Springtime Blooms to the Table.

As Spring’s flowers and plants prepare to bloom, take advantage of the beauty of nature by bringing the outdoors into your home for colorful tabletop accents.

Walk around your landscaping and floral beds outside your home (and even borrow from your neighbors) to take cuttings of Spring’s blooms. Bring them inside and display them in vases, Ball jars, empty bottles and more.

From master baths and powder rooms to kitchens and family rooms, fresh cut flowers are always a great accent of color and a wonderful aromatic delight.

Here are some of Spring’s most fragrant flowers:

The lilac. One of my personal favorites, this delicate bloom in shades of lavender packs a fragrant punch.

The daffodil. A staple sign of Spring, its white petals and yellow center or all-yellow variety are abundant in nature.

The tulip. Another classic sign of Spring, the colors and varieties of tulips are wide ranging. From reds and purples, to yellows and pinks, you can’t go wrong with accenting your home with tulips.

The hyacinth. Ranging in all colors, from white and pink to purple, its thin petals makes a great accent to a floral arrangement.

Enjoy Springtime even when you’re inside your home!

Make A Curb Appeal Plan.

It’s time to give your home a boost to its curb appeal! Need some inspiration?

9c6fc60a6d97179aaf8f34854813c6b0

Front door makeover. Update your front door with an accent color or a seasonal wreath. Choose a color that compliments your home’s brick or siding and makes a nice contrast. Need some color inspiration? Check out Pinterest! Search “front door” and you’ll see what I mean.

Front porch focal point. If you have a covered front porch or landing, create an instant pop of color with various container plants and a spot to relax with outdoor furniture for a conversation area. Once Spring is in full bloom, check out local nurseries and farmers markets for colorful container plants.

Update house numbers. Local hardware and online stores offer a great variety of trendy, modern fonts with number designs. Accent a front pillar, wooden fence, overhang or mailbox post with new numbers.

Make a plant plan. Landscaping gives such boost to your home by using plant material to surround walkways or line the exterior features your home. Come up with a design plan for your green spaces. Clump flowers in groupings and keep the higher plants to the back and layer in with smaller plants in the front. Perennials are a cost-effective plant to use because they come back each year. Remove any dead growth left over from last Fall to give plants a boost this Spring.

Light up your exterior. Landscape lighting provides such a beautiful effect to your home, giving highlight to pathways, trees and flags during evening hours. Solar lights are an affordable solution for this as well.

Consider new paint. Stand back for a street view of your home and take a look at your shutters, exterior trim and front door. If your exterior finishes need some TLC, repaint them and give your home an instant makeover.

Treat your lawn. Apply a fertilizer to nourish your yard or hire an expert to diagnose any problems with grubs and weeds. Have your lawn mowers serviced and ready for mowing season.

Repair your driveway. Winter’s freezing and thawing can take a toll on driveways and sidewalks. Patch and seal any holes or cracks.

Wash the exterior. Clean out gutters and pick up fallen debris from around the home. Power wash your siding, wood decks and concrete sidewalks to freshen up your home and give instant curb appeal.

Happy Spring! Give your home better curb appeal with these easy, inexpensive tips!
