My green thumb is ready to come out of hibernation! Is yours? We just had a beautiful spring weekend here in Seattle and now I'm ready to pull on the gardening gloves and dig in to some soil.
Below are a few ideas I love as well as some garden-inspired decorating ideas to bring inside the house.
Vertical Herb Garden in a Shoe Caddy
From Birds and Blooms
Great solution for small spaces and taking advantage of walls that get a lot of sunlight. I have a back porch that this would look nicely on and have easy access to fresh herbs while cooking.
So easy to forget what is planted where! And I never want to throw away the info packets that seeds and starter plants come with because I know I'll have a question about one of my flowers in the middle of summer. Perfect way to keep all the information together and within easy reach.
Planter boxes make great centerpieces because they cover the length of a table and are low enough for conversations without being intrusive. I think it'd be sweet to have individually planted flowers inside each planter (opposed to a filled one), but the options are plenty. And when the party is over, the planter can go back outside in the sunshine. Lovely!
Add these to the garden centerpieces above! Very sweet to add guests initials and/or names to each pinwheel for nametags. Or skip the names and put herbs in each pot with their names on each pinwheel. I love the motion and color these bring to a table, too.

Easy and pretty! Create a seasonal wreath featuring garden delights from a magazine or book. A second-hand book is a good choice, especially if the pages feature the same types of images. Follow the link above to see the tutorial. This will hang nicely on the front door, inside the kitchen or even out on a garden shed.
