Wine Cellar Inspirations: Bring Spring Into Your Wine Cellars

April 19th, 2017

Sunnier skies and occasional April showers are definitely indicators that Spring is here and will be here to stay. So why not bring Spring into your wine cellars as well! We have some pretty sweet decorating ideas we’d love to share with you. From your wine bottles down to your wine racks and tasting tables, it’s time to bloom and bring on the colors:

Bright and easy with recycled wine bottles!

For sure, you’ll have lots of empty wine bottles lying about. Don’t chuck them out just yet because they will make for some fabulous decor for your wine cellar, as well as your dining, kitchen, and even the living area. Choose a couple of bottles that are transparent enough. To make it more fun, make sure they’re of different heights and/or sizes. Now with the help of some food coloring, fill those bottles with water tinted to match the colors of the blooms you’ll be putting into them. We recommend white blooms because you’ll be in for a nice surprise – the petals will take on the hues of the tinted water. You can certainly say that “Spring has sprung” in your home!

Stock up on succulents!

Succulent plants, or also known as just succulents, are actually “water storage” plants. These are plants that have some parts that are more than normally thickened and fleshy, usually to retain water in arid climates or soil conditions. While you do need to give them enough sunshine, succulents actually thrive well indoors. If your wine cellar has windows, you can definitely bring a little bit of Spring inside with these miniature green delights. We suggest putting them in tiny clay pots or if you want to be more creative, in DIY vases made from ceramic or tin. Succulents do not actually take too well to being grown in glass containers.

Go funky with wine box/crate displays!

Just as you’re going to have empty wine bottles, you’ll definitely have empty wine boxes or crates. Keep them and transform them into colorful accents in your home and wine cellar. These boxes or crates will make for great centerpieces, too. Line the insides properly so they won’t leak and fill them with soil and decorative stones. This will make it easy for you to arrange vibrant bouquets in them. You can also put in twigs and other decorative branches or even incorporate edible elements such as asparagus stalks, coriander, radishes, and more. Let your imagination guide you and bring in the shades of Spring as you go along!
