As Spring is just around the corner, it’s a great time to start decorating your outdoor space. You can do so many things to make your space perfect for your summer entertaining. The styles are endless!
-Make it fun with lots of ceramic colorful lanterns to light the way.
-Add strings of clear lights in your bushes and plants.
-Create vignettes using metal flower pots, hanging baskets, and crates.
-Use bottles in metal containers to hold your fresh garden flowers. They look great on your tables!.
-Use pea gravel in your walkways. The gravel helps keep the weeds down and is very attractive. I started using more gravel in different sizes in my flower beds instead of mulch. The upfront cost is higher but you only do it once! I think it also helps keep your weeds at bay.
We’ve got a great selection of items to get you started or to complete your outdoor spaces at www.BlossomBucket.com.
Take time to enjoy your outdoor decorating!

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
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!!!
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
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
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
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
