A Simply Southern Christmas
To create a simply southern Christmas, you need some basic ingredients: magnolia, poinsettia and a little bit of the outdoors! This magnolia tree is beautiful both inside or for balcony christmas decorations! If you’re looking for Christmas balcony ideas, this tree along with artificial poinsettia plants for outside may be just the right look for you!
So, you set the table in October to use with your family all October and into November. Thanksgiving as come and passed, and you’re tired!
When it comes to decorating the tree – make life easy for yourself and take everything you used in that fall tablescape, and pop it into the tree! Add a few holiday touches and voila! You have a Christmas tree that didn’t require taking things out of the attic, storing the fall stuff or spending exorbitant money!
Here’s what you need:
- 8-12 bunches silk magnolia leaves per arrangement
- 8 Magnolia flowers per arrangement (you can get away with less)
- 8 Velvet Poinsettias (or use faux ones if you’re using it outside)
- 2 bunches Faux berries
- 4 Large Magnolia Flower (optional)
- 7 Pinecone Picks
- Slim Green Tree
Artificial Poinsettia Plants for Outside Balcony Christmas Decorations
balcony christmas decorationsFor this southern inspired Christmas tree, I put placed the stems in a row for a cascading effect, and added sprigs of blooms throughout. I placed the pinecones and berries as colorful and texturized accents around the tree.
To act as a tree topper, I used the poinsettias and large gardenia blooms.

Can this be an outdoor tree? I think so! In a covered porch area, though. The magnolia should last outside, and if you buy the OUTDOOR ARTIFICIAL poinsettias you should be ok. The berries are outdoor approved. I would skip the blooms though if it gets rain.
The KING OF CHRISTMAS tree is made of pure PVC so it should be alright. Be sure to place in a covered porch though to be safe.
