Spring Greens In The Foyer

Hello dear friends! Hope everyone had a great weekend! Mine was pretty busy. On Sunday, we got back from Providence, Rhode Island after picking up my daughter from Brown University. So excited to have her home for the summer break!
Last week, we had wonderful spring weather. But the weekend was on the chilly side with a frost advisory overnight! It's still too early for us to plant annuals outside.
I am looking forward to more spring-like temperatures for the upcoming week. 
It feels good to add some spring accents in my foyer after a long and deary winter: 

This mossy green birdhouse sits on a column pedestal.

Click HERE for the tutorial to make these versatile column pedestals used as risers in vignettes.

The decoupaged  French Script tag decorated with some moss and silk forsythia hangs from the birdhouse. 

Spring seems like the perfect season to play with bunnies and the color green in my home.

Loving the lacy detailing on this white ceramic bunny.

The tall candle holder adds wonderful height to the vignette.

I added the green moss ball from Walmart on top of the candle holder instead of a candle.

A simple moss wreath hanging from the mirror is a lovely way to add some texture and spring accents.

Love the contrast in texture between the jute webbing and the moss wreath.

Blue mason jars inside a tool box is a beautiful way to display posies of spring violas.

Violas, a cool weather annual  planted in peat pots, are a lovely way to enjoy these pretties inside the home during the spring season.

Violas inside these mason jars. Loving the way they contrast in color with the blue mason jars. 

A bundle of forsythias behind the wooden tool box adds height, color, and texture and also  balances well with the other side of the vignette.

I love adding spring to my decor! A season of rebirth in nature, warmer temperatures, and increasing daylight :)

So long for today! I am so glad you stopped by. I hoped you liked peeking into my spring greens. It is always so much fun having you over!
