Sunflowers are perfect for autumn décor and they are a lot more versatile than many people think. These flowers are both large and bright which means that they are excellent for making any room that much warmer and more welcoming. Here are some lovely ideas for decorating with sunflowers.
One idea is to make a large flower arrangement consisting of long-stemmed sunflowers. All you need is a tall, clear vase and enough tall sunflowers to create a full, but not overcrowded, display. Another option is to create individual flower displays. Use small vases and add one sunflower to each vase and line your table or windowsill with a few of these displays.
You can also make your own sunflower-themed placemats. You only need a round piece of cardboard and a selection of leaves. If the leaves are already yellow, then great. If not, you can always spray paint them yellow before you use them. Stick the leaves to the cardboard circle and make sure that you create a few layers for added fullness.
Another key to remember is that you need to keep the colour scheme in mind. This means that you can always add extra yellow, green, and brown decorative elements. This includes your tablecloth, napkins, and even candles. There are plenty of sunflower-themed decorations including sunflower napkins and wooden accessories like napkin rings.
When preparing your menu, it’s also a good idea to opt for seasonal vegetables as well as any meats that will complement them. Keep your plates bright and colourful to make the meal even more appealing to you, your family, and any other guests.
