Nothing says spring like a fresh bunch of brightly colored blooms. With the winter long gone, spring is here, and it’s the perfect time to liven your interiors up with some fresh flowers. Below, the florists at Forget Me Not Flower Shop in North Haven, CT, provide some creative ideas for using the colors of spring.
How to Add Cheer to Your Home With Spring Flowers
Originating in the Mediterranean, these beautiful flowers symbolize passion and romance and come in a variety of colors. You can choose from green, dark red, champagne, salmon, and hybrid colors. As the longest lasting cut flower, they will give your home vibrant color for up to two weeks if you cut the stems every three days. Instead of leaving the stems long, try cutting them down to fill a smaller vase and use it as a centerpiece on the coffee or end tables in your home.
Pansies work well by themselves, but they really shine when paired with other varieties of plants, such as ornamental grasses, Alyssum, and Dianthus. Plant them in a hanging pot near the door and invite guests to follow the colors of spring right into your home.
Yellow tulips represent “cheerful thoughts,” and they’re the perfect way to brighten your mood. Tulips shine their best as a standalone flower. Try gathering an oversized bunch and placing them in a vase in the center of the kitchen table. You could also place a single tulip in a slender vase to add some cheer to your nightstand. Another creative idea is to cut the stems short enough to plant in teacups and place them throughout your home on windowsills, hallway tables, and vanities.
