Spring Fireplace Mantel

Hello Everyone!  Today, I wanted to share with you my son and daughter-in-law’s Spring fireplace mantel that I did a few weeks ago.

Below was the fireplace mantel Winter look.

I switched out the twigs in the white jug and placed faux forsythia branches and made a faux forsythia wreath.

Inside each mason jars, I added mini faux pears in yellow and green.

For the winter, I had placed prickly gum balls inside each mason jar.

  With the weather here lately, I probably should have skipped the Spring look and went right for the Summer look.

As always, thanks for your visit and leaving such sweet comments.  They are always appreciated. 

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

  4. Subtle little changes makes all the freshness in the world.
    I don't think our forsythia is going to bloom or bud this year. I think we lost it to drought.
    Sad.
    I'll enjoy yours on the mantel... ~Pat

  11. How cute the babies are, Gail! The forsythia adds just the right Spring touch, but I think you are right. We will all be decorating for Summer in a matter of weeks with the weather some of us have been getting!

  18. Hello dear Gail,
    The Spring mantel is lovely! The yellow of the faux forsythia is so nice and fresh looking. I need to get some of that for the flower arrangement that I do for our church, it would be the perfect touch of Spring. Just like yours.
    You think of everything, the color of the pears are perfect.
    Have a good day!
    Hugs, Cindy
