My motivation for more Spring decorating arrived at the exact time the chilly rainy weather finally left us here in Tennessee! There’s nothing like fresh sunshine to totally change a mood, so I have been busy making few fresh changes to the formal living room, which we call the Piano Room at our house. I mixed a few things I already had with a few new finds and here’s how it’s currently looking…
I took down my favorite round mirror and the garland that I had on this mantle for Christmas, and started over with this rectangular mirror I keep in storage. One of the new things I found was this cute wreath from Hobby Lobby in a cute shade of spring green.
Because I had a farmhouse chic design in mind for this space for spring, I decided to add this cute “welcome” script (also from Hob Lob) onto the wreath. I just used a little string to tie it on.
I love to hang wreaths on mirrors, and I usually do it with ribbon. I found this cute ticking stripe ribbon on closeout, also at Hobby Lobby, but I found a similar one online here…
I use basic packing tape to attach it to the back of the mirror and it hangs perfectly!
Next, I put together a tall floral arrangement that was actually so simple it could hardly be called an arrangement. I just chose some of these miniature snowball white hydrangeas and a couple other thin branches. Because I was planning to use a clear glass vase for this one, I wanted the stems to look natural as well, so I chose these that have natural-looking brown stems.
I tried a couple of my vases to figure out which one was the correct scale for this mantle and for these stems, and I chose this one. Then, I simply placed the hydrangea stems in first.
Then, to add just a little more filler and texture, I added the thin branches.
I just filled in the blank spaces by spreading the little stems on each of the branches. You’ll notice I leave all tags on my stems until I know I like the arrangement! Sometimes you just can’t tell how you’ll like the different stems until you try them together.
After the arrangement, I finished the mantle with a couple of my cloches over a moss bunny I had and a little urn with a nest.
I added a little pop of pink to this spring feel with these cute tassel pillows I also found at Hobby Lobby!
And if you follow my Instagram, you may have already seen that I moved my green garland from the mantle to the banister! I never thought about doing this for spring before, but I love it! You may remember when I first used this on my dining table HERE.
Another of my favorites for Spring are these little feather ducks which came from one of my favorite local shops a couple years back.
