Home is where we go to kick up our feet after a stressful day, binge watch our favorite tv shows, eat our favorite meals with loved ones and make lifelong memories. Our homes are where our hearts reside, and fresh flowers can help to make this living space a haven from the outside world. Fresh bouquets are one of the best ways to add beauty, decorate, and bring natural elements into your home. See which flowers we love for each room in our homes:
Hydrangeas In The Foyer
Beautiful blue, violet, pink and white hydrangeas are always a show stopper, whether they’re planted outside your home or elegantly displayed in your entryway. An arrangement of hydrangeas is a great way to fill up empty space in your home’s foyer and provide a pop of color when guests walk in. These flowers are also easy to dry and continue to be great statement bouquets long after. Place fresh cut hydrangeas in water and out of direct sunlight. To dry the flowers, simply let the water in the vase slowly evaporate over the next week!
Peonies In The Living Room
When you’re relaxing or entertaining guests in your living room, you want a bouquet that gives off soft, soothing vibes but still makes a statement. With their many intricate petals, sweet scent and gentle beauty, peonies are the perfect flower for a living room arrangement. To maximize the life of your peony bouquet, replace their water supply every other day and keep the blooms away from direct sunlight.
Calla Lilies In The Kitchen
While not everyone thinks of the kitchen as a place for a floral arrangement, a bouquet of calla lilies on your kitchen island can really freshen up the room! No one wants a strong floral scent layered on top of hints of tonight’s dinner, however. This makes the near fragrance-free calla lily a wonderful option. Not only is this flower stunning to look at, but it is also more durable than other popular bouquets and can hold up to the frequent foot traffic in your home’s kitchen!
Roses In The Bedroom
Roses are perhaps one of the most romantic and iconic flowers in the world. They come in a wide range of colors, from the boldest red to palest pink, and give off an enchanting floral scent. While you may want to put your rose bouquet on display in the busiest part of your home, there’s something to be said about falling asleep and waking up next to an arrangement of these beautiful blooms. Make your roses last as long as possible by refilling the vase every morning with cold water.
Eucalyptus In The Bathroom
Okay, we know this isn’t necessarily a flower, but believe us when we say that fresh eucalyptus stems are a perfect addition to your bathroom! Many people enjoy hanging fresh silver dollar eucalyptus from their shower head to ease sinus congestion or for some aromatherapy while. You can also keep a bunch of seeded eucalyptus in a vase on your bathroom counter and enjoy the fresh, clean scent as you get ready in the morning. After a couple of weeks in water, you can hang your eucalyptus bouquet to dry and enjoy it for years!
