Spring Mantel: Peony "Spring Banner" Wreath, handmade bobbin spools and Radiant Orchid Artwork - Major Hoff Takes A Wife

Spring Mantel: Peony "Spring Banner" Wreath, handmade bobbin spools and Radiant Orchid Artwork

I've had some requests for my Spring Mantle so I'm sharing it with you today. It's pretty basic, with lots of Spring-y colors! I love the radiant orchid, the hot pink and light pink, the whites, the green from the flowers, the violet from the oversized glass candle holders, and the aqua from the mason jar and the lace on a spool. I'll warn you the post is picture heavy, but I wanted you to get a sense of the scale of all the pieces. My house doesn't get much sunlight on the mantle, and indoor photography is not my forte (neither is outdoor!), but I hope you enjoy the pictures non the less!

The mantle has the same cherry mirror that stays up all year long (It matches Hub's bookcases). In the center I have my Spring wreath (would you like to hear more about how I made that?). Each side flanks the wreath with flowers and handmade bobbin spools that are made to look like the old vintage ones!

Here is a close up of the aqua lace on a homemade bobbin. I bought it in a package of 4-5 at Michaels. The white string was part of that as well.

A Ball jar that I picked up (compete with lid!) at Round Top last year. It has some colored stones that my kids bought me from Dollar Tree last year for Christmas.

The white vase was a thrift store find, and the violet glass candle holders were from Target during the fall clearance season.

I love the metal cap on the handmade spools.

The wreath I made earlier this Spring. I adore Peonies! We lived by a farm that had several fields of them in Oregon and I really miss driving by those fields!

  1. Pretty, pretty! Now come do mine. :)

  2. So lovely. The mixtures of the muted pinks and greens is so fabulous!

    1. Thanks Kim--this is about as "girly" as this house of boys can get! LOL!

  3. I love it! I don't think I'll ever get a mantel photo up because ours has a tv on it...and wires all over the place...so it's not really pretty...I love the colors you used! :)

    1. Thanks! Our tv console is very boring, ha!

  4. It's beautiful! I live how my eye bounces from one element to the next - great balance.


Thanks so much for commenting! I appreciate it and love communicating with you!
