    Fresh flowers are such a big part of all the decor but how do keep the flowers fresh? I love them but can't keep them all the time. Are silk flowers acceptable?

  • SUITE14A

    I'd use nx them or use silk until company comes. I only buy flowers for guests, or when company comes. The only other alternative is to plant your own.

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

    great tips

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

    Love my bar cart too, Kayla. I also use a potting bench as an extra beverage or coffee station.

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

    Great tip! Plus, those snacks all pair perfectly with wine :) -- Kayla from HGTV.com

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

    These colors are a-ma-zing. Coral, fuchsia, mint - they look so gorgeous with all the natural greenery. -- Kayla from HGTV.com

    I love all colors its plays in my life!

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!

I turned this part of the deck into a rustic, peaceful retreat with the use of galvanized metal pipe and ready-made drapery panels-->http://hg.tv/y8gv

    Love the look of the soft drapery panels combined with the rustic wood tones and greenery. So pretty!

    Use white shower curtains! That way rain doesn't ruin them!

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

    I love the idea of a living wall instead of a fence. Gorgeous! -- Kayla from HGTV.com

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

    These window treatments scream spring!

    I just love the pattern and that the sun still peeks through. -- Kayla from HGTV.com

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

    I love the fabric on the windows!

    So smart! I love that the trim isn't a traditional white. -- Kayla from HGTV.com

    All the great accessories in this room pull the whole thing together so well.

  • Suzanne Brown

    Love the seating area.

Use mirrors to make a space feel open and airy. A twist on this idea is to choose architectural-style mirrors which create the illusion of an extra window or door-->http://hg.tv/y7ud

  • Rosheka Taylor

    Love the idea of the mirror, and it is gorgeous!

  • Kayla Kitts

    The palette makes this room feel so open and inviting. The splash of hot pink is perfect. -- Kayla from HGTV.com

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--> 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

    I agree, Shelley!

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

    This is a such a great way to take an old piece of furniture and make it cottage cool.

    Abbi McCollum I gave my first piece of thrifted furniture the whitewash finish...and did a horrible job. Now I know better ;)

Mix medium and large scales when using classic patterns like embroidered florals, botanicals and gingham--> hg.tv/y7gp
