Spring Mantel with an Added Element

I've been working on my Spring Mantel and have a couple of versions to show you. Here's the first version. 

The left end of the mantel stays the same in both versions. I used a stemmed hurricane with an aqua candle, my aqua vase, a small floral arrangement of pinks and whites, and a white bird. I think I am happy with the end side of the mantel.

Now to the right end. I am thinking it doesn't have enough color or pop. My walls are an off white and the mantel is white so not much color going on.

I do have an inexpensive cheap small springy wreath that I have been carrying around in my SUV for a few weeks. I purchased it at Goodwill for $2.00 with no plans how to use it but thought the colors could easily work with something Spring. 

I think I like the balance at each end a little better now. Take a look and see what you think.

What do you think? Would you use  the small wreath on the mantel even though I have a larger wreath handing over the mantel?

  1. Judy, your mantel is really pretty. That blue is so fresh and springy. The wreath is stunning! I love big kind of unruly looking wreaths. Does that make sense?

  2. I think your mantel looks just perfect! The small (cheap!) wreath adds the right touch. My mantel is looong & dark, so it's kind of difficult for me to get a look that's pleasing to me. Your photos might just help...

  3. I like it with both wreaths as it puts some color on that side.
    Very pretty.
