Get lots of natural and neutral spring and Easter decorating ideas in a family room decorated for spring with greenery and vintage finds.
As soon as the weather starts to warm up even the tiniest bit, I start pulling out the bins filled with greenery, tulips, bunnies, and eggs!
The house gets a good cleaning and then it’s time to make everything feel just a little bit lighter.
A little bit brighter.
And then even if we happen to get some more dreary wintry weather outside, at least I’ve got a more cheery space inside.
There are a few spots in my home that always get a little seasonal decor: my front entry table, and my family room.
My house has a semi-open floor plan, so both of those spaces are pretty visible to each other.
It just makes sense to give them both a little bit of spring.
I can’t wait to share my family room with you, but first…
Welcome to the Celebrate Spring Blog Hop!
We love visiting the homes of other decor bloggers and finding new ideas and inspiration for our homes. Thank you so much to our friend Leen from Sand Dollar Lane for inviting us to join this fantastic group! You can find links to everyone’s ideas at the bottom of this post.
If you’re visiting us from The Southern Crush at Home, didn’t Melanie have some amazing ideas for a pretty Easter table? She is always so inspiring to us.
We’re so happy you’ve stopped by to visit Simply2Moms. If you’re new around here, we’re Anne and AnnMarie, two moms who are lucky enough to be besties and neighbors.
That’s me, Anne, in the floral patterned shirt, and AnnMarie is wearing the chambray. Do you recognize that trellis? It’s the one that’s outside of Magnolia Table. We just took a super fun trip to Waco with our hubbies! If you get the chance to go, the restaurant was totally worth the wait.
But I digress!

My Favorite Ways to Decorate for Spring
The first spot that gets decorated for spring each year is my fireplace.
One thing you’ll notice as you take a look around is that a lot of the pieces I use will be able to stick around all the way through summer.
Once Easter is over, I’ll put away the bunnies and replace them with neutral pieces that’ll stay out until it’s time to pull out the pumpkins!
Ever since I painted the old marble surround with chalk paint a few years back, this area really has become the focal point in my home.
You won’t believe what it looked like before!
We also made the mantel a little bit wider with some simple changes so I have more options to decorate it.
If you ever get a chance to visit that area, be sure to check out Beth’s store because it’s ahhh-mazing!
I added a faux greenery stem to the giant beehive with longer pieces that spill over one side of it.
To balance out the brown beehive, I put a chunky brown basket on the opposite side of the mantel.
It has a faux boxwood topiary sitting inside it with this cute whitewashed wooden rabbit for a touch of spring.
The other side of the fireplace has a pitcher filled with my favorite faux tulips.
You won’t believe how realistic they look in real life!
They even feel like real tulips.
A cute little moss bunny adds a little touch of whimsy.
A Simple Spring Centerpiece
This simple centerpiece is anchored with a large round wood tray I made at an AR Workshop.
On top, I have a small arrangement of faux ferns and allium, a spring-scented candle on top of a distressed wood pedestal, and a decorative ceramic orb.
You can see my large brown leather sectional behind the centerpiece.
It might not be the most stylish of couches, but it’s so comfortable, and our whole family loves to pile on and watch movies.
I like to soften it with lots of light-colored pillows and throws.
Oh, and let me introduce you to my sweet kitty, Bella!
She insisted on hanging around while I was taking pictures.
Bella and her little brother and sister are the reason we have leather furniture in my house…
They have a not-so-nice habit of scratching upholstered furnishings. Ugh.
Fortunately, they’re super sweet, and leather furniture holds up just fine!
The bee-print pillow covers are one of my favorite ways to brighten things up for spring.
My family room is separated from the kitchen with a half wall anchored by a pillar.
I hung a plate rack on the pillar when we moved in and it’s such a simple spot to add seasonal touches.
You can really get creative with plate racks!
I’ve used it to display everything from wreaths, to photo frames, plus a variety of patterned plates over the years.
Just beyond that pillar is my second favorite spot to decorate each season: the large shelving unit we built a few years ago.
How to Give Shelves a Spring Vibe
When I change up decorations for the seasons, I like to pick an overall color scheme to use throughout the lower level of my home.
You’ll always find lots of greenery.
In the past, I’ve included lots of pewter items.
One year I used lots of cheery yellow florals.
This year I decided on a really natural look with lots of greens, whites, and wood accents.
There’s a lot of texture to keep it visually interesting.
I tried to create visual triangles with several types of items.
Then, I created mini vignettes within each shelf.
There were a few times when I ended up moving an entire vignette to a different shelf to get everything balanced!
Here’s a closer look at the shelves.
