Blue and White Chinoiserie – What Is It? & Why You Need It!
Blue and white chinoiserie is a beautiful and timeless design style that combines elements of Chinese art and culture with a color palette of blue and white. It originated in the 17th century when Chinese porcelain started to be imported to Europe, and it quickly became popular among the elite.
My friend Laurel over at Laurel Home is a huge fan of blue and white Chinoiserie and you can learn more in her Chinoiserie Decor – What is it? & Why You Need it here post.

Blue and White Chinoiserie Pots
I found these three blue and white chinoiserie pots this past summer at a garden center in New Hampshire.
And I thought how simple it would be to just add a few evergreen branches to them for the winter.
My neighbor had recently dropped off a very large evergreen branch that had fallen in his yard, which was now all covered in snow under our large Vermont Maple tree.
Bonus, as the snow just adds to that evergreen winter-looking charm that I was going for!
How cute and easy are these blue and white Chinoiserie pots with evergreens?
I love them simply sitting on the corner steps of our front porch at our home here in Vermont.

It’s a bit chilly here in Vermont in the winter; therefore, this table serves only as a decorative piece over the winter months.
The blue and white chinoiserie pots with evergreens add a nice decorative feel to this empty table in the winter.

Blue and White Chinoiserie Pots in the Mountains
The day after Christmas, I moved the blue and white pots and evergreens over to our back deck next to our hot tub.
The mountains as their backdrop were just priceless to see.
This is such a simple way to change things up outside after the holidays.
