Airy Dining Room Table Arrangement...And New Etsy Items

What a wonderful spring day it was here today! We are finally drying out from all of the rain...yipee! It has me in a spring fluffing mood! I need to get in a spring cleaning mood...BAD! Maybe next week...lol. This arrangement has been in here for a while now and it just keeps evolving and changing. I am eventually going to change this table up, but for now I thought I would just rework the arrangement and keep it for a while longer. I pulled some of the bigger flowers out and added some smaller brick red flowers and berries. I love using silk arrangements because they add color and life to a room!




I am very picky about the silk flowers I use in arrangements. I like them to look as real as possible. When you use berries and sticks and foliage I think it adds interest and texture to the arrangement making it look more real.








Love the airyness!




Speaking of silk flowers...I recently listed this cute birdhouse arrangement in my Etsy store. I sold one like it the other day.

I also listed this beautiful photo album...





And this rich colored tassel...




And look at this frame! That crown is so sparkly! Click HERE to visit my store.



I will have an announcement about a blog party I am going to host soon. I have wanted to host a weekly party for a while now and finally decided that now is the time! I'm working out some details, but will tell you about it soon!! Have a great Thursday!



Thank you for your nice comments on the picture of Harley and me! He's a sweetie!

Patti said...

Just lovely items! Your floral arrangement is so beautiful...I love how it just relaxes around the sides! And your dining colors are my favorite, too!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I love that arrangement, Kristen! I like that you add texture and I really like the pieces that "hang" over the sides. It's a great money saver if you can rework what you've got.

Farica said...

Love, love, love your dining room arrangement! I agree with your comment regarding silk flowers. I am picky about those as well. The wrong silk flowers can totally ruin the look you are trying to achieve. The birdhouse arrangement is adorable as well! Trying to think of a place I could put that myself!!!

Very pretty, Kristen! I love all of your work, you never disappoint.
I understand being picky about the florals and greenery you use. I'm the same way. Faux florals have come a long way over the years!
I hope you have a wonderful day.
happy Cinco De Mayo!~ L
