Wake up from your hibernation. Go on - just one more yawn. Then throw the windows wide open. “Look! Everything is awakening!” Step out of your cocoon, go outdoors, see how nature is gently emerging. Suddenly it’s there! In the blink of an eye: flowers everywhere! Spring has sprung. For you.
Embrace spring and celebrate the season. To help you we’ve created a dossier full of floral spring tips so that you can feel, smell and taste the spring. Let’s start with the basics.
Classic Spring flowers
Spring brings a new parade of flowers. What are the real classic spring flowers? We can start refreshing our vases with the classics like ranunculus, hyacinth and daffodil. Then we fill the house with cheerful gerberas, vintage carnations and - oh la la - the flamboyant peony. You’re going to need more vases this season!
Start with a clean slate. Roll up your sleeves - or even better, put on a sleeveless T-shirt - and launch yourself into the spring cleaning Marie Kondo style. Whilst naturally enjoying the beautiful scent of a home-made home fragrance.
Get creative with Spring Flowers
If you're desperate to get to work with flowers, two DIY craft projects will keep you happy for quite some time, and will create a spring mood in your newly refreshed home. We’re sharing a tutorial for creating a floral curtain made of real flowers for your window, and how to make a tulip garland to display on the table or on your front door.
Early birds, late breakfasts and evening snacks
We surprise the early-morning heroes with a lavish gesture in the form of a small bouquet: the early bird spring bouquet! And for those who enjoy a little lie-in, you can invite them to a hanami brunch: a pick and mix of century-old traditions and new rituals with an Asian flavour.
For later in the day we have put together a spring menu for you in the form of a hummus, falafel and tulip wrap and a panna cotta dessert filled with roses, sprinkled with crunchy honeycomb. We have created these dishes in conjunction with chef and cook book author Yvette van Boven and delicious.magazine What a delight: flowers on your plate.
You can find a &Spring board bursting with flowers on Pinterest. Be inspired, repin and comment to your heart’s content. Do you have your own spring board with flowers? Let us know where we can admire it.
