A Spring Dish Garden

Welcome to Floral Friday!

Today it is all about A Spring Dish Garden.

It all started with a new bowl by Pottery Barn.

The large double handle bowl from the Sonoma Vase Collection.

It reminded me a little bit of the French Tian bowl (without the handles).

The Tian  was mainly used to make Cassoulets, Ratatouille, and

storing fruits and vegetables to name a few of its purposes.

I placed this bowl on the dining room table knowing that I wanted to place some

pretty Spring flowers in it.

Simple Winter Mantel

Lately, it seems as though I have been decorating my mantel in a more simplistic fashion and for the most part, shopping the house keeping in mind that less is more. I have had these topiaries for many years and they tend to move around the house often. Today they have found their way to […]
