Whether it be one or two small pots on your front stoop or planter boxes beneath every window, plant a few spring-like blooms and your home will instantly be transformed and be ready for spring.
Take all of those heavy knit blankets and cozy pillows and replace them with light and airier versions. Gone are the wool, knits, faux fur, and flannel and in are pastels, light prints, and cottons.
Trade out your “winter” candles for something a little lighter, brighter, and with a floral scent. Your home will definitely smell like spring in no time.
With the arrival of spring comes an array of beautiful, fresh flowers available at the local grocery stores and farmer’s markets. Take advantage while you can and create lots of smaller arrangements for each room or one or two larger arrangements. Your home will instantly feel fresher, smell beautiful, and it will make you a happier human, we promise.
If you’re an avid gardener, you’ve probably already started your seedlings indoor, but if you’re not, now is the time to give it a go. We love planting seedlings in empty egg shells that have been cleaned out. Just prick a hole in the bottom with a pin for drainage, fill with dirt and your seeds and you can plant the entire egg in the ground to help as fertilizer.
Add a floral or spring-themed wreath to your front door for an instant welcome to spring.
Last, but not least, get outside! Shake off those winter blues and enjoy the new, warm weather. Grill, entertain outside, go for walks, or play, just enjoy these few months before the weather turns really hot!
