I long to see signs of spring. To look through my windows and see the hosta popping up through the soil. To see buds on the forsythia bushes. To walk by my clematis and see the brown vines beginning to turn green. Since it’s a bit too early for any of that, we can bring those signs of spring into our homes by adding spring greenery & flowers to our decor.

There are lots of ways to do it…but I have a few favorites. That’s what I’m sharing today. First let’s talk about what holds the greenery and flowers.

  • Urns & Tureens
  • Pitchers
  • Bowls
  • Jars
  • Lanterns

Urns and tureens are easy to use as vessels for your greenery and flowers. It can be as simple as putting a preserved greenery ball into a vintage silver urn. The same can be done with tureens. A large opening is the perfect place to set any sort of ball. I also love to use pitchers. I think a simple ironstone pitcher has so much charm and even makes tree branches look elegant.

Bowls are also a good choice for adding any sort of greenery. A large bowl is my favorite way to start when I do a centerpiece for my dining table. I just made a new bunny nest with boxwood garland, forsythia and some little blue eggs. I’ve made bunny nests before but I think this one is my favorite!

If I had to pick an all-time favorite vessel for greenery and flowers, it would be a vintage, blue mason jar…or several of them grouped together. It’s the simplest way to make a flower arrangement.

There’s actually no “arranging.” Just cut your flowers so they are the same length and place them in a jar filled with water. Takes about 2 seconds and packs a powerful design punch.

You all know how much I love lanterns…and I don’t use them just for candles. Putting greenery in lanterns is a great way to add interest and a pop of the unexpected. I used a preserved boxwood ball in one lantern and faux ferns in the other.

One final tip for adding spring greenery & flowers to your decor: use wreaths in unexpected places. You can see boxwood wreaths sprinkled about in the pictures above. One hanging on my blanket ladder, one on the bookshelf and a large one on my dining room mirror. I’ve even been known to hang them from my lamps!
