Spring Mantel & Hearth

If you read my last post, you may have noticed my spring mantel and hearth in the background of the Easter tablescape I created in front of our fireplace.  Here is a closer look at it  with some pics I took before I moved the dining room table over to this area.

A trio of faux boxwood wreaths and a picture frame were hung from a metal art piece above the mantel.

I brought out two of these white bunnies I got a few years back at Pier 1.

I like how they have their noses up like they are sniffing the spring air.

Mini-lights on a wire were wound onto the blossoms.

More lights were also attached to the blossoms in the vases.

There is a warm glow when the min-lights are turned on and the candles lit which we especially enjoy in the evenings.

Naturally, a cozy fire helps enhance the ambiance as well.

Let's have a look at the hearth area.

I made this SPRING banner years ago and brought it back out.  It is simply taped on to the curtain rod under the mantel.

On the right side of the hearth sits a small trunk covered with faux fur, a wreath and a buffalo check pillow.

Oh... and this guy too!

I think he likes warming himself by the fire :)

On the other side of the hearth, some spring blossoms, a lantern and candleholder add to the decor.

A small nest filled with coloured eggs is tucked in beside the lantern.

I had a lot of fun putting these spring touches on our mantel and hearth... if only the weather would cooperate so we could enjoy some spring outside.
Hopefully, it's on its way soon!

  1. Lori how beautiful . I love every bit of this . Hugs and blessings , Cindy

  2. Beautiful job Lori- love those white bunnies on the mantel and the little lights on the branches. Spring is coming alive here!

  3. Very beautiful! I love the white bunnies and lights. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  4. I love all of your green and white foliage, and your bunnies are adorable. You achieved such a beautiful, pulled-together look for your spring mantel by keeping your color palette simple and restrained. It's so effective! Great job!

  5. Lori, I love your Spring mantle and hearth! I have a THING for bunnies so they multiply around here:) I posted my mantle and hearth too if you want to come see. Thanks so much for your visits!

  6. Love your fireplace Lori. I envy you, its such a great place to have seasonal changes.

    And you do it so well!

  7. Thanks for sharing at Home Sweet Home!

  8. Beautiful.....loving the fireplace.

  9. Your mantel decor is always beautiful! Thank you for sharing with us at Celebrate Your Story, and I hope you’re having a great weekend.

  10. Such sweet bunnies!
    Thanks so much for sharing at AMAZE ME MONDAY!

  11. Oh my! I absolutely love, love, love this mantle! So elegant! We are re-doing our fireplace mantel soon and Spring will be my first decor on it. Do you mind sharing where you got those ceramic candleholders? The ones on the mantle and the one down lower by the fireplace? And those bunnies! I must have them! I am going to try to recreate everything you did here. Thank you so much for the inspiration. I'm not a fan of pastels, I was years ago but it always seemed to looked cluttered, maybe because of all the color.

  12. I will come back to this place, its huge and open, and have really tall ceilings. Wait staff at San Francisco venues was also pretty good. Bartender was awesome and personable. I was really pleased with my party here. Ha! I highly recommend these guys.

  13. How did you hang up the 'SPRING' bunting? It's a beautiful fireplace!

    1. Thanks Laura! I appreciate your kind compliment!
      I made this SPRING banner years ago. It is simply taped on to the curtain rod under the mantel. ~Lori

    2. But how did you attach the curtain rod. Is your mantel wood? Mine is stone.

    3. Yes, our mantel is wood so the curtain rod was screwed into it. ~ Lori
