A touch of Spring in the dining room was on the agenda as my
first Spring project this year.
I had done a moss project this past summer and created another one
that coordinated well with the items on the dining room table.
Last summer I covered a flameless candle with moss for some interesting texture.
You obviously do not want to use a regular candle due to the flammability of the moss.
A bunny dessert plate by Pottery Barn is a great way to display the candle.
Truly adds a sense of whimsy.
I have used this bunny dessert in many ways other than dessert.
The centerpiece vignette actually began with my Franciscan/Johnson Brothers salad plates.
The carrot plate has always been my favorite.
A pepper shaker is placed on the dish for a little embellishment.
Rather than a typical runner, I layered three napkins
in a diamond pattern in the middle of the table.
The mate of the salt shaker rests on the other plates,
with another one of my favorites, the radishes design.
As I previously stated, I covered another item in moss for the table,
this is a peek of the back side of it.
I covered something with moss to contain these:
When I placed the tulips in a crystal vase,
it seemed like something just wasn’t right.
I looked over at the covered candles and had the epiphany.
Cover it with moss!
I had a bag of regular moss on hand,
and hot glued it to an inexpensive glass vase.
I would recommend that you use sheet moss as it is mush easier to apply.
A raffia bow is added for additional color and texture.
I am happy with my very first Spring centerpiece/vignette
in the dining room.
It evolved gaining inspiration
from items that I gathered from my stash.
Well, other than the $4.99 bunch of pretty tulips from Trader Joe’s.
Can’t get any better than beautiful tulips and moss!
Have a most beautiful day!
