I've been itching to add some pops of color and springy accents to our house ever since the snow started melting and the weather has been just a tad warmer!
I'll be honest, each year after packing all of Christmas away, I always need several weeks of clear surfaces and simplicity before I get the bug to really decorate again. While I did decorate just a tad for Valentine's Day, it was fairly short-lived, and that, too, has been put away for a while now.
Finally, with the onset of Spring, I had a few spring items that I've been slowly taking out and finding a space for. This weekend, I decided to head to our craft store to pick out some florals to brighten things up a bit.
I usually like to add a few pieces to my grandparents' hutch base, which lives in our dining room, and then to the shelves and dvd/PS3/board game bureau in the living room. Using some pretty faux flowers is an easy way to add lots of color and texture to a space.
The baby's breath are dried and leftover from my Valentine's Day roses from Rich. I love baby's breath, and knew I wanted to save the sprigs for an arrangement of some kind. I love these blue and white floral sprays with themin the clear vase. I will likely eventually cut the stems, but I wanted to try them in this vase before permanently altering them.
Remember the aqua pitcher I found last weekend? I added a few different types of flowers to that, as well. I loved these hot pink ranunculus, white spray flowers, and bright yellow forsythia.
How have you decorated for spring? I would love to see your ideas! Have a great week!
