Welcoming Spring With Farmhouse Florals

| | |

Once winter is over there is nothing better than welcoming in spring with some pretty farmhouse florals!
Bring In Spring With Farmhouse Florals graphic.

Oh, winter – when will you ever end???  There are things that I like about winter, such as a cozy home or enjoying an intimate meal for two by the fire, but I am always, always ready for it to be over!  Enough about that – let’s talk about spring!   😀

For this week’s edition of The Best Of Worthing Court, I’m taking a look back at the simple ways that I brought spring to Worthing Court last year by sprinkling pretty farmhouse style florals and faux greenery throughout my home.  So easy to do and I hope you will be inspired!

No matter what the weather may be throwing at us, I am d-o-n-e with winter.  I’m ignoring the cold, gloomy, gray and dreary days outdoors and am gettin’ my spring on!  I starting out in my farmhouse breakfast area, where the sun finally came out today and was pouring into the room.  Such a treat after all of the gloom and rain.

A wooden dining room table with purple flowers on it.

 

I didn’t want to go overboard with adding flowers, so I just put a few small touches here and there – just enough to say ‘Welcome Spring!’.  I’m notorious for not keeping up with the water for fresh flowers, so faux flowers it is for me.

My kitchen table centerpiece has only one small grouping of purple flowers in it, but there are plenty of other elements that speak to spring too.  If you follow me on Instagram (I’d love to have you join me – you can do that HERE), you already gotten a peek of it.

Simple sprigs of dollar store flowers fill three glass jars.  The grouping is made a little more noticeable by tying the bottles together with a bit of colored twine.  That little white bird looks like he photo bombed my picture!

I picked up several of these cute little wooden birdhouses at Michael’s the other day for only $1.  I left them unpainted because I really like the natural color of the wood.

The other end of the centerpiece is filled out with another Michael’s purchase – a terrarium filled with faux grass and some eggs.  After all, Easter is just around the corner, ya know.

A wooden lamp with a nest of eggs in it.

I know that putting together a centerpiece can seem intimidating sometimes.  My best suggestion is to wait until you’re in the right frame of mind, pull out all of your stuff, dive right in and play away!  I wound up using only a small fraction of the stuff that I actually pulled out of my stash.

All the spring items on a wicker tray in the middle of the table.

Over on the open shelves, I only switched out a few of the items to give them some spring fling.

I took it easy on the florals on the shelves too, so as not to overdo a good thing.  A couple of bunches of sweet daffodils from the dollar store fill a little country pitcher.  The stacked black and white plates and bowls (from the dollar store) remained.  An added easel chalkboard with a clip-on flower completes this spot.

The other end of the sideboard/dresser/linen storage is still sporting my little lamp that stays on 24/7. But, I added cute letter blocks (another Michael’s purchase) to spell out BLOOM, and a bowl of faux grass sporting more wooden eggs.  One more of the little birdhouses made its way to the shelves too.

Wooden blocks that spell out bloom.

I kept the reproduction toolbox in its spot, but I switched out a few of the plates, added a few blue touches and a mason jar filled with, you guessed it, more dollar store faux flowers.

Thank you for stopping by my farmhouse kitchen today!  Have you started decorating for spring?

  1. I’m ready for Spring also! Although, it’s been a VERY mild Winter so far. Maybe that’s the problem!!! But, I’m gathering my thoughts for Spring decor, and LOVE all that you do. I do not have a farmhouse-style home, but these ideas transcend design “boxes.” Thanks!

  2. Hi Suzy, no I have not started decorating for spring yet….but you sure have inspired me this morning! I have that same terrarium from Michaels – love it!

  3. The touches of spring that you added look so pretty! It’s starting to feel a bit like spring here but I know that Old Man Winter has at least a month left to show us he’s still in charge.

  4. Anne Marie says:

  14. I’ve followed you for a time and I love how you take the same shelves and buffet and keep lots of the same items on them but change them out each season/holiday to such cute and inspiring ideas! It makes me want to do the same thing.

    Love your tablescape! I wish we had a Michael’s near our home— the closest is in Memphis, almost 2 hours away. Love your ideas.

  20. I do love farmhouse decor. It feels so homey to me and my family. You have great taste and offer wonderful very doable suggestions. Thanks

  21. It’s still dark and dreary here in Michigan. I would love to get my Spring décor out and play but feel like it’s a bit early here to do that. It’s still snowy and cold here. So I’ll just enjoy yours until the time is right here – I hope it hurries! I want Spring!

  22. Carol Elkins says:

  27. I’m with you, bring on spring. This will be our 3rd sunny day, and I’m enjoying it. But then I see rain in the forecast for he next week.

  28. Pam Ballard says:

    Oh my love the toolbox idea. I have one and think I will add it to my table. I am hosting a party Friday night which always gives me the incentive to change things up. Thanks for the inspiration. Have a great day.

  29. A trip to Michaels got me started on my spring decorating, especially with 50% off faux greenery and flowers. I loved your bloom blocks – and found some blank ones at Michaels and made myself a set, wonderful idea!

  30. I am working on changing my decor to spring today! We are supposed to have record warm temps here in Wisconsin this weekend and I am so ready for spring to come. It is really nice that you have so many affordable decor ideas for those of us with not a lot of money to spend. Thanks!

  31. Mildred Hoppe says:

    Your shelves and table centerpiece are Inspirational!!!
    So ready for Spring :+)

  32. Hi Suzy. I really like the little wood bird houses. I’ll have to take a trip to michaels! Did you make your toolbox? Just wondering if you had a tutorial? Thanks for all your great ideas!

    1. Hi Janet. No, I didn’t make my toolbox. I think that I found it at HomeGoods a while back. 😀

  33. I never noticed your thermostat in your pics until today! Too funny… you do a really good job of making it *not* noticeable. 🙂 Love all the ideas. I need to change up my shelves, too. May need to make a visit to the Dollar Store soon!

  34. Sue A Stevens says:

    So ready for Spring!! However, we seem to be having a little early spring weather around here. To be 75 degrees on Sunday!! Great inspiration!!

  35. I am ready for Spring!

  36. Martha Miller says:

    Love your Spring Floral ideas!

  37. mattsgramma says:

    Love how you’ve changed things up to welcome Spring. Where did you find the scrabble piece “BLOOM”? So cute!

    1. I found those lettered blocks at Michael’s and just chose what I needed to spell BLOOM. You can purchase plain wood blocks and some stick on letters, if you’d like to make a set for yourself. 😀

  38. Leslie Watkins says:

    I’m doing the very same thing! I’m counting down the days until March 1st when I feel I can legally add the spring flowers to the mix…the forsythia, tulips and daffodils with bunnies and more nests! Already gathering things! Thank you for your wonderful groupings. Always inspires!

  39. Pam Cates says:

    So longing for Spring in Oklahoma! Wonderful centerpeiece! I’m going to get started on Spring now and to heck with the calendar!

  40. Really pretty! I’m so done with winter and I too have spring fever! 🙂

  41. So very pretty, all of it! I love that little wood lamp, so natural looking, and the small boxwood wreath is perfect!

    Have a nice day!
    Cathy

  42. I’m ready for spring too! All of the warmer days between the colder ones have made me ready for Winter to end! You last post about greenery in every room inspired me and I pulled out all of my spring arrangements! Let Spring begin!

  43. I am right there with ya about being so done with Winter!! I was ready to bring out my spring & Easter decor a couple of weeks ago. And I would’ve if I didn’t decorate for Valentine’s Day!!I’m always thankful for your tips!!!

  44. Your table centerpiece is so pretty. I especially like the terrarium that you bought which I guess is because I have one at home which is very similar. I really like the white plates with the scalloped edges too. They look just like real doilies in the pictures.

  45. Your blog post was full of great and inexpensive ideas–I came away with a bunch of things I want to do in our house. I got some faux greenery at Michael’s also and am looking forward to getting some spring vignettes put together. Thanks for your post!

  46. Dianne Lanier says:

    Beautiful centerpiece! Can hardly wait to make a trip to Michael’s!!!

  47. I have reproduced your center piece but can not find the tray. Do you have information of it.

    1. Hi Charlene. I found my tray a couple of years ago at a local home decor store. For reference, mine is 36″ long x 12″ wide. Here are links to some, that are long and narrow like mine, that I wouldn’t hesitate to use: http://bit.ly/2kUjEfZ OR http://bit.ly/2lVY3Ij OR http://bit.ly/2lVNViO OR http://fave.co/2l6Z8eX . Check the measurements on these as they may not be exactly the same size as mine. You could even think outside of the box and use a boot tray like the one at this link: http://rstyle.me/n/cfm5uib7z57 . The liner is removable, which leaves the tray looking a whole lot like the long galvanized metal tray that I’ve used for centerpieces on my table too. Hope this helps!

  48. Gorgeous Ideas for Spring decor. We are going into autumn in Australia although it is usually very mild where I live. Thanks for sharing with us at #OvertheMoon Link UP and have a lovely day.

  49. Love all your decorations…done so well! Come on Spring!

  50. Sandra Barnhart says:

    We’ve been having warm temperatures here in Iowa the last 2 weeks now it really makes you want to put out the spring things. Especially when you’re looking here or at pinterest. Love your ideas.

  51. Just the right touch! The pink pops in the room. Love the inspiration.

  52. Loving your touches of Spring Suzy! Your dining room looks wonderful as always!

  53. My buffet is my go-to for seasonal decorating. I love your ideas and will work them in this spring!

  54. Olivia- Reinvented Collection says:

    I love your bright pops of color against the neutrals. It’s a favorite look! I’m running behind today but I want you to know that my features for Thursday Favorite Things will be up shortly. Your blog is one of them.

    Thank you for sharing with us so often. It’s truly a pleasure.

  55. I love your little touches of Spring. The faux flowers are fine. You have used them artfully and they provide a bit of color in your decor. Color as opposed to grey, grey, grey! I live in mid-Michigan and our city is one of the cloudiest in the whole U.S. It really wears on you.

    I also really like the wreath around the pig’s neck above the shelves. I love pigs! They are just the most amazingly smart animals with such an interesting physical appearance. I have heard that they make wonderfully loving and loyal pets! My house is too small for a pig, though!

    The other thing I like is the reproduction tool box. Mind if I ask where you found it?

    Nice post! Keep thinking SPRING!!

    1. Hi Naomi. I found the reproduction toolbox at HomeGoods a few years ago.

  56. Thanks Suzy! Slim chance they have it this much later but you never know! It’s a good starting place anyway. Looking forward to your next post!

  57. Yesterday in the midst of a snow flurry in noticed our little purple hyacinths and the white magnolia popping out. It’s spring!
    Now to bring it out inside too. Love winter coziness but it is time to move on! Thanks for all your inspiration!

  58. We had 8″ of snow yesterday but I am all decorated for Soring. I really like the little birdhouses… another trip to Michaels ! Thank You for sharing.

  59. Decorating for Spring is almost as refreshing and fun as getting ready for Christmas. Love your style!
    Have a lovely day!
    🙂 Jo

  60. Love your Blog, and your Style… perfect touches thank you, Pinning is a must!

    1. Thank you so much! 😀

  61. Gail Gardner says:

    Who isn’t ready to put ol’ man winter aside? You’ve certainly inspired me! I’m sorting through what I have and will add a few new touches to freshen my home decor and welcome spring. Thank you, Suzy!!

    1. Glad you found some inspiration. Happy Spring!
