Today I’m sharing how to create a spring chair vignette with flowers. I’ll show you how to use items you may already have in your home to create a welcoming spring arrangement.

Are you ready for our March Pinterest challenge? Good, because we’re sharing spring chair vignettes today. These are so easy, and I know you’re going to want to create one too!
If this is your first time to join us for a Pinterest challenge, this is how it works. Our host Cindy over at County Road 407, selects a photo for us to recreate, and each participant puts their own spin on the photo.
The best part is seeing how everyone interprets the image, and we always have an interesting variety. Be sure to click through all the links at the end of my post.

Our photo inspiration this month is from Jamie of Anderson & Grant. For a closer look, click on her post, Simple Spring Vignette.
Here’s what I’m pulling from Jamie’s photo to create a vignette for our entryway.

Spring Chair Vignette With Flowers
We talk about vignettes all the time in decorating, and I suppose we all have our own definition of what a vignette is. To me a vignette is a grouping of items, usually in odd numbers, arranged in a pleasing manner that draws the eye.
In the home we create vignettes on a tabletops, shelves, mantels and sometimes even on a chair. The vignette I’m creating is a seasonal arrangement for spring to welcome guest into our entryway.
I’ll be using items in the list above plus a few more to create a spring garden arrangement. I’m borrowing this cafe chair from our upstairs bathroom. It’s a nice size, and I love the texture of the cane seat.
Basket of Flowers
The focal point of my a garden theme spring vignette is a basket of flowers. These beautiful flowers are African daises in pink and purple. Before placing the flowers in this cute basket I’m adding a crumpled paper sack in the bottom to use as a platform.
I’m also lining the inside of the basket with a paper sack. That way you won’t be able to see the plastic bag I’m placing inside to waterproof the basket. Since these are live flowers, I want to keep them moist, so I can eventually plant them in our garden.
To hide the white plastic flower pots the flowers are currently in, I’m adding a little Spanish moss. It works great as camouflage and looks interesting hanging over the sides of the basket.
For most of my projects I love using fresh flowers. Although if you want your arrangement to last all season you may want to use faux flowers, especially if you have some you enjoy using from year to year.
Bunny Figurine makeover
I have to admit I found quite a few spring items at Target this year that I couldn’t resist, including this cute concrete bunny. Of course since I can’t seem to leave well enough alone, and gave it a coat of paint.
I’m using FolkArt Terra Cotta paint in Pueblo for the base coat, with a lighter coat of Terrazzo Tan on top. Oh the power of paint!
The little bunny with it’s terra cotta makeover looks pretty cute in my garden theme arrangement. It’s a bit on the small size, so I’m placing it on a book to give it more height.
Garden Theme Spring Vignette
To finish out the garden theme of my spring chair vignette with flowers I’m including a healthy ivy plant next to the bunny. I’m also including some of my tiny flower pots. I think of anything that says garden more than flowers and clay pots!
You may notice I have photos with and without Easter eggs to give you an idea of how they look. A few are hiding under the ivy leaves and one is in a tiny pot on the side. These are my wooden keepsake eggs that you can read about in this post.
