Spring Decor

I hope you all had a great Easter! We had a weekend full of family and yummy was a lot of fun! Since Spring has officially sprung here in Iowa, I wanted to share a little of our Spring decor.

I will start with our kitchen table. I bought a couple bags of river rock at the Dollar Tree to fill my Pier 1 candle vase. The plant is one I have had from Ikea. I bought the plate from Marshalls a few months ago. I love it! I am using it to hold our fresh veggies. I can't wait for the farmer's market to start! The little outdoor candle holder and watering can are from the dollar spot at Target. I bought the fake white flowers at the Dollar Tree to fill the watering can. The table runner was a wedding gift from Target. It has been so versatile. I have been able to use it for all seasons.

The corner of our kitchen counter was the first thing I decorated for Spring. The only new things I bought for this were the blue and white plates and the woven cups. The plates were on sale at Target for like $0.80 each. John and Sherry on Young House Love have some of these woven cups that I have admired. I found some of my own at Marshalls recently. I think they are so cute!

I also made a few changes to the bookcase. I framed some of our professional wedding pictures and put them on one shelf. The second shelf has a stack of my favorite decor magazines with a candle and glass dish with shells we found in Mexico on it. I bought the frames from Goodwill a year ago and painted them white. I printed a map of Canada, the United States, and Mexico and put it in one of the frames without the glass. I am going to buy some pins to stick on the map of the places Lee and I have been together. Lee and I love to travel so it will be a good way to keep track and show all the places we have been. I think the starfish frame is my favorite. It is so simple but I love it. I bought a piece of scrapbook paper and the starfish from Michales and put them in the frame again without the glass. The plant is another one I have had from Ikea.

What do you think of everything? Have any of you been doing any Spring decorating?


  1. I love the framed map next to the framed starfish. I think this would great in my kids beach themed bathroom!

  2. Love the starfish! I did something similar to that last year, oooh how I love summer. Can't wait! :)

  3. I love the shelves...everything just "pops" against the black. Looks very light and spring-y.
