Spring Fever

I had to make a quick trip to the mall and ended up staying longer than I intended because I was admiring some pretty Spring and Easter tableware and decor at two of my favorite stores, Pottery Barn and Williams-Sonoma! Teal, light and bright greens, and nature-inspired neutrals seem to be big color themes for the spring season. These happen to be some of my favorite colors–no wonder I was so drawn to the store displays! 🙂 (Photos shown in this post are from Pottery Barn and Williams-Sonoma)

At Pottery Barn, I loved all the teal in the table settings displayed right by the front entrance. The tableware looked great with the natural color and texture of woven place mats, along with some burlap and twine accents–so springy and outdoorsy! The inside store display I saw looked very much like the set-up in the photo above, featured on the Pottery Barn website.

And I thought these bunny cupcake stands were sweet–they also work great for mini pies and tarts or cookies!

I also liked these nature-inspired basket fillers

…perfect for creating your own woodland baskets!

The teal-green-neutral combination also looked great in other home accessories…

…like this brightly-patterned pillow.

I thought this embroidered butterfly pillow had a great spring feel, too.

And I loved all the glassware in spring colors, especially the teal!

…and they have a new Botanical Citrus Collection which looks very springy.

You can always find fun baking accessories there, like this Buttercup Cakelet Pan. How cute is that?

And I saw these cookies later on their website–some great Easter cookie decorating inspiration!

Do you have Spring Fever like I do? Have you found any inspiring Easter and Spring decorating, entertaining, or gift ideas out there?

      Yes, Williams-Sonoma usually offers some pretty unique baking items every season! I really like the glasses, too!

      I wish I could take credit for those photos, but they are from the PB and WS sites-mine didn’t turn out that great! 🙂

    A timely post! I was changing the tablecloth yesterday and thinking, “A new, Spring-colored cloth would just perk me right up!”
    W-S is a dangerous store for me… 🙂

    PB is one of my favorite stores to shop. I’ve had Spring Fever for a few days now with the warm weather we’ve had in sunny Fl. Love the tablescape and the glasses. I love to bake too. Might just hop over and browse the baking section. Thanks for sharing.

    Oh how I miss those stores in the States! I especially love the teal plates they are just gorgeous as part of that country farm dinner set table. Take Care, BAM

    Both stores are in my mall and I will have to check everything out. The teal is beautiful and so different! Might be something to do this weekend as I did not make it to my Herb Conference – overslept on Friday and the iffy weather today. Thanks for sharing… 🙂

      Hey Tammy–it’s good to hear from you! You are probably already enjoying beautiful weather out your way–it has been such a long cold winter for us over here!

    I am obsessed with house-décor and love Williams and Sonoma, I can never make a “quick” trip without buying more then I need and getting lost in the store. I saw some of their dishware a few weeks ago as well and all of a sudden I contemplated doing a whole new spring set…until I actually thought about the fact that my little kitchen will not fit seasonally coordinated dishware but I did cave in and bought a platter. They also have lots of fun baking stuff, I love the flower-shaped Bundt pans! Have you been to Pier One or Sur La table? Those are my other favorite stores that I have to limit my trips to! Thanks for sharing 🙂

      I go to Pier 1 often but I’ve never been to Sur La Table! There isn’t one close by, but I will need to try to go there sometime–from what I’ve heard of it, I know I would love the store!
