EARLY SPRING IN THE DINING ROOM

EARLY SPRING IN THE DINING ROOM- Budding branches and white dishes

I like the concept of transition. Moving from one thing to the next. Changing.  Many people don’t like change, but I love it! I think although some things are left behind in the past during a transition, moving forward and changing is learning. And a chance for new and wonderful possibilities. I feel the same way about the seasons. Here at StoneGable we are lucky enough to enjoy all four seasons in their most spectacular glory! By the time one season is ending I am looking forward to the next one beginning! Right now the decor at StoneGable is transitioning from winter to spring. It’s going through a rebirth of sorts and a reawakening to all the beauty this new season has to offer! Right now spring is beginning to bloom in my dining room!

Today I’ve joined up with a group of VERY talented bloggers to share a little spring inspiration! Make sure to check out the blogs at the end of this post!

EARLY SPRING IN THE DINING ROOM- Budding branches and white dishes. Capturing the beauty of the first signs of spring.

Just like spring itself does not come all at once, spring in my dining room starts with a few changes and slowly transitions and transforms as the season blooms! I first start with the centerpiece on my dining room table!

The urn is filled with large branches of white cherry blossoms.

They are not real… but faux! They do a very good job of mimicking the real thing thought. These blooms were an investment I made over the last few years. When they went on sale I would buy a stem. And now I have more than enough to decorate for spring. I got these at my local Pottery Barn Outlet.

Don’t shy away from faux florals. Just make sure that they are amazingly real looking! A handful of real blooming white cherry blossoms in my area would cost well over $100.00! But making that investment in some gorgeous not-really-real ones that will last for years is a very smart option!

These harbinger of spring seem to be a natural fit in the chippy urn on my dining room table. Branches work wonderfully inside the wide mouth of an urn! Ideal pairing for spring!

White dishes complete the welcoming spring centerpiece. I love to use dishes in a centerpiece. If you have pretty dishes get them out and display them. Stack them, show them off and enjoy the beauty they bring to your table, your room and your home!

The mercury glass candlesticks have stayed on the table since Christmas. And they will stay longer still! I love love love their soft shine and glimmer they add to the rest of the table!

  1. As someone enters your dining room, they would definitely feel Spring with a spring in their step. Such a beautiful vignette to entice Spring to come early this year. Love the table with that glorious chippy urn that sets the tone for the Early Spring decor.I so love the new look of the dining room Yvonne!….Have a great day!!

  2. This is so pretty, Yvonne. I almost did the same thing with my large urn. I love the look of yours and those branches do look real and want make a mess.

  3. LOVE THE CHIPPY URN! WE ARE LUCKY TO HAVE FOUR SEASONS HERE IN LOVELY PA BECAUSE THERE IS SUCH BEAUTY TO BE FOUND IN EVERY ONE, ALTHOUGH I’M NOT A FAN OF REALLY DREARY DAYS. EVEN WINTER IS GREAT BECAUSE YOU GET TO SEE ALL THE BEAUTY HIDDEN BY SUMMER’S DEEP GREENERY, SUCH AS PONDS AND OLD STONE HOUSES. WE HAVE MUCH TO BE THANKFUL FOR LIVING IN THIS BEAUTIFUL PLACE.

  4. Yvonne I agree about enjoying all the seasons, and the best thing about a long winter is how wonderful Spring is when it arrives. Your table is wonderful, the white blossoms are just the ticket for shouting out Spring is Here!

  5. Your dining room just sparkles with the most beautiful light Yvonne, and your styling is so well done! I feel the same way about you as change and I agree that many do not. On to the new and embrace each new season and day!
    Hugs,
    Janet

  6. Your dining room looks beautiful and so fresh, Yvonne! I love your faux branches and the lovely arrangement with your urn. The sunshine and all the white is so lovely!
    love and blessings~

  7. Love your dining room Yvonne. The bright light makes the room pop. How fun it is to be able to change from one season to another with something as simple as faux silk stems. Love!Love!Love! Thanks Yvonne. I’m ready to start decorating my dining room.

  8. Yvonne, I so love your decor, and I confess, I’ve “borrowed” many ideas from you! In my home, I feel my tablescapes are incomplete without fabric to anchor them, such as a runner or something similar. But I want to stay away from anything too grandma-looking. I wonder, what’s your take on that?

  9. Yvonne, I love waking up every morning to read your blog. You are such an inspiration. I have used many of your ideas. Hope you don’t mind. Blessings to you.

    Cheers,
    Vickey

  10. Thank you for the ‘legitimizing’ the use of faux florals. I have always liked and used them but for awhile it seemed they fell into disfavor with popular designers. It’s true cheap looking ones can be tacky. Your suggestion of only picking ones that look real and purchasing afew at a time when on sale was very savvy. Thank you for another much appreciated lesson in decor!
    Hope your son’s recovery is progressing well.

  11. What a beautiful center piece you created! I love the branches of white cherry blossom. So classy, elegant and delicate! I also love the idea of displaying your beautiful dishes as part of the center piece. Thank you for the inspiration!! Have a wonderful week!

  12. Absolutely breath taking! I love the faux blooms. They do look pretty close to the real thing. Where did you get the cabbage tea cups?

  13. Beautiful! I am absolutely mad for that urn! The cherry blossom stems are gorgeous. (I so wish we had a PB Outlet nearby.) And of course you put everything together impeccably. We’ve been away from home for two months and, although I have thoroughly enjoyed our visits to Florida and Texas, I am ready to be home and to start welcoming spring in the North Carolina mountains! I can’t wait to add touches of spring throughout my house, too. One more week of travels first.

  14. Hi Yvonne,
    Like you, I’m beginning to transition our home from winter to spring a little bit at a time. It’s really hard not to since here in Texas temperatures are already reaching the 70’s in the afternoon. Love your chippy urn & faux flowers. They look great! More inspiration for me!!
    Thank you,
    Cindy

  15. I absolutely love your dining room, it is inviting. I love your dining room table. Was it purchased this way or did you repurpose it? I am wanting to do something with my table, and love the look of yours…

  16. Your dining room is gorgeous, Yvonne. Flowering branches are the perfect spring decor, and those are very real-looking. I love your chandelier, too!

  17. Hi

    When you got your chandelier from overstock, did you have it rewired? I see comments that now has a black cord and yours looks silver

  18. I love the urn with the with faux cherry blossoms on your dining room table! They definitely look real! We have 4 seasons here in Ontario, Canada too. It is freezing rain today so reading your blog has cheered me up and I find myself dreaming of spring. Thanks for the inspiration, Yvonne!

  19. Love how you have used items even from Christmas to transition into the next season. Keep sending these wonderful ideas.

  20. Just lovely! Did you get your stems in the Lancaster/Intercourse area? I am heading over there this weekend.

  21. Beautiful room. Love the whit dishes. I would like to have the white bottles you use for bud vases. Do you have a source? Thanks for sharing all your ideas.
