Easter Decorations for the Dining Room

Posted by on Mar 12, 2013 in brass, dining room, easter, thrift store | 30 comments

Today was a beautiful Spring day!

I painted furniture most of the afternoon.

I will be sharing some of those painting projects in the days to come.

Yesterday I gave you a look at the Easter decorations in the foyer.

Today I am going to invite you in to look around my dining room.

One of my favorite things in my entire house is in this room.

Miss Mustard Seed Chair @ DaisyMaeBelle

It is not this Miss Mustard Seed milk painted chair.

Although, I do love it!

Easter Decorations @ DaisyMaeBelle

It is not my hydrangea wreath.

Easter Decorations @ DaisyMaeBelle

Or my wire bird cage.

Easter Decorations @ DaisyMaeBelle

It is not any of my brass collection.

Or even this great pottery vase that I scored last week at the thrift store.

White Ironstone Plates @ DaisyMaeBelle

It is not my ironstone platters that I found at Goodwill.

Burlap Carrots @ DaisyMaeBelle

Or these burlap carrots that I will show you how to make tomorrow.

Easter Decorations @ DaisyMaeBelle

It is not the crepe paper eggs hanging from the chandelier.

(No, I did not make those. . .)

Easter Decorations @ DaisyMaeBelle

It does sit among my collection of nests on this table.

Can you spot it?

Easter Decorations @ DaisyMaeBelle

It is not this beautiful nest.

Easter Decorations @ DaisyMaeBelle

It is this one.

Do you see that purple curly ribbon?!

I have collected many bird’s nests over the years (only the empty ones!)

This is the only one that I have ever seen that was actually decorated.

That mama bird decorated her nest!

She twisted that ribbon through the entire thing.

That is a bird after my own heart!

  1. ah, that is so cute! i love when birds use odd things to make their nests. it reminds me how resourceful animals are. I love your white platters, skirted table and that hydrangea wreath. You have a very welcoming dining room!

  2. How do you “clean” your bird nests so no little critters enter the house?

    • I put them in a Ziploc bag and keep them in the freezer for a few weeks. I forget who told me to do that? But, it seems to work!

  3. Your dining room is gorgeous Melissa. Everything in it is so well placed and gorgeous. All your arrangements are so pretty. I am particularly envious of your white ironstone platters. They are incredible. I love their simplicity. I have a small one I got in KY that is similar to yours but not nearly as exquisite. If you ever get tired of them you know who will buy one of them from you.
    OH do I ever wish I could go to KY for some shopping and visit you in TN. We could go to Jo-Ann’s ETC in Rivergate. I’d so love to meet your family. Happy Days, keep up the great work as I know you will.

  4. your dining room is so pretty and all the spring accents suit it so well! it looks lovely!

  5. I keep clicking on your stuff ~ your home is so cute! I LOVE the wire bird cage… swoon!
    I found you today at Some Day Crafts Linky. I hope you get a chance to stop by my blog and leave a comment, too!

  7. I love that! What a precious find!

  8. I just love all things bird related. Love the nest prints you have on the wall. Can you share where to find those?

    • I bought those about 5 years ago from a shop here in Murfreesboro called The Briar Patch. I have not seen them anywhere else since then? Sorry!

  9. Soooooo pretty!!
