Five Ways to Use Nests in Spring Décor

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Five Ways to Use Nests in Spring DécorWe have been having some beautiful days here in Georgia and the flowering trees are in full bloom... all signs of an early spring! I am beginning to have the urge to add a little bit of it to my décor as well and nothing says spring to me more than nests! Sooo...I am sharing five ways to add them to your home.

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!

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.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Découpage Egg...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!

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!

Who says your nests have to have eggs? My BLUE AND YELLOW EASTER MANTEL actually has lemons for an added touch of yellow!

  1. Great post filled with lots of great ideas!! Thanks for sharing!!

  2. Yeah I have been waiting to see if our weather changes back to winter. Has been quite Spring like here (western CO) since little while after holidays. I miss real winter, usually Jan/Feb are quite cold but not this year. Never know what we'll get from one day to another.
    Hard to wear my warm ugg like boots and heavy sweaters and scarves/gloves with 50/60 degree days. Been warm enuf some days to hang laundry out.
    I love winter weather with cold temps and lots of snow. Hard to believe had lived in Tucson for 20 yrs. Then San Diego areas for 21 yrs. Then MT for 7 yrs and then we lived in Bowling Green, KY area for 5 yrs. then moved here in 2004.
    Have you always lived in Georgia? If I had my way would be back to MT. Have you traveled the USA any? Think you said had been to France, how incredible that must have been.
    Love all your ideas for nests in Spring decorating. Have been chomping at bit to get out my nests and wreath to decorate but thought had better wait til middle of March at least so I don't get tired of them too soon. Don't have mantel but do have shutter shelf in l/r I love to decorate. In Spring I cover our couch and side chair with vintage tablecloths to add to cottage look.
    Have loved your blog since I discovered it few years ago. Seems like have been reading blogs for long time now. You always have posts that intrigue and inspire me.
    Have lovely week.

  3. I absolutely love using nests for decorating in the spring - these are some wonderful ideas and I cannot wait to turn my attention to spring decor (I'm trying to hold off until March, but the crazy warm weather is not helping my patience!). I'd love if you'd come share this tonight with Party in Your PJs! :)
