Spring Table

Happy Monday friends!  How was your weekend?  We had a low-key weekend.  We did a little shopping, a little cleaning and a little crib-lowering.  Now that Paisley is pulling up on everything, it was time to lower the mattress! I also got around to finishing up my Spring Table and I can't wait to show it to you!

I went with a simple, natural look.  I saw some cute burlap silverware holders on Design, Dining & Diapers and thought they would look great with my spring decor.  They are super easy and quick to make.  I just cut out a strip of burlap ribbon and folded up the bottom.  Then used a line of hot glue on each side. 



I used my old Root Beer Crate as a centerpiece and made a "Spring" banner for the front.  I used scrapbook paper and letters, and a little jute to hang it.


I used a pretty white pitcher and filled it with fake blue hydrangea flowers.  Because really, you can't go wrong with hydrangeas! Something about them just screams happiness and springtime!  


Have you ever crafted with beans? Yes, I said "beans"...

See that cute little round ball in front of the pitcher?  That's a Styrofoam ball covered in LIMA BEANS! I made this awhile ago so I don't have a tutorial.  But, you seriously just hot glue the beans right onto the ball!


Next to my pitcher I used a cute little stool and birdie...

And a lantern...


 Which had a fake candle in it! Shhh..don't tell!


These sweet little birdies are actually salt and pepper shakers!

And now for the whole table....!!!!
  



One last overview... :)
 Thank you so much for stopping by today!  My hope is that if I prepare for Spring just a little bit early, it will come just a little bit faster!  It's nasty and rainy here in Southern Illinois so I'm hoping for some sunshine tomorrow!
Remember my cute little prego friend from our "Mommy To BEE" post?  Well she's having that sweet little boy this week and tomorrow night I get to take some silhouette pictures for her! I am so excited to see how they turn out and even more excited to meet little Rylyn!
Hope y'all have a great week!

  4. So happy to have found your blog and all the great content. It's incredible the amount of similarities we have (although I am definitely not as talented as you in the DIY department!). I was reading your about page - we also live in a super tiny rural (Texas) town (I use "town" loosely, because it's not even an actual town), I'm married to a cop, we live on 200 acres that is also family land, and were married in early Nov (07) as well!

    Just thought I'd say "hello"! :)

    1. Hey new friend! I'm so glad you found Bonfires and Wine and I'm so glad to have found you also! That's crazy how similar our lives are! My grandma, Paisley's great-grandma, is our "Nana" also! How crazy! The coolest thing about blogging has got to be meeting new friends! :) Have a great day! Thanks for stopping by!
