3. Floral Prints And Fresh Flower Accessories
I know, I know – florals for spring? Groundbreaking. Although Miranda Priestly may not approve of this idea, there is nothing sweeter than wearing some spring flowers, or even just spring prints. If you are a little more daring, try wearing spring flowers in your hair, or on your lapel. If not, simply buying a cute floral print handkerchief can add a touch of spring flowers to most outfits – tie it around your neck or your purse for day to day spring! Lastly, if you really want to be fresh as a daisy all the time, consider buying a floral perfume. If perfume is not up your alley, maybe try a floral essential oil!
4. Dried Flower Decorations
Dried spring flowers are perfect for letting your favourite posies last all throughout the springtime season. Whether you get a bouquet, or pick some flowers from your garden, after they have begun to dry slightly, hang your flowers upside down – this makes them dry better, and more shapely. Tie up these flowers in bunches, or hang them one by one by a piece of string for a beautiful spring flower garland.
5. Plant A Garden Or Just A Few Pots!
Spring flowers can be incorporated into your daily life for longer than just the the spring time! By planting a couple indoor flowers, you can have blooms year round. Place your flowers on your window sill, or in you kitchen, to bring life to any room. While you can also buy a lovely spring flower bouquet, if you can commit to taking care of a potted plant, this option will guarantee you a life full of spring flowers!
