~A Spring Dining Room~

Kitchen
Thank you for joining me on my home tour this week! The last room I have to show is the dining room.

Hutch
I have several spring decorations on my hutch.

Hutch
Two silver compotes and my mini bunny tea set are on the left side.

Nest
One of the silver compotes holds this nest of robin's eggs.

Teapot
On the right side, I have a miniature bunny tea pot on a stack of vintage cookbooks.

Banner
This is the spring banner that I made this year.

Banner
Little pink birds announce the arrival of the season.

Flowers
And lastly, my centerpiece. It is a wooden tray covered with a lace cloth, and it is holding an assortment of vintage bottles that are filled with flowers.

Flowers
I was told these bottles can be found at "junk" or antique stores for very cheap. I was shocked to find them more like $5.00-$10.00 each! I ended up getting a lot of 12 on Ebay for just under $20.00.

Flowers

Thank you looking at my spring dining room! I will be back soon for Show and Tell Friday. The guidelines have been updated, so please take a look before participating.

Your home is beautiful Kelli! I love that you take time to celebrate and decorate for each season!

Thanks for sharing with us. You are inspiring, even if my home still leaves much to be desired.

Those spring decorations are adorable...it is inspiring me to get mine out now. I've been so busy, and our upcoming vacation is on my mind...but now I just to decorate! ;)

Rowan said...

You do so many inspiring things Kelli, I especially love the bunny teapot and the vintage cookery books. I'm not usually a fan of teapots that are anything other than the classic ordinary shape but this is very appealing.

Tori said...

Very pretty Kelli, I can see that you take lots of pride in your home.
Thanks for sharing!

Jennie said...

What a lovely tidy house, with all the wonderful feminine touches that make it a home. One of these years, I may have a tidy home too! But meanwhile, I'll enjoy yours.

Everything is lovely! I especially like the bottles with flowers and the spring banner. If you don't mind copycats, I may try a banner myself. :-) I was just thinking that one for every season might be nice!

How lovely it all is. I have some little bottles too. I bought them years ago for very little. I love the vintage cookbooks too. As usual all is so lovely.
Hopefully I see you tomorrow. I will visit and Show and Tell even if I don't put up a post.

I love your Easter dining room, especially with the sunny yellow walls as a backdrop. I, too, have a nest with robin's egg blue eggs in it. I love that color.

Mommy said...

And you spring banner is beautiful too. :)

Your spring dining room is beautiful!
I sure hope spring is here soon.
We are supposed to get rain and/or snow Sunday and Monday. I sure hope not. I am ready for spring.
I was prompted to get out my Easter decor this afternoon after seeing Easter decor on others blogs and taking the kids to an Easter Egg hunt this morning.

Sheila said...

I love, love, love your Spring banner. Can you tell us how you made it? What materials, etc. Thanks!

I rather call your house as home. I love your style and decorations especially the flowers you've place on the centerpiece.
