The start of spring always inspires us to get outside in the garden, or bring some greenery into our homes. So with spring well and truly here, today we're sharing some of our favourite botanical inspired pieces from The Wedding Shop. When compiling your gift list, it's always a good idea to look to the seasons to see what home and lifestyle pieces you'll need in your new lives together and the spring is such a fun season to draw inspiration from. Vibrant colours, new beginnings, sunshine and warmth...what's not to love?

{Artwork & Books To Inspire}

For pieces that will brighten your home all year round, The Wedding Shop have a gorgeous selection of artwork you can add to your wedding gift list. Guests love an item like this too, as they can club together and invest in something truly special. If you're lacking in the green finger department, or would like a little inspiration on the styling front, The Wedding Shop also have a great range of coffee table books about using greenery in your home. And if you're anything like me, then you'll need the self watering pots from Eva Solo. Perfect for people who love plants, but aren't so great at looking after them ;)

{Greenery For Your Home}

It's well known that having plants in your home is good for your mood and well being. For starters they help keep your home filled with fresh oxygen, as well as looking lovely and filling spaces with vibrant colour. If you're going to display plants and flowers in your home, then you'll need some planters and plant pots on your wedding gift list. Luckily for us, The Wedding Shop always have the best pick of brands out there, with on-trend geometrics, classic design favourites and lots of vessels and vases too.

{For Your Garden}

Make the most of your outdoor space with pieces from The Garden Trading Company. One of my favourite British lifestyle brands, they make classic, heritage products that are perfect for making the most of the great outdoors. The Wedding Shop have a host of Garden Trading Co's practical and pretty pieces to chose from, I'm sure you'll find lots of essential additions to your wedding gift list.

{Subscriptions & Experiences}

If you prefer the hard work to be done for you - then you must check out the experiences guests can buy for you via your wedding gift list with The Wedding Shop. A private tour of Kew Gardens, the world's most famous collection of plant life, followed by dinner at the nearby Michelin star restaurant, The Glasshouse. This would be such a treat to look forward to after the wedding. And for a gift that keeps on giving, you can add a Bloom & Wild subscription to your wedding list, a monthly delivery of fresh flowers is sure to beat the post wedding blues and allows you to unleash your inner florist and arrange your stems in a beautiful vase.

{Floral Fancy}

If all this greenery leaves you wanting some colour, then worry not, The Wedding Shop have some bright and bold brands too. I'm a huge lover of floral fabrics, especially for bedding - they just make a room look so fresh and inviting. Bluebellgray have a stunning range available at The Wedding Shop and the bold brush strokes give them a contemporary feel that's not overly feminine. Sara Miller's bold teal and hot pink range is so striking, but the delicate botanical and bird illustrations mean the range feels really pretty. Perfect for hosting afternoon tea for friends.
The Wedding Shop are our exclusive gift list partner and we'd highly recommend them for your wedding gift list. For more inspiration, please visit The Wedding Shop portal here on RMW. Or to get your wedding gift list started, head straight to The Wedding Shop website.
