How To Arrange Flowers For Perfect Spring Home Decor
Spring has finally sprung. Our blog has been counting down our favourite home decor trends for the new season already, and while the weather hasn't gotten the memo, we have a spring in our step! It wouldn't be April in the UK without the chilly weather and drizzle, but that doesn't mean it should put a dampener on your decorating ideas. Bringing the outdoors to your interiors is the main inspiration for the new season, from down to earth paint shades to lovely landscape artwork.
Incorporating springtime florals is a staple of the season, and spring flower arrangements are all the rage for 2022. A fabulous way to elevate any space, flower decoration at home breathes new life into tired rooms. It might seem tricky, but in this week's blog, we're giving you all the tips you need to create beautiful floral arrangements. From the types of flowers you should use to where a glass vase looks best, we'll make sure your home looks beautiful.
Subtle Yet Striking Flower Decoration Ideas
If you're at a loss for how to decorate a room with flowers - stick with the old phrase "less is more". After all, who says you need a big bouquet to make a statement? A simple yet effective way to incorporate DIY floral arrangements is by going with a minimalist look. Sticking with a subdued colour palette adds effortless elegance to your coffee table, no matter the bloom.
We love long-stemmed white flowers in a tall vase, as they create a chic look that's wonderful for spring. Try white roses or lilies on their own as a contemporary way to decorate your living room. If you want something that looks a little fuller, why not add some eucalyptus leaves for a contemporary presentation?
Floral designers adore artificial eucalyptus leaves for everything from dining table centrepieces to garlands and are irresistibly modern. If you prefer smaller flowers, cluster white hydrangeas for an easy floral arrangement idea that looks wonderfully high end.
Glass vases are fantastic for showing off greenery, however, a chic ceramic vase in a neutral colour is a must-have for an on-trend look. The Sketched Female Ceramic Vase is a centrepiece on its own, and pairs perfectly with low-key florals.
Step Into A New Season With Spring Arrangements
One of the best things about spring is enjoying all of the fresh blossoms coming to life after a long cold winter. Although, if you don't naturally have a green thumb, spring-blooming can be a bit of a pain. Not all of us love to potter around in the garden, which is why decorating your home with stunning real flowers can be a fabulous alternative to the traditional allotment.
Daffodils - the quintessential flower for springtime! Cheap and cheerful, these unmissable yellow blossoms are the perfect way to liven up your home in time for the sunnier weather. If you're unsure how to arrange flowers in a vase, they're also a beginner's dream.
All it takes is a few snips on the stem at a slight angle and a bullet vase. This Linework Face Vase uses an on-trend abstract design for an excellent decor piece with plenty of artistic flair! We also recommend twisting a rubber band around the stem to secure the bunches together. Whether you need a finishing touch for your dining room or a splash of welcoming colour to your hallway, small gatherings of daffodils add sunshine wherever they are.
You can even create a beautiful bouquet, by combining tulips and lilac. Versatile and stunning, this combination is a fantastic way to decorate your home in time for Easter.
Make Them Last, With Artificial Flowers
We know that fresh flowers are one of the best things about this time of year, but what if you want to make your decor last? There are plenty, more permanent, ways to bring the illusion of plant life to your rooms. Artificial flowers for home decoration is a controversial topic, but there are heaps of ways to revive this tired trend.
How to arrange an artificial flowers bouquet can be tricky, however, sticking with greenery is always a must. Keep things simple, as it's easy to spot artificial flowers in a vase when the bunches are a little more weighty. But traditional blooms have fallen to the wayside in recent years for some more modern options.
Pampas grass in a vase brings a sense of natural warmth to any corner of your home and is available in a wide range of colours. Whether you stick to a sandy neutral or bright jewel tones, you're sure to find an option that suits you. If you love the boho look, pair natural pampas grass with a minimalist vase like the Silhouette Face Ceramic Vase.
You can even enjoy the best of both worlds. Dried flowers as home decor have become incredibly popular, and it's not hard to see why. With these, you can keep the look and smell of fresh flowers with a unique twist that can stick around for as long as you like. These pair perfectly with pampas grass, creating evergreen bunches that can withstand even the worst of the UK weather.
Finish The Look, With A Glam Wide Silver Vase
When decorating with flowers, you always run the risk of the finished product looking a little old fashioned. There's nothing wrong with the classics, but if your home decor calls for something more glamorous, there's nothing better than a chrome silver or gold vase.
The Corbridge Streaked Large Aluminium Vase is fantastic for modernising your blossoms and has plenty of room. When you have a larger vase to work with, you can get a little more creative with your arrangements, and organise your flowers in a gorgeous colour gradient.
Want something a bit more stand-out? Many interior enthusiasts are switching from usual vases to ginger jars. These are a decor staple in and of themselves, and the Giselle 21" Jar is a bold and unmissable centrepiece. For a more subdued look, the Cantelupe Blue Glass Vase is a sophisticated option ideal for darker colour schemes.
