Life has been crazy for me the last few months, so I needed to put together something fast and simple when decorating my fireplace this spring!  I honestly didn’t have time to make a new wreath to go above my fireplace this season and I didn’t have time to create an elaborate mantel either.  So….it was either keep it simple or do nothing at all and doing nothing at all wasn’t an option for me.  😀

SIMPLE THING #1

The inspiration for my spring mantel this year came from these gorgeous blush pink floral bushes.  I just love the deep shade of pink in the center that fades to a lighter shade on the outer edges.  Using floral bushes instead of individual stems makes it super fast and easy to arrange in a container.  I added three stems of eucalyptus (that I cut from a faux eucalyptus bush) to each container for added interest.

SIMPLE THING #2

Lining several galvanized buckets up in a row creates more of an impact and flanking the containers on each side with candlesticks helps to give definition to the spring mantel display.  Can we just stop for a minute and stare at these yummy candlesticks?!?  I picked them up on my recent trip to Magnolia Market.  I didn’t place candles on them since the tops are a bit wonky, but I think that the wonkiness just adds to their charm.

SIMPLE THING #3

Remember my post about K-I-S-S decorating?  The decorating philosophy of mine definitely comes into play anytime that I decorate my fireplace, no matter the season or holiday.  I keep this large wood and metal piece above my fireplace year-round.  It provides me with a great backdrop and provides instant layering and texture.

SIMPLE THING #4

Add a wicker basket filled with a pretty throw and faux greenery on one side of the hearth and a large lantern holding a simple white candle to the other side and you’re done!

See – easy peasy and done in 10 minutes!  What’s your favorite fast and easy decorating trick?

    Beautiful but simple! Love it!

  2. Thanks for the pretty inspiration!

  3. I love the simplicity of everything as well. Also thanks for posting your resources. I really enjoy knowing where I might purchase them as well. You have a very sweet heart. Enjoyed seeing your daughters wedding pics…….such a wonderful gathering of simple but very pretty and welcoming.

  4. You’ve created a beautiful spring mantel. It’s simple, but striking. Great job!

  5. So light and spring-like. I want those candlesticks ?

  6. I think I picked up that same peony bush! I bought several to cut apart to update my peony front door wreath, but they were so pretty, I saved one and added it to an antique silver ice bucket and — voila — a centerpiece is born! Like your large wooden piece, I use a few blue and white porcelain urns and ginger jars as my year round background (they do come down for Christmas to make way for my reindeer and tree collection). I agree that having one piece, or collection of pieces, that are your baseline allows you to add just a few seasonal pieces for a 10 minute makeover. And those wonky candlesticks are to die for!

  7. I love this mantel, beautiful! I am so inspired, after work today I am going to measure to see if the Wood and iron piece from Kirklands will fit good above my mantel!!!! The dark stained one is on sale but I like the white, I might attempt to paint it just to save money even though I have no painting skills lol!

    1. Hi Maureen. It should be fairly easy for you to paint. No specials skills required! 😀
