As the days start to get longer and warmer, it is natural our thoughts turn to spring. You can hurry it along indoors by bringing in some fun decorating elements. So even if your neck of the woods is still buried in snow, you can enjoy warmer thoughts with a few easy ideas.
Dogwood branches, especially pink, are a sure sign of spring. Purchase a few silk branches and artfully arrange them (interpret as stuff however you like) in a tall white vase. Set this in an entry, on a counter or anywhere you want to add an airy feel of spring.
Grass is definitely a symbol of spring. Those first green shoots poking their head above ground are always a welcome sight at our house. Create your own green oasis using bunches of fake grass. You can leave stems long and drape out of vase or use short pieces to cover a piece of styrofoam (whatever pattern you choose – could be oval, rectangle, square). Cover the outside and top completely with the grass and then tie a cheery ribbon around it. Set on a footed tray (a cake plate would be ideal) and enjoy.
Decorate with flower blossoms. Every time I go to the craft store, I am amazed at the new items available using floral blossoms. Choose a bright color like hot pink, citrus, apple green or robin’s egg blue or a few new throw pillows. Tack on a few flower petals in coordinating colors for both a unique and fun accent in your home. You can also use magnetic blossoms to brighten up a variety of areas in your home. Attach to a bathroom mirror, hang a metal tray covered in blossoms, leave a few on your fridge door.
Color is a must for spring. Think of colors that make you smile. Is it a sunny yellow, bright fuchsia or a gorgeous green? Find ways to easily incorporate those colors into your home decor through pillows, table runners or centerpieces.
Have fun with your decorating and remember the only limitation is your imagination!
