Whether inside the home or outside on the patio or balcony, summer is the perfect season to show off the beauty of nature by decorating with flowers. We’ve put together some summer decorating idea that use flowers.
Here are some great ways to use flowers around the home:
- Use a tall vase and combine fresh fruit like apples or orange with flowers. You can do this by putting the fruit in the tall vase and then inserting a smaller vase within it that holds the water and flowers to create a unique look.
- For al fresco dinner parties, create small bouquets wrapped with a cloth napkin or use little tin pails full of flowers at each place setting. Roses, dahlias, daisies, and hydrangea are nice choices for these arrangements.
- Hang dried flowers in pitchers or containers from a wall or door to create an eye-catching decoration in a kitchen, nook, or dining area.
- Put a flower arrangement on display by placing it under glass on a platform to create a formal look to the décor. You can also use lanterns to display flowers and wrap them in summer-themed ribbons like red check to reflect a picnic.
- Place fresh cut flowers and fruit or greenery on a tiered stand to add color to a room, including using this as a centerpiece for a dining table or foyer table. This also can add a nice fragrance to a room.
- Take berry branches or dried flowers and weave them into wreaths that can be placed on hooks or doorknobs. These mini wreathes can also be placed around candleholders for a beautiful touch on a patio table.
- Take bunches of fresh flowers and place them in different types of containers for window sills, sideboards, dressers and tables in coordinating colors with a room or in a complementary color.
- Float flowers in a bowl to create a unique party centerpiece.
- Use interesting containers like wine bottles, bud vases, ceramic pitchers or anything else that offers a different look to display flowers. These can be already in your home or be found at yard sales and flea markets.
- Use hanging baskets of flowers around a deck and patio to add interest and depth of perspective to your exterior décor.
