Dining Room Vignette

Over the weekend I updated my dining room vignettes.

I have beautiful jars that have been empty since taking down the Christmas decorations.  It was time to fill them with something new.

I have been loving these Robin's eggs from Pottery Barn...but they are pricey...$14 for 8 blue and another $14 for 8 natural colored eggs.  While at Target this weekend, I found a box of 32 Robin's eggs in a combination of the blue and natural for $5.00 - total.  How could I resist that price for 32 eggs... and it came with a bonus of three bird's nest as well.

I bought a jar of river rocks from Home Goods the other day for $3.00.  I filled the jar on the left with the rocks first, then a candle and then some of the bird's eggs.  The other jar is filled with an assortment of green, cream and brown potpourri.  The potpourri was also bought at home goods for $9.99.

Here is a close up.  I love how it speaks to the bird artwork as well as the bird runner I have on my dining room table.

There are the three bird's nests as well as more candles and my tea box.

Here is the vignette on the other side.  I don't love what I have done with this side.  I just can't put my finger on exactly what I don't like.  I love that mirror, but I think it may just be too small for the space.  That might be my issue.  In any case, I filled the remaining jar with more potpourri from Home Goods.  This time in more browns and rusts.
I love the warm colors in this potpourri.

Tomorrow is the big day for my FIRST party.  You can link up any home decor, crafting, sewing etc. that you have been working on.  I can't wait to see what you have been up to.  I will have the link up tonight by 8pm EST.  I hope you will stop by and join the party.  Please tell your friends and help make my first party a success.  Thanks so much.  Looking forward to seeing you there.
