Now that my dining room is officially transformed into a sitting room, it’s time to start turning the living room into the dining room. Next steps are painting the walls, fixing the chipped up floor, and changing some of the wall decor. Since I don’t want the room to look too sparse in the interim, I decided to create a spring vignette on my dining buffet using a few of my favorite things. (This post contains affiliate links.)
I love, love, love vintage bottles and have collections of aqua, brown, and lavender. I grouped some of my aqua bottles around another favorite – a white ironstone pitcher filled with pink carnations.
To add a little earthiness to my spring vignette, I included my favorite wooden bowl, shaped like a heart.
The smaller hearts are carved from stone and are so smooth and cool to the touch. I purchased them for Valentine’s Day but am keeping them out a while longer because I like that so much. Who says hearts are only for Cupid’s special day, anyway?
On the other end of the dining buffet is my favorite, chippy wooden candlestick. If you’re a regular reader, you know I love vintage mirrors. I had to include a small white one.
A pretty little ivy joins the spring vignette in a metal farmhouse flowerpot. Our local greenhouse sells these for just a few dollars each. To give it height, it sits atop a pretty flower box.
A tiny vintage aqua bottle holds a few carnation buds. I like the small carnations best.
I kept the painted shutters on this wall since the color matches the dining buffet. I hung a rustic bark and twig wreath to keep the spring vignette from looking too sweet. Plus I love the texture of the wreath.
What favorite things do you like to include when you create a spring vignette?
