I Love Paris in the Springtime Buffet

I decorated the buffet in the dining room to match the tablescape....I Love Paris in the Springtime....

I filled the large birdcage with Peacocks  and a chandelier....  I have a blingy Paris sign on the front of the birdcage...

In the bird cage is French box that is filled with wine corks and a bird nest...

For the bird cage liner, I used a metal French calendar...

There are some white birds on either side of the birdcage..

On one side of the buffet I have a chair with some French pillows in it....looks like a bird has nested in the pillows! 

There is a rose tree and some spring branches behind the chair....
On the other side of the buffet is a matching side chair....I bought that tree behind the chair at an auction a few weeks ago for $5.
 I like to add as much "up" lighting as I can to a room.  There is an up light behind the chair...

I added some spring flowers and a sweet bird to the tree...


I replaced the simple white curtains with some French fabric ...

The buffet and the room divider have lots of green "grass" on them...
I took advantage of the 80% off sale at HL the other day and bought all they had left...18 pieces!
I hope you have enjoyed touring our "I Love Paris in the Springtime" dining room!

  15. Penny,
    What a beautiful set-up. It all looks gorgeous! Wow, what a bargain on the tree and also on all the HL items. I love a good buy when I find them. Your stained glass window hanging in the background is beautiful. I'm taking a stained glass cutting class right now, so I hope to be able to do something similar one day. Visiting you from Bouquet of Talent party.

  19. Penny!! LOVE that tree and the use of uplights!! I have a few of them too!! Everything is so pretty!! And what a great buy at Hobby Lobby. I have to get to the one that opened up about 30 minutes from us....
    I ran to A.C.Moore this morning and was lucky to find that they still had some of the $1.99 spray paint left so I bought 6 more cans to use on some more yard things. I will have to wait until the end of the week when the weather will be warmer and we will not have any rain.....

    Hugs,
    Deb
