Spring Time in the Dinning Room

Today on this beautiful spring morning I have a newly redecorated Dinning Room to share with you.

The finishing touches were added just this morning.  How about that for a great start to the day!  LOL.

 I am very much enjoying the pretty, simplicity of the room and hope you do as well.

On the table, a simple white soup tureen is filled with gorgeous white roses.  
I just love white roses, don't you?

So classic.

For a little something special, I added a pretty silver tea-light holder ...

...and a vintage set of salt and pepper shakers.

For an extra layer of softness, I placed a pretty table runner width-wise across the table.

I found this gorgeous fabric at the thrift store just last week.  
It was just long enough to fit the table perfectly.
This morning, I cut it to the size I wanted and frayed the edges.  That was all I needed to do for a pretty springtime table runner.  The subtle hint of blue helps blend the Dinning Room into the colors I have going on in the adjoining Living Room. 

Behind the table I kept the shelf, the blackboard and my favorite sign.

Hoping for a simple, airy looking display I rounded up a few favorite items to help me out.

Items like pretty, white pitchers and serving pieces.

And clear glass candlesticks for some sparkle.

To help down-play the black of the chalkboard, a homemade boxwood wreath was hung over the edge of the frame.  I think it added a  fresh springlike look.

If your interested in making your own boxwood wreath, you can take a look at the tutorial on how I made mine here.

All in all, I think I accomplished my goal of a pretty, airy look for the space.  
I'm liking the fact that it seems to have a very classic look also, something I've been craving lately.

Hope you all have a wonderful day and I'll talk to you soon,
