Spring delights with freshness and is not afraid of colours. So let’s bring it home with flowers and twigs covered with fluffy catkins. Decorations at home can be created on occasion and special events.
Bring spring home
Calendar spring can be cold, and we don’t always have time to admire its charms in the garden. However, you do not have to bother too much for it to reign in our home or office. So let’s invite her to us by creating onion flowers (cut and grown in pots), colourful perennials and accessories found in the garden. The type of decoration we make depends not only on occasion but also on the style of our apartment and the dominant colours.
Decoration in a teddy bear
One of our most essential rooms in the house is the kitchen. It is often here that we spend the most pleasant time with family and friends. The kitchen decoration can be successfully placed in a comprehensive, stable bowl that will not tip over when we prepare meals near us. This composition is straightforward, and only three species of cut flowers were used to create it, arranged against the bowl’s walls. Not only do flowers attract attention, but also their fresh green, crossing stems.
Tiered decoration with sapphires
Spring is so flowery in this house that it doesn’t matter what’s outside the window! The decoration on this window sill resembles a perennial bed. Its layout is multi-storey – there are tall narcissi at the back, and the middle is occupied by lower clumps – crocuses and sapphires planted in light, white baskets. Between them, single accents are colourful specimens of fragrant hyacinths and tulips. Narcissus placed on the sides refer to the highest tuft near the window.
Pots resembling a cracking earth’s crust are a perfect match for spring bulbs bursting with freshness. Three pots of different sizes and shapes were filled with delicate crocuses and fragrant hyacinths. The choice of colours was made in moderation – the white and purple flowers emphasize the appearance of heavy, dark spots.
The preparation for Christmas is usually very intense, so when we do not have time to create decorations for the Easter table, all we need to do is reach for large glass jars and put spring flowers removed from pots, such as blue pansies, for a few days. Early spring is available for sale, and graceful Greek anemones with blue petals and a yellow centre.
Don’t you have plant covers at home? No worries! To invite spring flowers home, you can create pots for them out of spools and skeins of coloured wool. Remember that there must be a tiny container or a plastic bag under the plants so that the casing does not leak during watering. Flowers placed on a wooden tray can be moved from place to place and enjoyed for several weeks.
Decoration with chilli peppers
Combining flowers and vegetables is becoming more common. Here, the delicacy of white hyacinths is emphasized by red chilli peppers. Referring to the white of the flowers, there is a bunch of white asparagus next to it. Such decoration will be effective for a short time because the hyacinths in the warm interior of the apartment will fade quickly, and the peel of the vegetables will start to dry out. But if we are expecting guests, it is worth placing such an original bouquet on the kitchen counter on the eve of their visit.
The traditional bouquet of roses and chrysanthemums at Easter is decorated with dark red stems with quail eggshells. Speckled shells look elegant and will match the classic interior design of the apartment, and at the same time, add lightness to the compact floral composition.
Classic furniture and casings decorated with patterns are best filled with a cluster of single-coloured flowers. White goes well with any pot and will be perfect for any interior.
In a recycled container
Jute bags have been used more and more often as pot covers for several seasons. To use them to grow plants, you need to put them inside a clay or plastic pot or a pot in a metal casing so that water does not seep through the bag after watering the plants – otherwise, ugly stains will appear on its surface. Such a decoration is perfect for a modern room or arranged in a rustic style.
Decoration for the festive table
There is usually not much room for decorations on the festive table. If we still want to decorate the table, let’s plant individual plants in small, easy to move glass vessels. In these three cups, mini-compositions were created with flakes by sticking twigs of plants into the ground, the buds of which had not yet begun to develop.
This flat, wide bowl has a thick branch that provides the perfect frame for two colourful, delicate primroses. To cover the pots in which the plants grow, the entire free space was filled with flexible shoots of Virginia Creeper.
Hidden in caskets
Glass measuring cups with pairs of pale blue squares will look great in a modern or industrial interior. In this decoration, the emphasis was placed not only on the flowers and their delicate beauty but above all on the shape of the onions stained with earth. Each measuring cup also has shoots of deciduous shrubs, the buds of which have already begun to develop; they add drama to the composition and emphasize the vertical shape of the glass vessels.
Nest with tulips
The pot with red tulips for Easter is decorated with a braid of twisted shoots reinforced with a thin floral wire. Inside there are blanks of quail eggs on a green, soft moss lining. It would be best to choose dwarf varieties of tulips that will not grow above the twigs for such decoration.
Forest undergrowth in glass
Violets planted side by side in a simple glass bowl are to resemble a forest undergrowth, which can usually be admired in deciduous forests in early spring. The microscale landscape reviving in the warmth of the spring sun will be enriched after a few days by green leaves, which will develop from pieces of shoots stuck between the violets.
Classic base in a new form
An Easter decoration was created from a feeder growing in a flat bowl on a green bed, using classic willow bases and blown eggs. Speckled quail eggs along the edge of the bowl match the colour of the willow shoots. The twigs with the catkins are placed loosely on a green carpet to make the composition seem light and natural.
