French Country Spring Dining Room

Hi Friends, how's your March coming along? 
It's my Birthday month and a transitional time for spring inspiration.
I'm slowly but surely getting some spring things out
and it's lifting my spirits after a long winter.

My big Italian metal basket is back on the Dining Room table. 
Spring-y hydrangeas and ivy are the base for whatever else
might be added as the seasons change.

I added my little French-y goat cart in gray to the tableau on the table,
with my lamb tureen nestled in a mossy green wreath.
One of my iron urns is filled with faux paperwhites 
tied with a brown check wired ribbon.

I like to keep the bottom of the wagon lined with a bed of moss. 
It's a pretty way to keep things grounded and organic.

I have a beautiful Waverly green floral toile table runner
that I always used for early spring.
But now at this house it's not where the others are stored,
so I'm hoping it has just been mistakenly packed in a storage box.
I opted for this light neutral floral instead.
Not many spring colors but still works.

The little wagon was originally black
but I painted it French Gray in spring a few years ago 
and I'm so glad I did.
Now it blends in so much better.

After Christmas I gathered a few little lambs 
and used them under cloches on the buffet.
At that time they were accessorized with pinecones and greenery.

I like the look, 
so I decided to just change out the florals
for a spring-y look.
A few pieces of tarnished silver serving dishes
help elevate the little lamby vignettes.

Nothing like the light shining through the glass cloches
to see the dust. Yuk. Sorry. 
I cleaned these off a week ago but you sure can't see it!

... sweet little lamb faces.
I can never get enough no matter the season.

I wanted to keep the Dining Room more low-key "spring"
so this decor could stay put for a bit,
and save the Easter decor for the Garden Room.

I'll be sharing the rest of the Dining Room soon.
Be sure and come back Saturday when I'm joining a group
for a "Dishes" Hop!
Can you even imagine what that will include?
I know it will be very diverse and tons of fun!

Hope you're having a great week!

Hope to see you Monday evening at 6:00 central.

  1. Very inviting, Debra. I share that love of the lambs with you. The moss liner in the wagon makes a good base. So far I've only add a few florals throughout the condo, and changed out several pillow covers and prints. It felt like a big deal as I was pulling things out and putting things away!

  2. I always enjoy your vignettes, regardless of the season! Your spring d├ęcor is lovely!

  3. So pretty Debra, and I didn't use my hydrangeas for spring for the first time in two years.

    I love your table and wagon. I enjoy using miss for spring through summer.

    Your cloches are so pretty! Waiting for warmer days.


  4. Hi Debra, The cloche with the delicate flowers and lambs is really a wonderful arrangement!

  5. Hi your arrangements, but really loving your dining room chair covers for Spring. What a great way to lighten up the room, that isn't permanent. I'm never going to be on board with all white, and this is a great seasonal solution! Hugs, Sandi

  6. Your lambs are so sweet. I love the tureen. Gorgeous.

  7. As usual your vignette is lovely and I love every one of those lambs! Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm. xo Kathleen

  8. So beautiful! Love those sweet little lambs under the cloche!

  9. Such a pretty look for spring. The wagon is darling and the way you decorated it, is so pretty. Love the lambs. Such pretty arrangements and those cloches are beautiful. I am happy to share your French Country Spring look at Love Your Creativity. Happy spring.

  10. Love your table centerpiece and those cloche mini lambs are so lovely! Happy Birthday! ;)

  11. Beautiful arrangements! The greenhouse-like structure is my favorite

  12. It's such a treat to see your spring vignettes and I love lambs in the cloches! I'm happy to feature your post this week at the Tuesday Turn About Link Party and hope to see you there!

  13. I love your beautiful, cheerful spring decor, Debra. It makes me so happy to think that spring is almost here, and posts like yours remind me of that. I love all of the pretty touches, and the gray color works so well with the basket. Thanks so much for sharing at Thursday Favorite Things.
