Sprucing Up Our House

Once, the Christmas Season is over and all of the decorations are stored, our home looked bare. So, I’m starting to get ready for Spring. I thought I’d get out seasonal decorations for Valentine’s Day. But, then I thought it would be best to do a generic Spring touch. Then I can add seasonal touches for each of the upcoming seasons such as Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day and Easter.

Subsequently, I purchased two grapevine wreaths. I decorated them with silk flowers. Here’s what they look like.

Silk Pansies.

The second wreath, using the surplus pansies ended up looking like this…

Then I picked up large African Lilies. I picked up several of these tall green pails as part of a bargain. The tin pail is the perfect container for these Spring blossoms, don’t you think so?

African Lilly Bouquet. As a finishing touch, I added two branches of baby’s breath. Now, my entryway table looks bright.

Our home is now cheerier with these splashes of spring.

    They’re all very pretty! The second wreath is my favorite.
