I was invited to my first press event as a blogger last week, which is a pretty big deal to me, since I haven’t even been blogging a year. Another reason I consider it a big deal is that it was for Homegoods, a home and garden store with a huge social media following, who reached out to me, a little urban garden blogger, to tour one of their new stores before it opens to the public. After seeing all their spring gardening goodies, I was inspired to write this post about spring urban gardening decor ideas.
A few weeks ago, I spent an entire Saturday afternoon looking up public relation sites for influencers to join and joined as many as possible. I also have a contact page, so that anyone, including companies, can contact me for collaborations.
I was, and still am, blown away that Homegoods contacted me due to my small size. So, for any of you bloggers that don’t think you can reach out to companies or work with companies because you have a small following, I did and so can you!
For the past month or so, I have been getting emails from companies and public relations reps, asking me to review their products. So far, I have gotten a gardening book, silk flowers, a cute outdoors hat, and the Homegoods tour from collaborations. Again, check out my following numbers on all my social media profiles. I’m not huge, but steadily growing, thanks to all of you!
Urban Gardening Decor
I will be pointing out decor ideas for urban gardening, but these ideas can be enjoyed in a garden of any size and in any location. There are a plethora of outdoor pillows, chairs, tables, pottery, and other beautiful accessories and decorations that would go great in any size spring garden. I love color and this is a great time of year to add color to your garden!

I love pottery since I get to place all my plants in a container and there are so many to choose from! There is plastic, terra cotta, ceramics, and more to choose from. Pottery is also great because you can get them in so many sizes. Know your budget before shopping for pottery.
Something else to consider is how large a space you have and how big of a plant you want to place in your container. These choices can all help you decide what type of pot to get when you are thinking of ideas to add to your garden.

I love colorful things, so I snagged these this weekend at the local HomeGoods in town. They are ceramic pots imported from Mexico. I was looking for pottery small enough for our balcony and these were the perfect size!
I will be adding dirt and seeds to both this week. Can’t wait to see plants grow in these beautiful pieces of art! They would also make great succulent containers. Here they are:
For those with the space, there are many types of outdoor furniture items available in many places this time of year. Benches, couches, chairs, and tables can be added to create a great gathering place when friends and family are over. If you love reading while surrounded by nature, relaxing on a couch while enjoying your garden and the sounds of nature is the perfect way to do so.
You can also add color to your outdoor furniture with pillows. Outdoor pillows come in all kinds of colors, styles, sizes, shapes, and designs! Once we have a bigger yard, I want to add furniture, and of course, pillows!
Statues and Figurines
Statues and figurines can also add an artsy feel to your garden. I have a small rock that says “garden” on it, and besides the new ceramic pots I just purchased, there isn’t much room for anything else.
Statues, figurines, and even decorative benches and fountains can add style and serenity to your outdoor space. If you have the space, do some research on what you want, and add some beautiful outdoor decor to your garden!
What are you going to add to your garden this spring? I hope this blog post gave you some spring urban gardening decor ideas. Let me know your thoughts in the comments section below.
Happy spring garden decorating!
