Spring Swags and Hanging Baskets
Spring swags and hanging baskets are the perfect way to brighten up your porch and patio for the new season. Freshly cut flowers, while beautiful, aren’t ideal for swags or baskets as they don’t last long and wilt only after a few days. Balsam Hill’s collection features handcrafted blossoms designed with stunning realism.
What is a Floral Swag?
A floral swag is composed of flowers and greenery that’s mounted on doors and walls or placed on top of mailboxes as a decorative accent. The arrangement usually has a teardrop shape, but larger ones can be shaped into an arch for a grander display.
How Do You Hang a Swag on a Door?
Balsam Hill’s spring swags for front doors have a loop at the back so you can easily hang them from hooks or nails. If you’re worried about damage from drilling or hammering, try adhesive hooks, suction cups, magnetic hangers, or over-the-door hangers.
What are the Best Spring Floral Swags?
Here are some of Balsam Hill’s best-selling spring swags:

What is the Purpose of a Hanging Basket?
Hanging baskets are decorative planters or containers suspended from chains or ropes. They’re used to spruce up spaces, especially outdoor areas like the porch or patio. Spring hanging baskets commonly feature bright flowers to match the season, while fall ones may have greenery and florals in deep autumn hues.
Where is the Best Place to Put Hanging Baskets?
Hanging baskets are versatile and can be hung from ceilings and fences. If you plan to display outdoors, choose outdoor-safe pieces to ensure they remain vibrant and beautiful longer. Here are some of the places where you can put them:
- Porches and patios
- Garden fences
- Sheds or barns
- From a shepherd’s hook
What are the Best Spring Hanging Baskets?
