Spring Mantel

Although it has felt like *almost* summer here in our neck of the woods (ok... not really! I'll be wishing it felt this good in the summer), Spring has definitely shown up a little earlier than expected and has inspired me to bring a little color on to our mantel.

I left the large gold mirror and rustic white iron gate from our holiday mantel and a few other gold touches like the candle sticks and hexagon print candle holder.

On one side I added some wooden candlesticks, the hexagon candle, a little white bird and an arrangement that I had made sometime last year! I want to add some spring-y colors with flowers but I just haven't found anything that I like so far.

On the other side, I added a wooden bird house, the gold candlesticks, a "basket of succulents", and a cute blue bird!

For my spring decor, I just shopped around the house. Like I said, I need some color in the arrangement and maybe a fun wreath or something to hang from the gate. But not bad for using what I had on hand!!

Wishing you all a happy spring!

  1. Looks like a great start! Love the pop of color from the blue bird. Where did you get those bird houses? or did you make them? They're so cute!

  2. Thank you! I picked up the bird house from Canton Trade Days. It's a large flea market in Canton, Texas, and a man made them to sell there.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. It means a lot. I try and answer any questions directly in the comment section so if you ask a question come back to look for my answer. However, it is much easier for me to answer questions through email at lorrinteriors@gmail.com.
