Our Spring House Party is coming to a close, so now it's your turn to create, decorate, and celebrate spring in your home! Big thanks to our special guest, @Daniel Grady Faires for joining us this evening. If you were inspired by what you saw, be sure to leave comments and repin your favorites!
Buffet-style serving is a much more practical approach to outdoor entertaining than a formal spread. To play up the pastel blues and greens of this palette, serving dishes and tableware in the same shades were grouped together on the table--> hg.tv/y8wl
To keep party guests in good spirits, consider including a stylish, well-stocked bar cart. Since springtime fare is typically light and casual, simply stocking the cart with lush greenery and basic drinkware is all you need to do--> hg.tv/y8vu
Springtime soirees are meant to be light and airy, and that applies just as much to what's being served as the decor itself. When choosing fare for your gathering, consider light salads, fruits and cheeses which guests can easily serve themselves and even carry around--> hg.tv/y8v6
Yellowy greens, deep pinks and corals fit the season, yet are best used when toned down by a neutral. Here, those super saturated colors are balanced with taupe draperies and furniture--> hg.tv/y8un
An excellent way to add elegance to a spring event is by incorporating metallic accents. Here, brass and pewter were introduced with antique candlesticks and flatware featuring matte gold and polished silver tones--> hg.tv/y8ud
Now that we've finished our spring refresh, inside and out, let's wrap up with our best tips to throw your own fabulous spring party!
You can create privacy outdoors without building walls between you and your neighbors. This living wall of repurposed window box planters does double duty as a privacy barrier and a stylish conversation piece-->http://hg.tv/y8fk
After touching up the home's curb appeal, it was time to move to the backyard. Adding your own custom touch to a store bought item is a great way to achieve a designer look. For the deck of the HGTV Spring House, I retrofitted this outdoor coffee table into an herb garden-->http://hg.tv/y8b9
I gave visual appeal to the entry by framing the front door with tall greenery. This is especially effective for single story homes since the height and shape of the trees immediately draws the eye upward and make the entry seem grander-->http://hg.tv/y8r7
A simple way to bring in less permanent color is by adding window boxes. I painted these the same color as the door and window trim for consistency and to allow the gorgeous floral colors to shine through--> hg.tv/y8qd
I chose an olive green color for the trim and front door to make the exterior more cohesive and compliment the architectural elements of the home-->http://hg.tv/y8na
The HGTV Spring House is a cute cottage with lots of charm, but it needed some cheery color for spring. Here are a few simple curb appeal updates we did for the home that you can bring to your own space-->http://hg.tv/y8kf
Now let's move the party outside! @Daniel Grady Faires is here to share his DIY and design ideas from the HGTV Spring House.
Another simple way to refresh a room for spring is to change up your window treatments--> hg.tv/y83c
This small living room was enhanced and visually expanded by covering the walls, trim and ceiling in different shades of seaglass tones and using properly-scaled furniture--> hg.tv/y7vk
Wall upholstery is commonly used by designers to add pattern, texture and softness to a space. For a tailored look, add welt cord around the perimeter of upholstered walls. The welt will help frame the fabric and hide any pins which may peek through the top of attached fabric panels--> http://hg.tv/y7sa

You can also bring floral décor into your design with the use of bold and colorful patterns. Consider throw pillows to add fresh, new accent colors. Bonus: they're easily interchangeable with changing seasons--> hg.tv/y7pr
Cut tulips are a quick & easy way to bring instant spring color to your décor. The key to long-lasting tulips is choosing those in the bud stage, especially since the blooms are sure to take shape only hours after being placed in a vase--> hg.tv/y7ll
Hot Pink! Put a new twist on this super saturated hue by pairing it with more masculine greens such as artichoke or dark olive--> hg.tv/y7bv
Favorite keepsakes are displayed inside and on top of an antique wooden bookcase. Consider adding a whitewash finish to give existing pieces of furniture a bit of cottage flair--> hg.tv/y7i2
Mix medium and large scales when using classic patterns like embroidered florals, botanicals and gingham--> hg.tv/y7gp
