I don’t know about where you live, but here on the east coast, this has been the never ending winter. And I am so, so over it. To be honest, I don’t usually fool with decorating for different seasons (just like I don’t decorate for most holidays). But this year, I am just so ready for spring. If spring refuses to come outside, I’m just going to stay inside and pretend it is here!
The problem is, when I think about decorating for spring, I picture Easter eggs and bunny rabbits and little nests with birds eggs in them. There is absolutely nothing wrong with those things…they just aren’t me. I prefer to be just a bit more subtle. (Plus there is a good chance any spring decorations I put up will linger into summer, so they can’t be too specific).
So I am on a mission to find some inspiration. I’m looking to bring in some spring. But not the cutesy bunny rabbit kind of spring. Fresh, happy, hopeful spring. And this is what I found:
When I think spring, the absolute first thing that comes to mind is flowers. Unfortunately, the only flowers blooming right now are our daffodils. (Which are struggling a bit considering they have already been snowed all over. Twice). But check out these gorgeous paper versions.

I love a good DIY garland. They are so easy to throw up anywhere – plus they double as perfect party décor.
Okay, so admittedly this could be borderline cutesy. But in a subtler, more grown up way. Plus, I love em. These pretty boots bring to mind spring evenings spent splashing through puddles. Which makes me happy.
And let’s not forget the easiest seasonal décor of all. If your home has a chalkboard or two, just add a festive spring quote. And if not (or if you just don’t have time to be changing your chalkboards every season) check out these free spring chalkboard printables.
And lastly, the centerpiece of most home decorating: the mantel. I love that these two spring mantels definitely usher in the season without being in your face.
Do you decorate for spring? If so, what are your favorite ways to bring a little spring inside?
