Today is the first day of Spring and what better way to welcome the season of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection, and regrowth than with a few Spring Updates around the house!
I try to keep a vase of fresh flowers in my home year round but spring is definitely the season to brighten your home with the colors, textures and scent of a fresh bouquet. While I’m not big on decorating for Easter, I do love the idea of mixing a few Easter eggs in with flowers to celebrate the holiday and put a spin on an ordinary flower arrangement.
Forsythia or cherry blossom branches are one of my favorite natural elements to decorate with. Branches placed in glass jars or even vintage rubber boots can be a fun addition to your spring mantle, tabletop or entryway.
Springtime means more sunlight and longer days. A quick way to freshen up your décor for the season is with spring inspired pillows. Bring the colors of nature inside with brighter colors, vibrant patterns and floral images.
The color yellow is a definite sign of spring and the sunnier days ahead. Lemons places in a jar will brighten your kitchen and can be used to decorate a bookshelf, windowsill or dining table. Combine green apples with oranges and lemons for even more vibrancy.
What better way to welcome spring then with fresh front door décor. Try replacing a traditional wreath with a basket of natural elements to say WELCOME spring.
I know it will be a bit longer before I can run through the grass with bare feet or go on a picnic but I’m excited that spring is officially here!

Is your front door simple and refined, bold and bodacious or rustic and regal? Paint it, stain it, dress it up, dress it down…whatever you do with your front door, make sure it says Welcome, One and All!
