A Touch of Spring on the Coffee Table

March 31, 2015 by 7 Comments

Better late than never – I just got back from the grocery store with a bunch of yellow tulips. Fresh flowers make me happy!!  Time to create a quick spring vignette before Easter arrives.  The coffee table was begging for a touch of Spring and these yellow tulips were just what was needed.

The seagrass tray on the coffee table usually holds the hurricane and magazines.  I found the blue and white bowl at TJ Maxx a while back, it came home with me and landed in this spot on top of some magazines.  I simply added some filler to the bowl and a handful of Easter eggs.

This is my version of a sweet spring nest if you will, of course the eggs are fake but I think they look real. I love the different sizes, shapes and colors of the eggs, aren’t they cute?

No bunnies this year, they are tucked away in a box, the only one that made it out this year is attached to the spring wreath on the front door. We’ll be spending Easter with family in the Dallas area.  We can’t wait to spend time with the grands….it’s been way too long!!

Thank you for visiting, and a Happy Easter to you!
