Hang A Spring Wreath On Your Front Door

Spring Decor Ideas- Cherry Blossom Wreath on the front door

Hanging a beautiful spring wreath on the front door notes winter’s passing and spring’s welcoming. It’s a rite of passage and the first thing I do when I decorate for spring.

An essential spring decor idea is a big, lush, welcoming spring wreath. I am a huge fan of making my own spring door decor using grapevine wreaths and baskets. And I fill them with spring flowers, moss, and sometimes a twiggy nest!

A spring wreath in an entryway offers guests and passersby a big cheery welcome of the season.

The Cherry Blossom Weath was easy to make with just a couple of items. You might also like to see a Spring Front Door Basket, another easy-to-make spring DIY craft.

I like to use lots of texture in a spring wreath and the same spring-inspired colors I see outside my door.

Do A Little Spring Cleaning And Organizing

A bit of “spit and polish” will work wonders for your home before you decorate for spring. It’s the perfect time to throw open our windows and let the fresh air in while we tidy things up.

Since I keep our home pretty clean and organized all year round using an Easy To Do Cleaning and Organizing System, I mostly like to concentrate on cleaning my windows, washing the window screens and interior casings, and making my porch and patio spring-ready. You will also find me decluttering my clothes. Getting rid of what I did not wear and organizing my spring wardrobe.

I also like to gather up the things I think I’ll be using in our home for spring, like lightweight blankets and pillows, to freshen them up. Vases and planters also get washed so they are ready for flowers and spring plantings.

Bring Spring Florals Indoors

SPRING DECOR IDEAS- SPRING TETE-A-TETE DAFFODIL FLOWERS AND WHITE TULIPS ON A CONSOLE

Spring is a short-lived season in my area, so I love to fill our home with real spring flowers. Fresh flowers are an everyday luxury, especially when tulips, daffodils, and other spring flowers are in season. Bring spring flowers into your home! This is such an easy spring decor idea.

 SPRING HOME DECOR FAVORITES-  PANSIES IN A FOOTED BOWL WITH MOSS

Tulips

In the image below, a bouquet of tulips makes a fresh spring centerpiece. I love white tulips, and they work well with my neutral decor. But don’t pass up tulips in spring pastels or brightly colored ones for a pop of color!

I strive to keep my cut tulips looking fresh for at least a week or more. One of my most popular posts is How To Keep Cut Tulips Fresh Longer. In it, you will find easy ways to keep your tulips looking their best.

Potted Spring Flowers

SPRING DECOR IDEAS- daffodils in a white pot with moss around the base of it.

If you are decorating with potted spring flowers like tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, or pansies, it is best to remove them from their pots and replant them in a pretty container with holes for drainage. Adding a bit of moss to hide the dirt is also nice. The moss will help the soil stay moist longer and prevent the potted plant from drying out too quickly.

As the blooms fade, make sure to pinch them off so your plant looks healthy.

If you want to keep spring flowers in their plastic pots, slip them into another pretty container. Potted spring flowers usually last a bit longer than cut spring flowers.

Planting Cool Stored Bulbs

You can also plant cool stored bulbs in a shallow dish, pot, or other containers. Put pebbles in the bottom of the container and nestle bulbs, root side down, in the stones. Add water to cover the bulb’s root end and set it in a bright spot. The bulbs will begin to grow stems and leave and then bloom.

This is a beautiful way to get in the spring spirit.

Use Faux Flowers

I am a huge fan of faux flowers. In the spring, I try to find the real thing first because I’m so excited to use live, in-season blooms.

Faux flowers have come such a long way, and if they are very realistic, I’m thrilled to use them in our home too!

My rule of thumb for using faux flowers is…

Spring Faux Flower Tip

Use only the faux flowers that are blooming in season outside.

This rule applies to cut flowers, not potted flowers like orchids or lavender.

Using faux flowers found outside in the spring makes them much more believable. 7 Tips For Making Faux Flowers Look More Realistic has lots of helpful tips you will love!

Real and faux spring flowers can add life and beauty to your home and are an easy-to-do spring decor idea.

Decorate With Spring Organics

Besides using spring flowers, my spring home would not be complete without other spring organics and greenery. I use both real and faux greenery, but if I can find real-looking faux plants, I often opt for them because I am not known to have a green thumb when it comes to indoor plants.

Think about adding a pretty potted fern or a bowl of moss to your home. Willow balls in a white bowl or a vase of tall pussy willow branches set the mood for spring in any room.

Blooming Spring Branches

One of my favorite spring decor ideas is to force flowering spring branches from trees or bushes. It’s so easy and is the most stunning spring decoration!

How To Force Spring Branches will give you easy and detailed instructions to force blooms in your home.

Spring branches bloom in the most beautiful pastel shades. If you cannot find spring branches to force, why not buy faux spring branches to put in a big urn in your home. I’ve done this for years too!

I use spring-blooming branches in my home every spring. What a gorgeous statement! And so so easy to do!

Create A Spring Vignette

SPRING DECOR IDEAS- a spring vignette using a tray, books, a white bunny and a fern

Another spring decor idea is to create a simple spring vignette.

A vignette is a group of items that tell a story. Another way to think of a vignette is simple layers of decor arranged together. The charm of a vignette is how you style it to show off your unique personality.

I like using everyday items like candles, trays, books and spring seasonal accessories like bunnies, nests, and Easter eggs.

14 Easy Spring Vignettes will show you how to create many different spring vignettes from everyday items around your home. A spring vignette makes an attractive mini focal point on a coffee table!

Fill Your Home With the Scents Of Spring

Refresh your home with clean scents of spring. Use candles or essential oil diffusers to add to a spring sensory experience!

I look for spring scents blended with fruit or woodsy elements because I’m somewhat sensitive to single floral note fragrances. With diffusers, you can mix your own one-of-a-kind signature spring scent.

Most of us decorate for spring but often overlook adding beautiful scents to our homes to complement our decor.

Introduce A Little Spring Color

SPRING DECOR IDEAS- BEAUTIFUL SPRING BEDDING

Do you get inspiration from color? Even though I love my neutral home I still am a huge color enthusiast! In the spring, I like to add a bit of color taken right from nature this time of year.

Our bedroom coverlet and shams are soft duck egg blue. I’m so drawn to this color. I’ve even toyed with the idea of painting our bedroom this gorgeous color. The soft hues of spring work beautifully with my color palette.

No matter what your color scheme think about adding a little color of the season to your decor! I’m working on a few ideas to add a little bit of color to my spring living room! Look for a bit more color in our upcoming Spring Home Tour.

Lighten Up Your Textiles

Bed linens, throw pillows, decorative throws, bedding, accent rugs, and curtains are just a few textiles you can lighten up in the spring.

Instead of using heavy or bulky textiles, use lightweight layers. They will work better than one heavy layer.

Change out a heavy duvet for a lightweight coverlet. Swap out a wool rug for a sisal one. Think about foregoing curtains and adding bamboo shades. My favorite textiles to swap out our pillows. They can instantly change the look and feel of a room!

In the spring, opt for cotton, linen, or light natural fibers. This is a spring decor idea you can use in any room of your home.

Use A Few Seasonal Accent

To decorate for spring, you don’t need to fill your living room with bunnies, chicks, Easter Eggs, and nests or use any of these quintessential decor items. For a more subtle look, you can decorate with things like spring flowers.

One or two tasteful spring-inspired accent decor is all you need in a room to celebrate the season.

I’m not much for spring accents, except the occasion nest, but I could not resist this handsome pair of black rabbits. I purchased them a few years ago to sit on our spring mantel, but they have moved from room to room over the years! I think you might find them in our kitchen this spring.

The rabbits are an example of how one spring accent is just right for a room.

Plant Eary Spring Herbs

SPRING DECOR IDEAS- pots of herbs added on the kitchen island

When I think about spring, I think about herbs! I love to use them as decor.

They bring life to a kitchen and are perfect to have on hand for recipes! The Ultimate Guide To Planting Herbs Indoors will help you learn how to choose, plant, and care for the herbs you plant indoors.

Right now, I have small pots of mint, basil, thyme, and oregano in my kitchen.

In early spring, I like to plant chives, mint, lemon balm, and parsley in the planters outside near our patio. I like to make herb bouquets when the plants are big enough to clip. A bouquet looks charming in a small glass vase or a pretty little jar placed around our home. Sometimes, I tie a thin pastel ribbon around them before putting them in a vase.

Fresh herbs smell especially lovely on my nightstand next to my side of the bed or in the powder room.

Don’t overlook using herbs to decorate your spring home!

FAQs About Spring Decor

Use natural elements that are outside your door to decorate inside during the spring season. Also use items like rabbits, nests, and other iconic things that remind you of spring. Use these things sparingly.

Swap out all heavy winter-inspired textiles and add lightweight fabrics. Use pretty spring colors and that creates a light natural look.

Switching to spring decor is a very personal thing. Most people start replacing winter decor sometime in March or as early as the beginning of lent.

  1. You always have such great tips and ideas. Thanks so much for sharing in your unique inspiring way.

  2. This was such a helpful post – thank you! Where did you purchase the metal tray with ball feet?

  3. Awesome tips for Spring. I love the poppies and want to order. When I went to the website to order the color of yours I got confused. They don’t offer a peach color like yours or could it be pink?

  4. MARY-ANN (FROM CANADA!) says:

    Great Spring decor tips, Yvonne! I like how you used the reindeer moss with the white flowers in your round dish. Also, putting some water in a vase with faux flowers is an excellent idea. I have always thought of having an indoor herb garden and I think this will be the Spring to plant one. You always have such great ideas for us and I thank you for always going that extra mile for us. Bless you!

    1. Thanks, Mary Ann! I hope you do try an indoor herb garden. It’s so rewarding.

  5. Hi Yvonne, I’m just coming back to this post. You inspired me with the pansies in the footed bowl. I took your cue , using a brass lattice work bowl. I purchased some moss sheets, lined the bowl, placed another bowl within the bowl and planted white pansies, covered with moss. I have it on my ottoman in a brass tray. Love the springtime look, since right now it is rainy, stormy and freezing here in the SF Bay Area. The unexpected snow makes our area lovely especially in Napa and Sonoma…Have a great week….

      1. Hi Yvonne, just an update on the pansies in the brass bowl, they are still blooming, and giving a much needed shot of spring cheer, on a rainy Sunday. I love your idea, and when the pansies, go I’ll find something else to plant for summer…have a lovely Sunday..tomorrow 1st day of spring!!!

  6. Love all the inspiration. I am having trouble remembering how I staged my dining table last spring! One time I read the suggestion somewhere that we should take a photo of a tablescape and other decor to keep for next year. I may do that this year. I do have around 10 wreaths that I rotate throughout the year – some I have made myself, others I have purchased. I am already thinking of the outside of our home. For the first time ever we are having our lawn mowed this year by a landscaper. We have always had our flowering trees pruned early each spring, and I just today contacted the tree service for that. We will also be having our home exterior and windows washed after the spring/early summer pollen season passes. We are looking at paint samples to select a new color for the front door. As far as the inside goes, I always use the first 3 months of every year to purchase new items that we need. I installed new comb blinds in the bedrooms myself. I also refreshed the bedding in the primary bedroom. Next up is a refresh of our powder room. I think these smaller updates really make a difference in our home.

  7. Hi Yvonne,

    When looking through all your wonderful spring ideas, I saw artwork to the left of your bed. Is that a recent purchase and can still be sourced? I just love it! If so may I have the information?
    Every post of yours is like opening a present in my email! Thank you!
