If you look outside my windows, you would see mounds of snow about 5 feet high. That doesn’t stop me from celebrating the arrival of Spring inside. Yep, I also realize that Spring doesn’t officially start until March 20th (I’ve marked my calendar!). So how does one actually prepare oneself for Spring? In my case, I made sure that my coffee table’s adorned with Spring-worthy items. These items bring Spring alive by enticing the senses (sight, taste, smell) that I would typically associate Spring with.
Creating a room that smells energetic, vibrant, new, and fresh is rather challenging. But I’ve got just the solution. Austin Leigh recently sent me their Lemon & Olive Branch scented candle and I have to tell you- it’s nothing short of amazing. The aroma is so heavenly fresh that my entire living room (I have a big one!) smells like Spring even before I lit the candle. It’s that intoxicating good!
I like pretty things. But pretty simple things- nothing too elaborate, complicated, or over the top. What can be more simple than tulips and roses? The sight of these beauties take me back to Spring when everything mother nature is in bloom. I am soo diggin’ the gorgeous contrast between the white tulips and fuchsia roses.
And to round things up, my sense of taste is satisfied with these flavorful, delicate macarons. Lemon, orange, and raspberry flavors- how much more Spring can you get?! Talk about a burst of Spring in every single bite.
