During the month of April, we celebrate National Lawn and Garden Month and National Garden Month. The purpose may be to encourage homeowners across the country to beautify their front and back yards, and to plant spring flowers. New Yorkers know how unpredictable Spring weather can be. We all hope to see leaves develop on our flowering bushes, and stems and leaves to emerge from the spring bulbs we planted last fall. Our design teams at Blossom Flower Shops knows that no matter what April brings us weatherwise, our customers tend to forget that it’s just as important to brighten their homes with a taste of springtime. The best way to do that is by filling your home with the warmth you can only capture through rich, colorful spring floral designs.
We love tulips, but we can’t control the bloom time of the tulips we planted in our front or back yards. You don’t have to enjoy that parade of color that mass tulip plantings produce. If you’re looking for a flower arrangement that will go with a rustic, industrial or country-inspired decorating theme, we’ve got A Tulip Pail that will fill your home with color as it creates the illusion that you just picked the tulips and brought them into your home.
If you want something that is simple, sophisticated and elegant, yet suitable for any traditional, contemporary, modern or transitional decorating scheme, consider placing A Tulip Vase on your coffee table, an end table, a small dining table, or on the nightstands in any bedroom in your home. We place beautiful blush and white-colored tulips in a short cube-shaped vase. The tiny dark pink wax flowers provide an excellent contrast without taking any attention away from the uniqueness of the tulips.
If you’re looking for a more formal floral design, and an ideal one in a home for which the design style is very traditional, take a look at our Springtime Garden arrangement. We chose a sophisticated color palette that includes pink, purple, lavender and white colored flowers. We use tulips, carnations, roses, hydrangeas and other flowers to give this bouquet a lush look that is reminiscent of elegant English country garden.
When you want to be able to ignore the dreariness of a stormy and rainy day, our Gerbera and Daffodils design fill your room with the sunshine all day and all night. We lined the bubble bowl with curly willow before adding big, beautiful Gerbera Daisies and stunning yellow daffodils. We love the feeling we get at the sight of the first daffodil blooms every spring.
We encourage you to create your own traditions as you observe National Lawn and Garden Month this April. Fill your house with colorful springtime flowers as a means by which to enjoy the beauty of spring weather, inside your home.
