Spring is one of my favorite times of year; it is symbolic of renewal, transformation and rejuvenation. This year I am experiencing all of those things. Today I awoke with a renewed sense of hope and determination to continue on the positive path. In the past few days I’ve seen a number of butterflies flutter across my path. I welcome the butterfly with a smile because it’s presence is a sure sign of major transformation aka Spring.
I decided my dining room could use a lot of rejuvenation. It had been stagnating in clutter, disorganization and neglected plants. I moved out the clutter and dead plants. As I began organizing my dining area I felt inspired and hopeful.
Easter sneaks up on me every year; I asked my BFF and she told me it is next weekend! WHAT THE HECK?! Where has the time gone? At least I ‘d be semi proactive when I’d picked up the cutest, chicest Easter plates from Home Goods a few months ago. I scored four dinner plates but only found two of the desert or salad plates. This actually worked well because I used the dinner plates for the dining room table and the salad plates for the breakfast bar. I need a little something to finish this off, but I like how the napkin pops between the gold dinner plate and the smaller Easter plate.
I was trying to work the pretty blush Peony and Magnolia stems into the vignette. These lovelies are from Walmart (yes ma’am I tells no lie I was shocked too…)
AAAAnd inspiration struck! I had been stashing my wine corks in a glass vase from an abandoned DIY projected. I dumped the wine corks, the Magnolia and Peonies look amazing! **pops collar**
Bunnies are big in my home for the Spring season. This amazingly precious curly hair Bunny is from Pier 1. Let me tell you when I saw Jack (so I’m calling him Jack) I was instantly in love. I waited and finally a discount code appeared in my Facebook offers. I bee-lined right on over to Pier 1 and brought Jack home. I’d shared a few other bunnies around the house on my Instagram page this past week, I was getting in the spirit.
This guy (he hasn’t told me what to call him yet) I rescued from Ross, spotted after Jack, another a curly haired wabbit (in my Elmer Fudd voice). I decided to add the specked eggs to this glass dome with the copper wrapped wood base. I like how it turned out, another moment of inspo…
I enjoyed reacquainting myself with my dining room and breathing life back into it. For far too long it has served only as a pass through from the living room to the kitchen, the more clutter I removed the higher my spirits lifted. Here are some more pics of the dining room table. The lemon tree is another Ross find. I am smitten with it, I popped it into the gold hammered glass vase from Target (because the pot it’s in is beyond ugly…)
This is probably the simplest place-setting I’ve ever done but it is cheery, bright, and happy. It is understated but still makes an impact.
Thanks for dropping in, I hope you enjoyed the Bunny Business and had a wonderful Palm Sunday!
