I love to bring flowers into my home. It is an easy decorating idea and can really brighten things.

Sometimes, they are store bought.

Sometimes they are from the grocery store.

But of course, my favorite, is when they come from my own yard.

Decorating Ideas: Using flowers in your home

Even something that is easily accessible like forsythia can make a bold and colorful presence.


But when they are not available, why not bring in flowers with art.


Or, offer an invite to your garden.


Both of these lovely items are available through my sponsors.

The Old Post Road is offering 20% off for 5/16 & 5/17 2013 on all orders. Just use code FINDING at checkout. Hurry! Makes a great graduation gift!

And Cottage in the Oaks is also offering 20% of all orders, now through May 31, 2013. Use code SPRING at checkout.

And when all else fails, you can head outside and make your own fairy garden. It is one of my favorite projects, and I have created a whole clipboard of ideas and inspiration so that you make your own (or many!) over on Hometalk.

Thanks for reading!
