It’s not uncommon for the winter blues to set in, especially as the season reaches its peak. Here in Michigan, we’re getting our fair share of winter weather as the polar vortex seems to be hovering right over our backyard. However, your décor doesn’t have to look as gloomy as the weather! To perk up your home during winter, splash some color to your indoor space with winter flowers! Here’s a list of winter flowers that can perk up your home décor in an instant!
Pale pink tulips make for a lovely centerpiece
First on our list of winter flowers is the tulip. Tulips are famous for their beauty and wonderful range of colors that any home will instantly become more cheerful with a vase or two of tulip buds! These flowers bloom from late winter to spring, so they might be more expensive during the off-season. However, this flower is definitely worth the wait, especially when the flowers bloom completely. They look beautiful anywhere in the house, but they are most effective as a tablescape centerpiece!
