WFMW- Bringing Spring to my Kitchen!!

This week I have decided to share how I decorate for spring.... in my kitchen! I try to make things nice and fun for my family which means decorating for whatever holiday is coming up! In this case I try to make things look fresh and "springy" inside while the real flowers grow on the outside. It seems to lift all of our spirits!

When I had kids I started decorating more with each special occasion. My kitchen , however was left out. I could never figure out how to make my kitchen look decorated without cluttered! This is what I came up with....




I bought some plain cream canisters when I was starting out on my own. (I think I got them all for around $10) For each holiday I adorn my plain jane canisters with ribbon, twigs, leaves, shamrocks, cinnamon sticks, you name it. Birthday parties are no exception. I will take red bandanna's and tie them around the canisters for my son's cowboy birthday party. For my Daughters princess party, its pink tulle.


Its just a small ,cheap way to make me smile when I walk in my kitchen and the kids seem to like it. And making your family smile works for every mama!

I love having basics that are easily adjusted for every situation. Wise purchase! I'm working on doing this myself.

What a cute idea! I love changing things out for each holiday or season. I'm taking down St. Pat's a little at a time and will soon be putting out all my bunnies and other Easter goodies.

Very pretty! I love white pottery, and that's such a nice way to accent it. :)

By way the way,I saw your comment on Rocks in my Dryer about Lost... which dock scene did you mean with the boat named Illusion? I was a little confused...

Looking forward to clicking around your blog! :)
