Spring and Easter Decorating Ideas
Spring is just around the corner; brighten your home for Easter with these fun and easy floral design and decorating ideas.
A boxwood wreath creates the perfect base for a fresh front door floral wreath that will be long lasting and lovely for months. Just the addition of a cheerful colored ribbon can warming but for an added pop; water tube cymbidium orchid blooms and nestle the tubes into the wreath. If you are worried about the tubes coming loose with movement from the door, a dab of hot glue around the base of the tubes is the perfect solution. This will create a delightful floral greeting for yourself and guests.
Pastels are a popular color palette for this time of year; for a trendy take on this move to the brighter more saturated hues of these colors. Vibrant oranges and reds, mixed with deep violets and blues will bring a festive feeling. Grouping single verities of flowers such as peonies, hydrangeas, and ranunculus in neutral white containers brings an up to date contemporary look to Easter. If you are looking for a more natural organic floral design, try blooming branches and tufts of moss with succulents placed at the base of the container, add and egg or nest and you will have a woodland inspired Easter theme.
The table is a place to gather the family; get the kids involved with this easy centerpiece. A flat of wheat grass from the grocer will provide a lush base for this floral design. Using scissors carefully cut the wheatgrass into pieces that will fit nicely into clear glass containers. Vases can be low cubes, votive holders or any other style of low vessel that is hiding in a kitchen cupboard. Have the kids place the grass into the vases. Then have them add spring flowers low so the blooms just rest atop the blades of grass. Tulips, daffodils, and gerbera daisies would be perfect blooms for this design; of course you can add any of your favorite flowers too! If you would like the flowers to have a water source place them in water tubes. Single blooms in their own containers are also a wonderful addition to this design. Scatter other Easter treasures like nests, critters, eggs, or even jelly beans among the floral arrangements for a whimsical and fun centerpiece that the whole family can enjoy.
With just a few touches and a bit of creativity you will banish the winter blues and have spring time happiness bursting form your home.
