Surrounding yourself with these beautiful plants is a great way to appreciate the change in season. Look forward to even more blooms in the next few months and take the time to enjoy it all! If you’re not sure how to decorate with flowers, don’t fret. There is no right or wrong way to style flowers as long as you like the way they look. You could even add greenery like leaves even from your own yard for a different look and change of color.
Potted plants and hanging baskets are great because they are already ready to go just for you! Just be sure to keep an eye on them for regular watering and adequate sunlight. On the other hand, fresh cut stems are nice because they’ll last a good week or so simply sitting in a vase filled with water. Make your own arrangements with different varieties of single flowers. Or, choose a bouquet from Tacoma Boys that will satisfy you without an extra thought.
If you have an abundance of flowers and are looking to do something special with those blooms, try decorating with dried flowers. Dried plants including stems and other greenery are common in decorating. Petals can be pressed inside of books or stems can be hung upside down to dry.
