Blooming Springtime Mantel Decor

While spring flowers are in bloom, bring them inside for a blooming springtime mantel decor. The azaleas are stunning so I decided to decorate the mantel while they last.

A combination of white azaleas, vintage containers, and DIY projects fill the Spring mantel with farmhouse charm. Although the mantel is filled with neutral colors, the vintage pieces provide plenty of texture to keep the eye moving to find the next treasure.

A vintage sap bucket anchors one end of the mantel. The bucket, filled with white azaleas, sits beside a stack of antique books, which is the foundation for a DIY book page flower pot filled with rosemary. More azalea stems and a DIY grapevine topiary round out this end of the mantel.

Pretty in Pink Spring Mantel

If you prefer a colorful springtime mantel decor, check out the same mantel filled with pink azaleas. I was so excited about all these gorgeous blooms that I’m sharing two options.

First, you know I love using milk glass in my farmhouse decor. It’s a versatile and budget-friendly option for brightening your home for spring.

A milk glass cake stand serves as the centerpiece of the farmhouse Spring mantel decor. It is surrounded by greenery and azalea stems. While a bird’s nest with a mini white porcelain bird rests in the center of the stand.

A stunning bouquet of pink azaleas fills a large white milk glass vase to help brighten one end.

The other end of the mantel is styled with three bud vases, a compote filled with blooms, and a grapevine topiary.

More Pink Azaleas

If you don’t collect milk glass, you can still fill your mantel with blooms. This Springtime mantel decor is less formal but just as magnificent. You can’t beat fresh blooms.

I couldn’t resist adding my recent DIY Book Page Flower Pots for another Springtime mantel decor idea. They add a rustic farmhouse style to the mantel.

The decoupage old book page pots combined with a DIY topiary and several pieces of moss decor enhance the shabby chic mantel style.

Blue and White Classic Mantel

I’ve been obsessing over classic blue and white accessories since I decorated for a Chinoiserie dinner party. I also pulled lots of blue and white into the living room. So, next, the mantel gets a major restyle with classic blue and white for Springtime.

The LED black lamps provide subtle lighting in the evenings.

Rustic Blue and White Decor

Next, using some of the same Springtime mantel decor pieces, you can create a rustic feel with just a few tweaks. A terra-cotta pot and a rattan box help to add more texture to the ceramic blue and white containers.

Another option for adding more texture is using old vintage books with faded covers.

A few tarnished brass candlesticks complete another version of the blue and white Spring mantel.
