Decorating with Sunflowers

Yesterday I visited a U-pick flower farm and they had gorgeous sunflowers ready for snipping. This inspired me to think about how to use sunflowers in my home as fall decor to add a pop of color.

There’s no denying the beauty of these cheery flowers. Their sunny petals are sure to cheer your spirits and bring a little sunshine into your home when the days are shortening.

Sunflowers come in a range of sizes so choose your vase accordingly. Here, medium-sized flowers look great in a white vase on a window sill.

I love this slightly messy arrangement in a rustic vase. The bouquet demands attention in an all-white kitchen.

When decorating with sunflowers, you don’t have to limit yourself to the actual flower itself. Sunflowers add color and style in paintings or fabrics.

Bouquets of sunflowers look great when dining outdoors, too.

Late summer and early fall is a great time for decorating with sunflowers. They’re readily available at farm markets and grocery stores alike.

Later next week I’ll share more about my trip to the U-Pick Flower place down the road from me. It was beautiful and the experience refreshed my spirits!

  2. I love flowers of all kinds, but sunflowers are my favorite! They are so bright and pretty. I admit that I am a teeny bit envious of your flower farm nearby- I wish I had one close!
