Fresh flowers are a welcome respite from the winter gloominess around us. It has been rainy and gray around here.
I chose white flowers, keeping it in a neutral palette. The white tulips are a foreshadowing to the spring season that’s ahead of us.
I complimented the white tulips with some white stock and pom flowers, using crystal vases to echo the crystal clocks. Little details like that brings cohesiveness to a vignette which most people won’t overtly notice but will none the less feel when looking at it.
The last detail I added to the mantel are birch candles since it gets so dark so early right now. They create great ambiance and they have a timer switch so I don’t even have to think about them. They go on by themselves and they turn off by themselves. Best invention ever!
Time marches on and before you know it I might add some romantic touches for valentines day with some blush toned blooms.
For now, I’m enjoying this fresh mantel arrangement… and tweaking other details and spaces around our home. Stop by again soon and see what else happens around here.
