It has been a flower filled weekend over here with the wedding reception and the flowers are continuing with a beautiful spring look- a London inspired spring doorscape.
One of my favorite things when we were in London was taking in all of the floral covered fronts of shops. They seem to have a way with flowers over there- and those lovely flower doorscape decorations with flowers covering storefronts and doors were everywhere.
Of course, they just go together so beautifully. And so, while I was working on the different design ideas for wedding week and also a burst of spring sunshine with Balsam Hill- we chatted about ideas for creating a London inspired doorscape right here in California. And I am obsessed with how it turned out.
This started with a flower filled garland- this one is covered in cabbage roses which adds a lovely romantic feeling.
Tip: You can use any type of garland for this look. Simple, unadorned eucalyptus greens or something flower filled in your favorite color and style
It’s all in the layers
The key with getting the look is all in the layers. Those London storefronts had lots of lovely layers of flowers that framed the doorway perfectly. I started with one garland on each side and layered a couple to create a wider amount of flowers and a whole lot of lovely. In total, there were 3 short garlands on each side. If you had long garlands you could probably use 4-5 and get a similar look.
Tip: Layers of lovely is key. Start with one, layer another and keep going depending on how wide of an area you would like to frame in.
Pretty on repeat
I also added flower filled baskets to bring in some fullness and drape near the bottom.
Fluff it up
One of the other keys to the look is to get that fluff on. Fluff the garland to create even more fullness and fill in any bare spaces.
Get the Look
This particular garland is currently sold out but you can use any beautiful flower filled garlands and get a similar look.
I will share the step by step how to put this together in another post- along with a second look idea for this door- coming next week.
What do you think of how this came doorscape came together?
