Do you know how much spring decorating I have going on in my house now? Pretty much nada. After going through a bunch of photos from years past for this post I’m inspired to add a little bit of spring into our house tomorrow morning. I’ve collected a random assortment of some of my favorite and affordable ways to add spring touches to your home. I hope one or two of these feel easy and fun for you to add into your home… and you don’t even have to spend any money… just go out to the yard and cut some branches to force!

Rustic Flower Box Loaded with Flowers and Eggs
This is one of my most popular pins… and for some reason none of the photos in the post are loading but in 2011 AJ and I made a flower box from an old pallet. I added various flowers, some moss rocks from the Dollar Tree and then some real eggs from our chicken (and a couple of faux ones as well).
We had some great forsythia bushes at our last house and it was so fun to bring in some of the incredibly fast growing branches while it was still freezing out and see if they would open for us!
Have some fun with a hutch by adding a removable background
This background for Elle’s first birthday was just some scrapbook paper!
Get some fun straws and water goblets for parties
I’m the last of the big spenders… these glass water goblets are from the Dollar Tree and straws very similar to these were just in Target’s Dollar Spot.
Grab some fun drinks in springy colors
These sparkling lemonades from Trader Joe’s are always a hit at any party we throw!
Add Cadbury Mini Eggs to anything
Truly… anything… and people will love you. 🙂
Make little groupings of eggs, flowers and moss.
I don’t really need to elaborate… it’s so easy to grab some loose moss at Michaels and pop some eggs on top of it.
Tulips and Boxwood Monograms
I think tulips are the epitome of spring and when paired with a fun boxwood monogram it’s green and springy (and incredibly easy!).
Eggs and Twigs go a long way
This is one of the world’s simplest arrangements. Pop some branches with buds in a vase and then add eggs around the base. Anyone can do it! Pottery Barn has some great eggs I bought a few years ago and so does Joann Fabrics!

Tulips plus branches
Are you sensing a theme here? I love forcing branches… especially when it adds some great dimension to arrangements! Our grocery store and Trader Joe’s regularly have $5 tulips… they last for about a week and often I’ll make a couple of smaller arrangements so we can have live flowers in a few rooms.
Add a Springy Doormat
This one was from Kirkland’s last year and now sits on our back deck (but sadly it’s not in stock anymore, this one from Target is a close replica!)… but Wayfair (link goes directly to the one we currently have on our front step), Target and West Elm have a good selection.
Happy Almost Spring, Friends! 🙂
