Spring Fever

I had to make a quick trip to the mall and ended up staying longer than I intended because I was admiring some pretty Spring and Easter tableware and decor at two of my favorite stores, Pottery Barn and Williams-Sonoma! Teal, light and bright greens, and nature-inspired neutrals seem to be big color themes for the spring season. These happen to be some of my favorite colors–no wonder I was so drawn to the store displays! 🙂 (Photos shown in this post are from Pottery Barn and Williams-Sonoma)

At Pottery Barn, I loved all the teal in the table settings displayed right by the front entrance. The tableware looked great with the natural color and texture of woven place mats, along with some burlap and twine accents–so springy and outdoorsy! The inside store display I saw looked very much like the set-up in the photo above, featured on the Pottery Barn website.

And I thought these bunny cupcake stands were sweet–they also work great for mini pies and tarts or cookies!

The teal-green-neutral combination also looked great in other home accessories…

I thought this embroidered butterfly pillow had a great spring feel, too.

You can always find fun baking accessories there, like this Buttercup Cakelet Pan. How cute is that?

And I saw these cookies later on their website–some great Easter cookie decorating inspiration!

Do you have Spring Fever like I do? Have you found any inspiring Easter and Spring decorating, entertaining, or gift ideas out there?

Autumn Decorating Inspiration from Pottery Barn

I found some great decorating ideas at the Pottery Barn website. It’s one of my favorite places to go idea-shopping because they always showcase their products in such beautiful ways. Most of these pictures from the site show how you can decorate with natural items (or natural-looking items), and how you can use and arrange containers to showcase these items on your tabletop, mantel, porch, or other areas of your home.This is one of my favorite ideas–filling hanging jars with acorns and votive candles in glass holders. This idea would look great on a table, too–you could use an old canning jar. Make an arrangement with several filled jars, and you have a great centerpiece!I also love the idea of using natural foliage in pottery containers or vases. It makes such a beautiful arrangement.You can also bundle up some pretty fall branches of leaves and berries. If you can’t get them to stand up nicely like the bundle shown above, arrange several smaller bundles and display them in baskets.

Here are other creative ways to fill containers and use other decorative items in your fall displays…While I was browsing the site, I also saw some autumn plates I liked. I love the fresh mix of these traditional design elements.Hmm…I just may have to make room in my budget for these! 🙂
