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!
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!
Aren’t these delicate vintage cabbage tea cups perfect for a spring centerpiece?
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!
Stop back in the next couple of weeks as the rest of my dining room goes through a spring transition! I have a big surprise to reveal!
