One area I always enjoy decorating is our buffet. Perhaps you might not know, but, this is the fourth buffet we’ve had! If you like to see two before (don’t have photos for first one) click here and here. I’ve had my Spring Buffet Vignette done for a while and just now getting to sharing it now.
My vignettes always start with a thrift store find…
that becomes the creative spark for the vignette. When I spotted this oil painting of a pair of white ducks I just had to have it. It signifies Spring!
What’s that saying? Love Springs eternal, that’s what I though when I saw the two looking at each other.
Being the center piece of the vignette..
I added two cross-stitched geese I finished recently (only took me over 30 years). Mrs. Geese with her young chicks.
Mrs. Geese provides a spot light for the vignette on the left. The old enamel dish? was a recent find for a buck, and made a great planter.
the area was filled in with some of my vintage Warwick dishes also used in my Easter tablescape. aqua scale, chenille eggs, nestled inside a vintage bed spring.
The right side of the buffet…
The dad, Mr. Duck, who is a very proud father!
on top of a vintage soup tureen is a terra cotta hen spray painted white.
vintage Warwick cups and sauces with a very pretty butter dish with lid.
A blue pompom garland, a GW scarf found for less than 2 bucks, was hung over the mirror. A very quick garland!
Warwick vegetable tureen. On either side are two vintage glass lamp globes. I pick them up whenever I find them and they are so inexpensive and an easy way to add some charm. You can also use them as a vase, inside a vase, for fresh flowers, just place a bottle or small vase inside holding water. Some of last year’s garden dried flowers were used.
Spring, what a wonderful time!
