Well.. it’s that time. I am ready to start adding a little spring to our rooms. I go through a period of time after Christmas that I have no desire to do much in the way of home decor. We go all out for Christmas so I think I need a little break. I was recently browsing online to get some type of inspiration for spring. And, I found these gorgeous artificial flowers. So I thought I would throw together a simple arrangement and add it to the kitchen island.
I am not going to lie… I really wasn’t into it. Deb and I are still struggling with some cold symptoms from Covid. (6 weeks) I still have terrible sinus drainage and a cough. Deb has a sore throat and sinus. But, I made myself do it and it literally took 5 minutes. I walked by it when it was done and it made me so happy and gave me a little spark of energy.
So here we go….
This literally took five minutes. I started with this antique looking pitcher and added a piece of floral foam. And, then started layering a few floral stems. I believe there are 8 stems TOTAL just for reference.
I LOVE and chose hops stems. The ones I have here were low in stock. So if they are gone, search “artificial hops stems,” you may be able to find them elsewhere. And I ended up adding a few apple blossom stems. The stems were long so I ended up cutting a lot of the end off, leaving a few longer to give this little spring arrangements a whispy look.
I added this wood charger to set my flower arrangement on. And, of course, added a candlestick because I always do. This particular one is also out of stock and rarely available. My glass jar of coffee beans was added for a different texture and because we use this every day. So, it’s easy to grab.
Tip: Use every day items within you kitchen decor. I love the look of this jar of coffee beans.
Did you see where I styled a little coffee corner? And, also another little area by the sink recently? Stay tuned for more styling sessions, because I am ready to get this cottage all deck out for spring. Let me know if there is a particular area you want to see next. I have a list started because I asked the same question over on social media.
