With the official start of spring this weekend, it’s time to renew and refresh our homes after a long winter!
Along with getting your homes cleaned, organized, and aired out, injecting bright, fresh color with spring flowers, held in a traditional vessel like the classic urn, is a beautiful way to welcome spring – just around the corner. In addition, smaller urns can be used on a buffet or console table for Easter entertaining! This beautiful arrangement was created by Green Parlour, here.
If you have a large foyer, a medium sized urn can be filled with tulips, cherry blossom branches or if you’re just stepping out of a frigid winter, bulbs of daffodils. Cabbages, roses, ferns and boxwood spheres are other options to include in the planning of your spring-time urn décor… which later, for summer, can be filled in with treasures from the sea. Below are a colorful collection of spring blooms in urns to inspire you.
Hopefully, the climate where you are located has warmed up enough to get outside to begin working in your garden for spring…

If your urn planters have been empty all winter, just adding fresh green boxwoods or ferns can breath new life into your home or garden for spring…

Acanthus urns, with ferns on plinths create a grand entrance to welcome guests, and welcome spring!
And when summer rolls around, adding fragrant roses and peonies mixed with pearls? YES!
