Spring & Easter Décor

Although it doesn't feel like spring in Richmond, the flowers blooming in our front yard are reminding me that warmer weather is not far behind. daffodil & snow

I love springtime and all of the colors that come with it.  There are so many ways to chase away the winter blues and brighten up the spaces within your home.  I've gathered a few ideas that I hope will give you some inspiration.

I often think about decorating our dining room chandelier around Christmastime, but what about for Easter?  You could use ribbon, greenery, Easter eggs, or whatever else you have on hand to dress up your chandelier.

If you want to keep your décor on the table try combining pastels and bright colors.  Using a mix of flowers, patterns, and colors will make your table feel fresh and inviting.  Also, don’t forget to add details to other pieces in the room – did you notice the purple ribbon on these chairs?

I also really like the look of using a monochromatic color scheme when setting a tablescape.  This assortment of yellow tulips and daffodils is simple and sweet, but the tiered arrangement in small containers keeps it interesting.

Instead of buying new flowers from the store every week, try using what is blooming in your yard.  Forsythia, dogwood, and cherry blossom branches are great to bring inside and use in tall vases.  They also make perfect Easter trees!

Another option is to take branches without any blooms and spray paint them a fun color, or colors.  Place them in a pretty vase and add spring-themed adornments, or leave them as is for an understated accessory.

If you want something that will last throughout the season, and can even be reused for years to come, try these adorable ribbon topiaries.  Mix and match the colors you want to coordinate perfectly with your décor.

Spring is the perfect time to refresh your mantel.  I found two ideas for using a picket fence as a focal point on the mantel.  Here, the fence is kept in its wood tone for a natural look.  The paper wreath keeps the natural feel while the flowers add a little bit of color.

The bright and fun mix of colors on this mantel would carry these decorations into summertime as well.  I love the “Hello, Sunshine!” message too.  How could that not put a smile on your face?

Another great place to add a touch of spring décor is your front door.  I love this rustic wreath, tied with an oversized burlap bow.

If you want a colorful wreath, I always love the yarn wreaths.  They can be adorned with flowers, branches, birds, or other ribbon, and the color choices and combinations are endless.
