Today I’m taking you with me as I decorate the homestead for spring. I am pretty much a minimalist at this time of year though, so when I say “decorate” it’s not exactly your average trip to the craft or antique shop for home decor.

So come along for a minimalist spring farmhouse home tour.[Read more…] about Minimalist Spring Farmhouse Home Tour Welcome to the Homestead!
To kick off the spring season, we hosted a family brunch. So I got the table ready in the most simple form, like I normally do. Fresh flowers (tulips!), a beige and lavender table runner handmade by a local farm to us, and a sweet simple plate setting. I have this way of folding napkins that I really like. You basically take a square cloth napkin and fold it in half twice to form a triangle, and then tuck both corners inward (see tutorial below). Then you have the option of adding silverware, small flowers, or in this case I added some Easter straw “bedding” for spring. I couldn’t wait for my family to come over and see our spring brunch table![Read more…] about 5 Simple Spring Brunch Table Ideas
