It’s fun to think outside the box when decorating your home for spring. Or in this case, it’s fun to think outside the vase :). What could be prettier than a simple spring bouquet? A pretty spring bouquet in a basket!
Grab some tulips or any blooming flowers from a local farmer’s market or store (I got mine at Trader Joe’s) and a basket (mine is this large hanging wall basket). If you have fresh flowers (rather than bulbs or potted plants) you’ll want to put a drinking glass or vessel inside the basket to hold water and then place the stems in the container. I actually put TWO mason jars inside mine, they aren’t too wide so they help the flowers to stand up better, too. If you’re using blooming spring bulbs or plants (which is good because they will last longer!), line your basket with plastic before setting the plants inside.
Tulips tend to have a mind of their own, so they will flop whatever way they want to, they don’t have to be perfectly arranged! I think that’s part of their charm. I remove one of the leaves on each stem make more room for the flowers and put them in cold water. You’ll want to refresh the water often.
So easy! Now you have a charming spring bouquet to set on your counter, dining table, entry console or nightstand to inspire Place your basket wherever you will see the most often or where you need the most joy! It would make an adorable spring gift as well.

By the way, over on Instagram, several sweet friends and I decided this would be “Dutch door week”! I LOVE my Dutch doors, they are so fun to open in spring when the sun is shining and the birds are chirping! I posted a live video yesterday talking about my kitchen remodel and Dutch doors yesterday, you can see it in the Dutch Door highlight on my Instagram profile to catch the replay if you missed it!
