Creating the Spring Mantel was next on the agenda
for Springifying the house.
I am anxious to decorate the porches for Spring;
however, the pollen has truly prevented me from doing that.
Hopefully in another week or so, I can beautify the porches for Spring.
In the meantime, with no pollen getting in the way,
I decorated the mantel for a Spring look using items that I already had in my home.
I began with the very colorful Ralph Lauren plates
and tucked a cobalt blue vase with a bird design (given to me by a friend) between them.
My tall candlestick which seems to be a staple on the mantel flank the plates.
Blue and white Ralph Lauren ginger jars are placed at each end of the mantel.
I guess I could say that I wanted a very symmetrical look for the mantel.
I have used these items on the mantel in many different ways and areas of the house.
Such versatile pieces.
Being that I still have my dried lavender roses on the coffee table,
I added some lavender African Violets to the antique French bread basket.
While in Myrtle Beach a couple weekends ago for my hubby’s first tournament of the year,
my friend Merry and I headed to Pottery Barn while the guys were playing in their practice rounds.
We scoured the clearance tables and I found this pretty blue throw on clearance. Perfect color!
I was very happy to see the throw blend so well with the blues in the room.
I think the coffee table will be next on the agenda to add a bit more Spring to the room.
Hope you all had great weekend and a Happy Easter.
My weekend was filled with hosting a dinner party, attending a going away party, and
cooking Easter dinner for my family. Truly a busy and fun filled weekend.
Have you started your Spring decorating yet?
Have a fabulous day!
