Happy First Day of Spring!!!

The calendar says its Spring!  I know I have a serious case of Spring Fever.  The other day when it was 35 degrees I had to take a peek at my flower beds to see if there was any activity!  Low and behold underneath that snow and buried down deep in the debris there are a few sprouts.  So, I think it really is going to show up!  Hang in there…… its bound to warm up soon! www.BlossomBucket.com

Why do we wear green on St. Patrick’s Day?

Don’t be surprised if you get pinched today if you are not wearing green!   It’s an American tradition that probably started in the early 1700s. St. Patrick’s revelers thought wearing green made one invisible to leprechauns, fairy creatures who would pinch anyone they could see (those not wearing green).  So, people began pinching those who didn’t wear green as a reminder that leprechauns would sneak up and pinch green-abstainers.   Hope you chose to wear green today!!!!

HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY!!!


Use Baskets for just about anything!

Hanging baskets can be used for so many things other than plants.  I like to use them to hold candles on my deck.  The candle is protected from the wind so they stay lit.  I put a group of them together hanging at different levels to create a warm ambiance.  I also like to use them in my craft room to hold my odds and ends.  I can hang them over my work place and see what I have to work with.  Hang them in your kitchen and put your fruit in them.  There is a lot you can do with hanging baskets! www.BlossomBucket.com

Add a Touch of Greenery for accents to your Decorating!

If you are like me you really don’t have time to take care of indoor plants.  I have tried over the years and they always seem to die!   The problem is I really like the look of plants in my home.  They just add a touch of greenery that accents your decorating.   Problem solved!   The new artificial plants are incredible.  You really have to look at them to determine if they are real.  They come in a number of sizes, shapes, and colors.  I love the herbs!  They are small and just give a hint of greenery to my decorating.  www.BlossomBucket.com

Time to get Organized and Decorating with Clocks!

     Use our wire baskets to get organized!  These wire baskets have fabric liners and are great organizers.  You can use them in the bathroom to hold your washcloths, lotions, hair accessories, and makeup.

     How about the kitchen?  Use them to hold your napkins, utensils, and or fruit.  These inexpensive baskets are trendy and functional. 

     Clocks are the newest decorating trend.  They don’t even need to work!   Fill a glass container with old pocket watches and you have a nice display piece for your side table. Make a collage of your family with a clock in the center.  It’s a functional piece as well as a great display of your family pictures.  Clocks have been turned into decorator pieces that fit all decorating styles.  The new table clocks are great for your desk as well as on your mantel.  They can be part of your décor in any room. www.BlossomBucket.com

Pallets are all the Rage for Decorating!

 

Pallets are all the rage right now for decorating. Surprisingly, you can do A LOT with pallets.  It’s a trendy new look that is great for so many decorating themes.  As an industrial look, we covered our wall with pallets, added some old wood presses, and a work bench I bought at an auction.   Then, we started adding our black and tan collection of wall box signs.  We cut up pallets and used the boards for our shelves.  The boards are very easy to attach with L brackets.  We added burlap to the top of the wall to finish off the look.  It turned out great!  You can also use them in your garden theme.  What a great look for your pots, plants, and garden accessories.

 

Send us photos of your pallet displays and we will post them on our site.  The best display gets a $100.00 gift certificate for Blossom Bucket product.  www.BlossomBucket.com

Fast and Easy Centerpieces for Weddings, Graduations, Picnics, and more!

These glass jars slide right in their chicken wire metal holders.  A great look for your spring even!

They come in a variety of sizes so you can choose what works best for your table.  Use the single jar holder and add a single rose for an elegant look.  The double is great for a gathering of fresh spring flowers.  I like to add a bunch of Baby’s Breath to the double to give it a fresh soft look.  You can add lace and ribbon in your event colors to give it a bit of color.  If you want to go green, just buy mini ferns and put them in the triple glass compartment holder.  If you want to create great favors for your events use herbs!   Your guest can take them home and use the herbs!  www.BlossomBucket.com

Redecorating your Home

This is the time of the year everyone is thinking about redecorating their house.   It can be an overwhelming process deciding colors, style, and flow to the rest of the house, decorating, and budget.  I find it is best to start with the area you dislike the most.  Take on one small project at a time.  If that goes well, expand the project little by little.  This way you can keep your budget under control as unexpected things always crop up.  Before you get started, make a story board.  Pull pictures out of magazines or print from internet sites colors, furnishings, patterns, furniture, and accessories.  Put these pictures on a large board so you can see them all together.  Place the board in an area where you can “live with them”.  This really helps you absorb the design and gives you a better idea of your style.  Many times what decorating style we think we are, is not what we really like.

 

I helped a friend redecorate her house and she thought her style was Scandinavian Country. This is a colorful eclectic mix with an aged effect. When I went to the house her walls were beige and all of the furniture was black. Didn’t seem very colorful to me! She bought some lamps and accessories for the room we were decorating that were glass with silver bases. That is not Scandinavian Country! Turns out she really likes classic formal decorating with touches of bright color. As you can see it is easy to think you are one style, but you really are another.

 

Take your time and form a plan.  When you pick your paint, make sure you get a test jar of the paint.  It’s so hard to make sure the color is correct from those little chips!!  Paint a nice size test area on your wall and see if that is the right color.  Once you have your colors you can start creating. www.BlossomBucket.com
