Spring has Sprung! Tips on Getting Your Home Ready for Spring


At long last – Spring has sprung! Which means it’s time to start getting your home ready with fresh new spring décor products available at your local Family Dollar. I’m not talking about a total room makeover, but rather some simple spring decorating ideas that will freshen and brighten up every room of your home. All it takes is a pop of color here and there, and maybe some flowers to really transform a room and bring your spring garden indoors.

Tips on Getting Your Home Ready for Spring


Throw Pillows

Pillows are a great way to transform an ordinary chair or sofa from drab to fab. I love how this floral print pillow brings the garden into my living room, while staying true to the neutral tunes of my décor. I found a fabulous selection of throw pillows at my local Family Dollar store, in a variety of prints and colors.



Don’t have a green thumb? No worries, because Family Dollar has a plethora of silk flowers in every color of the rainbow. No watering or fertilizer required!

I used a blue lantern with a metal wire handle, found in the outdoor gardening section of my Family Dollar store. Then I filled it with blue, white, and yellow Delphinium, Hyacinth, and Astrid artificial flowers. It’s just lovely, and really makes the room feel like a spring garden. Next to the flowers I placed a sweet Inspirational Stone with a hummingbird, I found near the outdoor garden products. I think this is one of my favorite spring decorations.


Wall Art

The spring flowers don’t stop there. The addition of a simple painting or wall art done with bright colors or pastels adds a lot to a room. I picked up this beautiful flower wall art for a steal at my local Family Dollar Store, and it’s the perfect addition to my informal dining area. It’s my kind of spring gardening, but it’s indoors!


Area Rugs

Colorful area rugs are the perfect way to brighten up a room for spring. The warm weather is sure to have your family coming in and out a lot more, so place a colorful new rug at your home’s entry way and in any room that needs to be brightened up.


Indoor/Outdoor Dining

During the spring months when the weather is just right, my family likes to spend time out on the screened porch. After firing up the grill, it’s the perfect place to eat dinner and enjoy the sound of the crickets. Family Dollar has a nice selection of products for outdoor dining in fun, bright colors. This bright blue 8 Piece Bowl Set is perfect for summer salads, and the matching Pitcher with Lid and 3 Tumblers serves up plenty of refreshing iced tea. I also had to grab some pretty spring placemats covered in butterflies, like the ones that are making their first appearance in my garden.

Happy Spring everyone!
