The weather is cooling down, the leaves are changing, and Thanksgiving is just around the corner. For many people, this is the time to begin planning that wonderful meal and it is also the time to think of how you can decorate your home to reflect the splendor of the changing seasons.
When you allow yourself to become inspired by nature, there is no end to the liveliness you can add to your home with natural aspects. Just think, how rich and lovely are fall flowers?
By adding fresh cut flowers or other seasonal plants indoors, it cozies up your home in just a few minutes. Let that inner decorator go wild with the following flower decorating tips.
Even though the weather is getting cooler, your garden may still be full of fresh flowers that make great fall bouquets. So you can look around your own yard, or consult with a professional florist. When cutting your flowers, you want to be sure to use sharp scissors and cut the stems on an angle.
If there are any leaves that would be beneath the water line in the vase, remove them. Once they are in the vase, remember to change the water every two days so that bacteria does not build up.
Where in the room you decide to place your flowers also has a lot to do with the impact they will bring. In other words, create focal points with the flowers by placing them in parts of the room that you would like to bring attention to.
Placing them on a table near your front door is a way of welcoming guests as they arrive. It is extremely inviting to see fresh beautiful flowers on the middle of the Thanksgiving table, as well.
The next time you are out for a walk, you can collect fallen tree branches. These can be used as highlights among the fresh flowers. This helps to add a modern touch while adding some height to the arrangement. Branches inside a vase with fall pumpkin gourds is another way to make any room in your home fall-ready.
You can also opt for potted flowers. Imagine if you had pots of chrysanthemums all in line on a buffet style table in your hallway or in the entryway? Any type of plant during the cooler months brings warmth to any home. This is also the perfect time to start a small garden indoors that you can plant come spring.
You can begin plants like beans, tomatoes, or even peppers, which showcase beautiful white flowers, indoors and transplant them in the spring. The more you group your arrangements, the better the visual impact.
Regardless of whether you purchase your arrangements or create them yourself, always keep them out of direct sunlight, as this can harm the precious petals. Keep the plants as cool as possible without letting them get cold. This will keep your fall bouquets looking fresh as long as possible. You can keep fresh flowers in your home no matter what the season or occasion.
