Spring is such a short lived but beautiful season around StoneGable! March has certainly come in like a lion here so I’m finding spring beauty, or should I say, creating spring beauty in my home until more seasonal weather comes along! With our busy lives it’s a good thing to know how to create something like a vignette that takes only a few minutes to put together and looks fabulous too! So today I’m sharing an easy spring vignette that you can make too!

Today is a very busy for me and I’ll be out running most of the day! But before I left I wanted to almost literally throw together a spring vignette for my living room. I had 10 minutes and no more! So here’s my very easy spring vignette! How easy would this be for you to do too?
The vignette was inspired by a big bunch of tulips that Bobby brought home for me!
Tulips are one of the rare flowers I’ll put in a clear vase. I think the stems and leaves create such a pretty look! Graceful.
Because it’s spring I grabbed my favorite big, round basket to corral the vignette. Always use a basket or tray on a coffee table when creating a vignette. It sorta sets the parameters of the grouping!
To create a little more height for the tulips I perched them on a pair of white painted books. Notice how many white elements I used for this vignette? I like to keep a tight color palette.
A candle is such a nice addition to a vignette. Again I chose a white candlestick and a large one at that! It was sitting on the Curlacue chest near the coffee table. So convenient! It gave a little more height to the overall look of the spring inspired vignette. Varying heights of objects used in a vignette is the key to making it pleasing.
I basically looked around my downstairs to see what else I could grab to fill in the vignette. A small faux plant in a white pot for some “fluff” and the tile coasters that were in a coffee table drawer. Remember I didn’t want to fuss with this vignette, it had to be put together quickly.
Then to give a little nod to Easter I took one book page covered egg from a nest of them in the foyer and added it to the vignette.
Less than 10 minutes and the easy spring vignette is done! So get some grocery store tulips and put together an easy spring vignette for yourself!
Here’s an easy tutorial for making those BOOK PAGE EGGS. Even if you are not crafty you can do this!
