Spring Decor on a Budget

O Spring, where art thou? If you're familiar with the Midwest, then you know Spring trickles in at about the pace it takes a giraffe to have a baby (which means painstakingly slow for those of you who have been living under a rock). I don't know about you but I'm ready to invite the excitement of the pending season inside. Screw Mother Nature and let's start spring decorating!

Today I'm sharing a round-up of budget-friendly spring decor that will help you 
update your home with ease!

Before we jump into these seasonal goodies, let me first say that a recipe for instant spring does not need to cost a fortune! 4 to 5 years ago I use to think welcoming spring into your home meant ONLY decorating with Easter-themed decor and that I needed to change  almost EVERYTHING for the new season. This was during the time Charlie Sheen had a mental breakdown, so obviously a lot of us were not thinking straight back then.

Nowadays, I live by a few rules (outside of looking for bargains and using coupons) when it comes to saving moola on spring decorating:

Tip #1: Avoid purchasing Easter-specific decor that will only adorn your house for a few weeks and instead spend your money wisely on items that can stand the test of time. 

Topiaries for example, scream spring and summer. You can even incorporate them into your holiday decor by adorning them with little ornaments or a string of white lights.

Tip# 2: Shop your own home! Refresh your space with items you already have and only add spring flair with a few new pieces each year, if needed. You can easily do this by adding a few new throw pillows, a vase of fresh grocery store flowers, and perhaps a new doormat, and then calling it a day (or a season!)

Ever since I started following these two rules in my life, not only have I cut back on spending unnecessary money on short-term seasonal decor BUT I've also limited the amount of crap I need to store in our basement when the seasons over. #winner

Here's a few other budget-friendly spring decor items I've been eyeing that I think you may like too. Outside of one or two items, they're all under $25!

Any favorites? I'm in love with the rabbit arrow and gingham napkins! Periwinkle was our wedding color, so I'll always have soft spot for anything in that hue. Yes, even a periwinkle opossum, I suppose.

I do however need to take a moment to pay respect to that tobacco basket. I picked one up for $8 at Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago and for any of you who are familiar with what it costs to purchase an authentic tobacco basket (pretty much an arm and a leg and a lung), then you'll know this is seriously the deal of the century! You can adorn it with a small spring wreath for the season and change it out for the fall and winter. So versatile.

(By the way I am not affiliate for HL, just love to share when I find 
a great deal, and as they say sharing is caring....)

Well I hope the subject of spring in today's post put y'all in good spirits. 
Now....if only we could get Mother Nature on the same page.

I love the white bunnies from Target. I found a sitting candy dish for $3 ceramic bunny that looked very similar to the $15 porcelain one in their dishes section. Even my 7 year old daughter said "why buy the expensive one when they look identical?" Smart girl! The $3 bunny is sitting on my dining room table, ready for candy (but I'm not and neither is my 3 year old son who eats everything). He may get a plant instead!

I'd love to hear from you!
