How Do You Decorate a Spring Mantel?

There are SO many great ways to decorate your mantel for spring. Just adding a few pretty pieces can really make it stand out, and open up the rest of the living room. Using spring mantel garlands is a gorgeous way to brighten up your home. Spring mantels featuring a garland or banner look fantastic for the season! Try adding garlands with beautiful bright colors and flowers to really liven up the area.

A few other great fireplace mantel decorating ideas for spring are:

1- Cherry blossoms and a disco ball spring mantel: I know, it sounds like a totally strange combination! But trust me on this, the result is BEAUTIFUL! The classy cherry blossoms with the funky disco ball combination looks AMAZING on your mantel for spring. BONUS: Add a mirror nearby the disco ball for a reflective sparkle that brings even more light to your living room. (I did not have any extra room for mirror here-haha)! But you should try it out and see what I mean! These gleaming primrose mirrors from Anthropologie come in different sizes, so you can add one to your mantel, and get matching ones to put around the house. It adds space and depth to your beautiful spring décor!

I couldn’t find a disco ball for this year, so I used round artificial boxwood instead! I think it’s SO pretty with the floral and green elements. It gives the mantelpiece a nice springtime aesthetic!

Best Spring Color Scheme When Decorating Mantel 

Spring colors are my FAVORITE part about decorating for the season! It’s so beautiful when all of the Easter eggs, garlands, flowers, and everything are coordinated together in gorgeous spring colors. There are so many different color schemes you can choose from for spring! My personal favorite is the playful variety of yellow, purple, blue, pink, and green. This color scheme reminds me of fresh spring flowers! I love adding these beautiful colors to the mantel and around the house this time of year!

Spring Home Décor Trends 2021 

Some spring 2021 trends that you can incorporate into your home décor for the season include:

  • Vintage pieces: Chic vintage pieces are making a comeback! Using pretty, romantic vintage colors, like jade and rose, can bring a nice comforting feel to a room.
  • Books: Adding a few stacks of trendy books to your mantelpiece or coffee table can add a nice, put-together look that guests can also enjoy! Add these luxury stacked books for a classy feel, or this decorative book bundle – BONUS! It comes in different colors so you can mix and match and buy the bundle that works best with your spring décor!
  • Minimalism: This trend focuses more on simplifying the clutter with minimalist shapes and natural materials. Any stoneware or ceramic pieces that are in neutral colors and organic shapes are great for this trend, and bring a simplistic elegance to any room.
  • Natural earth tones: Adding items to your home in calming, earthy shades brings a “nature” feel to the room, like sage green, inky blue, and pale pink. Try adding pieces in these colors for a relaxing springtime environment. 
  • Live plants: More and more people are adding plants into the rooms in their homes for 2021. Beautiful live plants in large baskets or vases can help purify the air and freshen up the room while also bringing a more natural feel, like this blue and white lotus ginger jar. Or, set a few fresh flowers in these mason jars with LED fairy lights. These look GORGEOUS for outside décor, as well!
  • Round shapes: “Round” is a super popular trend right now for spring 2021! Rounded pillows, mirrors, rugs, frames, and other types of décor can make everything feel modern and wholesome, with softness and depth. 
  • Fluffy and fuzzy: Adding cozy cushions is great for any time of the year, really! But especially now since people are spending so much time at home, these comfort items have grown in popularity for spring 2021!

When decorating your home for spring, don’t forget about the outdoor areas!

  • Placing floral centerpieces on your outdoor tables for a pretty addition to a tablescape
