This upcoming weekend, Connecticut Country House is hosting a private event for WSHU and Suzanne Bona’s Sunday Baroque radio program. I want to make it really special, so the most beautiful and striking way to decorate my home is to pot up gorgeous flowering plants and strategically place them in the most important sightlines. This is a tried and true plan that always works hard for me.
From soft pastel hued foxglove that will be popped into plastic lined wooden buckets, to an antique French harvest basket stuffed with coreopsis, my spring garden’s sensibility will be felt throughout the entire house. I want my guests to see and feel the beauty of my gardens, inside and out.
Now, my secret is that once my event is over, and the blooms start to fade, I’ll take all the plants back outside and plant them into my gardens. This versatile decorating tip is also key in growing my garden beds each year. It’s a win-win!
Happy decorating and gardening!
