March has arrived and with it, my desire for Spring, flowers, and warmer temperatures!
Unfortunately, we are still in a deep freeze here in the Southern part of Missouri, with snow on the ground and freezing temperatures.
But that hasn’t stopped me from bringing bits of Spring into our family room with a Spring coffee table vignette.
Today, I’m joining a fabulous group of friends for the Styled & Set Spring blog hop hosted by my sweet friend Lory of Designthusiasm!

There’s no simpler way to bring Spring touches into a room than a very simple coffee table vignette.
Styling a coffee table is very easy! All you need is a pretty tray, books, flowers, and a few interesting accessories.
For our Spring coffee table in the family room, I used a large silver tray that I’ve had forever. It’s been used in a lot of different areas and it’s large size makes it the perfect foundation piece for our Spring vignette.
I placed a stack of decorating books on one side, and on top is a cement urn filled with Spring flowers.
Fresh flowers are hard to find around here while we’re still experiencing our cold weather, so I used faux flowers.
The faux flowers of today are so realistic that it’s hard to tell that they aren’t the real deal. Once warmer weather arrives and fresh flowers are abundant, it will be easy to swap out the faux blooms for real ones.
An antique ironstone compote topped with a large grapevine bird’s nest is placed on the other side of the tray.
Inside the nest are moss covered eggs that I made a couple of days ago. They were so simple to make, and I’ll be showing the tutorial on them in a couple of days.
Sitting in front of the compote are a couple of moss covered birds and a smaller nest with egg.
I love the texture of the moss and grapevine, and the greenery is the perfect compliment for the flowers. Adding accessories in different heights will create visual interest and keep the eye moving.
I also changed out the slipcovers on the IKEA sofas. The sofas have been wearing linen slipcovers in an oatmeal color for Winter, but for Spring, I changed them back to the white slipcovers.
Everything in the family room looks so bright and cheery now, ready for the arrival of Spring! I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it’s right around the corner!
