HERBS IN BROWN PAPER BAGS BAGS FOR CENTERPIECE

LOVE MY HERB GARDEN CENTERPIECE

My family room smells amazing. It took me a hot minute to realize the fresh mint scent was from my DIY indoor herb garden centerpiece.

To double my odds for garden success I created an outdoor garden from this find.

HERB CENTERPIECE

Do you know what else happens with an indoor garden?

It turns out fresh herbs are a natural room air freshener.

Our family room gets great morning and early afternoon sun which is perfect for my basil, mint and thyme.

Like most of my one-hour projects, this herb garden arrangement was a happy accident.

I moved my herbs (in their original plastic wrap) to the family room to test how they would do with the sunny location (versus the north-facing window above our kitchen sink.

I like to start my herbs inside because Colorado has a fifth season called fake spring. Keeping my herbs inside means I can keep them from the overnight snowfall.

The best part of keeping the herbs in a basket (or crate) is it is easy to move the live centerpiece depending on theroom’s light or the season.

Grouping my starter herbs on a tray or basket makes it easy to water them.

HERB GARDEN LIST

  • basket or crate
  • herbs (and dirt)
  • I like to place smaller herbs (the ones I buy in the produce section at Kroger) in brown paper bags filled with dirt.
  • It gives them a casual vibe and easy to upgrade to a pot as they grow.

I love to get out of my decor comfort zone and push my creativity and curiosity.

I decided to keep the herbs in a ow profile tray to not disrupt the Netflix view.

The fresh herbs smell wonderful.

Our family room gets morning sun and afternoon shade. The unexpected bonus is our family room smells amazing.

INDOOR HERB GARDEN IN A BASKET

I love my indoor herbs. If you live in the city or in an apartment or rental this is a great way to get in touch with your inner gardener. And if you keep them on a tray it is an easy way for a friend to babysit your herbs while you are out of town.
