I’m not much of a gardener.
I’d really love to be a proficient gardener and if I was, boy would I have grand plans. I’d have an English garden. Or maybe it would be more like a cottage garden. Certainly I’d have a cutting garden.
There would be peonies. And dahlias. And lilacs for sure!
But the reality is, I’ve only recently been able to plant my patio containers and keep them flourishing.
At least for a while.
I do have the space for a garden even though we live in a townhouse. But my love of flowers simply does not extend to an ability to cultivate them.
Maybe some day.
Instead I love to decorate my home with nods to the garden.
Gathering some flowers to put out on a tray? Toss in a few seed packets with lovely drawings for extra color.
Vintage garden urns are a huge favorite and I’ve collected several. Tall and thin, wide and squat, rectangular planters and French jardinaires. The chippier the better because they look like they’ve been outdoors weathering for years.
I’m also crazy about garden statues. Vintage stone or concrete, resin reproductions, they all work for me.
And of course I decorate with florals.
Fresh flowers, without a doubt. But faux, as well. I also love floral patterns on linens and china. Chintzware dishes, botanical print artwork, floral throw pillows with delicate blooms.
A neutral home can play host to all of these things!
So when it comes to buying gifts at this time of year, or even when shopping for my own accent decor, I love to buy pieces that are garden-inspired.
Some may be literal, like a tote full of garden tools, but others are more reminiscent of the garden without needing to go anywhere near the outdoors. A decorative watering can can serve both purposes. Just fill it with blooms for an indoor display.
Likewise small pots for a kitchen window sill herb garden.
I thought it would be fun to curate a garden-inspired shopping guide, revolving around these ideas and other garden themed decor.
Whether it’s actual gardening items like planters and gloves or decor for your home inspired by a pretty garden, this guide is all about greenery and springtime.
And if, like me, this is the closest you’ll get to actually gardening, make no apologies and shop as much as your heart desires! Enjoy the floral splendor!!
Then, maybe some day, I’ll surprise you and do a post about my thriving garden!
