How to Decorate with Floral Picks

Whether you’re decorating for fall or winter, the fresh blooms of the season are a great way to add color to your home décor. For foliage pieces, the addition of floral picks will bring an earthy atmosphere and add rustic appeal to your spaces. It can also help you add variety to your décor and provides options for a variety of looks. Here are our recommendations to add some special touches inside your home using floral picks.

The Wreath

A wreath is the foliage piece most commonly used to greet guests even before they enter your home. Give your guests a vibrant welcome by splashing some seasonal colors on your wreath with floral picks. For a fall-inspired wreath, a combination of red berries and small pumpkins will sit perfectly well on a generous helping of colorful autumn leaves. Infusing this medley with some dried twigs and small branches will complete the look.

The Tree

One wonderful thing about floral picks is that they are flexible. Before using them on your tree, fluff or shape them according to the way you want them to look. As you place them on your tree, make sure that you alternate them with the branches for a balanced and layered appearance. Aside from adding a designer look to your tree, floral picks can help coordinate its look with your overall décor. You can also use them as tree toppers to make your tree look taller and more majestic.

The Stocking

The sight of empty stockings hung by the hearth may stir some excitement and anticipation for Christmas presents, but one filled with floral picks will add much more interest to your holiday décor. An oft-overlooked décor piece, stockings can be decorated to act as a unifying element of your home’s overall design. Seasonal floral picks will help tie all your décor together into a single theme.

You can make your gifts more special by adding small, thoughtful touches to the gift wrapper. Incorporate some floral picks into gift bows and ribbons to add a seasonal accent to your gifts, or do away with the fancy ribbons for a minimalist look. You’d be surprised at how a sprig of holly or a berry spray can make a noticeable difference.

The Tablescape

Last but not least, don’t forget to add some floral picks to your dinner table or mantel. On the mantel, they work well in combination with a wreath, as the focal point, and a garland draped on the mantel itself. On your dinner table, they are perfect with foliage centerpieces. Add a bowl wreath and decorate your chairs with floral picks to complete the look.

The next time you decorate your home, remember to incorporate floral picks into your décor to complement your overall theme. Adding small touches here and there will go a long way in elevating your home’s look.
