Summer flowers for your home
Summer is not only the best season for you garden, it’s also perfect for welcoming nature inside. With so many different types of flowers in bloom, it’s no wonder the air is so fresh and sweet around this time of year. We all want to welcome this fresh sweetness inside our homes which is why summer flower arrangements are so popular. When displaying summer flowers in your home, there are several things to consider. The first being the type of flowers you choose. Seasonal flowers are not only more affordable, but they are also known to last that much longer.
The second thing you should consider is the type of vase you want to use when displaying your summer bouquet. Depending on the colour of your flowers, you could choose a lemon-yellow vase, something bright green or another cheerful colour. When in doubt, remember that a clear glass vase is always an excellent choice for all bouquets. Display your summer blooms on your kitchen table, in your living room or even in your bedroom so that you have something beautiful to greet you every morning.
Consider house plants
If you want something that will last longer than a cut flower arrangement, how about potted plants? Plants can be displayed throughout your home and they have a number of benefits. There are many plants that produce flowers as well as those that help purify the air. Plants can be placed in various areas of your home. They can even be suspended from the ceiling in special hanging planters if you like. Hanging plants are great if you want to keep them away from children and pets.
Remember, you will need to keep cut flowers out of the summer sun and you will need water your plants more frequently. When the weather is warmer, the rate of evaporation is higher and this is why it’s even more important than ever to keep your plants and flowers hydrated.
