The wait is over: Bring on spring

  • Written by Molbak’s Garden+Home

Spring officially started last week. While Mother Nature still has the power to toss some dreary days and soggy stretches our way, she can’t dampen our optimism. The calendar has spoken, and rain or shine, we are now allowed to welcome spring enthusiastically into our hearts and homes. The best part is that it doesn’t take much. Here are some simple ideas to help you get into the springtime swing. 

Get ready to gather.
Easter. Mother’s Day. An unexpected sun break on a Sunday afternoon. Spring gives us all sorts of good reasons to come out of social hibernation and gather with family and friends. Dust off your décor and bring your springtime tabletop out of hiding. If it looks a little tired, liven the look with colorful new table runner or a fresh hydrangea centerpiece bursting with blooms.

As for the menu, keep it easy and light. Pick up a new cookbook filled with fresh recipes and wake up your tastebuds with the flavors of spring. Think roasted asparagus, beet salad with feta and arugula, a chilled beverage flavored with spring herbs. The options are endless, and delicious.

Brighten your look.
Your winter wardrobe has served you well, but it could use a splash of spring color. Start by trading your favorite winter scarf for something light and fresh in an airy springtime hue. Next, find a bright new handbag to be your new springtime staple. Top it all off with a piece of handmade jewelry that makes you happy through and through. You’ll be surprised at how little it costs to look like a million bucks!

Delight in the small stuff.
A pretty reed diffuser that fills your living spaces with the fresh scent of Meyer Lemon. An artful piece of stationery to send to a faraway friend. A rich hand cream for your purse that smoothes and soothes. Sometimes it’s the tiniest detail that brings the most joy. So splurge on something small and appreciate the care and artistry that went into creating it.
