7 Simple Spring Vignette Ideas with Balsam Hill

Can you believe that April is just around the corner? 

April means that spring will definitely be on the way- even if the temperatures have been more on the chilly than warm side recently.  I love to decorate the house with a sprinkle of seasonal charm - and 
my fav go to design element for spring decor? 
Pretty sure you have a good idea of what it is.

Earlier this month, I shared a few of the new French Country Florals in my line at Balsam Hill
and today it is all about how to add a touch of spring in your home in a snap
and without redecorating an entire room.
I am talking about vignettes. 

A vignette is such an easy way to bring a new look to a room with just a 'moment'
in your decor.
Meaning- a wreath on a cupboard door or above the mantel-and a flower arrangement
on the counter to add that touch of spring oomph.

I wanted to share a handful of ideas today- and  I had the hardest time deciding which wreath to use- 
so I thought I would share each one with you.

#1. White and Bright

Love love love this white forsythia wreath.

I am one of those girls who likes to keep it simple in designs and florals
and this wreath is so charming and elegant.

I placed it in my blushing office- and love how the white, golds and blush 
mingle to perfection. 

#2. Blooming White Wreath

This is one of the wreaths from my collection- and is perfect if you want a few more 'blooms' 

I shared a bit about it recently-
but it actually started out as an arrangement that Balsam Hill dreamed up a wreath version of.
It turned out so pretty- and it adds a definite pop of spring with the thistle- while being subtle otherwise. And I love the bits of Queen Annes Lace and artemesia mixed in with the anemone.

#3. Bold and Beautiful

I saw this wreath while on set for a video with Balsam Hill and fell in love instantly.
All gorgeous bold shades of some of my favorite colors- 
this is not a wreath that has a quiet subtle presence. 

Gorgeous against that blush wall... I might be obsessed.

#4. Pop of green all the time

Of course, one of my favorites and one of yours- 
the spring green beauty of the Marseille Wreath.

This wreath is perfect for adding a touch of spring green and cottage style charm with just a touch of florals added in.
This is also from my collection and I absolutely love all the photos you have been sharing with me 
of where you have been using this one.  I have such talented readers!

And of course I have to share 2 of my favorite arrangements for adding a touch of spring
because these are so easy to use on a mantel, on a table, in the bathroom on the counter 
and even in the center of a table when entertaining.

Blooming Buckets

These are both blooming buckets- but in different ways.

#5. Bucket of Blooms

The Brittany Rose is full of vibrant spring colors and pretty farmhouse style charm
Filled with garden roses and silver brunia- it creates a delicious vignette on the counter 
or in the bathroom. 

#6. Simple natural charm 

And for more subtle spring touches- my personal favorite- the Loire Valley.
I am obsessed with the mix of florals and greenery and how tall and stately this one is.

It is gorgeous in the kitchen and on the dining table- and I do love to add that height
 on the mantel as well. 

#7. Give me all the topiary trees 

Add a bit of Olive Love - okay- and Rose tree love.
I am obsessed with Olive tree topiaries and with rose tree topiaries- 
and these are perfect for plopping in a pot in the kitchen or dining area
for a simple touch of spring.

Each of these items are simple and easy ways to create a vignette 
full of spring sunshine- and enjoy them all year long.
