Spring Idea House 2014  Part 1  grandparentsplus.com


The Spring Idea House 2014 in our area is always a treat for creative minds! There are  new decorating twists and ideas to start your own creative juices flowing. This old house is redone each season by several decorators and  open for tours in Spring, Fall and Christmas. I always look forward to going to be inspired! The home reflects the current trends and mixes them with vintage finds.

There are so many ideas that I will take you through separate areas of the house for each post. This is Part 1!

The first part is the porch entrance. As you walk in there is an old rustic table set in turquoise and greens.

Notice the cute bird cages on the table and the turquoise trivets used as coasters…..

I noticed that they used floral foam wrapped in a sheet of artificial moss. Vials are filled with astromeria and stuck into the floral foam along with rocks and an artificial bird. OK! I can do that!  I knew I had most of the supplies at home.

Here is my version although I didn’t use the vials, but just stuck the artificial greens right into the floral foam.

Here’s my version on my table. I loved the narrow centerpiece as my table is long and narrow!

On their table, they used a simple idea of brown paper wrapped around a napkin attached by a pin and used as place cards.

This display was on a side table of the porch. The candles are wrapped in an artificial palm leaf. They used artificial Boxwood balls throughout the house on candle holders, in cages, window boxes, and hanging from lights.

A salvaged window is hung as art with metal butterflies added as an accent.

  13. I had to go back and reread every word on this post. I love the Idea House, and I love your rendition of their Spring decor. I love your bird house and table settings every bit as much as the one’s in the Spring Idea House! Lovely! FYI – I bought the ribbon moss at Hobby Lobby last week. It may still be at half price. Visiting from the Thrifty Groove…. Candy

    • Thank you! Great to get a bargain 1/2 price! That’s the way I like it!

  14. It’s all so beautiful! Hugs from Bacon Time.

  15. I love your rendition of the house tour Phyllis. I just bought a bird cage from Michaels and now I have the inspiration I need to finish it. Thanks a bunch.

  16. My favorite without a doubt were birdcages with moss/flowers. Need to remember where I saw some moss in ribbon shape, think was Michaels. The bird cages they featured looked like ones I’ve gotten at Michaels. The ones in first photos are very thin, not a birdcage but a show case for what ever. Wonder where they got those? Do you have any idea? Love the turqoise and aqua brightly painted cages, those are couple of my favorites especially for Spring and Summer. THanks for the inspiration.

    • I haven’t seen them at Michaels or Hobby Lobby. The only place was in the shop for the Idea House. You might google them and find them in your area. Most likely they would be in a gift, floral or decorator shop.
      Thanks for stopping by!

      • Saw them online at Hobby Lobby. Hope this helps!

  17. What a fun idea – wish we had that around here !
    And what a wonderful way to find inspiration – love all the birdcages !

  18. Love those birdhouses! Yours is a good as theirs 🙂
