Farmhouse Inspired Mantel with Bunnies and Tulips

Since my fireplace mantel needed a spring update, I decided to decorate a farmhouse inspired mantel this year!  After all, who doesn’t love anything farmhouse-inspired these days?  Plus, my mantel is made from a 100 year old piece of barn wood so a farmhouse style definitely works for me.

Farmhouse Inspired Mantel with Tulips:

With the abundance of tulips in all the stores, it only made sense to use them on my spring mantel.  After all, they are inexpensive and just perfect for spring.  I purchased two bunches of tulips for $6.99 each at Wegman’s Supermarket.  You can’t get much better than that!

Since I own a collection of vases and pitchers, I divided the tulips among them and displayed them across the mantel.  Filling two more glass jars with faux eggs added a hint of Easter to the mantel.  Recently, I used some of those eggs in an Easter table setting.

Easter Bunnies everywhere!

With Easter approaching, I figured bunnies were necessary!  On a recent shopping trip to Homegoods, I picked up this adorable burlap banner and I love the way it picks up the green from the tulips.  Such a great find and the burlap feels very farmhouse inspired to me. 

In addition to the banner, I added two white bunnies from my collection.  For years, I have been using them to decorate for spring and for Easter.

After participating in a recent Easter Blog Hop, I realized I need to step it up with my bunny collection.  As soon as the Easter merchandise goes on sale, I think I will be adding to my collection!

By the way, don’t you just love the puffy little white tails?  It’s the little things that make me happy…

Simple Accessories for a Farmhouse Inspired Mantel:

This simple “spring” sign is just an unpainted wooden piece I picked up at Michael’s a few years ago.  Originally, I planned on painting it but the plain wood works well with the farmhouse inspired mantel.  After all, raw wood has that rustic feel.  Maybe I will just keep it that way.  Obviously, it’s not on the top of my priority list!

Colors of Spring:

Although white tulips would have looked pretty against my stone fireplace, I decided to go with lilac colored tulips for my farmhouse inspired spring mantel this year.  Since I was already using white bunnies and a white pitcher, I wanted a bit more color.  Plus, the lilac felt more like Easter to me.

Like I mentioned, I used some of my faux eggs.  This is another simple way to add some Easter color!

Repeating the Neutrals on a Farmhouse Inspired Mantel:

Since I wanted keep the farmhouse inspired mantel as the focal point, I kept the accessories below my fireplace very neutral.

To add some texture, I added a seagrass basket for the firewood and I repeated the white with an orchid.

Also, I repeated the white with my bunny planter.  Fortunately, it’s the perfect size to store our fireplace kindling.  I love to find several uses for an item.  Last year, I used the bunny planter in one of my favorite table settings.  Gee, I wonder where it will show up next year!
