Winter finally seems to be letting us off the hook – meaning warmer weather, more sun and tons of flowers! We at Friends of Glass know you’ve been dying for spring to get here (we have too), and what better way to get into the swing of spring than with a fun and easy step-by-step guide inspired by glass! With all that beautiful flora and fauna emerging, glass is the perfect way to bring all the budding new life outside, inside your home in an elegant way.
Step 1 – Spring Cleaning
We know, we know – spring cleaning isn’t really anyone’s idea of ‘fun’, but having a tidy around your home will really help your home (and you) feel new again. By throwing away or storing things that you needed for your winter hibernation phase, you’ll be making room for all that fresh spring air – and maybe a few new things as well
You don’t have to hide your cleaning products either! This idea to use old glass olive oil bottles for cleaning solutions from Martha Stewart, is a brilliant way to up-cycle old glass bottles and proudly show off your mastery of cleaning.
Step 2 – Decorate Your Home
Whether you’re living in a palace or a studio, what we love most about spring decorating is how it opens up any living space. Bring light and airiness to any room of your home simply by adding some fresh spring flowers or by using pastel colours. Glass is a perfect way to showcase the masterpiece that Mother Nature gives us every spring. The Inspired Room blog shows how some simple glass vases and spring branches make great statement pieces.
Or you can just incorporate pastel coloured dishware to invigorate your home with the feeling of spring. This gorgeous glass teacup set available from Yardofbleu Etsy seller, is reminiscent of delicate bird’s eggs, and will give any home an instant spring upgrade.
Step 3 – Throw a Party!
With all the hard work you’ve put into getting your home ready for spring, it’s only fair that you get to take advantage of it as well! You’ll be dying to show off your spring-infused home, so be sure to invite all your friends and family over to ‘ooo’ and ‘ahhh’ over it as well. This eye-catching table decoration by Homedit.com, shows how just using some wine glasses and fresh cut tulips can create magnificent placeholders that your guests will be sure to remember – and imitate!
