Natural and Textured Easter Mantel

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?

  1. Very pretty! Love the little birds and the vintage suitcase :)

  2. That looks like a room I would like to sink down into a chair there with a cup of coffee and a good book! The mantle looks great- xo Diana

  3. Barbara, I love your spring mantel! The elements work together beautifully to create a natural and charming vignette. Your home is so warm and inviting... I love it!

  4. I love the mantle. "It looks so warm and inviting. I haven't really decided yet on spring decorating. As soon as Easter is over will begin my spring look. I have been in the yard most of the time planting, cutting and re-arranging.
    Have a great weekend.

  5. Your mantel looks so fresh for spring. I love the natural look especially and the chicks are a nice addition. Very nice.

  6. Barbara! I love this! I keep putting up the same seasonal stuff from the year before and I just saw your post. I just read another post and she just bought the same bird!!!! Which I saw and passed by. I am going to redo the top of my hutch.

    I would love for you to do a guest post on this post next week! Any interest, email me! xo, laura@imnotatrophywife.com

  12. So wonderfully pulled together. Beautiful!

  13. Perfection!
    I just found you via Savvy Southern Style Wow Us Wednesdays.
    I am an earth tone woodland girl at heart myself, regardless of the season. The colors just make me feel so calm and warm. Your mantel is nudging me to add some greenery to mine. I think I may have gone a little too sparse. Off I go to find something that will work.
    Thanks for sharing.

  14. So great looking Barbara! All the textures and natural elements are wonderful! I bought one of those hopping bunnies too, it's been fun seeing them popping up everywhere! Happy Easter, your mantle is beautiful!

  15. Pretty and charming, love the textures and the silver adds a stately touch to the woodsy/avian theme.
