Spring Sidetable Vignette

With our backyard still buried in snow
and snow in the forecast
for almost every day
I needed to put some touches
of spring around the house.

We have a little table that sits between
our chairs and I decided to cover it
with a spring cloth.
I just love the flowers on it.

We use this table to charge our devices
and the cords can be messy looking.

But we pull them through the base of our vintage lamp
and can tuck them away
when we don't need them.

I added a vase
with some pussy willows
and greenery.

And a little white bird.

On the other side of the lamp
I added a porcelain lily
and filled it with some
colored glass painted eggs.

Every spring we have an owl
that comes to our neighborhood
so I included my white porcelain owl
in my spring décor.

Our little Storm Glass
is fun to watch
and surprising in how accurate it is.

All put together our little side table
is ready for spring
even if it doesn't seem like it outdoors quite yet.

Simple Spring Tablescape

Sometimes it is nice to have a simple little tablescape.

For this tablescape I started off with one of my favorite
pale green tablecloths
and a crocheted linen
given to me as a gift.

A simple white jug
with pale green and white tulips.
As much as I adore fresh flowers
there are too many people in our house
with allergies so I try to get
good quality fake flowers.

Add my everyday dishes.

And some floral napkins
that were gifted to me
and a pale green napkin ring.

A vintage glass with a hint of pink around the bottom is added.

And it is a quick and simple everyday table
with a touch of spring.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
