Spring is here!!! One of my favorite seasons of the year is spring. I love the pastel colors and bright trends that you see in storefronts and in Target. The bright colors put me in a good mood and give me an extra little SPRING in my step (hahaha... see what I did there?!). Spring, for me, is also like hitting the refresh button. Many people use this time to do spring cleaning, cleaning out their closets and garages. Spring is also a great time to update the decor in your home by including bright throw pillows and bringing in some flowers. Ahhh.... the flowers! Another thing I love about spring is the flowers that are in bloom. My favorite flowers are peonies. Peonies start blooming in April and bloom through the months of May and June. Many people also update their gardens and outdoor spaces so they can take advantage of the warmer weather.
I must confess, I live in South Florida so I experience the warm weather for most of the year. However, when spring comes around we get the urge to start looking for fun outings, or activities to do outdoors. Some ideas include:
- Visiting a botanical garden with your family and friends.
- Taking a casual stroll outside and enjoying nature.
- Having an inexpensive picnic.
Another thing I look forward to in spring is the celebration of Easter. If you happen to be hosting an Easter brunch at your home after church, don't forget about the kids. I think kids should have their own table settings as well. Here are some inspirational pics to help you get started.
Sparkling Skai's Design Tip: Don't forget to include a centerpiece, as I did with this rope bunny basket.
