Time to start your paperwhites!

Nothing says Christmas to me like fresh greenery in decor. It's just not Christmas for me without the smell of pine throughout my home. Every year, I plan to compliment my fresh greenery with pretty pots of paperwhites and I forget to plant them on time. Not this year. It's November 1st and I'm on it!

A couple of years ago, I found this great post on Pure Style Home about forcing your bulbs. I'm going to plant mine this weekend. I can't wait to see the little shoots of green sprouting. If you want some in time for Christmas, it's soon time to get them planted!

Good luck!


  1. Thanks for the reminder! I always think about planting Paper Whites too & it's always too late. I am going to get mine planted this weekend.

  2. I do paperwhites every year and mine always bloom a little earlier than I'd like, so I'm giving it a few more weeks. How did it get to be November already?

  3. I so want to do this year. Kate's Creative Space had a great post about them too. I fear though that these will be just another thing that can't survive my black thumbs.

  4. I'm actually going to give it a whirl this weekend as well. I'm going to try mine in a glass vase. What type of vessel are you going to be using?

  5. Extremely good information, logging at the time and effort you put into your blog and detailed information you provide. I’ll bookmark your blog and visit it weekly for your new posts. Have nice future
