How to Have a Fun Spring

There are a number of different fun events you can do in the spring, but before you can really have a fun time, you’ve got to make the transition from winter to spring.  What all does this entail?  Mostly it means it’s time for some spring cleaning!  Here are a few different chores you might want to do so you can get the work out of the way and have a fun spring.

While it’s not everyone’s favorite activity, spring cleaning needs to be done.  The first step in the process is to put away all of your winter decorations, blankets and clothes to make room for your spring items.  There’s no need to have a heavy blanket on your bed, for example.  You also want to make your home look more spring-like: put up your bright, cheery decorations in place of the snowmen and other winter items.

For those who love clothes, it’s time to get out those great spring outfits that look so good on you!  You can box up the scarves and heavy sweaters for another year.  Did you find some spring clothing you didn’t wear last year or the year before?  Donate these gently used items to a local charity.  Do the same with any winter clothes that don’t fit quite right anymore.  Plus, you can use this as an excuse to go buy a new outfit or two.

If you’ve got the time, give your whole house this treatment.  If you haven’t used an item in over a year and can’t truly see yourself using it within a year, get rid of it.  Get rid of anything that seems like it’s just taking up space.  You’ll feel better after purging all these unnecessary items from your life.  Of course, some things get a pass, such as family heirlooms and one-of-a-kind items.

Once you’ve done the inside, it’s time to do the outside.  Following the winter months, homes usually need a few minor repairs.  The gutters may be full of gunk, you might need to do a little painting, and your flowerbeds will need to be cleaned out. 

Finally, to make your winter to summer transition complete, you need a bright bouquet of spring flowers!  We can take care of that!  Order your spring flowers in Houston, Texas, today!
