Do you love spring as much as I do?! To me, it is one of my favorite seasons. There is just something so lovely about the flower buds popping out, the grass turning green, and some sunshine on your face after a long (and in my case, wet) winter!
Happy weekend friends! And what a happy weekend it is. Today it is in the 80s – woot, woot!! I can’t even tell you how excited I am to have some truly warm weather! And how appropriate that I would be sharing some more spring decorating with you today.
A couple of weeks ago, I shared some early spring decorating in the kitchen. Because spring hadn’t nearly arrived yet, and because Easter was still so far away, it felt a little early to bring out the bunnies at that point. But not now! This week I couldn’t resist bringing out just a few! So today I’m sharing some simple but festive ideas for Easter decorating. I don’t ever want to go too crazy or “themed” with my decor, but it’s such a cheerful season that I love bringing a touch into the house each year.
As promised, I’m back today with another spring post. If your weather is anything like ours, it feels like spring is still a long ways away ~ but I’m hopeful! I’m of the “If we decorate for it, it will come!” mind, and I’m sticking to it! 😉 We are in the midst of yet another rainstorm so a little spring cheer is definitely in order here!
I’m not one to do a lot of decorating for Valentine’s Day, but I do like to do a little something as a nod to the holiday.When the kids were younger, I did much more in terms of decor and gifts. However, this year I wanted to keep it simple while still making it feel festive!
I don’t know about all of you, but my husband and I haven’t dined out on Valentine’s Day in probably fifteen years! That night it is overly crowded, and the food is always expensive. Most years we do a dinner out on another night and a family dinner on Valentine’s Day itself. But this year, it falls on a Thursday which happens to be a night my teens will be out at a weekly function. So I thought, why not do a special dinner at home in our own dining room? Candles, good food, uninterrupted conversation and no crowds or over-priced food – sign me up!
