Today I am sharing spring decorating in the kitchen. See how I used vintage pieces, flowers and artwork to lighten up our kitchen for spring without spending a dime!

I am excited to be hosting the Celebrating Spring Home Tour again.
Today and tomorrow, I will be joining 20 blogging friends sharing our homes decorated for spring.
I am always so impressed with these talented bloggers and it’s an honor to have them be part of this fun tour.
Did you see Kate from Southern Home and Hospitality‘s Easter decor?
Gorgeous as always, she’s got great style!
You’ll find so much inspiration over the next two days so be sure to visit all the blogs at the bottom of this post.
Simple Cottage Style Spring decorating
Our living room, dining area, and kitchen are all one large space so I like to keep the decor consistent throughout the space.
Decorating the Kitchen Island
Our new shiplap kitchen island is the first thing you see when you walk into our home.
It gets cluttered easily, I feel like I spend a lot of time clearing off mail, magazines, and general miscellaneous items that make the entire space look messy.
When decorating the island, I like to use one tray with a few accessories.
The clutter still piles up but it looks nice for a little while!
If you have any tips for keeping a kitchen island clear, please leave a comment. I would love to hear your ideas!
Spring decorating isn’t complete without a bunch of daffodils!
I actually made this bouquet as a sample for my flower farm bouquets.
I always do a “test run” and adjust until it’s the way I want it.
Do you see the little Lady Banks roses in there? They are so sweet and add a touch of whimsy to this bouquet.
Open Kitchen Shelves
I decorated our open kitchen shelves with family heirlooms and vintage dishes.
You can see more of our open kitchen shelving decorations in my Spring Decorating Using Vintage Dishes post.

Countertop Spring Decor
I cleared everything off our counters to start with a clean slate.
Do you do that? Clear everything away before decorating?
I like to start with an empty space and slowly add accessories.
The first thing I added was this beautiful sunrise beach scene my sister painted for me last year.
She named it Turtle Patrol and was inspired by pics I have sent her while on sea turtle patrol in the early mornings.
I am so impressed with her painting skills! You can see more of her paintings on the Dizzy Paintbrush Instagram page.
In front of the painting, is our basket of fresh eggs that is always on the counter.
I get them from my neighbor who has a few hens.
She knows I love all the different colors so she always makes sure I get a variety.
Keeping the vintage dishes theme going, I added this cute creamer and sugar dish set.
I’ve never actually used either of these but they are so pretty and I love the soft colors and floral patterns.
On the other side of the sink, I keep a little lamp in a basket.
Since the open shelves have the decorating vintage dishes on them, I put our everyday Pottery Barn white dishes in the basket.
A pale blue C for our last name is supposed to be hiding the cord to the lamp, but not doing a great job!
Next to the stove is our crock of wooden cooking tools and a couple of canisters.
That’s it for our spring decorating in the kitchen.
