This year I decided to go natural with my mantel display as I really wanted a woodland vibe. Nature is filled with texture so I added tons and tons of texture along with somewhat of an avian theme!!!
I used two wreaths, one grapevine and the other is a darling egg wreath I picked up a few years ago. I just bound them together using the wire from the egg wreath. The accent wicker balls or orbs were only $1.29 each and the silver compote, $14.99...both were purchased from the Christmas Tree Shop. The compote adds a little bling don't you think, to the otherwise neutral display.
Two of my new rush place mats are placed adjacent to the wreath...the texture adds interest to the back drop. (It also makes it much easier for photographing as well!) The faux spring greens look like garland and add color and texture to the display.
The two little chippy chicks are a recent purchase from Home Goods. Gosh I love that store!!!
I removed the fire screen since we won't be burning any wood as the weather warms up, and tucked some vintage suitcases inside the fireplace opening.
I only have a few more things to do to complete my spring decorating. How about you...what do you do to prepare for the warmer season ahead?
