12 Aug Fresh mornings and new growth, we’re ready to order in the taste of Spring.
There’s a change in the air, the mornings are starting to get lighter and it feels like we could soon be out of hibernation. Time to switch things up with springtime inspiration to breathe sunshine into the month.
Usher in the season with a good refresh. Whether it’s sprucing up the decor in a room, decluttering the kids’ wardrobes, trying a new dish or getting out in the garden, a fresh perspective is just the ticket to brighten every day.
Colour me spring
For the home or for a thoughtful gift, flowers are such an uplifting idea and spring’s bouquet is beautifully cheerful. Golden daffs, fragrant lilies, sweet peas and more, order up the freshest market blooms from our very own Flower Merchants or Coles.
Home styling inspo
Whilst we might not be able to browse our favourite shops in real life, there’s something to be said for taking a little time to yourself with a good magazine and a cuppa or glass of something chilled. Check out new decor reads at Norwest News and after hour beverages Liquorland.
A salad for all seasons
A Pumpkin & Feta salad is a quick and versatile family favourite. It makes for a satisfying meal on its own or plates perfectly with a spring BBQ. There are so many variations, but with a cozy pumpkin base, this salad really is like a hug in a bowl.
The topline on this one is to toss cubes of cooled, roasted pumpkin together with tangy feta, fresh baby spinach leaves and a simple dressing. There are so many variations on this salad, there’s a great Coles recipe here. And if you’d like to add on, consider mixing through half a cup of pomegranate seeds at the end for an extra zingy burst. Serve this salad at room temperature, delicious!
Barbie on the breeze
Change of season means more opportunities to eat al fresco. And whether that’s the back garden or the balcony, there’s something about the scent of BBQ’d meats and seafood that says the clouds are lifting. Select your grilling cuts with help from the experts at Coles. For the best from the sea, head over to the friendly team at Norwest Fresh Seafood. They’ll share advice on succulent fish for the barbie and the ultimate marinade for prawns.
Whatever your flavour, enjoy the new season!
