I created my vignette upon our fresh new console cabinet, since it was the perfect neutral backdrop for all things summery.
My love of pink is clear in this little set-up, but I also brought in a few other summery colors, like cool blues, bright greens and a touch of yellow. I centered the 'scape around a vase full of beautiful pink tulips (when they pass, I'll probably switch them out for a vase of lemons and play up the yellow).
Above the tulips, I hung a string of homemade flags, which I made out of scrapbook paper and ribbon.
To the left, we have a large letter R (since we like to remind ourselves often that we are Reisfelts...) grouped with a framed picture from several summers ago (to bring back sweet summer memories), and a beautiful little canister gifted to me at my bridal shower. I love the simple flower pattern on it and the pale colors definitely speak of summer.
Over on the right, I created another little grouping of things found around the apartment. I used two books to create some height on this end and added a little white ceramic bird for whimsy. You may remember this candle tin from Pier One. I love the pattern on it, even though the candle has long since burned out.
I also added a white vase with some simple plant clippings on top of the books. I love the combination of green and white!
I'm drawen colors and freshness of this vignette- it's like a little spring-almost-summer party right when you walk in the front door. It makes me oh-so-excited for the upcoming summer months!
