Use these summer garden flower arrangement ideas to bring color and life to your indoor spaces. So easy anyone can do this!
One of my very favorite things about summer is being able to walk outside and harvest fresh flowers. I have peonies in the spring, and hydrangeas in the summer. Along with the hydrangeas, there are coneflowers and lavender. When these flowers are cut and combined together, they instantly bring summer charm and color to our spaces.
In addition to the garden flowers, I like to incorporate herbs. Most of the time, my herbs grow faster than I can use them in the kitchen, so cutting them for a summer garden flower arrangement keeps the plants healthy and under control.
I’ve spoken many times about all my gardening trials and errors. Over the years, I’ve had so many things die that I have literally lost track. This hasn’t stopped me from keeping at it and with each new season, I’m always anxious to see what blooms and what doesn’t.
My patch of lavender isn’t large, but it yields a nice basket of blooms each year. Most years it stands straight and tall…but this year the blooms fell over and it was almost lying on the ground. As soon as the blooms were open, I cut it and had the best day putting the stems into little bunches.
I shared some with my yoga class, put some beside my bed, and left some in a basket on my dining room table. I do wish I had more, but I’m grateful for these blooms and don’t take them for granted!

A few more gardening thoughts:
- Don’t be afraid to combine herbs and flowers in your arrangements. Many times, they are the perfect pair.
- If you hesitate to cut your flowers because you love to look at the blooms in your garden, plant multiples of anything that would make a good cutting flower. That way you can cut some to bring inside, and leave the rest in the garden to be enjoyed.
- Don’t give up…even if your garden, like mine, always seems to be a work in progress. Each summer, I look past the bare spots and plan for the next year.
As always, thank you for stopping by…
