Spring Is Here!

Nothing says spring more than to see daffodils and tulips popping up, and  forsythias, dogwoods and cherry blossoms in bloom. But my idea of welcoming spring is to put a wreath full of flowers on my front door. On one of my many visits to my favorite store, Home Goods, I snagged an empty grapevine door basket that was screaming "buy me"! I had been looking for something different to put on my door and was really excited when I saw it.  I started thinking about how I would decorate it and what type of flowers I would use. I thought about using purple pansies or yellow forsythias or even pink cherry blossoms, but on a trip to Michael's, I chose a lavender spray that I fell in love with. I also picked up grosgrain ribbon in a matching lavender polka dots.

The flower basket was easy to put together. First, placing floral foam in the bottom (there is a plastic liner), sticking the lavender flowers in and adding some purple balled greenery as a filler.

I love the simple beauty of this door basket. It looks really great on my frontdoor and it lets me and guests know that Spring Is Here!
