Flower Buckets

Flower buckets

I think it is really important to have an inviting entrance to your home.

My personal preference are gorgeous, shiny, brightly coloured front doors preferably in royal blue or pillar box red with big brass knockers.

Sadly our current door is PVC white and non too exciting.

No worries,  there is much that can be done, from gorgeous doormats to a little bit of DIY inspiration.

Last night I noticed a few fallen flowers in our garden and I had some cut flowers that were just going over. A while ago on pinterest I saw a gorgeous bucket of flowers. …I have no idea where this was so I cannot credit it..but oh how pretty it looked. I decided to have a go at creating my own version of the flower bucket!

All you need is a Galvanised Metal Bucket and lots of pretty flowers. I went for a mix of colours but it would look equally gorgeous all the same flower and colour I think.

Doesn’t it look pretty. What  lovely way top welcome guests to your home or even just the postie!  It has made me smile all day today. An inviting doorway indeed!

I simply filled the bucket all the way up with water and floated the flower heads with just a bit of stalk. Simple and welcoming flower buckets take mere minutes.

    That is so pretty and a lovely idea, I have a vase on our picnic table that i like to add flowers to in summer, but I might try some other shape vases now too!

    These are so pretty, would not of thought of that at all. We have a very small front porch so no room for a bucket. We did plant the containers that are brimming with multi colours that are under our front room window. They make me smile each time I come home, I hope they make other smile too x
