The sun is out! What a great reminder that Spring really is coming. Sometime soon. Hopefully!
With this cold weather we’ve had in the panhandle lately, several customers have been asking for Spring floral arrangements to brighten up their homes. If it’s going to be gloomy outside, at least your home can have some color and warmth!
For our Friday Five this week, we are sharing some of the arrangements and wreaths for inspiration, as well as tips for how to use floral in your home.
Kari is working at her floral desk, so let us know if you need any custom arrangements or wreaths! To help get us all in the Spring mood, get $20 off of a custom arrangement or wreath if you LIKE, COMMENT, and SHARE this blog post on Facebook! (Offer valid on $100+ custom floral orders March 10-14)
1. Add the unmistakable colors of Spring
Nothing screams Spring quite like the vibrancy of the yellow, pink, and lavender flowers that start blooming this time of year. This wreath welcomes Spring with a pop of the season’s signature colors. Kari’s tip – go bold and be brave with a seasonal wreath. Try colors you wouldn’t normally use. It will make your house feel different, without being a permanent change.
2. Create an arrangement to coordinate with your colors
By selecting stems that coordinate with your decor, you can add color and warmth for these cold, drab months – and the arrangement will still transition into the other seasons. This arrangement, for example, combines light, lime green stems, with darker, richer florals, creating a look that transitions from Spring to Summer to Fall with no problem. The Spring-y greens set off the arrangement and add the pop of new life that defines this time of year.
3. Go green
We love this arrangement because it’s just bursting with Spring greenery! The stems add different textures and tones, while staying neutral enough that it can be used in any room. As we’ve discussed in previous blog posts, one of the big trends in home decor is tone-on-tone color schemes that bring in lots of different textures and patterns. This arrangement keeps with that trend, while bringing life into neutral spaces.
4. Add floral in unexpected places
Another huge trend in home decor – leave nothing empty. Add life to dull spots by adding little succulents, ferns, or moss balls to empty bowls, shelves, canisters, or under domes. The key to creating this look – layering. Start with a dressy tray, add a rustic bowl, and layer in your different greenery to incorporate the textures and tones that are so popular right now.
5. Combine trends
Here are two ideas on how to combine several of the trends we’ve shared the last few weeks in our Friday Five series. We used 5 items in the two pictures below to create totally different looks. We started with a neutral gray tray to anchor and define the spaces. Use the tray in a centerpiece as the base, or as the background on a shelf. Layer in different metals and bring in a pop of color with Spring florals and Easter decor. After Easter, you can take out the bunnies and still have an on-trend look for the seasons.
