Mellow Yellow Springtime Décor & Gift Ideas

The Color Yellow Gives Us a Mellow Feeling!



Sunflower Photo Print on Amazon

When I think of Springtime, the primary color that comes to mind is 'yellow'. Sure, the new green buds appearing on the trees are noticed as a fore-bringer of Spring, but yellow stands out brightly in the early blooming Daffodils and the golden warming rays of the sun.

Spiff up your house for Spring with Yellow accessories, get a gift in Yellow for those Springtime holidays, birthdays or special occasions, or just add some touches of Yellow here and there for the warm, glowing, Spring feeling the color yellow gives you.


Sunny Yellow for your Wall


To me, nothing is sunnier looking than a Sunflower. Having a Sunflower on your wall is a welcome sign of Spring. Yellow is also a symbol of happiness and hope. No wonder sunny yellow makes you feel happy!


Yellow Bird Song by The Kingston Trio


The song "Yellow Bird", was first recorded in 1957 and is probably best known by Harry Belafonte, but my favorite version comes from MY folk music era by 'The Kingston Trio'. Listen to this mellow music while you browse these Yellow Gift Suggestions.





The chirping of birds is a sure sign of Spring!


Goldfinch Print

The Goldfinch is the state bird of New Jersey, Iowa, and Washington. It loves sunflower seeds at feeders.

This Goldfinch yellow bird photo print by SuRI Photography is available on Zazzle makes a lovely Springtime print for your wall.




Yellow in the Kitchen



Early Morning Coffee on the Deck

Nothing I like better in the Spring than being able to sit outside on the deck with my morning coffee.  The warm air with the scent of the springtime blossoms on the dogwood trees and the twittering of the birds is a very relaxing way to begin your day.


Start your Day with A Cup of Coffee or Tea

 

...In a sunny Sunflower Mug!

Having lived in Kansas (and married to a Kansas boy), Sunflowers have naturally become a favorite flower in my life and in my home.

This is such a bright & sunny start to my day to have my morning coffee in a Sunflower mug.  Available on Zazzle, this beautiful cup is created by Patti J. Adkins.

This is a quality velour half towel in soft yellow with bees and a honey pot that says "Happiness Is Homemade". The buckle is a cotton fabric with a small floral pattern in peach, yellow & green, with a lining of flannel to keep it rigid. It is topped with a peach button.

  5. Such cheery items and it brings thoughts of spring. The goldfinches at my feeder are still a very dull brownish color. Love it when they turn to the bright yellow. Thanks for sharing all the sunshine.
