11 Unique Ideas for Decorating with Flowers

May 14, 2014


Spring is here, finally right?!  After that horrific winter, we welcomed this new season with open arms.  Whether spring is drawn out or we jump right into Summer, it's nice to break out of hibernation to smell the fresh air of the warmer season to come. The first thought that comes to mind for me when I think of Spring is, flowers.  As the perennials are starting to peak their way through - it's always interesting to see what will come up each year - I've started to think of how I can create simple, but unexpected flower displays and vignettes throughout the garden (and indoors … [Read more...]

DIY: Vertical Pallet Garden by @Jenna_Burger, SASinteriors.net

The warmer weather has got me movin' and groovin' outdoors.  This past weekend I got my DIY mojo on for this months Lowe's challenge and created (what I think) is something pretty cool.  Check out my newly created Vertical Pallet Garden using colorful pots... Though the flowers are finally starting to peak through around the yard, I was in need of color NOW to start decorating my front porch for Spring.  I, of course, hit up my local Lowe's garden center to get my color fix.  It's still the early days of Spring, so the selection (at my local Lowe's in NY) was limited, but I was able to … [Read more...]

Spring Mantel with Sensational Succulents - Creative ideas for bringing in natural elements by @Jenna_Burger, SASinteriors.net

Happy Monday!  Yes, it's Spring, but sadly it doesn't feel like it (at least here in NY). I am so ready for the warmer days ahead and am yearning for the array of colorful flowers, the endless chirping of birds, and the sounds of outdoor laughter.  I know it'll be here soon, but I am just ready for winter (and the endless snow) to be over. In my search for all things Spring, I decided this years seasonal mantel had to include elements of the outdoors. Last Friday when perusing the aisles of Lowe's, specifically the outdoor section, I saw a huge display of succulents.  I immediately knew … [Read more...]

Spring Wreath Inspiration

April 4, 2011


Before we get started, let's all agree that wreaths are usually a feature saved for one special time of year ( I hear the sleigh bells ringing)...right??  WRONG!  A wreath is known as the symbolic meaning for "Circle of Life" and how perfect is this coincidence since Spring is the season of Rebirth.  After all, it has been a long cold winter, so let's warm up our homes with this special decor icon. Even though Spring is making a late entrance (at least in NY), I'm ready to create a new Spring wreath for my front door.  I didn't have to go far to find some great inspiration.  With a little … [Read more...]

Artificial Flowers_2

Even though it's technically Spring, it's difficult to believe, with all the snow still on the ground here in NY.  Thankfully my mindset is already on pretty Spring flowers to get me through the final days of the long drawn-out Winter.  I'm continually changing and updating my Dining Room display depending on the season and holiday.  I love the look of fresh flowers (who doesn't?), but sometimes an artificial arrangement is simpler and more practical to maintain. When shopping for your arrangement, look for flowers that have a natural, "real" appearance and that hang similar to a real … [Read more...]
