It's official - we're in the summer season. The heat is on, the earth is lush and green, and flowers are in full bloom. As a nod to the season, it can be fun to transform the inside of your home to reflect the changes in the air by displaying with little vases of flowers that can be found outside in the summer. In an ideal world, we would probably all use real flowers to bring the ultimate summer experience inside our homes. However, because flowers require daily upkeep (and many of us travel a lot during the summer) it makes more sense sometimes to decorate using silk flowers.

\Decorating your house with silk flowers is such an easy and fun way to spruce up your home for the summer. If figuring out which flowers are in season for the summer scares you, don't worry; craft stores tend to only carry silk flowers when the real flowers are in season. Then, once you've purchased those flowers once, you can use them every year! As a matter of fact, you can buy silk flowers for each season, keep them in storage when they're not in season, and bust them out when the time is right.

Here are some popular summer flowers:

Bouvardia: These beauties are like little red, pink, white, and yellow fireworks, which (obviously) fit well in July. They add a little "bang" to any room.
Chrysanthemum: These come in all shapes, sizes, and sunny colors. This makes it easy for you to play off the already-established decor of your home.
Daisy: Meg Ryan's character Kathleen in You've Got Mail declares that daisies are the friendliest flower. By using them as decoration, you could potentially have the friendliest home on your block!
Gerbera: These blossoms are a bit bigger than daisies but have generally the same feel to them, and they come in a variety of colors!
Sunflower: If there's one thing that everyone thinks of when they hear the word "summer" it would have to be sunshine. These flowers not only literally soak up the sun, but they also resemble the sun. (They also transition well into fall, which affords you a little more decorating time.)

There are so many other flowers in season this summer. Take a look around outside and in your local craft store and find your own favorite summer flowers to light up your home this season!
