April styling the seasons

styling the seasons – April

April styling the seasonsI’m very excited about this month’s Styling The Seasons as it’s just a little bit special. Styling the Seasons is Katy and Charlotte’s monthly project to encourage each of us to take a little time to think about the new season and to style a space in your home inspired by what that month means to you. It’s a great way to mark each month throughout the year, rather than allowing all the months to fly by in a busy fuzz, which would otherwise be my natural tendency!

For April, at{mine} has teamed up with the project to form #StylingSpringAtMine and to hold a fabulous event at Homemade London on the 29th April. Caroline from Wild Rubus will be leading us in a floral wreath workshop with flowers supplied by Bloom & Wild and Lou from Little Green Shed will be giving us the ‘how to’ on May Day posies! It’s sounds pretty lovely and even better is that you can win one of the 13 places to join us at the event. All you need to do is style a space in your home for April and upload to your blog, Instagram or Twitter tagging Katy and Charlotte and using #StylingSpringAtMine. Apartment Apothecary and Lotts and Lots will be judging along with nine other at{mine} beta bloggers, including myself (cue squeal of excitement), Wild RubusMakelight, Lapin Blu, Growing Spaces, Lobster and Swan, A Quiet Style, Little Green Shed and Cate St Hill. Caroline and Olivia from Bloom & Wild and at{mine} will also be acting as judges. The 13 judges will all pick our favourite and 13 lucky people will get to hop on board for the 29th. Sounds ace! Go ahead and get styling and don’t forget to use the hashtag so we can see all your beautiful entries and do check out the other judges contributions.

easter table

It was a lovely post day when I received my invite to the event, along with a gorgeous package of these flowers from Bloom & Wild! I couldn’t wait to get cracking (no egg pun intended) and start styling them for my Spring table.

If any of you follow me on Instagram you may get a slight inkling that I love Spring! Sometimes I feel a bit like a broken record but year on year it never fails to put a smile on my face. Walking anywhere takes a little longer because I’m so easily distracted by all the new blooms and greenery. It reminds me of how fitting it is to have Easter in Spring as it’s all about new life, hope, a chance to start a fresh in Jesus’ righteousness rather than our own, being washed clean and being made ready for eternity. Jesus graciously gave up his life so we could have new life even though we naturally reject God. I look at the animals being born and coming out of hibernation, the dead, frost bitten plants being revived to new beauty and each day being filled with just that bit more light rather than darkness and the truth of the Bible seems to sing. I guess the two words that I think of at this time particularly, although hopefully all year round too, is grace and new life.

bloom & wildIt wasn’t exactly a tough job, working with these delightful flowers. I wanted them to be the focal point to focus on the idea of new life and growth, along with the eggs that promise the same. It came together as a sort of Spring table which hopefully looks laid back and welcoming. I would never usually think to put deep purple with ochre yellow but I gave it a try and apparently that colour combo is pretty striking!
