Weekly Spotlight: Summer 2019 Florals

Wednesday, June 12th, 2019

We introduced a new selection of faux florals in our Summer 2019 catalog, so they are the subject of this edition of Weekly Spotlight. And since there are six options to choose from, we’re straying from our typical five featured items format so you can see all of them right here. For more details click on the images, and check out our tips for creating the perfect flower arrangement in your home.

Wreaths

Our two newest wreaths can be seen here. To the left is the Purple Summer Wreath, named after our current season and the subtle pops of purple among greenery and white petals. This is a great accent for when you want to add a touch of color but maintain a neutral and natural look. The Summer Pink Mini Wreath may have a smaller diameter, but its bold petals pack a delightful burst of color and charm.

Bunches, Stems and Sprays

Whether you want to decorate with multiple single stems or create a full look with just one bunch or spray, our new selection of faux florals has what you need. The African Violet features a short stem supporting a full bloom of purple petals as well as green leaves. This particular variety is available in two sizes for more decorative flexibility in a vase or planter.

The Geranium Bunch is perfect for summer, not only because its authentic counterpart blooms this season, but because its delightful red color fits right into patriotic party decorations and bright gardens.

We had to introduce a new version of the Sunflower Bunch. This one in particular features an airy look and can be propped in a vase or container for immediate seasonal charm.

Last but certainly not least, our new Lacey Bunch is the perfect addition to any flower arrangement (although its perfectly beautiful on its own, too), because it adds even more depth and fullness while complementing whatever blooms you already have.

Trivets

It’s always a good idea to have a few trivets in the kitchen, but they are also handy throughout your home on end tables or a coffee table. Use them to protect surfaces from hot dishes and pans, whether you’re serving dinner for family or entertaining friends with a hot dip or appetizer.

The Blue Hydrangea Jute Trivet is an addition to the Blue Hydrangea Collection. Designed by artist Phyllis Stevens, this trivet brings the charm of a beautiful hydrangea blossom all year long.

A heart is formed on the Paw Prints Jute Trivet, both as a sweet image and expression of love for your family pets.

May is coming to a close, which means the season of outdoor living is practically here.

Deck Safety

Now is the perfect time to inspect your deck for wobbly sections, loose screws and/or nails, and make note of other wear and tear. Read this post for more suggestions regarding deck safety.

Web Exclusives from Sturbridge Yankee Workshop

Although a more specific post, the featured outdoor accents can be conveniently found among our selection of web exclusive decor. At the very least, we think this particular post provides some inspiration for how to utilize and furnish outdoor spaces.

Porch and Outdoor Lighting

We had to include a renovation-type post, and this one is small enough for anyone to try. Switch out light fixtures or add them; doing so will make a big impact outside your home this summer and throughout the year.
