There is no Spring without spring flowers. The most obvious way to bring the renewing nature indoors is to bring in flowers and branches. Of all the flowers my most favorite ones are spring flowers. Tulips, daffodils, snowdrops, forget-me-nots, violets to name a few.
I know I already did several roundup posts recently about spring decor (here, here and the one from last year here, ), but while doing my research I found these beautiful pictures of flowers and floral arrangements that I wanted to share with you. Check them out and let them lift your spirit.
Special note for you: As always you find all sources under the images. Each and every link in this post (not only the captions), leads to an amazing gallery of the interior, and a meaty, information-loaded post where you can find out more about what grabbed your attention and see more details and images. Do jump over!
If you have shrubs in your backyard like forsythias, lilacs, flowering quinces, fothergillas, azaleas, pussy willows, jessamines, or any spring blooming bushes, the most simple thing you can do to grab and hold onto the coming Spring is cutting branches from them and take indoors. See?
Spring bulbs are another easy way to invite new life into your home. Create compositions with different spring bulb flowers, or go for just one type of bulbs of three or five. You can define the time of blooming by planting them 4-6 weeks before you want to see them. This way you can bring spring indoors sooner just to make the end of winter a little easier on you.
Early Spring Flower Arrangements
Daffodils, hyacinths, tulips, actually any spring flowers with stems can be a part of centerpieces, vignettes with cut flowers. Short stems, long stems, all can be beautiful if arranged creatively.
Daffodils are the perfect springtime staples that symbolize rebirth and new beginnings. They are beautiful and affordable. Planted in larger patches make any curb and backyard beautiful.
Hyacinths represent playfulness and sport. They come in an array of colors. The purple version means “please forgive me,” which originates from the Greek myth of Apollo and Hyakinthos. (Hyakinthos was accidentally killed by a discus, and the flower that grew from his blood was named hyacinth in his honor.) They have a strong and distinct fragrant.
Tulips: the Ultimate Spring Flowers
My all-time and absolute favorite. Though I have a number of favorite flowers.
Tulips represent the perfect love. They are considered a declaration of love and faithfulness to your partner. They come in shy pastel colors as well as in bright and deep colors. Tulips are also known in many different shapes, sizes, and textures.
Spring Flower Arrangements
Mixing spring flowers makes beautiful floral arrangements. Play around as you please with them! The result will be absolutely gorgeous as you can see below. Use vases, pitchers, even antique dough bowls, baskets – anything you have on hand. Get creative!
Having plants indoors is a must for a peaceful, life-celebrating, and healthy home. Spring is a great time to bring in new plants and expand your greenery collection.
I hope these flowers have brought you as much joy and calm to you as they did to me!
Have a really nice week!
