Fall Decorating with Fresh Flowers

by Rekha on October 1, 2015

As the seasons change I love to bring the outdoors in with fresh flowers. Especially as fall begins and the days get shorter, a small detail like fresh flowers can transform a room from drab to fab in a few seconds. It’s my go-to decorating tool!

Fresh flowers bring new life and energy to any space. They add warmth, charm and allow you to celebrate the season’s colors.

You can’t go wrong with decorating with fresh flowers – here are a few ideas for inspiration.

1. Place brightly colored flowers in a plain white vase for maximum color statement or create an interesting color story by selecting vases that contrast with your flowers. Can you picture this multi-color arrangement on a dining table or hallway table? How inviting!

2. Create a delicate but striking still life with a floral arrangement in a tall cylinder glass vase. The monochromatic color palette creates a unified look while making a signature statement.

3. Selecting the right vase or container is equally important as choosing the right flowers! Metallic vases are modern and trendy. Painted pitchers are charming. OR add your personal touch: use glass paint in rich jewel tone colors and transform old jars, bottles and candle holders into a beautiful flower vase.
