Spring Display in a Tray



I'm carrying on with adding more spring touches around the house.  Gathering together some green & white décor items and placing them in a round woven tray, I was able to create a spring vignette for the dining room table.

This bright apple-green colour is very spring-y and goes well with the white items on the tray. I also included these contrasting black napkins with a floral blossom pattern which complement the faux dogwood blossoms in the white pitcher.
 
On top of a white pedestal cake plate, I placed a green Easter basket-dish and a white bunny.
 

An egg cup was set on top of a stack of small plates with a natural looking nest sitting alongside.
 
How about an ice cream sundae to welcome spring? These sundae cups are just the right shade of green for my display.  The life saver looking sticks are long handled spoons to reach way down to get all of your treat.
 
And after your ice cream, you can have some of these foil covered chocolate Easter eggs. (colour-coordinated of course!)


These white bunnies are from Home Outfitters this year.
 
I think this little guy is so cute!
 
Below, you can see the faux air plant orbs (purchased at a local gift shop years ago) I placed around the tray to add a bit of spring time grass to the spaces in the tray.

Though there is still some snow outside, it's definitely starting to look like spring inside.
 
The beauty of decorating on a tray is that this display can be moved to another area with relative ease. That's a good thing since I'll need this table cleared soon to start working on my Easter tablescape.
 
Have you started putting out any spring décor?
 
Go ahead and get out that box of décor items. All it takes is one bunny and you'll be in the mood!
Thanks for visiting!

Yes, I am pulling out my spring stuff too! Love those dogwood napkins. I'll be showing a green and white tablescape on Tuesday, and I have more spring rabbits to show as it gets closer to Easter. Thanks for a lovely eye candy post!

This took my breath away! You have a knack for grouping items for a themed display, and I would love to do something for my dining room as soon as I put away the Key West decor.

I have been sitting here for 10 minutes, breaking down each aspect of this gorgeous design, mentally checking my equivalent of what you have used! I am so inspired because I have been wondering what I wanted to do on my table! And you have just given me the idea -- thanks so much!

Denise said...

You created such a sweet AND beautiful vignette.

I must comment on you photo taking skills as well. Even with bright background lightening, you managed to take clear, well-framed pictures. I'm jealous of your abilities.

Stephanie Watkins said...

Love LOVE LOVE!!! Great use of the bunnies. I love green as a main color and I how you coordinated everything based on the napkin pattern. I also did a kitchen table vignette and used a slew of colors based on a set of plates. Thanks for sharing. I'm stoping by from the weekend retreat link party.

Carol said...

This is so very pretty, Lori! I kind of think almost everything looks better grouped together in a basket or on a tray. I really like how you've created different heights and pulled in a variety of different things that work so well together. Great color combo!
