I feel slightly hypocritical posting about Spring while we are still in February. I love winter weather (at least the kind we get in the South) and try very hard to be content with whatever season we are experiencing. However, last weekend I became suddenly and significantly sick of my living room/kitchen decor. It was still bearing the dark reds and heavy linens of winter with a few Valentines Day pieces here and there. We have icy patches left from last Tuesday and I saw a few flurries on Saturday…I’m fine with that. I just needed to lighten things up on the inside!
If you’ve been stuck inside with #snowmageddon, perhaps you know how I felt. After perusing the pages of the Spring Pottery Barn catalog, I knew what I wanted to do. Not only did I freshen up the rest of my home decor (here and there), I created a spring tablescape like I’d seen in the PB catalog. I grabbed a $6 bouquet of white spring blooms from Ingles and added it to what I already had on hand and came up with this…
I don’t have china, so I dressed up my everyday white dishes with white damask napkins, antique green bowls and gold rimmed salad plates.
I noticed several centerpieces in the PB catalog that were simple bouquets in clear vases. My centerpiece is certainly simple, but I like it! The little bunny came from Walgreens’s post-Easter clearance last year! I couldn’t wait to pull him out this Spring!
I reluctantly put the dishes and linens away after taking these pictures – but I know how the table will be set for Sunday lunch sometime soon. My blooms and the bunny are still on the table, though!
