Flower decorations for the home are one of the most beautiful types of décor. Flower decorations can be simple or fancy, but even the simplest flower arrangements add color, life, and beauty to the home. Buying flowers from the florist is always an option, but you can also use flowers from your own yard or garden to make beautiful decorations for your home. Here are some simple ways to use flowers as décor.

Flower Bouquets


Adding bouquets of flowers to a room is the easiest way to use flowers in decorating. Bouquets can rely on seasonal flowers, such as tulips and daisies in the spring or chrysanthemums in the fall.  When flowers are not available outdoors, a trip to the local florist or farmer’s market might be necessary from time to time. Several different flower arrangements can be made from bouquets, as the flowers can be split up to decorate the house even more. Even a single daisy, rose, or other flower in a vase can change the look of the décor on a table. To save money in the budget, silk bouquets or other artificial flower arrangements are also ways to decorate.

Floating Candles


Combining flowers with candles is a gorgeous way to decorate the home. In bowls of floating candles, add petals of flowers or the whole bloom itself to the water. When the candles are lit, the flowers complement this romantic and elegant look. Floating candles and flowers are not limited to only inside home décor but can also be used outside when decorating for outdoor gatherings. Candles and flowers can be paired in pots, buckets, and even bird baths for a creative outside decoration.
