|HOME|spring mantle

This year I thought I'd change the spring mantle up a bit I still wanted to keep the rabbits and some of the eggs from Easter but I also wanted a more subtle effect.

I felt that the ivory taper candles got lost against our still unpainted hearth wall, so I used some Cath Kidston washi tape to add a bit of colour. The little fame has also been given the washi treatment, it was so quick and easy to do.

I also added some washi tape (make unknown) round the tea lights and love that effect, I will definitely be doing more of this in the future - I'm already trying to think of a colour for the Christmas table!!!! I made the ribbon roses a couple of years ago for Christmas, the idea came from a Kirstie Allsopp Christmas special, I think from 2009.

I'm really pleased with the overall effect and all the flowers are from the garden so when they are past their best I can just replace them and the display still looks nice and fresh. I might even swap them about and mix in some bought ones if I get a bit tired of the look before the summer!
