7 Ideas for Decorating with Ivy
Choose a tiny-leaved ivy such as Anita, Midget or Duckfoot to cover 8- or 10-inch cone frames that stand atop copper pots. You can add ribbon for garland.
Variegated Tussie-Mussie ivy covers a 14-inch topiary wreath you set on a platter and adorn with fresh or dried flowers and fruits. Place a glass hurricane chimney and a candle in the center.
Tuck miniature pink poinsettias in the center of a topiary form to use as a hanging basket or dish garden. Manda's Crested ivy covers the exterior.
Needlepoint ivy clings to a round topiary form in this kissing ball. Drape it with ribbon, add a mistletoe ornament and hang the ball in a strategic spot!
Calico and Manda's Crested ivies line a silver dish topped with a 2x9-inch ivory candle. Tuck in stems of lisianthus, andromeda heather and freesias. They'll last long enough for a dinner party.
Choose ivies in an assortment of types and colors, including some with green leaves splashed with silver or gold.
