Oh Spring You Are So Close

Sun is out. Slightly warmer temperature. Some windows opened. Yesterday was awesome weather wise. Having the sun out motivated me so much to get some stuff done. Got some cleaning done. I got some laundry done. I even got motivated to do a little decorating in my dining room area for the upcoming season of spring. Oh man I am so excited for warmer weather and the sun rays beaming down on my face. A great time to be outside which I love.

I recently went out antique shopping with my husband at a small town about an hour away from where we live. We happened to be in this area since my daughter was at the local high school for a winter guard competition. Anyway it was a cool experience. Everything was neat to see but we did purchase a couple of things and one included was a small rectangular shaped tobacco basket. It was a cool find from my husband. He knew that I would like it.

It’s in pretty good shape so I don’t think it’s that old. Not 100% sure. So I decided to use this as a base for my dining table center piece.

I wanted to add some florals. So I went to my stash and found these that I thought would be perfect for the season of spring. I got these florals from local stores that carry faux flowers and even got some from a garage sale.

So I added the long stem yellow and white florals around this flower vase that I had at home. I even wrapped some burlap ribbon that I got at my local dollar store to make the vase less plain looking.

Then I simply added the rest of the flowers to create a pretty arrangement in the vase. It did add some height to it but not so much that you can’t see the person across from you went sitting for dinner.

I really love how it turned out. I love its simplicity and freshness. I love the colors and how it brightens the room. It helps warm it up and make it feel inviting. It’s a little bit of spring in the house. It’s perfect for the upcoming season and maybe into summer time. We’ll see if I keep it on into the summer months. Who knows I may find something else to change things up.

Well thanks for staying along and look forward to some more splashes of decor in my home.
