Spruce Up Outdoors After the Long Winter

Now that March is here, and snow is melting, our thoughts inevitably turn to spring. We imagine kids playing in the backyard, while guests lounge on the deck, enjoying music, conversation, a cocktail, or a cookout.

It’s no wonder if your outdoor space is lacking pizzazz after the long winter. Good thing it’s easy to transform it into an inviting oasis with some easy decorating ideas


One of the easiest solutions to creating a welcoming area is to decorate with a new outdoor rug.

Outdoor rugs bring some visual warmth to the space and make it easy to enjoy time outside in bare feet while preventing splinters from the deck.










Outdoor rugs are an affordable and effortless way to make the outdoors more chic. Choose a bright color or a bold pattern to incorporate some style.


Next, adorn your outside table with a new umbrella, along with some potted plants. Crocuses and pansies have a high tolerance for the cold nights that are still with us in March.












A few hurricane candle holders along with a string or two of twinkling white lights add the final touches to make the space come alive for night time entertaining.


These tips are all simple and inexpensive.

After the long winter we have all endured, embrace spring with an outdoor space you’ll look forward to spending time in with friends and family.
