Spring Living Room Tour

springtour2017-6

Spring has sprung at my house, and my inspiration this year was gardening.  Planting flowers, pots and greenery just says spring. I started with the mantel, I have all these glass vases and jugs and I knew I wanted to display them.  First they were just placed up there with the floral stems, but they seemed to lack purpose. Gathering them in the crate made a more interesting vignette.

These pots were all on my front porch.  I have previously “aged” some of them with chalk paint. You can find that little tutorial here . I gathered the pots together and placed them as if they were ready to be filled with tulips and daisies.  I wanted it to feel like a potting bench.

The seltzer bottle and vintage vase filled with stems gives more of a farmhouse feel. I added moss spheres and some extra greenery because spring greens really give the feeling of life and new beginnings.

Last I draped some wood beads over the crate.  It just seemed to finish off the scene.

Since the mantel is so busy and full of potting bench goodness, I wanted to keep the shelves fairly simple and along the same theme.

I do not normally decorate my table, but I realized with my spring mantel was lacking an Easter feel.   I received some very special Christ centered decorations at Christmas from Ever Thine Home and I was so excited to use them for Easter as well.  Also, my youngest daughter convinced me to buy some adorable gold bunnies, so they needed to be displayed.

Since we eat at this table regularly,  and I have very young guests, I scrunched up a table runner into the middle of the table.  I love how the pattern matches the grain sack painted on my shelves and the scrunching gave so many nooks and crannies to stick and display items.

I started by placing the stands from Ever Thine Home.  There are six displays of His Savior names included in this set.  And they attach to these darling display stands.  I will link the source at the end of this post. Then I centered the candles sticks between and shimmied those modern bunnies into the table runner.

I wanted to carry the potting bench theme over to the table as well.  Placing more Terra Cotta pots and spheres onto the runner.

Finally I stuck some floral stems at either side to give the display a little color.

All set for Easter Brunch, I only have to add place settings and gather the family together.

I also like how the mantel will carry into May.  After all; April showers bring May flowers. I hope you enjoyed this little spring refresh.  Hope you’ll come visit again.
