Sweet Springtime

 

Decorating for springtime has a certain softness - a sweetness in the colors and the use of bunnies and such. While I have some traditional Easter decorations that we will enjoy during the holiday, there are a few favorites that will stay in place and help make a sweet transition from the early days of spring to summer.

This wicker and wire basket sits on my kitchen table creating a simple statement with flowers and a cute burlap bunny. The burlap table runner I made in the fall, works well with the natural elements of my spring decor. I will eventually change the flowers to tulips or daffodils, creating even more of a spring feel. The bunny has the whimsical touch I like in my decorating style.

Another burlap bunny hangs on a hook in my foyer and also combines whimsy and natural elements.

The twine wrapped eggs are a favorite DIY project and I love the colors and textures, combined with the rustic grapevine wreath. These eggs are such a sweet spring element and are a great way to up cycle plastic Easter eggs. Look here for instructions on making them.

A plump, concrete bunny that usually lives outside, will spend these early spring days on my kitchen windowsill. As the weather warms, it will make the transition back to the garden.

Natural elements and soft colors will help usher in spring as we finally begin to see the green growth and feel the warmth of the new season.

Have a great day!
