Colorado had a blizzard last week and our yard enjoyed 12 inches of fresh powder. My back yard faces north and my front yard faces south so this time of year my yard looks like a mullet. So while my backyard looks like it needs a blow-up Frosty the Snowman, my front yard is screaming for mulch and tulips.
Ironically, I have a holiday poinsettia in my kitchen. I placed it on the window ledge, facing the snow-covered backyard so it can look out the window and dream of a white Christmas for next year. The poinsettia is team mullet.
Here are a few ways to decorate for spring when the one side of your yard looks like a mullet… I mean winter.
Somewhere between last July and February, I fell in love with gingham. I love to wear gingham, but I was little hesitant to go gingham style on my house. Well a new puppy and a blizzard will turn anyone.
With a 2nd snow day, I caved and ordered gingham cloth napkins from Amazon. I just Googled gingham and three days later I had a set of gingham cloth napkins.
I first introduced gingham into the house with a roll of ribbon. It was a low-cost purchase. The boxwood loved it!
I purchased this little plant (does anyone know what type of plant it is?) for a seller’s kitchen during the holidays. She didn’t want another plant to take care of so I brought it home for the holidays. It’s still here!
It was time to switch out some of my pillows. I found this Cheers pillow from Pottery Barn in SLC when my boys played in a sectional tennis tournament. Six years ago. It was time!
The pillow cover was perfect for the month of January, but by March it was ready for spring. I found this pillow cover at Pottery Barn. I bought it on sale last weekend.
The navy should work thru Thanksgiving!
Adding a little bit of spring decor makes it a little easier to transition to Easter eggs and bunnies! Happy First Day of Spring!
