Styling Your Mantel for Spring

Morning All! Although we started the day with below zero windchill temps here, the sun is shining!! I am getting inspired to bring a touch of Spring into our home and usually use the living room mantel as a jumping off point. Here are some Spring styled mantels I am loving for inspiration:

Glass Vessels

Because I have several of these glass vessels I was thinking about adding colorful eggs this year like this one from BHG:

To replicate this look you can find the eggs here on sale, and the glassware here:

Floral Branches

I also want to bring in some floral branches, and love the idea of incorporating items from my collection of pitchers like this pic from Chic on a Shoestring:

Or in a fluted urn via Terrain:

To replicate the look, some amazing faux branches can be found here: Cherry Blossom branches, Plum Blossom branches, and Dogwood flower branches.

Mirrors

I love the look of branches layered with a mirror in order to project the feel of Spring further into the room (from Pottery Barn, below):

Love the shape of this mirror:

And cannot resist this round mirror:

Blue and White

I am really partial to blue and white and want to incorporate some of my ginger jars and vases into my Spring mantelscape like this gorgeous look from Enchanted Home (spent hours perusing this site…so beautiful!):
