March is the the month we officially welcome spring, and it’s a favorite time of year as nature begins its annual ritual of blooming and growing again. The Easter holiday is when friends and family gather to celebrate with traditions of egg hunts and special meals. In anticipation, I gathered some simple and elegant ideas to inspire your entertaining and decorating around the home.
Pull out your pastel dishes to create a sweet seasonal vignette on an open shelf or cabinet to welcome the arrival of the season.
Tulips are one of the floral symbols of the season, display them in unexpected ways such as a teapot and accompanying stacked cups. Hyacinth and lily of the valley are also complementary and symbolic spring bouquets.
Delicate quail eggs framed with pretty papers in shadow boxes are an elegant spring inspired gallery wall that you’ll want to keep on display all year round.
Blossoming branches are the first sign of the season but if the real ones are unavailable or not quite ready in your region, recreate the look with hot glue and faux pink blooms for branches and blossoms that lasts for months.
