It's Spring in my dining room!

I am loving the signs of spring popping up around here!

My husband pruned some of his parents fruit trees the other day and brought home the branches to throw in the burn pile. I rescued some and brought them into the house.

Fruit tree blossoms in a mason jar(actually a spaghetti sauce jar).
Yes please!

I love the simplicity of this...so sweet and pretty.

The table runner is two placemats placed side by side.

and some throwaway branches from pruning = a FREE tablescape for Spring.

It's even pretty from down here! ;)

Happy Spring!

Linking up with these lovely linky parties:)

The branches look beautiful, Amy. Love that you're still rocking the adorable tealights!

We are currently living in Germany and the tradition for Easter is to use cut branches as your Easter tree to hang hand decorated, blown, eggs. I love how it brings the Spring indoors! Your branches are stunning and the candles are lovely.
