A Coastal Inspired Tablescape for Spring...

It's been a crazy winter across the country...with piles of snow all over the place.  And here we are in South Florida where it feels like Spring is already here.  This past weekend...the temperatures were in the high 70's and low 80's..with lots of sunshine and the fantastic weather inspired me to bring some Spring into my home. 

So I thought I'd start with a simple tablescape....using some of my favorite things.  Most of the pieces came from my favorite Etsy Shops - except the flowers and seashells and the wrapped books (from Ballard Design).  


I love bird's nests...and I put in a piece of coral for that sea inspired touch.
These flowers remind me of Spring.











Hope you enjoyed this little touch of Spring.

Beautiful as always. I am LOVING the floats! I love that you included the bird's nest with your coastal decor. It must be a sign, as I have fallen in love with birdcages, but have wondered whether or not I would be able to incorporate it into my beachy stuff. Hmmm, the bird's nest looks perfect in there, do you think a cage would be pushing it?

A beautiful tablescape. I love the seaside colors. I have a few glass floats, but I'm always looking for more.

What a beautiful display, Debbie! I am especially loving the sweet little bird in the nest, and the bottle with the lotion label is gorgeous! How lucky you are to have such warm temps! It was in the low 30s today here, felt like a heat wave:)!

It is beautiful..and I love that I can see your pool through the window. It is Spring in Florida..and for those that have never been and think all the seasons are the same..there are very subtle, but sure, changes with each season. It is feeling like Spring is there for you! Send some this way, will you? Hugs-Diana

Beautiful tablescape. The pink flower in the glass jar is gorgeous. It all looks very coastal (coming from a land locked girl).

Beautiful display with the glass, flowers and bird nest. Love the glass bottle. Always looking for unique glass bottle to add to my coastal theme.

Gorgeous! My friend, Cindy Adkins, from Whimsical Musings suggested I visit your page. I am definitely going to look around. The little I've seen is beautiful.

I'm attempting to transform our den into a beach cottage retreat on a budget of loose change. I have TONS to go because I just started and I might even try to paint my piano. Sigh...I know..scary. Love your ideas.

Thanks for sharing your gorgeous creations. Much love!

This is such a pretty vignette! Maybe I should look around and get my bird nests and display them with some star fish! I still hope to buy some glass floats...some day! You have such wonderful style! ♥
