Adding Some Spring To The Dining Room

Spring is popping up everywhere and I am loving all the pretty bright colors and stunning floral arrangements.  I love using flowering branches too, they always add so much drama.  Last year I bought a pretty jar from Hobby Lobby and have had so much fun changing it up with branches and creating different vignettes.

I started out with this the other day.  I am loving yellow this spring, it keeps grabbing my eye every where I go.  These faux flowering branches just had to come home with me.  I mixed them with some white branches I had from last year, then  I added a few simple accessories around the jar to create a small centerpiece vignette.

This type of vignette is so easy to create and the tall branches always add so much drama.

 Last year for Easter I used the same vase with branches, I just added a candle and cross.

Then for summer I used bright table runners and left the jar by itself.

I can't seem to resist tweaking something every time I walk past it, so this is what I have going on now.  I added a few more pieces to the vignette.  My large J & O replaced the small O.

  Loving this for now, but who knows, the next time I walk by it might change again. haha  Tell me I am not the only one that changes things every 5 minutes, I know you must do that too, don't you?

  1. I love using flowering branches. I had some that I previously used in an arrangement and now they hang on my front door. Yours look great!

  2. As you know, I'm loving yellow this season too! No, you are not the only one who changes vignettes a lot. I do too. I love your flowering branches and how you used the letters beside it. I never would've thought to add the letters to that vignette. Very pretty!

  3. Change is always fun. Love the blooms, Marty. Happy Spring.

  4. Everything is lovely as always.
    I need some flowering branches!

    Thank you for sharing this with us at Thoughts of Home on Thursday!

  5. Good morning, Marty. The blossoms are beautiful especially in the gold dipped vase. I agree with you that tall stems look amazing and are easy to work with.

    Happy Thoughts of Home. :)

  6. Marty,
    There is just something about yellow for Spring and then you combined the flowering branches with a gold dipped vase and it is elegant.
    Thank you for the inspiration you share with us.
