Wildcard Wednesday: Signs of Spring .....In My Entry

This time of year always inspires me to do a little nesting........quite literally.......because one of my favorite spring decorations is NESTS.

Last week I shared that one of the spots I like to change seasonally is my set of glass canisters in the kitchen.  Well, another spot I like to change is my entry table.  I think the entry sets the tone for the whole house, and I want to be sure that guests (and ourselves, for that matter) have a pleasant greeting from the time they enter.

So each season I change out the contents of the big metal bowl......grapes & decorative balls for summer, pumpkins & gourds for fall, pomegranates or ornaments for Christmas, and nests & eggs for spring.

A little greenery wrapped around the base of the cream candles also says "spring"!

Join me next week.....same time, same place.....for more signs of spring.

I'm joining with This Blessed Nest for Spring Fling & A Stroll Thru Life for Tabletop Tuesday.  Check them out for more great ideas!


  1. Your entry table is simply gorgeous. I love the scrolled metal detail.

    I have a thing for birds so these nests and eggs are so inspiring to me. Thanks so much for sharing!

  2. Your entry table looks wonderful. I agree that having something special to see when you walk through the front door truly sets the tone for what's to come. I don't really have a formal entry in this house, but have created the illusion of one with an old singer sewing machine that I've had for eons. I always do a seasonal display there. I'm a new follower & hope you'll visit my blog & follow back if it looks interesting to you.

  3. Oh so pretty. I love your nests and using the moss on the candlestick is genius. Beautiful vignette. Thanks so much for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

  4. love all the nature element & the shades of green. there's nothing like seeing the first signs of green.

    thanks so much for linking up with the SPRING FLING!
    have a super weekend.
