Spring is on it’s way! We’ve had a few days proving that it’s coming. Even though we new englanders know not to get our hopes up too much, because snow can still happen all the way up until May – yes MAY, with March in a few days, our long winter is winding down. Thankfully any snow we do get at this point is gone within a day or two, but even the kids have a bit of spring fever, and have said they are done with playing in the snow, lol. I’m gearing up to share our home decorated for spring, and while I’m not quite finished, I saw a photo the other day from a spring post I did a few years ago, and totally reminisced. It made me think, I should do a round up of some of my favorite posts from Springs past as we get ready to welcome in this much anticipated season. I always call it my much anticipated season, because after our long winters, it’s the one I look forward to the most. Longer days, warmer weather, and of course all those fantastic buds popping up everywhere! So before I share this years spring decor, here is a little spring decor roundup from some of my favorites in the past.

Lilacs have to be my favorite spring flower. And even though we won’t see any for another couple of months, I can’t wait for these fragrant beauties to arrive outside.
I was all ready to buy me some white tulips this year for my spring home tour, and when I walked in the florists they had an overload of the most beautiful peonies. I seriously could not resist. So this year I have peonies on my coffee table (they smell amazing!) but I love tulips in the spring. Any color really, but I’m a sucker for white ones.
I love working with white flowers in general, but I love grouping them together, in all different shapes and sizes. I also think they make the green pop a bit more too, and I love seeing fresh pops of green in spring.
I remember creating that tablescape above a few years back in February. Snow was falling outside, our wood stove was blazing, but you’d never know it with how fresh and springy everything looked through my camera lens.
That same year I also created this Easter tablescape below. It was so much fun to incorporate some faux moss for an extra pop of green.
I also created this fun “spring themed” gallery wall, using free printables and creating a little spring vignette on our buffet. You can get all the instructions on how I created this look HERE.
Nothing says spring more than fresh flowers. Especially when they come from your own yard. These lilacs below hadn’t even fully bloomed yet, but I couldn’t wait, and loved how they looked in a cluster of jars down the center of our table (below).
Last year I incorporated some real looking faux blooms for spring. And I have to say it was so nice to have flowers that lasted more than a week, lol.
Regardless though of if you incorporate real or faux flowers, just grab do it! It’s sure to put a smile on your face every time you walk into that room. I’m reminded of this right now when I browse through my favorite home decor stores. When they fill their aisles with spring blooms, I can’t help but not smile, because I know it’s just a sign of what’s to come!
