April 2015 Staging Tip of the Month

The pots in front of your house can look pretty dreary once the snow has melted but it’s not quite warm enough for flowers.  Here are a couple ideas to make your pots look beautiful, whether you are showing your house or hosting Easter dinner! (Photos courtesy of Pinterest)

Clip a few branches from a tree that normally buds in the spring.  Bring them inside and put them in a vase (or watering can) full of water.  The warm air will allow them to bloom quicker.  Just set the vase in your outdoor pots when you expect guests!

Or, you can plant some cold-hardy flowers like hyacinths or pansies and give them height with some pretty sticks or birch branches.
