Simple Spring Mantel with Bunnies and Flowers

I am always rearranging my mantel to reflect the seasons.

For this spring, I kept things simple with black and white.

That way I could coordinate with the black frame on my round mirror.

I have used the black Pier One candlesticks many times in the past.  The white flower pots once held my long-gone evergreens from Christmas.
Let’s see how long the ivy lasts!

For a touch of Easter, I added the little bunnies I just bought at Pier One.  And I wanted to use tulips, but for some reason I couldn’t find them anywhere!

The reddish spring flowers worked as a good substitute.

Since I have some reds in the room, the flowers tie in to the room better than if I had added pink like I envisioned.

White I was trying out different looks,

I took the ivy away for an even simpler feel.

I guess we are getting ready for Easter!

    I love your mantel. Simple and Sophisticated. I think I like it without the ivy best. Unfortunately I don't have a mantel so I have to be content to enjoy others. Very pretty. Have a great week, love, Wanda

    I like the mantle.. I think the pop of color with the flowers just brings it all together.. The bunnies are adorable.. I pulled my Easter stuff out the other day.. I don't have much just a few things here and there. I think I will be posting that to my blog tomorrow.. The mantle looks really nice 🙂

    I love the black and white against the wood. The flowers provide that perfect pop of color.

    This mantel looks so pretty with all the white. I really like it and I wish I had more restraint when it comes to my mantel. It really looks dramatic. You've got such a eye for composition.Leslie (gwen moss)
