I always have a little extra spring my step and a little more pep in my attitude this time of year. The looong gray days of winter are coming to an end and spring is on the horizon! Just like many of you, I yearn for spring and that means one thing – spring decorating! I’m kidding – sort of. I’ve had spring decorating on the brain this whole month!
Once the weather turns warm, I don’t want to be stuck inside putting a lot of complicated and time consuming decorations together though. So here are six quick and simple ways that you can welcome spring into your home that will leave you with plenty of time leftover to get outside and enjoy the weather!
MAKE A SPRING WREATH
This cutie was made with a grapevine wreath, some hot glue and seed packets and gardening gloves from the dollar store.
PULL OUT YOUR COLORFUL DISHES
These colorful stacked dishes are part of a tablescape that I put together, especially for spring, in the kitchen of my former home. You don’t necessarily have to set a whole table – we’re trying to keep things quick and simple today, remember? You could do something as simple as pulling out a colorful container for displaying fresh fruit on your counter!
VISIT THE FLORAL DEPARTMENT OF YOUR GROCERY STORE
Three inexpensive pots from the floral department of my local grocery store inspired this spring vignette, located on the island in the kitchen of our former home. How could I say “no” to those sweet faces??? I simply placed them into a wooden box and filled in the empty spots with some Spanish moss.
REMOVE THOSE HEAVY WINTER THROWS
Whether you display your winter throws on a blanket ladder or simply keep them draped over a chair, now is the time to replace them with their lighter and brighter cousins! And while you’re at it, bring in some lighter throw pillows too.
BRING IN MORE GREEN
You’ve heard of “more cowbell”, right? No? Well…Google “too much cowbell” to see the hilarious skit on Saturday Night Live circa the year 2000. You can never have too much cowbell, nor can you have too much greenery when it comes to spring!
CREATE A SPRING CENTERPIECE
This centerpiece may look a bit complicated, but it isn’t – not at all. Raid your spring stash, pull out everything that you love and arrange it on a tray or in a basket. I’ll admit though – I have to be in the proper mood for centerpieces or else they wind up just looking like a bunch of stuff thrown together in the middle of the table. 😀
