If you’re anything like me, you’re much anticipating Spring! Last week I shared some faux houseplant inspiration and mentioned that I would be sharing my live plants this week! Well, the time is here! And let me just say, I’m a solid 3 (almost 4) weeks and the plants are still alive ☺️ Folks, this is a big deal! Let’s hope it stays that way! Today I’m sharing my Spring mantel design!
My design inspiration came from the beautiful live plants I snagged while on a shopping trip to Aldi. I wasn’t expecting to come home with plants, yet I came home with three! Even went and bought more little ones later that day! Their bold, whimsical greens made me feel alive! And after a long winter here in Ohio, that was feeling I was absolutely aching for!
I knew that I already had the prettiest, naturally- aged terra cotta pots at home to transplant them in! Needless to say, it was a match made in plant heaven because the ivy fit perfectly! I ended up adding my pathos plant to my heirloom crock and I’m obsessed! I haven’t decided for sure where my crazy fern is going just yet, but for now it’s in a vintage coal bucket.
It’s truly safe to say I’m absolutely obsessed with how it all comes together. The mercury glass and antique gold pairs perfectly with the plants! It’s such a simple design. And I love that most of all! I will say, it is still a work in progress. I would like to add more terra cotta pots, another crock and more plants!
I’m sure I’ll be changing it up and updating soon, so stay tuned! Thanks for stopping by ♥️
