Happy first day of April! I finally packed away my winter decor and brought out my spring pretties, so hopefully soon the weather will start to warm up here in Indiana. If I decorate for spring inside then maybe that will help it feel more like spring outside, right? 😉
Today some of my friends and I are sharing lovely spring decorating ideas – be sure to visit their links at the end of this post when you’re finished reading here.
Where I live, flowers won’t start blooming for at least a few more weeks, so I wanted to keep my mantel mostly white and green with just a hint of color.
I left my painted vintage frame and candlesticks up from my winter decor (and they were also part of last summer’s mantel) since they’re versatile. Hooray for keeping things simple!
I added a small decorative garden fence from Hobby Lobby this year. (LOVE)
And I’ve been working on expanding my boxwood/greenery collection (IKEA, Hobby Lobby, Target).
I made and hung a fabric garland for a subtle hint of color with mostly white, pink, and green. (Read the super easy DIY tutorial HERE.)
At first I thought my spring mantel was too simple, but I soon realized how much I love it!

Your mantel looks so pretty for spring. I like the combination of white with plant greenery and the garland for a pop of color. I bought one of your plants at Ikea earlier this week. 🙂

I love the fresh green and white. And that fabric garland is perfect and adds just the right amount of texture. Yes, hooray for simplicity! I hope it warms up soon there!
