I was able to pull off a Spring update in just a few hours using the same simple steps I use no matter what the season. By following these tips, you won’t have to spend days decorating. A few well placed items in key places in our homes is all we need.
Try these 3 ideas for easy stress-free decorating:
1. Flowers– There is nothing that shouts Spring more than flowers! They can be fresh or not. This year, I will be gone for Spring Break and don’t want flowers dying from lack of water so I purchased some silk tulips. I happened to be walking by Pottery Barn after leaving my class at the Apple store, and saw them in the window. I thought, perfect! I placed them in a white container in my foyer, usually reserved for fresh plants, like mums or hydrangeas. While not fresh, they still feel like Spring! An added bonus is that I can use them year after year.
2. Centerpiece for Table–A couple of years ago I invested in these neat looking vintage glass jars from Blue Ocean Traders. Each season, I place them on my dining room table and fill them with different seasonal decor I find: pinecones, moss, stones, beans, gourds, etc. For Spring I chose colorful eggs nestled in pretty green moss. Again, by purchasing a few key anchor pieces like jars and vases, you only need to purchase the accessories to place in them each season.
3. Treats– I alway have little seasonal treats in a candy dish on my foyer table. Candycorn, robin eggs, chocolates. They don’t last long, and have to be refilled often; illustrating that everyone likes a little treat when arriving or leaving. Its small and easy gesture that everyone appreciates!
