These gorgeous and affordable cherry blossom and peony flowers might be my favorite Amazon purchase ever!
Decorate For Spring with a few fun things from Amazon ~ here's what I'm loving right now!
It's so tempting when you walk through Hobby Lobby or Home Goods this time of year to snag allllll the Spring things (goodness the happy Easter bunnies and cute carrot garlands are fun, aren't they?), but sometimes they're not quite what you really might want in your space when you bring them home. The last few years I've decorated with more and more simple classic Spring flowers, a pretty candle and a great book, and I love the way our space cozies right up without purchasing seasonal decor that won't last more than a week.
So before you head to Hobby Lobby or Michael's and spend $100 on Easter decor… consider trying these:
As someone who's kind of minimalist, I feel absolutely silly buying books on minimalism to decorate my home that I don't totally need, but goodness, the books are beautiful and they're the perfect way to fluff a basic coffee table or bookshelf beautifully.
Amazon Best Coffee Table Books
Tip: Take the paper jackets off your books when staging in your home. The top book is Home Body by Joanna Gaines and looks NOTHING like the paper cover but sits up beautifully!
- Welcome Home (this one is the smallest of the books, but it's one of my all time favorite books about your home)!
- Home Body by Joanna Gaines
- Minimalista (this one is just beautiful to look through!)
- Made for Living
- Down to Earth
- Live Beautiful
The bonus? The books are so good when you actually open them up and peruse the pages too. Win-win. 🙂
I got these on Amazon this Spring and love them almost as much as my cherry blossoms and peonies (keep reading….)
I still absolutely also LOVE my pink cherry blossoms – but I also have a few other cute fake flower arrangements around the house that I wanted to recommend! Keep in mind that I love these because they're very real looking – but you can also get less pricey options at Hobby Lobby or other stores as well.
Here are my 3 most recent Amazon Flower purchases – I have them displayed on my console, my dining room table and my breakfast table and make it just feel so much happier in here!
White Cherry Blossoms 4-Stems (These are SUPER tall – but you can bend the stems to fit any size jar)
Now get a BIG jar…
The only other thing you need is a nice BIG jar – I love this Anchor Hocking 2 Gallon Jar – you can get it from around $20 at World Market (free shipping at $49) or $25 at Walmart with free store pickup.
You might also be able to score a nice beg jar at the thrift store or look around for other glass containers at Walmart or Target.
You can bend the branches to fit your jar – or cut them – but I'm keeping them long in case I decide to move them into a taller vase one day.
The vase has come in handy SO MANY TIMES over the years – we've used them for pantry organization and party food organization and all sorts of things. They'll never NOT find a use around here so they're so worth the money in my opinion!
Last summer I was thumbing (um, scrolling), through Instagram and saw a few beautiful rooms with the most gorgeous flowers.
I assumed they were fresh because they were so pretty, but when I saw a swipe-up to Amazon I was like . . . what?
OH MY WORD.
After wasting too much money on fresh flowers (that die too fast!), these are my new favorite Amazon purchase ever.
Here you go.
And these huge cherry blossom branches are priced around $15-$30. Not the least expensive bushes I've ever seen (and I seriously should have ironed my tablecloth to show you!), but I adore them. (Looks like the Light Pink are sold out, but you can get the darker pink here!).
