Easy ways to decorate for Spring

We are just 5 days shy of the first day of spring but inside it has officially sprung here at the cottage! If you are following along on the Spring Home Love blog hop you may have just landed here from Alma’s page. Wasn’t her home amazing, I love her clean and refreshing style. There are so many talented ladies in this blog hop, be sure to give them all a visit. I’ll list them at the end.

So, for spring I brought in a bit of color and lots of flowers. I changed out some pieces I already had and stayed away from the stores to the best of my ability so I wouldn’t buy anything new. We are going on vacation at the end of this week and I wanted to save all my pennies for that! Plus, I really didn’t need any more home decor. My basement already looks like a Home Goods. I did have a gift card to Williams Sonoma so I was able to purchase a few great items from there, all for $3.49! The only other things I purchased were fresh flowers… and a pretty new sugar bowl and creamer from Anthropologie, but that’s it! Pretty good, eh!?

Let’s start in the entryway. I call it that but it’s basically a door that enters into my living room. Whatever, let’s enter…

I am obsessed with these salt lamps. They are supposed to improve sleep and overall health. They send off a calming energy and I really enjoy it.

I filled this crate with moss and added a few faux eggs and flowers inside, super simple and now it’s spring ready!

Let’s head into the living room…

The wreath on the mantel is one of the items I got from Williams Sonoma. It’s the farmers’ market herb wreath and I am so in love with it.

It smells so good too! I purchased a larger one (with the same gift card) for my front porch, but it is still a tad too cold to put it out. Changing out wreaths is a really simple and effective way to change out seasonal decor. Another easy way to change out decor for seasons is throw blankets. I purchased all of my mud cloth pillows right after Christmas, so I wasn’t really ready to put them away yet. I decided to switch out some blankets instead and look how perfect this one is.

This was made by a close friend of my grandmothers and gifted to her on her wedding day back in 1957. I’m so honored to have it in my home now. I love sentimental pieces like this. It brings in the perfect amount of color for spring too!

Let’s head into the kitchen…

Normally I have antique pans hanging from my ceiling in here but I switched them out for some succulent filled atriums I had in another room. I’m loving the change. Also hanging is another item I got from William Sonoma. Do you see that Herbal Swag hanging? I can really use the herbs to cook, and since I’ve had it I’ve used it several times. It has lavender, oregano, sage, and rosemary. It’s so much fun, and I’m pretty sure I will always have some herbal swag hanging from my kitchen ceiling now.

Some springy doodles on the chalkboard and that’s about it for the kitchen. Let’s head into the dining room.

We recently added the shelves to the coffee bar, I love the storage it created. Before I had all of my canisters on that little counter.

My husband got the wood laying around at work, sanded and stained them then hung them all by himself. He’s so handy. I’m so thankful for that!  I added some spring greenery and some little forest friends to the shelves for spring. A little moss squirrel and the white bunny. I also added lavender to the top of my mug holder. I love lavender, and I love to bring it into my home whenever I can. It’s supposed to promote relaxation, I need all the calm I can get with my two little boys running around here all the time!

This is the pretty new sugar bowl and creamer I got from Anthropologie.

Aren’t they darling? These and the movie Moana inspired me for my spring decor this year. I wanted flowers and moss. If you’ve seen the movie Moana, you’ll know the Goddess island (Te Fiti) is covered in gorgeous moss with flowers, I adored it. Jeez, I’m such a mom, getting my inspo from Disney movies, but it worked! I’ll show you how that inspired me for my tablescape in a bit. For now, let’s take a quick look at my hutch.

On top is a wood serving tray decoupaged with pretty pastel flowers. I used this as a backdrop and then just added some moss bunnies a white lantern, blue birdcages, and a little wall hook. I never actually used it for a wall hook though, I always end up using it in vignettes.

More lavender in this olive bucket and a tea towel on the ladder, and that’s a wrap for this space. I love hanging tea towels from my vintage ladder. I continuously change them out each season. I purchased this one last Spring from Target.

After all that, are you ready for a little snack and some sweet tea? I am!

I simply covered a large wood tray I had with moss and cut the stems off of the flowers for this centerpiece. Then I added some birch wood slices I had sitting in my craft room for more texture. This is a great tablescape for hosting a brunch or tea. I will probably re create this look for Easter and Mother’s Day by simply changing out the flowers.

This was a lot of fun to make, and you can use any type of flower, as Spring comes nearer I’m sure I will be able to find more flowers at my local stores.

A pretty centerpiece that literally took 10 minutes to create. That’s what I call winning.

Thank you so much for stopping by and checking out my spring decor! I want to send you off to go visit Laura by clicking here, she is the next blogger in our Spring Home Love Tour and you do not want to miss it.
