Living in Central New York, I get really excited when we have sunshine and 40 degree temperatures in January. This beautiful Saturday morning, I can see bits of grass peaking through as the snow melts!

That was enough inspiration for me to redo the mantel to bring a breath of spring inside!


Some white pottery and candleholders paired with some silk greenery and a tall vase with spring branches did the trick.


To keep the look simple, I removed a large piece of framed art, and have the vase and branches stand in as my focal point. Then I added a couple of vignettes on either side composed of white pottery, small ferns and succulents and a pair of beige and white candlesticks. The similar fern arrangements on either end will appeal to those who favor symmetry:)

Happy Spring!
