Can you believe we’re already halfway through March?! HALFWAY. Seriously, I don’t even know how that is possible. It feels like Christmas was two weeks ago, right? These past few months have absolutely flown by so fast and here we are smack dab in the middle of March. It’s pure craziness, but you won’t hear me complaining because we’re heading into my favorite time of year. Spring (and summer!) will always have my heart, so I’m tickled pink to see winter slowly coming to a close. We obviously still have a ways to go, but the end is near my friends. And that makes me happy because I LOVE decorating our home for spring. There’s nothing fussy or high maintenance about it–it’s just fresh and easy. I’ve starting adding some some simple spring touches around the house and today I’m excited to share how things are looking in our kitchen!
After putting so much work into the kitchen during our remodel last year, it’s just really nice to slow down and finally enjoy this space. It’s obviously not the biggest or the fanciest, but I always feel so happy in here because it’s the perfect kitchen for us. And it’s become the first place I like to decorate as the seasons change!
I love using loads of greenery when it comes to spring decor. Where it’s faux or real, you just can’t go wrong with a few cute potted plants.
A couple of days ago I got a few new candles for spring from Antique Candle Works, which you guys know is my FAVORITE. I just love this company for so many reasons. (Check out this post where I shared more about them!) Their candles are soy and hand poured in these vintage inspired mason jars by the sweetest ladies in Indiana. You can read more about how they’re made here. This new Sweet Lemon scent is perfect for spring and it seriously smells divine. I cannot get enough of it. It’s the perfect amount of sweetness and it makes the house smell SO crisp and clean. I wish you could smell how fresh it is! And can we talk about how cute these jars are for a second?! They make great decor all on their own.
I always think of candles as being one of those simple little things in life that I appreciate the most. Like a great cup of coffee or a home cooked meal, there is just something really comforting about having a good candle burning. They have this magical ability to instantly make any room feel cozy and inviting. I LOVE having candles in our home and I’m always excited to get myself a few new scents as the seasons change. This one here is Fresh Cut Herbs and it’s a mix of basil and mint, which is also perfect for spring. It’s so refreshing and it literally makes the kitchen smell like a little garden! I’m so glad I have the larger size, but it also comes in a smaller jar as well. And you can see all of their amazing spring candles here.
Of course I can’t decorate for spring without fresh flowers too! You guys, I’ve become addicted to having flowers in our kitchen. I typically buy them on clearance from the grocery store, but I decided to splurge on this gorgeous orchid. Isn’t it stunning?! Every time I do dishes I just stare in awe at its beauty. Really, God did good when He created orchids.
Well I hope you enjoyed seeing my simple spring kitchen. It only took a bit of greenery, fresh flowers, and a few new candles to freshen things up in here. I really wish you could come over for a cup of coffee and a chat! And possibly some kind of delicious baked good. Maybe brownies? Or blueberry muffins. Maybe even chocolate chip cookies, which just so happen to be my speciality. I’ll make a double batch!
Thanks so much for dropping by and spending part of your day with me. It means so much! xoxo
