Invite some friends over for a casual dinner, brunch or lunch and create your own spring nirvana.
Here are some ideas for easy spring decorating with blossoms and blooms:
• Tulips – bring in a few bouquets, spread them around the house and, feel that warm glow of spring already throughout your home.
• Lilacs – also another harbinger of spring. A few bouquets will make your house smell like Mother Nature herself waved her magic wand and welcomed spring inside. I absolutely love lilacs and their gorgeous scent.
• Wild pops of color – bright, cheerful colors like hot pink, salmon, bright purple, sunshine yellow, grass green and robin’s egg blue all shout, “Spring is here. Celebrate!” Hyacinths are a great way to bring these colors indoors. Beware, the scent can be a bit strong, though, so steer away from placing them near food.
• Pussy willows or blossoming branches – fill a tall vase with a few branches and you not only have a striking centerpiece, but you’ve also created a little corner of outdoorsy bliss in your home.
