Today, I’m joining a talented group of friends for a SPRING Home Tour and Design Party! So be sure and scroll all the way to the bottom to find links to their pages!
I’m sharing the touches of Spring in our dining room, and it was really easy.
I used what I already had, and the only thing I purchased was some grocery store flowers. Very simple and easy.
With all of my time being consumed with the renovation of the foyer, I find that simple decorating works best for me these days.
There just aren’t enough hours in the day!
I pulled out all of my bird’s nests and little faux birds. I apparently have amassed quite a collection of them over the years, because when I pulled them out of my storage box, there was more than I realized!
I had been toying with an idea of building a large nest and sitting it in an urn. I had an old grapevine wreath that I thought would work to make the nest, so I took it apart and worked with it until I had a “nest” shape.
I grabbed a pronged limb from the yard, stuck it in some styrofoam that was placed in the bottom of the urn. I covered the foam with spanish moss and added a couple of faux eggs.
I then perched my big grapevine nest in the fork of the branch, added more spanish moss and eggs, and then perched two little birds at the top.
And voila! An oversized bird’s nest!
I love it so much, that it may have to stay displayed all summer!
Hubby brought home some grocery store flowers and I added them to an urn and some of my ironstone for the center of the table.
I added preserved moss into small ironstone bowls and topped each one with a colored egg, perfect for each place setting.
If I were hosting the Easter meal, I would personalize each egg with the name of the person sitting there, but thankfully, I have a wonderful sister that always hosts holiday meals at her home….which is wonderful, because she is a fabulous cook!
More nests and birds were scattered in a few more places….you can probably spy them in the photos.
And of course, I had to use this little white lamb planter that I found at an estate sale not long ago.
He’s perfect for holding silverware.
Of course, my Spring decorating wouldn’t be complete without decorating our french blue buffet, which sits in our kitchen/breakfast room.
So there you have it, my version of simple Spring decorating!
I’m taking a few days off to relax, and do nothing. Hope you have a fabulous Easter weekend filled with love, laughter, and family…..and good food!
Please take a moment to visit the other ladies and their beautiful homes!
