10 Ways to Bring on SPRING...Wreaths, Centerpieces, Banners, Tablescapes and More!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT 10 Ways to Bring on SPRINGWith spring still a month away, many of you are in the grips of a long, snowy winter and down here in the South, we are in the middle of an ice storm. Let's face it...we still have some dreary days head of us. Sooo…I have decided to take things into my own hands and begin to think spring-y thoughts! I am sharing some ways that you can begin to sprinkle in a few little hints of one of my favorite seasons…even if it's just inside your home!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT A Touch of Spring #1. Add Spring to a Centerpiece
No, our daffodils aren’t blooming yet, but the faux variety is! I love how realistic these are and the way they add a touch of sunny yellow to my spring centerpiece, too! You can see more here.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Chalkboard Birds on a String #2. Make a Spring Banner
Little birds just say spring to me and my chalkboard birds on a string bring a little touch of it into my home! And best of all…it was almost free!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT 25 Spring Wreaths#3. Create a Spring Wreath
What a fun way to signal that spring is on the least inside your home or on your front door! And with this collection of 25+ spring wreaths, there are so many ways to choose from! See them all here.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Ballard Inspired Vintage French Bunny Pillow #4. Sew a Spring Pillow
Hippity hoppity! Bunnies are not just a sign that Easter's on its way…they help bring in spring, too! And I even think this little guy could even stay out all year! I added a little touch of frenchiness, too, and created my Ballard inspired vintage French bunny pillow. The free graphic is included in the tutorial.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Vintage French Spring Vignette #5. Create a Spring Vignette
Why not pull together some of your favorite spring-y items and create a little vignette? Some fun little French flashcards and a sweet faux chalkware lamb add up to create my vintage French spring vignette.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Blue and Yellow Spring Mantel #6. Add Some Spring to Your Mantel
Your mantel is a great place to showcase a touch of spring! Sunny blue and yellow always remind me of warmer days in Provence. Just add daffodils and you have my mantel for spring! Get a closer look here.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Spring Tablescape in Blue and White #7. Bring Spring to Your Table
There’s nothing prettier than a table all set for spring! Tulips are a sure sign that spring is not far away so I mixed them with my favorite pieces to create a springy blue and white tablescape!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Pottery Barn Inspired Burlap-Wrapped Vases#8. Bring in Real Spring Flowers
I am so excited because flowering spring bulbs and fresh flowers are starting to show up in the stores! You don’t need a fancy vase to display them, either. For example, my Pottery Barn inspired burlap-wrapped vases do the trick without costing a lot of money!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Easy Flower Pot Wreath#9. Play with Flower Pots
Flower pots aren’t just for planting…they can be used to create spring décor! My easy flower pot wreath brings a touch of spring right to your front door!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Chalkboard Flower Pots Or…can’t wait to start digging and planting in the garden? Why not get an early start and pot some spring bulbs! Add a little chalkboard label for even more fun! And my chalkboard flower pots make great gifts, too!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Spring Porch #10. Add Spring to Your Porch
And a final way to bring on spring…add it to your porch! You may want to save this one for last if you live in a snowy area so that your neighbors don’t think you have lost your mind! ;-) However, for me, bunnies and daffodils (Are you noticing that I love daffodils?) will soon be welcoming my guests on my spring front porch.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Kitty and Catnip As for the staff, our Miss Kitty says that a sure sign of spring for her is the arrival of the pot of fresh catnip on the patio…and she can’t wait!
What about you? How do you bring on an early touch of spring? 

Remember to pin it!
