Spring decorating is taking place now and I have finally got all mine done. Spring is starting to show small signs of itself and last weekend I noticed that some of the pussy willow trees were flowering. I instantly gathered a bunch of it for decorations. They are such an essential part of spring that no spring would arrive for me without these.
I also picked up some small daffodils from the store. They make an inseparable pair with the willow.
The few decorations that I wanted to do was a center piece for our dining table. I pretty much knew what I wanted. It had to last through out the spring so fresh flowers were not an option. (Daffodils will get their own place on the balcony when the weather gets a bit warmer.) It also had to fit the overall feeling of the room and I wanted a bird’s nest.
So this is the center piece that I got done. A bit of the willows, moss which I had gathered last autumn (you can just freeze it and the defrost it whenever you needed), a small basket, bird eggs, feathers, hay, twigs and of course birds. That is all that was needed.
In the next post you’ll get to see what I came up with for the kids’ spring decorations.
