I really love decorating with spring flowers…
Yesterday, was the first day that it felt like this long winter may actually come to an end. The sun was shining, and my dreary mood was immediately lifted. It has been the strangest winter, not necessarily cold, but very wet and hazy. Like Forks, without Edward, I guess (still a little Twilight obsessed here). I opened up all of our blinds and let the sun shine in. It felt like spring, even though it’s still technically winter, and not warm in the least. The sunshine was nice, but I felt like we needed just a little something more. Fresh flowers…and a little green, please. So, Kate and I headed to Trader Joe’s to see if we could spring it up a bit in here. TJ’s did not dissapoint, as usual. They had loads of fresh spring flowers in all shades of springy goodness. My favorite flowers are tulips, so I immediately gravitated towards them. I bought two bouquets in red, and placed them in a white canister that lost its lid long ago. Don’t they look dreamy?
Kate loved the daffodils, so we bought two bunches of them for less than $2 and placed them in a mason jar in my craft nook.
These white tulips were just too pure to pass up…
I removed my ivy topiary (the other one didn’t make it) from the sap bucket it was in before, and moved it to a white urn.
Doesn’t the green just pop out of the white urn?
I am so in love with the green…it just makes the room feel alive.
Can you tell that I have a slight lemon button fern obsession? I buy every one I see…I just love them! Strangely, I can’t find them many places, and as much as I don’t love Walmart, they usually have the small ones. Anyhoooo…I’ve had this one for a few years, and it is still in it’s original container, wrapped with burlap, nestled in a white ironstone pedestal.
And of course…for this Kentucky girl, a little lemon button fern I picked up over the weekend, planted in a mint julep cup…just perfect for the Kentucky Derby!
Do you decorate with spring flowers? Real or fake? No judgement here…
