As the seasons change, I like to feather my nest in small but big ways.  Creating little vignettes in the areas where we live, or major traffic areas in the house go a long way to making our homes and their inhabitants feel loved.  Today I have 5 easy steps to help you make a spring vignette.

How to Put Together a Simple Spring Vignette.

 

Quick and Easy Simple Spring Vignette in Greens - AnExtraordinaryDay.net

 

First… Choose a theme for your vignette.

Because we’re so anxious for spring after a long cold winter and because we also want to give a nod to St. Patrick’s Day, today we’ve chosen a green and white theme for our little vignette.  Color is an easy theme, but don’t hesitate to choose another type of theme, like nests and eggs, nature finds, seasons, holidays, etc.

 

Second… Select a variety of items in your color scheme.

It’s easy to get stuck at this point because we may think our colors don’t match perfectly.   Look outdoors at God’s creation, have you ever noticed the countless shades of green?  Whether it’s green or some other color, when in doubt, let nature be your guide.

For this vignette, we’ve assembled green ironstone cups and plates, green and white paper luncheon napkins, a white pedestal, faux green sprouts, some faux mossy rocks, and a small pot of faux English daisies.

Shop your home and choose items of different sizes, heights, and textures for your vignette.  Keep in mind that you can layer items.  Here the pedestal raised the dish of sprouts so they would be an intermediate height between the stack of cups and the flowers, plus it allowed for the mossy rocks to be tucked beneath.  If you like the feeling of this vignette, but don’t have these items in your stash, you can shop for some similar faux plants online.

Third… Although not necessary, a tray is the perfect spot for creating a vignette.

It’s super handy, because you can then place a vignette on a table and take it off at dinner time if it’s in the way.  It also helps give parameters in case you’re unsure how large it should be.  I guess you could say it keeps the vignette from sprawling.

This vintage aluminium tray was a thrifted find.The beauty of a tray is that doesn’t require lots of storage space and can be put into use for parties when needed. Plus, it often will create and extra texture for your vignettes.

Fourth… Have fun.

Right at the beginning of assembling a vignette is where it’s easy to quit.  This is the point where we second guess ourselves.  Don’t do that!!  Instead, have fun seeing how you can vary heights and textures.  And even better, see if you can tell a story with your vignette.

In this vignette the cups, plates, napkins, and cookies tell the story.  They hint at a couple of friends gathering for tea and conversation.  Your story can be more complex or it can be something that brings back memories from a day spent away.  I love vignettes that help us remember special events and vacation spots.  And yes… I do leave cookies out just to look at.

Fifth… Make it quick and easy.

Don’t over think things.  A vignette shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes to put together.  Okay, I grant that it might take a few more minutes than that to find things stashed away.  Yes, it happens to all of us.  But, don’t belabor the process.  A vignette is a simple gathering of themed objects.  Quick. Easy. Simple.
