Day One: Create a Centerpiece
Bring color and light indoor with an easy centerpiece. Grab a fun container you can find from around your house, and, when you make a quick run for supplies, grab a variety of small plants from Home Depot or Lowe’s. (You can also order from Amazon.) Start mixing, stuffing and shoving to create an easy accent décor piece. Indoor plants definitely contribute to air quality.
