Branches, Blossoms, and Blooms
Spring is finally here and we couldn’t be more ecstatic! No offense winter, but after several months of everything seeming dead and gray there is nothing better than this time of year when new life starts blooming and there are pretty colors everywhere. One of the loveliest perks of spring is how simple it is to take that beauty and showcase it indoors. If you have visited either of our store locations lately, you probably saw that we have spring branches out in full force.
Whether you clip them from your backyard, buy them from your local florist, or purchase some of our life-like faux branches, here are some of our favorite places to display blooms in the home:
IN AN ENTRY An entry is the perfect place to make a statement and a stunning arrangement creates a seamless transition from outdoors to in. Welcome your guests as you welcome spring!
IN THE KITCHEN/DINING ROOM Generally the dining table or kitchen island is the place in our home that has the largest available surface area- take advantage of it! Go big with full and dramatic arrangements. Don’t hesitate to clip substantial branches from the tree in the backyard and be generous when filling your vase. If you don’t have room for a sizeable arrangement, though, don’t fret! A few delicate blossoms thrown into a simple vase will look effortless and make just as big of an impact.
ON A MANTLE Do you ever get tired of having the same old candlesticks on your mantle? Well now’s your opportunity to mix it up! Whether you prefer oversized symmetrical arrangements, asymmetrical and eclectic combos, or small collections of blooms lining the mantle, you can’t go wrong.
Although these are some favorite places to easily display spring branches, don’t hesitate to incorporate them throughout your home. Place them in a big vase on the floor, next to the tub in the bathroom, or on a nightstand in a bedroom for that airy addition- you can’t go overboard with blossoms!
Lastly when it comes to vases, don’t limit yourself! Use the vintage glass vase that your grandmother gave you, buy a one-of-a-kind ginger jar (learn more about ginger jars from our very own Michelle Jensen HERE!), or grab that simple white pitcher from your kitchen.
