I’m going to start by saying this Spring vignette is NOT a sponsored post – not that it matters, I only accept sponsored posts from companies I use and believe in – but for the record, this one is not.
With Spring-like temperatures basting our Vitamin-D deficient bodies here in SouthWestern Ontario – it has everyone hoping, wishing and thinking SPRING!
I’m right there with you – bring on the sunshine and flowers!
I know this is just a tease by Mother Nature. There is no way Ontarians will get away without at least one more snow before the official start of Spring. More likely we’ll get several more bouts (if tradition holds), but I can bring a little Spring to the inside and wait.
I was at a craft store the other day – one that rhymes with schmichaels – and I was astounded at their flower market! They have a HUGE selection and the flowers are very life-like… and the best part was that they are also extremely affordable.

I wanted to create a Spring vignette / Easter vignette for my coffee table so I picked up this bunch of faux flower peonies for $14.99 (Cdn).
That is a LOT of blooms in one bundle.
You can’t buy peonies for $14.99, much less a bouquet like this (which will last forever).
I got out my wire cutters and snipped off each bloom so that the stem was 1″-2″ longer than the depth of my vase.
You could insert some floral foam into your vase if you like and then tuck the stems in for rigidity, but these silk peonies are pretty full and held themselves in place perfectly.
Look at how real these look!
From the subtle shading to the tiny yellow stamens in the centres. This bunch even came with blooms in different stages of opening. I can’t tell you how pleased I am with the quality.
There were several colours to choose from, but I thought the pale pink worked best in my grey room and in that blue and white vase.
I tucked my vase into my ottoman tray, sprinkled some faux eggs around, added a few candle sticks and my wood bunny (tutorial coming soon) and voilà – a gorgeous Spring vignette for your coffee table.
Okay Mother Nature – I can handle more snow – as long as I’m tucked away inside with my little piece of Spring.
Have a great one!
