Baskets for Spring Door Decor

I've slowly been putting "Winter" away, and bringing "Spring" into the house this last week. After Christmas I keep some of my winter faux greenery out as a backdrop and base for winter flower arrangements, and in baskets. Since snow covered trees and evergreens have been about the only landscape in sight, I've enjoyed my transition time from Christmas to Spring. But now that the sun is shining and the thermometer is going to be in the 50's and 60's we have a good chance that the worst of winter is behind us.

I'd been waiting for a little warmer day, to rework my front door flower basket. I enjoy changing it out for each season/and or Holiday to keep it current. After Christmas I had some faux evergreens, Holly, and a few Hydrangeas mixed in with my "Burberry look" wired ribbon. I've opted for a basket as door decor here at the new house. We have a leaded glass door and I prefer to have a little "visual deterrent" for door bell ringers. We're not too far from the street so I don't want to be on display in the evening.

Hubbs informed me that I still have a bunch of tubs and boxes with Holiday decor and faux flowers at the storage units. For some reason they are last on his list of must haves to bring over. If I'm not there directing traffic, they don't get any priority. fine. I'll just go buy some fresh new stems and foliage.

Actually, everything in this basket has been used many times before, except for the burlap checked ribbon that I found a few weeks ago. I love using Hydrangeas no matter what the season. They're pretty versatile, and look appropriate for year round floral displays. I use the greens and whites for Spring, and then as the year progresses I use the darker and more muted shades.

Here it is on the gray front door. 
It's a pretty full basket, 
now if I can just keep the birds from nesting here it will be good.

Here are a few inspriation images of Baskets for Spring

Thanks for letting me share a little Spring Inspiration.
Nothing like a Spring Wreath or Door Basket
 to get you in an optimistic mood!
If you have Spring flowers on your door,
surely the real thing won't be far behind!
