Beautiful on their own or paired with other florals, spring garlands add an elegant touch to any room. Below, we share tips on choosing the perfect pieces for your home and decorating ideas to help refresh your space.
How Do You Choose Artificial Spring Garlands?
With a wide array of artificial flowers, choosing which is perfect for you can be challenging. Focus on these top considerations to narrow down your search.
Select a garland that complements the overall look of your display area. Choose white-colored flowers for simplicity or go bold with red- and pink-colored flowers depending on your design or color scheme.
Indoor flower garlands are usually placed on front doors and mantels. You can also use them on staircase banisters, archways, or long tables. Meanwhile, outdoor pieces add a welcoming touch to your porch, patio, and other al fresco areas. When decorating outside, we recommend displaying outdoor-safe garlands for up to 3 months per year so their beauty lasts longer.
Where you plan to hang your artificial greenery helps determine the garland size you need. Balsam Hill’s faux flower garlands fit many areas of your home, including doors and archways. You can even connect two or more pieces to make a longer one for columns and pillars. For mantels and tables, allot at least 2 feet on each end so it drapes perfectly on the edges. Below is our recommended size guide:
5 to 7 feet – Best length for standard doors and mantels
8 to 10 feet – Ideal for double doors, wide archways, and long dining tables
How Do You Decorate with Spring Garlands?
From garden parties to cozy brunches, here’s how you can dress up your spaces with spring flower garlands.
Welcome guests with a spring garland for the front door that pairs well with a flower wreath. You can also wrap garlands around porch railings or patio posts to give your al fresco areas a refreshing look. The same decorating idea also works for outdoor swings, foyer walls, and other exterior lounge furniture.
Garlands can add interest to your windows, whether they’re placed inside or outside. Drape one across the ledge or use the entire frame to draw the eyes of onlookers in. To add visual interest, use lighted spring garlands so people can see the beauty of your flower décor even at night.
Use a spring floral garland as your centerpiece in place of a flower arrangement, then lay out matching tableware. For a creative look, use foliage in shades that complement the colors of your food or drinks.
Update the focal point of your living room by reusing a spring door garland as the main feature of your fireplace mantel. Whether you’re going for pastels or bright hues, use the same colors in your soft furnishings such as pillows, rugs, or curtains for a unified look.
