That season called Sprinter

Pin It

You maybe have never heard of our fifth season called Sprinter. You know it is that window in late February/early March when the days are noticably longer, the temps not quite so cold, and alas, you even hear bird chirping. That my friends is called Sprinter. Somewhere between the "I'm sick of winter and ready for Spring" season. How do you decorate for this?

Adding pops of green brightens

Well, by now we are all sick of the cute little snowmen and the pine cones and other wintery type home decor but it is a bit early to bring out the flowers and spring stuff. And if we see one more "Let it snow" yard sign....ugh!

The birds are back inside and out!

Using grains and berries
 are provide a natural touch
This is the perfect time to bring out natural elements and pops of Spring color without hitting too hard with the flowers and plants yet.

Natural elements that are
season indifferent work well.

Adding hints of color, especially the greens, yellows, and blues will give a nod to Spring and be good transitional elements.

So pack away those snowmen and pine cones and bring out your Sprinter stuff! Spring is on its way!
