I love summer entertaining, it’s probably my favorite thing about the season. Dining outside, lingering over good conversation with friends, spending an evening in the backyard. These are all a big part of summer for us. However, I don’t know about you, but our weather is not always cooperative! Especially in these early summer months of May and June. Our days are gloomy, grey, and even rainy. But of course, we still want to entertain!
It’s hard to believe we’re already half way through May!! How did that happen?! I feel like I was just talking about winter decorating, and now we’re well into spring and about to talk summer! (Not that I’m complaining mind you – we’ve had such a rainy winter and quite a gloomy spring so I’m very ready for some sun!)
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.
It’s spring! Well, not exactly or officially, haha! But it is March. And we sprung ahead on the clocks this past weekend, so it’s as close as we need to be to decorate!
I know a lot of friends and readers who have asked me about decorating for winter or spring. It seems everyone decorates for the holidays, and that’s kind of straight up and obvious. Everyone gets that one. But winter and spring are another story. Especially when you don’t celebrate Easter, or when Easter is really late, like this year. It’s sometimes hard to figure out what the right balance is. How to do it easily. How not to get too “theme-y.” And how to do it without breaking the bank!
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.
