There’s something about having delicate white flowers growing indoors at Christmastime that is magical! Paperwhites are a bulb flower that are related to the common daffodil. They produce small white flowers that are extremely fragrant. And, forcing these bulb flowers to bloom at Christmastime couldn’t be easier!
A few years ago I shared my tips for forcing paperwhite bulbs indoors so you’ll have blooms at Christmastime. And, since Christmas is just seven weeks away, I thought I’d remind you today to get your supplies ready! That’s why I’m re-sharing my tips for forcing paperwhites for Christmas as part of today’s Home and Decor Encore!
Welcome to Home and Decor Encore

I have a question about paper whites. Is there variety that is less pungent? I think they are so beautiful but my husband can’t stand the smell!
Hi, Renee. I included two varieties in the post that the smell isn’t as strong.
