1. In a wreath
The addition of a simple nest creates a beautiful spring greeting for your guests right at the front door. And nothing could be easier than my BURLAP AND DOGWOOD SPRING WREATH!
2. Added to a centerpiece
Tuck a nest into your centerpiece to give it that spring feel. Here I have added it to a galvanized planter for a FRENCH COUNTRY SPRING.
In my RUSTIC EASTER CENTERPIECE, a small nest gets added attention...
...when it holds a pretty BOTANICAL DECOUPAGE EGG for a touch of spring color. It's a great way to pretty up those inexpensive plastic eggs!
Here's a little nesting vignette starring my FRENCH DECOUPAGE EGGS that got the same treatment using French dictionary pages and sheet music...
...and another starring a nest atop a French bottle drying rack with my POTTERY BARN INSPIRED EASTER EGGS that spell out Happy Easter.
3. In a tablescape
Nests can also be a fun way to add a touch of spring to your table as in my POTTERY BARN INSPIRED PLACE CARD HOLDERS. They're easy to make...just assemble them!
Or use a deconstructed nest atop a plate for a POTTERY BARN INSPIRED EASTER TABLESCAPE.
4. On the mantel
Who says your nests have to have eggs? My BLUE AND YELLOW EASTER MANTEL actually has lemons for an added touch of yellow!
5. Under a cloche
A cloche is an oh-so-frenchy was to display a FAVORITE LITTLE NEST surrounded by vintage finds.
And don't forget...a nest doesn't have to be purchased! Here's a real nest found in my yard filled with sweet bluebird eggs from an abandoned nesting box. This one stars in a SIMPLE CENTERPIECE.
Or create your own with my easy PAPER MACHE BIRD'S NESTS....as fun to make as they are inexpensive!
I am already eyeing all the surfaces of my home and deciding where to start decorating for spring! How about you? Are you itching to get started, too?
Remember to pin it!
