I started my spring decorating today and began in the dining room.  My table is all ready for spring and Easter.  While I love elegant decorating I also have to be practical.  My home is small, the kitchen is a galley kitchen and the dining room table is THE table in the house so I can’t have anything too elaborate or too space consuming on the table.

A few days ago I went to the Thrift Store and found this awesome little pot WITH its lid for only $2.99.  This was the anchor piece for my table.

The base was the burlap I have been using for almost a year now ~ it is so versatile.  I added some flowers ~ a fresh bunch from Aldi’s {$3.99}, an African Violet and a silk lilac sprig.

I used my new pot and lid from the Thrift Store to hold the fresh flowers as well as an antique Atlas Mason jar and another Thrift Store find from a few months ago, a milk glass vase.  The African Violet is in a plantar from the Dollar Tree and the lilac sprig in in a small test-tube like vase held by a wood-carved bunny.

I like to add some unexpected little accents to my decor ~ it makes the kids smile and me!  I added a little pipe cleaner peep to the robin blue eggs and a fabric bunny to the center of the yellow bouquet.

Next I added some dollar bin tins from Target from a few years ago and some other little touches from years gone by.

The little bunny below is my favorite decoration ~ look at her little face!  She was in my Easter basket when I was a girl and always makes me think of my mom….love this little cutie!

This little bunny & chick salt and pepper set is a new addition ~ from the dollar bins at Target {$3.00}.

And the table is complete with a little after dinner reading ~ a little book about Baby Chickies!

I hope you enjoyed my spring table ~ have a beautiful week.
