Sometimes, I can't help myself. There are days when I have the urge to decorate and when I've got nothing to do at home, I fulfill the need by decorating for other people..even when they don't expect it. On Saturday night, these urn planters in front of my friends' store, Vintage Fresh, got a spontaneous spring decor makeover courtesy of temperatures in the upper 50's coupled with my sudden urge for a little spring and the fact that the center of my own urn at home is still frozen solid.
There were cute little evergreen trees in the centers of them which had fallen victim to our really harsh winter this year so they'll need to be replaced when local nurseries get their stock but for now, they made a fine base for the addition of a few spring flowers from Hobby Lobby, a little tulle, and a few plaid bows.
Someone had already added cute little Easter stakes and a few eggs so I used them as well. All of the flowers that are in these pots are silk because that's what was available at 6:30 on Saturday evening when the urge struck....
All I really wanted was to create something bright and cheery to surprise my friends when they arrived on Sunday morning to open their doors for Downers Grove's first ever Bridal Walk and to fill the urns for the next few weeks until warmer weather arrives and we can plant them for summer!
If you have urn planters that need a little pick me up, consider adding brightly colored netting, and bows along with a few flowers (faux or real) to create a sunny spring welcome at your door. And if you live near me, be warned...if I have a few hours, this could happen to you!
