees in my yard and some faux berries brighten up the path area around the backside of the greenhouse.
Here’s my other vintage sled.
And my little garden angel. I found her at a cute little outdoor garden shop in La Conner, WA while on a boat trip.
I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing my greenhouse all decked out for the Christmas season, and that it inspires you to decorate your outdoors for the holidays.
Don’t forget to head on over to my friend Jen’s blog, The Flowering Farmhouse, to see her holiday greenhouse decorated for Christmas. She even brings you the beauty of the snow surrounding her greenhouse.

I ask Santa for a greenhouse just like yours included a picture with my “letter to Santa “
and since I have extra good this year ….
Thank you Alexis! Well I think since you’ve been so good this year, you MUST get a greenhouse from Santa. Can’t wait to hear!
Lovely! We have been having some unseasonably warm weather, so I may take advantage of it and “spruce” up my potting bench area.
Enjoy your beautiful Greenhouse!
