It can be so fun to create farm fresh decorating with spring flowers.This is a wonderful time of year to bring the outdoors inside through the use of all the seasonal blossoms.
Don’t be shy to gather fresh cut flowers from your garden or purchase small potted plants such as primroses, daffodils, and pansies for much needed color and welcoming cheer.
When my lilacs are in full bloom and I love to bring them into the farmhouse and fill interesting containers with their amazing fragrance. During hydrangea season I bring those in to fill my home with those gorgeous full blooms. The sky’s the limit when it comes to the ways you can decorate with flowers.
Farm Fresh Decorating With Spring Flowers
To create fresh spring bouquets, play around with a mixture of colors, sizes and varieties of flowers. Scour your home for old and new items that can be used for holding flower arrangements. Here are some items that work really well.
- Canning jars
- Vintage coffee pots
- Galvanized pots and pails
- Antique teakettles and teapots
- China teacups
- Old bottles for single blooms
- Old soda crates
- Wooden tool boxes
When choosing some vessels for your flowers, look for things that maybe you wouldn’t think of, go outside the box and see what you can find. Be sure to save any old things that are chipped up as they make a perfect vase or holder for flowers. When you want to create the farmhouse style it’s all about mixing the textures and the element of the unexpected. Especially old vintage items lend themselves to this style.
If you don’t have flowers, consider bringing in some fresh green plants for spring. You can make a quick terrarium centerpiece using a vintage plate. On the plate arrange moss, river rocks, and small potted succulents, and if desired, cover with a large glass dome. This is a simple spring centerpiece that will last for many seasons.
Do you like to do decorating with spring flowers? It’s so simple,fun, and brings cheer to everyone in the home. I would love to know what you like to use to hold your seasonal blooms.
