Spring Flowers from Tacoma Boys
Bouquets of spring flowers bring a pop of color, beauty, and fragrance to any space. Whether you enjoy gardening your own flowers or prefer cut flowers and arrangements, Tacoma Boys has what you need! Spring flowers like tulips, primroses, roses, lilies, and daffodils are common to use as decoration. And while flowering plants are alive, you can still appreciate the changing of blooms that are already cut and in vases. Many bouquets and arrangements are sure to include budding flowers as well as blooms. Even though they’ve been cut, there will still be more blooms to enjoy down the road! And, you can even preserve and dry flowers to keep them lasting even longer (read on for some more tips on how to dry flowers).
How to Stylize Spring Flowers
Depending on the type of cut flowers you have, there are various ways to decorate with and style flowers. Decorate with flowers of the same length by arranging a variety of different colored flowers with accents like green leaves and wispy baby’s breath. While flowers with longer stems like roses and tulips work well in traditional vases, short bouquets are better off in decorative pots or fishbowl vases. Primroses, for example, are shorter flowers that do well on display in the pots in which they are growing.
When it comes to decorating with flowers, spring gardening is a great place to start for many. If you’re looking to decorate with living, blooming plants, stop by Tacoma Boys for a concrete or ceramic pot! You’ll find a wide selection of different colors and designs to choose from in addition to gardening supplies like potting soil and of course blooming plants and cut flowers.

And much more! At Tacoma Boys and throughout the Pacific Northwest, flowers like these make spring gardening beautiful and diverse. You can either choose to grow flowers from seeds, starts, or propagated plants. While it may be a bit late in the season to plant spring flowers from seed, you can always plan to sow them for next year.
DIY Decorations with Flowers
When it comes to DIY decorations in the spring, accentuating your home with flowers can go a long way. Change out the cut flower bouquets with different blooms as they come and go into season. To include the kids with DIY decorations, send them out to pick blooms (like flowers from rhododendrons, which are prolific here) from bushy odds and ends and wildflowers in the yard. Throw the flowers in a fishbowl vase and leave it on the bathroom counter for a cute little floral accent to the room.
And as lovely as it is to decorate with fresh blooms throughout the seasons, dried flowers can last even longer! There are so many ways to DIY your own dried flowers as decoration or even to use in aromatherapy. To get started with drying flowers, check out this guide here: Flowers can be air dried and more robust blooms like roses are preferred. You can shape flowers and leaves and arrange them in your preferred way when they are fresh, to enjoy as dried for weeks and months. It’s even as easy as hanging a bouquet of cut flowers upside down and leaving them in a cool, dark place to dry. You can use a variety of dried flowers in DIY decorations like:
- Flower wreaths
- Easter centerpiece for your dinner table with pastel pinks, blues, and yellows
- Dried bouquets standing in vases or hanging from hooks
- Mixed media art with paint and resin
Another traditional way to DIY your own flower decorations is to press a flower petal or leaf into the pages of a book. Let the book press its weight on the petal until it dries out after a few days. These mementos can last several years! While some people don’t like buying fresh flowers because they can die and rot within weeks, this helps them last much longer and get more bang for your buck. And it’s even more enjoyable to appreciate these beautiful flowers for years to come.Swing on by Tacoma Boys to take a look at all the flower arrangements, flowering plants, ceramic pots, and more to get started!
