Do you love to decorate with any family treasures or memorable pieces as a part of your seasonal decor? Let me share a few of my thoughts on seasonal specific decorating.
I mentioned in a post the other day that my mom always put out her adorable ceramic bunnies every spring. They were often used as decor on our Easter table! My husband knew how much I loved the bunny tradition and bought me these years ago so that we could carry on the tradition with our family. I love them so much! They’ve come along with us to every home we’ve moved to since, I would never let them go!
There’s something so special about decor that tells our story and offers a sense of tradition and meaning for your family. I’m all for using organic seasonal decor and having generic pieces that can be used all year round, of course, that sure makes it easy! But if everything is natural or generic, it may look beautiful but nothing will feel particularly special to you.
Of course, gathering too many “special to you” items creates a real storage problem! I’ve gone through that recently with our last few moves. Each time we move I have let go of more, but it can be an ongoing process to decide what to keep and what to let go of.
If it’s difficult for you to let go of things that you like, or if you have limited space to keep things organized, make things simple and choose one seasonal specific decor item for spring. Ideally choose something that already has (or represents) a story or history with your family, or one that could become a memorable piece you want to use going forward to inspire your children or grandchildren with a sense of tradition. Choosing an item that can be set on a mantel or a table every spring makes it easy to use!
Let the other “pretty things” go to a new family to enjoy.
