Welcome To The Blogger’s Best Spring Home Tour!
Hi everyone! Today is the first day of the Blogger’s Best Spring Home Tour hosted by Kelly from The Tattered Pew and Mansa from This is Simplicite. I’m joining so many incredible bloggers this week as we open our doors and give you all a tour of our Spring homes.
Each day 6 bloggers will be sharing their beautiful homes to give you some Spring inspiration!
You can find each link at the end of this post.
If you are hopping over from Kim’s tour at Shiplap And Shells isn’t her home the absolute cutest!! Did you know she’s in the new Cottage Style (Better Homes & Gardens) Magazine that just hit the shelves?? How cool is that??!!
If it’s your first time here, I’m Jennifer and I’m on the opposite coast from Kim in New Hampshire. I live in the seacoast area with my husband and sons. We both have the love of the ocean, gardening, and decorating!
Spring Home Tour
Well, I made it through another New England winter. It’s amazing, as soon as I feel that first Spring breeze I forget about all those cold, dark winter days!!
I have to make a confession…I start bringing out Spring decor and making new Spring crafts while there is still snow on the ground. It helps chase away the Winter blues.

In my living room I added a few little touches of Spring. On my coffee table I popped my favorite faux tulips in a thrifted pitcher. I love a good thrift store bargain and this pitcher was $3.
My little DIY cement bunnies found a home in this tray along with my ivy that I started from a cutting. Ivy is so funny, one day it’s a tiny cutting and then the next time you look it’s a sprawling plant.
I have a small house and love multi-functional pieces that I can use for hidden storage. My Better Homes and Gardens Cube Organizers hide a whole lotta toys!! By day I have a small home daycare and the bins are the best for organizing and hiding toys.
Shop My Living Room
This is a great spot for some of my houseplants. They thrive with the bright morning sun coming through my big picture window,
A perfect spot to bring in a little bit of Spring is on my entryway table. After I put my Christmas decor away, I couldn’t wait to hang up this gorgeous mirror that I bought at the Vintage Bazzar New England.
What is more Spring-y in New Hampshire than blooming forsythia?? I cut a few branches from my bush and brought them inside to force.
Have you ever forced branches before? It’s a wonderful way to get a jump on the season and bring a little color into your home…for free!! All you have to do is clip a few flowering branches and put in water and be patient.
The vases were thrift store finds that I made over. Check out the before&after right HERE.
I cut these branches a few weeks ago and they have been blooming for 2 weeks so far!

You can grab my Spring printable HERE to make your own Spring sign.
Who else is a tulip fanatic?? I thought so! It will be awhile before my happy little tulips start popping up in my garden but for now I’ll enjoy them in my kitchen!!
There’s nothing like a vase of flowers to brighten up a space! (Even if they are faux…but c’mon aren’t these real looking!!)
My green dining table is the perfect spot for a pretty Spring tablescape!
I combined a mix of greens, whites, and natural elements on my table.
Always on the hunt for a bargain; I scored the white round Better Homes and Gardens dinner plates on cleareance for 80¢ each!! They work so well with my other white dining pieces.
Shop My Kitchen
The corner kitchen hutch (Paint color is SW Coriander & Olive) is all dressed up for Spring!
The hutch was original to this house and I found it in the basement when we moved in. I’ve painted it a few different colors so far…but I really love this green! You can see the evolution of this piece here.
I filled a pedastal bowl with painted speckled eggs and grapevine to look like a bird’s nest.
I have a quick video to show you how I did it!
Do you like to mix vintage and new pieces as much as I do? I thrifted the silver tray for $2! The DIY moss ball topiaries I made last month have found a new home in my kitchen hutch.
To make your own topiaries
The perfect backdrop for a Spring kitchen; colorful botanical prints. Even on a dreary day they brighten up my kitchen! You can download the botanicals HERE and make your own gallery wall (or even just a couple to cheer up your home too!) Plus, see how much this space has changed in the past couple of years!!
