Fresh Flowers

Fresh flowers work as decorations nearly everywhere:

  • Add to an entry hall or foyer to greet guests.
  • Include centerpieces on tables throughout the house to add to the home décor.
  • Brighten a bathroom or kitchen with smaller summer flower arrangements.
  • Float the flowers in bowls as nice arrangements for a summer party or event.
  • Use water picks, which slip onto the stem of the flower and place them around a house for a little color.
  • Combine these flowers with other seasonal fruit to create an eye-catching centerpiece for a table or celebration.

Dried Flowers

While fresh flowers provide a wonderful fragrance, using dried flowers also adds a nice touch during the summer. Saves you from remembering to water as well so they can be left while you are away on a summer vacation. Here are some ideas:uniquec3

  • Bundle different summer flowers together and hang them upside down to dry. These flowers could include carnations, hydrangea, and roses, which dry nicely and retain their color.
  • Add in summer herbs for fragrance, texture, and interest, including thyme, parsley, rosemary and cilantro.
  • Once put together, you can put these in vases, teapots, and other containers as well as hang them from a curtain rod. They can also be put together like fresh flower arrangements.
