Although I tried to keep my winter decorations neutral, I was extremely happy to change the decor for the spring season. Just as the blooming flowers in my yard make me happy, so do the small changes of color inside.
Today I wanted to provide a short Spring Decorations Tour.
A new season means a new door wreath. As I always try to repurpose my supplies, I built this on an esxixiting grapevine wreath. The green mesh was actually purchased several years ago at Christmas time but I felt like it was great to use for springtime. I already had the white ribbon for the bow. As most of my flowers were beginning to show their age, all of the flowers were purchased new at Hobby Lobby and a great local design store in Lexington called House. (seriously, if you live in Central Kentucky and haven’t been there yet, you need to go NOW)
Although I have ambition to create a wreath for the mirror in the entry way, I haven’t been able to do so at this time. Thus, I am keeping it simple in the entryway with a display of Easter Eggs and greenery. I will change out the eggs after Easter but for right now I am in love with them! (PS, these were not expensive and were purchased at Target over the last two Springs.)
I continued to keep things simple in the dining room with more greenery and a beautiful bird’s nest I placed on display.
More greenery and eggs for the buffet table.
Another cute bird’s nest resting in forsythia for the living room coffee table.
As can be found in most homes, our family room focuses around the TV over the mantle. We joke about getting a larger TV but James has reminded me that if he does get a bigger one, I would not be able to decorate on the mantle. (He knows me and don’t need a larger tv.) For Spring I always place more forsythia as it symbolizes the season for me.
The other new purchase for the Spring was this fun table runner from HomeGoods for our kitchen table. I debated between this with the applique flowers or something solid and truly couldn’t pass this up. I’m just hoping our cat Sam doesn’t try to pull them off.
And finally, I couldn’t pass up Trader Joe’s great prices on flowers last week. It has been almost a week and they continue to look pretty.
Regardless of the size home James and I have lived in, from our first one bedroom apartment to our current home, I have always tried to change the decorations for the season. Small changes can and do make a difference in your surroundings and it is so important to love where you are. Each morning I am grateful for what James and I have.
Today I’m linking up with Emily for Grateful Heart Monday. As you start your week, take a few minutes to acknowledge what you are grateful to have in your life.
Have you decorated for Spring?
