Are you looking forward to spring? This time of year, even with snow on the ground I’m really looking forward to seeing signs of life come back to my beloved Lancaster County! So let’s talk about 5 things to do for spring now!
This is the time of year I get very anxious for spring to arrive. I’m on “ROBIN REDBREAST” watch and can’t pass up tulips at the grocers. And the crocus will start sprouting very soon.
These are all little things to celebrate and tell me that spring is about to be sprung!
Even though it’s early let’s get started and enjoy getting ready for spring!

ADD PRETTY SPRING FAUX FLOWERS TO YOUR DECOR
Flowers play a big role in spring decorating here at StoneGable! And of all the things to do now for spring, adding flowers to your decor should be a the top of your list.
I’ve been collecting blooms that look so real you almost have to touch them to make sure for years! So, decorating for spring is as easy as a trip to my basement!
Make sure to check out CREATIVE WAYS TO USE FAUX FLOWERS HERE.
I’m sharing lots of ways to add oh, so pretty blooms to your everyday decor and my best sources for faux flowers!
Get a jump start on all those fabulous flowering trees.
This is one of my most favorite spring things to do!
Cut branches from flowering trees and put them in a container with a little water. In no time at all, they will start to bloom. If you can’t find any flowering trees most garden shops carry branches to force.
I travel about an hour from home every spring to get the gorgeous salmon-colored flowering quince branches from Terrain. This is such a special treat for me every year!
Make a statement with branches that will give you weeks of blooms!
KEEP CUT TULIPS FRESH LONGER
Do you love tulips as much as I do? Any time of year, please! This is such a no brainer, friends! And grocery stores carry tulips. I make a bouquet of them part of my weekly shopping!
Yes, they are a little luxury but they give me so much joy for the $$!
I have a FABULOUS post about how to keep cut tulips fresh longer and it’s a must-read if you are like me and buy them regularly!
BUY OR MAKE A SPRING PILLOW
Lighten up and make a pretty pillow for the upcoming season! Make a few now and they will be ready when you’re ready to decorate when warmer weather arrives!
The pillow is my very favorite pillow. So easy to make, even if you are not crafty! And there is no sewing involved. This pillow was put together with hot glue!
NOW, get started! What are you going to do to usher in SPRING? We would love to know!
