Spring finally made its way into my home. The pressure of everyone coming over for Easter put a fire under me to finish up all the little details. I figured I would share bits and pieces of the house in stages and today I wanted to share the entry table. As always, I like to keep things simple and light. This year I brought in more earthy elements with bits of twigs and moss.
I pretty much always stay in the same neutral color palette of soft greys, whites, and creams. I love burlap and linen and try to bring it in wherever I can. I weathered up a bunch of pieces so they would all tie in together. Added lots of moss, birds nests and butterflies.
I love birds and butterflies at Springtime. A little bird transfer adds just a bit of color and charm. I added topiaries all over the house to bring in a fresh garden feel.
I love a cloche and use them all year round. Everything always seems so much prettier under one. Little vintage birds sitting atop pieces of old candlesticks with just a bit of spanish moss. In the background are copies of vintage florals that I will share with you soon. A fun and easy way to add a bit of art to your space.
I couldn’t make up my mind this year about what kind of wreath I wanted to hang over the table. I think I just wanted to add something a little different and fresh and came up with the fun alternative. I took a few pieces of wood I had lying around, gave it a white wash, glued on an old vintage metal frame, also with a white wash, added moss in the background and added a few of my paper butterflies. Hung it from a bit of jute ribbon and that was it.
Here’s a closer look. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out, it was pretty simple and a little different.
I love creating my button messages and think I have one for each holiday and season. Vintage buttons look so pretty on burlap and even prettier in vintage frames.
Here are a few of the Easter eggs I created this year. The grey and white eggs are chalk painted® with Annie Sloans decorative paint in French Linen and Pure White, a little distressing, and a few bits and pieces. The center floral egg is decoupaged from a napkin that I found with a little white wash over the top.
I always love decorating eggs and look forward to coming up with a new design each year.I’d love to hear how how you decorate for Spring.
Well hoping you all enjoyed a peek into a bit of my Spring decor. I really enjoy decorating at this time of the year. Spring is so full of life and beauty. I look forward to sharing bits of the rest of the house with you all soon.
Hoping that you all have a beautiful day tomorrow.Thanks so much for stopping in.
