Sunny Sunflower Decor

Sunflowers are native to the Americas and were actually seen as far back as 2600 B.C. in what is now present day Mexico. The name was derived from the sunflower's very obvious, bright yellow flower that resembles our very own sun. In the 16th century, seeds were brought to Europe and the use of sunflower oil became quite common in cooking; a technique that of course is still widely used today. Traditionally, the Native Americans would line the edges of their field with sunflowers as a way to "guard" their other three precious crops of the time: beans, corn and squash. In addition to the use of sunflower oil, which is extracted from the seeds, the seeds themselves have become a popular snack, although our favorite use is incorporating these flowers into country home accents.

Sunflower Check Collection

Sunflower and Checks

Two of our favorite country motifs are paired in our Sunflower Check Collection, including coordinating tiers and a valance for enhancing the look of you country kitchen, living room or breakfast nook. The tiers are decorated in classic black and tan checks that carry upwards to the valance. Five pairs of sunflowers add sunny charm atop a black edge which emanates throughout a room. Hang all pieces or use just the valance as an individual country window accent. 

Also in this collection is a complementing round tablemat for creating a sunny tablescape. Each sunflower on the tablemat features a brown button in the center, adding homemade appeal to your charming country table.

Sunshine for Your Walls

As you can see on the above valance and collection, sunflowers come in all shapes and sizes. If you're looking for the perfect way to accent a blank wall this season, consider a sunflower themed print or decorative wreath. Sunflowers Print shows a field of sunflowers up close, backed by a rustic barn that adds nostalgic charm to any wall. There's no denying that our Triple Sunflower Wreath will make you smile every time you see it. Offering rustic country appeal, Sunflower Canvas Print is made in Maine. Any of these options will do wonders for your sunflower themed decor in any room.
