Snowdrop Home Accessories and Decor To Add Cheer

There’s something so cheering about snowdrop flowers – they’re usually the first flowers to emerge after the long winter, and we’re very glad to see them! Depending on the weather and the variety snowdrops normally flower between January and March, with white nodding flowers appearing on a single stem and green elegant leaves around the base. Snowdrop plants often grow in clumps, producing a wonderful display of flowers as they bloom. The love of snowdrops has seen gardens full of snowdrops or snowdrop valleys becoming increasingly popular for snowdrop walks

These delicate white flowers symbolise purity, innocence, new beginnings, hope and rebirth – not bad for such a small flower! They’re also a vital food resource for insects coming out of the hard winter. In the past, it was traditional for village maidens to pick bunches of snowdrops and wear them as a symbol of purity on February 2nd, the feast of the Virgin Mary or Candlemas. 

Snowdrops still carry great value today, with so many people loving the look of these wonderful flowers. The good news is that if you don’t live anywhere near a snowdrop field, then you can still enjoy this pretty, delicate flower in your home. We’ve tracked down the top snowdrop accessories for home lovers, from handmade pieces from small businesses and independent artists, to well known brands, so you can enhance your cosy home decor this spring with snowdrop designs that complements any interior.
