24 indoor plant decor ideas—from the nursery to kitchen

And make us want a green thumb, too.

plant decor ideas

As a mama, there are many things we say "no" to on a fairly regular basis: "No, you can't have any more snacks," or, "No, that's enough screen time" seem to be our go-to phrases these days. But we can't say "no" to verdant greenery throughout our home. Plants have a way of making us feel good and we love having them around, especially in a nursery where it's essential to promote good vibes and tranquility. We also love them as teaching tools when trying to enlighten little ones about responsibility.

And if you're in need of kid-friendly plant options, we have you covered too. "Kid-friendly plants to consider include African violets (the blooms are edible!) spider plants, haworthia, burro's tail or echeveria, which can tolerate a missed watering or two if you're super busy," says Amy Enfield, Ph.D., a horticulturist for ScottsMiracle-Grow.

We scoured the internet and found indoor plant decor is anything but basic. Some tiny plants can fit in your palm, others are close to 3-feet tall, but all of them comprise some of the best greenery we've seen and we're dying to share them with you.

Sorry, you can’t meet our baby yet

Thank you for understanding. ❤️

In just over three weeks, we will become parents. From then on, our hearts will live outside of our bodies. We will finally understand what everyone tells you about bringing a child into the world.

Lately, the range of emotions and hormones has left me feeling nothing short of my new favorite mom word, "hormotional." I'm sure that's normal though, and something most people start to feel as everything suddenly becomes real.

Our bags are mostly packed, diaper bag ready, and birth plan in place. Now it's essentially a waiting game. We're finishing up our online childbirth classes which I must say are quite informational and sometimes entertaining. But in between the waiting and the classes, we've had to think about how we're going to handle life after baby's birth.

I don't mean thinking and planning about the lack of sleep, feeding schedule, or just the overall changes a new baby is going to bring. I'm talking about how we're going to handle excited family members and friends who've waited just as long as we have to meet our child. That sentence sounds so bizarre, right? How we're going to handle family and friends? That sentence shouldn't even have to exist.
