Spring Mantle With A Tuscan Flare

Hey! Sorry I haven't been around in awhile it seems like the days just run into each other and I haven't been doing much decorating around here. I kicked my butt into gear this morning and created a Spring Mantle. As you all know I love the dark rich colors of Tuscan style, so I wanted to stay true to that but add some lighter spring pieces as well. I used everything I already had, so it cost me nothing to create this look love that!

I flanked either side of the mantle with two topiaries, I love the height. I kept my same arrangement and finials just added two moss bunnies on either side of the finials and some faux spring flowers to the arrangement.


Instead of adding candles to the candle holders I put some spanish moss down and added garden balls and a bunny from Pier 1.


Here's the other side I added some hydrangea eggs I made a few years ago to the bird cage and cute little chick from Tuesday Morning.


Here's a closer look at the bottom half. I added a spring wreath to the fireplace screen. I attached it by adding a command hook to the screen and tying the wreath on with floral wire.


Here's a closer look at the arrangement.


 Here's a closer look at the top half.




Well, that's it for today guys! I hope you enjoyed my Spring Mantle! I will be back soon!! 

Have a great week!
