Did you notice all the flowers in my new office I revealed last week? I’m so anxious for spring that I went out and bought a few potted tulips to brighten up my space.
I love buying potted bulbs instead of cut flowers in the spring, they give me the same color but last longer and I love that I can replant them in my yard for the next year! I picked these up at the grocery store for less than $5 each but you can find them at flower shops and garden centers too.
The little red ones came wrapped in a plethora of bright foil, decorated for Valentine’s Day, but I just took all that “stuff” off the pot and dropped it in this adorable little lined burlap pot cover I picked up at Pick Your Plum a while back. The little wooden tag was 99 cents at the craft store. To give it a cute look I gave it a couple of quick coats of chalkboard spray paint and now it’s tracking the Spring Countdown!
Aren’t they gorgeous? I ended up deciding to share the wealth and gifted these to a friend who could use a little pick-me-up. Who could resist smiling with gorgeous flowers like these?
This pot I kept for my office because I was just head over heels in love with the bright colors of the tulips. For this one I spray painted a 99 cent cheap plastic pot in Gloss White and added a little jute twine across the top. I held the jute twine in place with a dot of hot glue.
Do you love buying and decorating with potted bulbs as much as I do in the Spring? What bulbs are your favorites?
