I found the adorable birdhouse and the nest at Tuesday Morning. The colors were perfect.
And of course my love birds had to stay!
My candlestick rabbits look oh so cute mixed in with all the springtime goodness... if I do say so myself!
And the floral garland and butterfly clips throughout the whole display tie it all together.
But I think the star of the show has to be my DIY topiaries.
They were so easy....and I mean sooooo easy. I had planned on doing a full tutorial but decided I wouldn't insult your intelligence and just give you a basic how-to.
I bought the moss balls at Micheal's, stuck a dowel that I painted green into it, and stuck it into some foam in a pot. Covered the base with some spanish moss, glued on a bow, and called it a day. Literally that easy. It would be more appropriate to say that I assembled them then made them. But I think they add SO much and just scream "Spring!"
Now all the mantel needs is a spring banner. And boy do I have a great idea up my sleeve. I better get busy!
As always I'm linking to these great parties and events:
