Are you ready for a spring refresh? I’ll show you how you can liven things up by bringing outdoor elements inside your home for spring.
Bringing the Outdoor Elements Inside for Spring
I don’t know about you but I am SO READY for spring!
I’ve missed the outdoors so much and love this time of year when I can bring in some of those beautiful outdoor elements and surround myself with garden inspiration.

Fresh Cut Flowers
Depending on the time of the season, there are many cut flowers to choose from, both in the garden and at the florist.
Tulips, stock, eucalyptus, and roses make a great statement together. For this arrangement, I went to a local flower shop.
This is a great combination from my garden. Hellebores, Japanese Roses, and Quince make a gorgeous arrangement.
A bunch of hellebores at the beginning of spring are a welcome addition to any table.
I have a few Japanese rose bushes in the backyard. They really brighten up the kitchen this time of year.
I love tulips for spring. Doesn’t everybody?
I used to pick some up at Trader Joe’s. But then I tried something.
I planted a raised bed full of these spring bulb beauties in my garden this year so I could cut them anytime I wanted to take them indoors.
Next year I will have 3 or 4 raised beds full of tulips.
I really got my fill of them this year.
Daffodils and amaryllis are perfect spring bulbs to grow indoors and watch their progress.
Primroses, African violets, Begonias, and Cyclamen are some of the flowering plants I grow indoors in the early spring.
House plants are a great way to bring the outdoors in for spring. But I do have a confession to make. This ivy plant is the only one I have in my house right now that is real. The other plants are faux.
There are so many beautiful tree and shrub spring blossoms that would look stunning in your home. Whether you force bloom them or bring them in as they just start to bloom, they will make a huge impact.
Faux Flowers and Greenery
When you don’t have the option of fresh flowers, faux flowers are the next best thing. And I have to admit, I sometimes like the faux version even more because they last longer, and I can add them to my baskets.

And I love my faux succulents in this rusty vintage toolbox.

Fresh and Faux Fruit
Both fresh and faux fruit create a much-needed pop of color for spring.
