Hi, everyone! Although we've still had snow as recently as last week, it's officially spring so I'm going with it!
I've really been loving soft greens and blues lately; they feel so fresh and 'spring-y' to me. So for my spring mantel I decided to add some color! I took my inspiration from these botanical prints that I got a couple of months ago. You may remember them from here.
I kept them in this chippy frame, but displayed them a bit differently than before.
From my basement I unearthed this stash of little glass bottles that I've had forever, and grouped them in front of the frame. The aqua blue and green ones add such a pretty hint of color.
To the left I stacked some old books and topped them with my silver candleabra. Next to that is a green seltzer bottle...
To the right I placed my silver monogrammed sugar bowl...
to which I added some moss and faux blue and green speckled eggs.
Next to that I placed my large silver urn...
...which is holding a topiary.
I kept up the burlap banner, and here is the finished mantel...
I tried to tie the colors together in a subtle way...
...so that the effect would be calming but still say 'spring'.
I love my neutrals, but this feels like a breath of fresh air to me!
Now I just wish that the weather would say 'spring' too! ;)
Thanks so much for stopping by...have a wonderful day!
