Our favorite part about spring cleaning is adding spring flowers to help freshen up the home after a long winter. Live green plants, full arrangements, and even single stems remind us that the spring weather is almost here. Beautiful blooms also add a pop of color, give off beautiful fragrances, and promote feelings of relaxation and happiness while improving air circulation. What more could you ask of a plant or flower?
Here at Al’s Florist, the top floral shop in Hollywood, we have the perfect flowers to add to your spring home decor. From the bedroom and kitchen, and even the bathroom, we know which blooms work best in each room of the house. We also rounded up some of our favorite spring-cleaning tips to help refresh, reorganize, and refine your home this season.
Refresh Your Bathroom
If you’re wondering how to deep clean your bathroom in a green and earth-friendly way, we have a few tips for you to try. Trade in the paper towels or new cleaning rags for your old towels or t-shirts. Then, mix white vinegar with distilled water for a chemical and toxic-free bathroom cleaner that truly works. While you have the distilled vinegar handy, pour one cup down the drain to keep the bathroom sink, and shower free of clogs.
Refresh with Flowers
If you’re not fond of the smell of your new chemical-free cleaner or you want to freshen up your bathroom even further, the answer seems crystal clear to floral experts like us. Find a small flower arrangement with your favorite spring colors to emit a beautiful scent.
- Eucalyptus: Offers a clean aroma of minty pine
- Peace Lily: Helps purify the bathroom air
- Tulips: Make your bathroom feel brighter and lighter while inspiring happiness
- Carnations: A symbol of luck and purity, and a wonderful addition to home decor
Reorganize Your Bedroom
When most people think about reorganizing their homes, one of their first thoughts is their closet and wardrobe. While you spring clean, take this opportunity to empty your entire closet and give it the deep dusting and vacuuming it needs. Since you’ll be thoughtfully putting each item back where it belongs one-by-one, you’ll have the opportunity to ask yourself, “do I really need this, have I used this recently, and is this something I still want?”
Reorganize with Flowers
Some of our favorite flowers that “spark joy” also happen to be great to add to your bedroom decor after a nice spring clean or reorganization. Take a look at fresh spring flowers that bring joy and cheer as well as make your bedroom a relaxing oasis, perfect for recharging after a long day.

Refine Your Kitchen
Spruce up your kitchen by adding pops of color and displaying seasonal tea towels, canisters, and other odds and ends that speak to you. Sheer curtains and valances help you add a soft personal flare while allowing the bright natural light to shine through. You can also set and stage your table for your favorite meal. Use your favorite dishes, linen napkins, and flatware that you may not get to admire very often.
Refine with Flowers
Fresh florals are also a wonderful addition to help refine any kitchen. Find your favorite spring flowers to add another touch of personality, extra pop of color, and beautiful scents. Place these flowers on your windowsill, on your counter, or in the center of your kitchen table for a touch of elegance.
- Peonies: Add a hint of grace to your kitchen
- Sweet Peas: Symbolize gratitude and pleasure
- Hydrangea: Perfect blooms proven to help you relax and feel calm as well as lift your mood
- Orchids: A symbol of refinement
Spring flowers are the best way to welcome this new season of warmth and sunshine. Whether you are in the market for fresh blooms to refine your decor or a sweet-smelling arrangement to refresh your space, Al’s Florist has you covered.
