After a cold and dreary winter, nothing encourages a smile quite like blooming spring flowers do. As the weather warms up and people come out of their hibernation, flowers are also coming out of the ground and saying hello to the sunshine. This spring, make use of these beautiful pieces of nature to give a vibrant and fresh feel to your life.
Flowers are so versatile and they can be used in so many ways, from decorations to gifts to beauty accessories! Let out your inner DIY-er and see how creative you can get with spring flowers. Here are some ideas to get you started.
Host a Party with a Floral Theme
Who doesn’t love an outdoor spring picnic or a summer pool party? Host a get-together with all of your friends and easily make it the most beautiful party of the year with these floral ideas.
Make small and delicate napkin rings from fresh flowers to give each place setting a pretty touch. This project is super simply and you can be so creative in how you arrange the flowers. Nobody will want to use their napkins because of how beautiful they look!
For your first pool party of the year, make a floating flower wreath. This will float along the top of the pool giving your party a unique touch. People can use it as a life-size frame to take pictures with, which is a really big hit at parties right now! You can make these as big or as little as you want and they can take any shape. Make a bunch of them to fill the pool with natural decorations.
For centerpieces at your tables, there are so many things you can do with flowers. Find old bird cages at an antique shop and put a pot of flowers inside so that the flowers end up popping out of the bird cage. For a subtle look, arrange flowers in a small teacup in the center of each table for a small but beautiful touch.
Hand-Craft Floral Gifts
If you aren’t hosting a party, but are attending one this spring, these ideas are perfect gifts for the hostess or the honoree of the party!
For the book lover in your life, a flower pressed bookmark is a useful and gorgeous gift. You can press the flowers in whatever arrangement you like and create a work of art that the receiver will love.
Try framing a picture of you and the guest of honor in a wooden picture frame that you’ve decorated with flowers and twigs from the garden. This will be a rustic and nature inspired gift that will add personality to an otherwise common picture frame.
