It is no secret that I love flowers and all things green!  Spring is probably my favorite season of the year because of all the blooms.  But why just leave them outside?  I say bring flowers in and these pics offer some great inspiration on how you can do that. 



I love the positioning of this large arrangement of forced blooms. Instead of in the center of the table it is pushed against the wall which opens up the table to the important things - the food!

Placing an arrangement of flowers in front of a mirror creates an look of a painting with out the expense of art!  Plus you can change it up as you change your decor.

Mix up the types and textures of flowers you include in an arrangement to give it more visual weight and interest.

Hate the cost of buying cut flowers?  Use dried flowers to achieve a natural and rustic look.

Using a tall arrangement to create height in a room.  Branches are another cheap and long lasting idea to bring nature in while cutting the cost out!

Arrangements don't have to be the focal point in the room but they can be an important layer to include in your accessorizing. (That and I think this couch is beautiful!)

Use fragrant herbs to create a multi-sensory effect!  Ahhh... I love lavender.

Love how they use branches to make a sculptural element on this mantle!

Arrangements don't have to be big to make an impact - which saves money and space!

Never under estimate the effect simple greenery can have on a room!  Bamboo is cheap and cleans your air!  (Which in my mind is a great idea in the bathroom!)

Which one is your favorite??  Do you do flower arrangement or have plants in your home? Personally I would like to eventually have my own cut flower garden. (I am uber jealous of one of the ladies I work with who has so many that she "has" to bring them into the office!) Until that day - I will just have to enjoy my bamboo and other cat safe plants!   


Linking this up to the Inspired by Party with Melissa @ The Inspired Room. Go on over and get inspired!!

Wow, you make me want to spring clean and redecorate. Love these floral arrangements. I've got some lovely tulips brightening up my kitchen table right now. Gives me a lift whenever I go into cook :-)

I love the additions of bouquets or single bits of nature. Stopping from SITS!

I just realized that although I was following you on my blog, my little face didn't pop up here on your blog!! So you have a new follower that is an old follower!! Have a great weekend!

Thanks for the reminder that bringing our gardens inside is always uplifting. :) I have branches in our mater bedroom in a tall tin bucket. We cut the branches from our flowering plum, so they are a rich color. And, they are free! :)
