A Simple Vignette -- My First on the New Island

Well, I couldn't contain my excitement any longer! After 18 long weeks of renovation chaos, we have a finished kitchen! Well, almost...there's still a relatively small punch list of things for the contractors to do. But it's a working kitchen that I can't wait to share with you!


With everything required to retrieve kitchen and dining items stashed all over the house and decide how to organize them, I haven't had a chance (or the energy, lol) to bring my spring decor out. But I still wanted to style a spring vignette on the island, which is so much more conducive for things like this than our old one was. 

So I made do with the simplest of decor items...

...a bunny, a tall cake plate and vibrant yellow tulips! 


To add an accent color, the bunny is sporting a bright green ribbon left by the leprechauns.

Although the flowers I've used here are faux, tulip buds in my garden are about to burst open in a rainbow of colors.

I know this vignette does not seem very elaborate or terribly creative, but it's a signal that at last things around here are getting back to normal.

And it makes me smile!

  1. Thanks for your comments about my bee tablescape! We went through a kitchen remodel last year, I know what you mean! I love your vignette! I need to start doing small decorations like that more often.

  6. This is my first time here and I think your vignette is very pretty and just elaborate enough. Sometimes less is more. Have a blessed day.

    1. Thanks, Clearissa! Less can definitely have an impact, though the photos aren't always as interesting. At any rate, I'm still enjoying my bunny display!
