Spring Buffet ....

Pin It!
As IF I haven't shared our buffet with you enough, I'm sharing it a-GAIN (sorry).  Gone are the reds that were splashed around for Winter and in are more soft colors for Spring!


I added a few, inexpensive "newbies" here, too ... can you spot them?


Of course, I kept my fleur-de-lis vase from Willow Tree.  I love that it can work with any season and is large enough to hold nice, fat bunches of faux florals!


And, what did we do before glass cloches?  My little bird's nest, robins eggs and shredded paper feel quite fancy being showcased like this:


Goodbye pinecones and hello seashells, cream orbs and beach wood:


I thought it'd be fun to layer a touch of black in the mix ... this whimsical Subway art (Home Goods ... surprise, surprise) is just the ticket!


And, unfortunately, my paintbrush skipped on over to my birdhouse and gave it a coat of Old White.


To balance the robins eggs on the right side (under the cloche), my OCD-self had to add a splash of blue on the left side, as well.  Although, I did break my cardinal odd rule by not adding a third pop of blue.  Ugh ... might have to fix that before I convince myself that bad things will happen if I don't!


And, to finish it off, I added a new lamp (yes, *hangs head low* ... Home Goods):


And, there ya' have it ... simple and welcoming Spring (annnnd, now that I look at this again, I'm surprised I haven't painted the frame yet.  Hmmmmm ...)


I love seeing how all of you are *Springifying,* too!

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by,

Becca

Good Morning Becca Sweetie...
An absolutely gorgeous share this morning. I love seeing your buffet change. The white is stunning and does it ever say Spring and Summer.

Love that splash of blue from the nest. So pretty, and your bird house is just delightful. What an element of surprise there.

Love the lamp, don't you just love Home Goods? Nobody can beat the quality and prices.

Have a glorious weekend sweetie. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Love it, Becca! The cloche is my fave!! No, the birdhouse is my fave! Uhhh, maybe the floral arrangement is my fave! Oh, just forget it, I love it all!!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Beautiful, Becca! Your buffet is such a nice area to do displays like this. I got a ruffled cake stand like yours, but I haven't found a cloche to fit it yet.

Lovely job, Becca! I think that bowl full of sea shells and starfish is perfect for spring and summer. Love the entire arrangement of spring goodies. Happy Saturday! xo ~Liz

Becca- It looks so springy and lovely. I am with you on the three thing- I always feel like I am waiting for something to bop me until I do the triad! Those mini-daisies are just gorgeous- they look real! Loving your new lamp. I have a thing for lamps and have way too many. Happy Saturday. xo Diana

Shirley@Housepitality Designs said...

Your Spring Buffet is so refreshingly beautiful...The small pops of color in the eggs and flowers really create such nice focal points of the table...

I am partial to your bowl as I have the same one in the light green....love that HomeGoods!!!...

Jemsmom said...

Why do your faux florals look so darn good and when I do them they do not??? You have the touch! I love the robin's eggs. Nothing says spring like them!

CosmoGirl Carla said...

As always, your new arrangement looks great. Love the new lamp and springy flowers in the gorgeous vase. They look real! Thanks for sharing and more decor inspiration.

Nicole Day said...

Hi Becca! This looks so fresh and springy! Can you tell me where you found that skinny runner? I need one like that for my foyer table (but then, I didn't look at HOMEGOODS! Hope it's from there!) :) Have a great week.

Your buffet looks great. I like the touch of black and the robin's egg blue. Can't beat the combination of seashells, nests and bird houses. That's always nice. Oh, and flowers. All the things I love.
