Bringing in Spring

Bringing In Spring Tip #3 - Flowers & Plants

Flowers and plants are a great way to bring spring into your home!

Many grocery stores have a section where you can buy fresh flowers and small house plants; and generally they are at a great price. Fresh flowers in a vase on the kitchen table, on a night stand in the bedroom, on the coffee table in the living room and even in a small vase on the bathroom counter can make a room feel more alive! That's probably why fresh flowers emit a feeling of spring; spring brings new life. 
They don't even necessarily have to be fresh. There are a lot of places where you can get "faux" flowers that look a great deal like the real thing. An added bonus...they last longer! Megan over at HWH has a great little post about faux flowers.

Small house plants are great too. I especially like ivy. It's extremely easy to keep up with and it's a nice green plant that adds some life to any room. Especially when it's presented in such a cute way like the photo below.

Such an easy and relatively inexpensive way to bring in spring!
Do you have any favourite flowers or small house plants that you like to place around your home?

Oh, and you must check out this cute idea!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
