With Spring comes Spring cleaning and a possible change of decor. I recently did a dining room Spring refresh and I am so happy with the way that it turned out!
You may remember from my dining room reveal post what the tablescape looked like. To refresh your memory click here. The set up was a little different with wine glasses, eucalyptus garland down the center of the table and a few other things. When thinking of Spring, I wanted to keep my decor light while mixing in a little color to please my eye.
Keeping it a little rustic but chic was my goal. Of course I ran straight to Pinterest for some inspiration on what I was looking to create. The first addition to the table was this two-tier wooden tray which I got from Hobby Lobby. Once I had it I needed to figure out what to put on it. I had some extra succulents around and my pine cones which I new would look great. You can’t see it in the picture but I also have a spool of yarn on the other side of the tray as decor. To make the tray practical since it’s in the dining room, what better things to add that the salt and pepper shakers…genius!
I decided not to keep my wine glasses on the table since my decor is taller than it was in the winter. I did not want the table to look gaudy and the glasses to compete with the tablescape. Anyway, once my tray was decorated the table still felt incomplete. I was on the hunt for 2 matching pieces of greenery of some sort…thanks Pinterest. What I actually found were these cute faux lilac flowers from T.J. Maxx. I was immediately smitten when I saw the containers they came in. Some white to offset the wood of the tray.
I really like them because they look so real! When I brought them home and put them on the table, the first thing Sheldon did was touch them. He goes, “Are they real?” Once they were added on to the table I knew it was complete.
The last thing I did in the dining room was add this cute faux fiddle fig tree. I just love the way greenery looks in the house plus how real does this tree look!? It’s crazy good, it even feels real. I also rearranged my bar cart and keep that handy.
One more thing before I go. Some people have said “all you need now is paintings or something on the walls.” The kicker is that the wall where the bar cart rests is a brick wall 🙁 . We already had my dad come in with his industrial drill to put up my floating shelves in the living room so we aren’t going to do that again. However I am thinking about possibly putting up some sticky wallpaper or wall decals. I’ll keep you posted.
That is all I have for you today. I’ll be sort of piggybacking off of this post soon to share where I get all my favorite faux plants. Even though I have a green thumb and a couple of real plants, taking care of them can be a lot. Faux ones can look just as real and you don’t have to worry about them dying so less disappointment lol.
Thanks for reading!
