I suggest finding an old worn out chair, even a rocking chair at a yard sale or thrift store, spot spray it white and spot sand it to create an olden look. Then take a jigsaw and cut a hole in the middle of the seat part just big enough for a flower pot to fit without going through and plant either a real or fake poinsettia in it.
Christmas Backdrop!! YES!!! Simple and effective... And CHEAP!!! De-leafed trees, spray painted white, "plant' the trees in simple white planters, add white lights on white cord and VOILA!!! This would be beautiful on the front porch!! And what a dramatic effect!!
