It’s springtime! Everything seems to be stirring to life after a long winter season. Finally, a reprieve from the winter blues after the holidays have been boxed up for the year.
You can pull out a few white or cream colored poinsettias from your Christmas decorations to set off yellow daisies and pink roses. Now is the time to think about springtime flower arrangements to give your home a fresh, bright feel.
Simplicity is in style this season, so it’s easy for you to create classic flower arrangements of your own using fresh cut flowers from your garden or from a local florist. Go with monochromatic color combinations – poppies and tulips are a lively, bright duo that lend cheeriness to any room.
By coupling colorful arrangements with simple, modern vases or bowls, you can mix and match an accent that will work well in any room of your home.
For an endearing, homey look, use a colorful jar or oversized coffee cup as a vase alternative. Choose flowers for an eclectic, textured mix for a Mother’s Day gift. This kind of arrangement would work well on an end table or anywhere you need a smaller display in your home.
You can spray paint old-fashioned Mason or canning jars in bright yellow or coral to show off your arrangement, too.
Votive candle holders
Need an easy way to spruce up your shelves after the Christmas decorations are down? Try a few single roses and votive candle holders. Simply invest in a few grocery store roses and snip off the stems. Floating in a small votive candle holder, they’ll last surprisingly long and add a lovely, fragrant touch to your living space.
Creating flower arrangements isn’t rocket science, but keeping fresh touches in your home keeps your decor classic and updated. Take a stab at your own creative ideas with flowers. It’s fun and worth the effort!
