I love decorating for spring! It’s such a beautiful season brimming with hope and new possibilities.
With the bright sunshine, new buds on the trees, and new flowers, it brings such respite after a long winter. For me, spring is an opportunity for refreshment, especially in my home. Today I will be sharing how my home is refreshed and decorated for spring and I hope it will be an inspiration for you!
Decorating for Spring with Faux Flower Stems
Being drawn to the color yellow this season, I spent hours and hours looking online at all different types of faux yellow flowers. The stems had to be super simple, not too yellow, and needed them to pair nicely with the green stems that I already had, all without looking too fake. I finally settled on these small, ball- like flower stems for the simplicity of them and I’m super happy with that choice! I’ve found that, in choosing smaller types of faux stems or flowers, it gives you a clean, beautiful display without looking fake. You can find similar ones here.
To style them, I cut off each individual flower stem from the main stem using my floral cutters and placed them in vases around my home, incorporating them with the faux eucalyptus greenery that was already in them. I played around with them until they looked pleasing to me. There is just something about the texture of the yellow stems that adds such a warm, welcoming feel and pairs so nicely with the green. You can find similar faux greenery here. Lastly, I wanted to tie in some of the flowers that I used on my DIY spring wreath to another part of my home, so I stuck 3 of those floral stems in a vintage green vase on top of the fireplace mantel. Faux stems, when chosen with care, add beautiful texture to your home and are so versatile, especially when decorating for spring!
Decorating for Spring with Ribbon
I’ve never actually used ribbon as decor in my home, but I saw this ribbon at JoAnn’s, linked here, and just thought it was so pretty! I didn’t quite know what I was going to do with it when I bought it but I didn’t care, it was just too pretty. Playing around with it in a few spots, I ended up wrapping some around the wreath on my front door and used the rest as a pretty accent tied on a wall vase that hangs in my kitchen.I also picked up a bold yellow ribbon for my DIY spring wreath that I created and you can find that link above. Ribbon is a subtle yet creative way to add spring touches to your home!
Decorating for Spring with Fresh Flowers
Fresh flowers are my favorite way to introduce spring into my home! The bright colors and the fresh scent of them is enough to brighten anyone’s day. Apparently I’m craving simplicity this spring because this year I was drawn to tulips. Tulips are so beautiful. They have such clean lines and a smoothness to them that creates this stunning, effortless effect. I have the bouquet all grouped as one. It is also fun to split the flowers up into smaller groupings and place them in ball jars around other parts of the house for a cohesive look.
Decorating for Spring with Vintage Linens
I plan to do a full blog post about this category soon but I’ve recently really gotten into vintage linens. The items I have found recently include cloth napkins, hand towels, dresser linens, and tablecloths. All of them are perfect for spring!
Most of the linens have beautiful stitched flowers or vintage spring-like prints on them. This is such a simple and inexpensive way to incorporate spring into your home. You can use them in every room of your house, making your home feel compatible.
There is a beautiful vintage tablecloth on my dining table. My antique cheese box holds all of the cloth napkins yet am using the vintage hand towels in my bathroom and the dresser linens in my bedroom! Each piece is unique, feminine, and intricate yet they all blend so nicely together.
You can use this same method for different seasons or times of the year but I am just loving it for spring. The white linen is so fresh and clean!
Simplicity. Refreshment. Renewal.
I hope you are eager to incorporate those aspects into your home, and soul, this spring season. It doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive to decorate your house for spring. Allow your creativity to lead you and your home will blossom.
