Simple Spring Mantel

I am always rearranging my mantel
to reflect the seasons.
Spring Mantel

For this spring, I kept things simple with black and white.
Spring Mantel with Round Mirror
That way I could coordinate with the black frame
on my round mirror.

Ivy in white pot
I have used the black Pier One candlesticks many times in the past.
The white flower pots once held my long-gone evergreens from Christmas.
Let's see how long the ivy lasts!

Easter bunnies on mantel
For a touch of Easter,
I added the little bunnies I just bought at Pier One.

And I wanted to use tulips,
but for some reason
I couldn't find them anywhere!
White pitcher with flowers
The reddish spring flowers worked as a good substitute.
Since I have some reds in the room,
the flowers tie in to the room better than if I had added pink like I envisioned.

Simple Spring Mantel
White I was trying out different looks,
I took the ivy away for an even simpler feel.

Easter Mantel
I guess we are getting ready for Easter!

Have you decorated your mantel for spring?
I would love for you follow along so you don't miss a post!
